Do you spend as much time picking out an outfit as a girl does? Funny question, but I'm curious because I know that it takes girls forever to match something together. While it looks like guys just throw on something that looks good and heads out the door.
So, do you?

Trust me, we are just as nervous if not more nervous than you are. I usually spend about 2hrs getting ready for a first date. I have to shower, shave, do my hair, put on cologne, pick out the right clothes, decide if I should wear that necklace or that watch, I make sure my skin looks OK, I'm making sure my nails aren't long and unruly, etc.
That doesn't even include preliminary preparation. Yes you heard me correctly. Preliminary preparation.
I'm spending time trying to figure out where to go on the date so you are impressed and don't get bored. I'm learning what I can about you so I don't look like an idiot and not know what to talk about. I'm rehearsing in my head what I'm going to do, what I'm going to say, what questions I should and shouldn't ask, how I should pick you up, how I should sit, how I should say good bye, etc. I've even literally spent a night just coming up with a list of question that I wrote down and then put in my phone so I can run off to the bathroom and look at them in case the conversation went stale or just act like I'm getting a text, while I'm actually looking at one of my questions.
The point is, we stress just as much as you do, if not more. We are not these machine like, over confident creatures who have zero negative emotions. Maybe there are handful of guys who are just freaks of nature, or are simply so successful with women, that they don't get nervous because they are going on 100 dates a year. The reality though, is 99% of guys get nervous and spend a lot of time getting ready and preparing for a date.0
