I don't understand the whole dating thing. I know right off the bat if I'm interested in someone, and I don't want them to waste their money on me and take me out to eat if I know I'm not interested in that person.
If you like to have fun and consider yourself to be spontaneous yet are also responsible and mature, things are off to a great start.
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
