Forget that stuff about playing hard to get, expecting the man to pay, and never having sex on a first date. “I cook a mean paella and I’ll always try to make you laugh” is good, but “I have a fantastic job and no-one can understand why I’m single” is not.It’s very unusual for someone to find a good match in their first few attempts.See it all as experience, not as proof that you’re a loser (or that everyone else is a loser).If it’s just their dazzling smile or their sparkly blue eyes, that’s fine!If their profile made you laugh out loud in the middle of Tesco, say it.
