“So sorry, I didn’t feel any chemistry”
How many of you have heard (or said) that in the online dating world?
Now – did you say, or even know about chemistry when you fell for your high school sweetheart or other organic relationships? I am going to assume no – you likely fell over a period of time and different emotions. This may have taken days, weeks or months – not a few notes passed across the classroom (texts) and one juice together (wine/beer) in the cafeteria (bar).
See where I am going with this?
I get it – and have lived it, first date fireworks are fucking awesome – but my organic relationships lasted longer than my online ones – where literal nukes went off on the first dates in the form of “chemistry”.
So that said, I just want to say, don’t have so many crazy expectations for a first date – what you really want is compatibility, likeability and attraction. If those things are met, yes, meet up again.
