I love a man with a great sense of humor and who is intelligent - a man who has a great smile. I like a man who is very ambitious and driven and who has a good heart and makes me feel safe.I don’t know where the idea come from that embracing how you felt was a bad thing. The advice to “fake it ‘til you make it” is a band-aid solution to a serious issue.Guys constantly apologize to girls for liking them or for even thinking of liking them.

When you sit down across from someone on a first date and things are going alright, you talk objectives.
