Frog Hunting: Sexy, But Not Too Sexy

I was running out the door to go to a movie before meeting another guy for drinks. I realized the tank I was wearing had an open back and figured this wasn’t the right message to send on a first date. I ran back inside to grab a change of clothes for after the movie. 

 My roommate astutely noticed when I arrived home later. She remarked, “Weren’t you wearing something else when you left this afternoon?” 

 “Yeah, yeah. I had a date and figured I shouldn’t wear my sexy shirt to the first date.” 

Then it dawned on me: I was willing to wear my sexy shirt to the movies—by myself. But on date? I’m clearly new at this.

 Casanova would never have made such a mistake. 

Yes, I understand that I just compared my 33-years-and-never-been-kissed to Casanova, but I’m feeling super empowered and feminine right now. 

 Six dates in one week will do that to a woman. 

 At this point I realized I needed to up my date preparation game and added a regular change of clothes, deodorant, and makeup to my work bag—just in case.
