Most Helpful Girl
be authentic - the best first dates I've been on was with people either I've known for some time through common interest (incl. work, gym, church) or friends.
I stopped going on dates from online dating apps because I found it to be artificial in the sense that they were less interested in trying to get along and creating a relationship vs. interviewing for specs (job, school, culture) and trying to sleep with me on the first few dates.
Physical attraction and se* is great, but a few hours/days of knowing someone is not enough to be that intimate in my opinion (and only serves the purpose of pleasure)2
