Reports are showing that our homes are an extension of ourselves. Meaning if your home is a dump, you’re probably not that much cleaner inside.
Before The Date

After The Date

This is where a lot of us will part with a hug and a peck on the cheek instead of inviting their date in for “coffee”.

If the date is going really well, doing this might send your date into a mental spiral. Wondering why you didn’t want to invite them in for some intimacy.
In The Long Term
