As adults we are rarely given the occasion to make new friends.Each failed date was actually an opportunity to make a new friend or at least a new contact.
The problem though is that nobody knows the rules, the positions are ever changing and the maneuvers that are learnt in training normally don’t work on the field. I followed all the rules and believed that with practice would come perfection but I never seemed to score a goal. There was the guy who spoke only about his ex-boyfriend for the duration of dinner, the personal trainer who refused to eat anything that wasn’t green and the gorgeous Italian boy whose English skills were much better online. Instead of seeing a date as an interview, where probing questions are exchanged and potential candidates cross-examined, dates should be seen as exciting opportunities to meet new people.
Now, there are always exceptions and last minute fun events or basketball tickets that come up, but we are focusing here on the beginning stages of dating, so humor me.

Instead of interviewing for a position in the team of two, we should relax, let down our guard and be ourselves.
