The above quote came from a friend who was laughing me with as I recounted a date to her over the phone. I was pointing out how in the early stages of dating, there are several consistent awkward points: the greeting, the check, and the good bye (and sometimes many other parts depending on your dating companion). Without hesitation, she replied with the title of this entry.
I think she’s completely right. Dating is not the most natural of situations and can sometimes feel like a job interview over a dimly lit dinner table. I suppose it’s a necessary evil as a means to an ‘end’, and more so, certainly good blogging fodder.
