In the meantime, you can continue to get Joe to let his guard down a little bit. Do not, under any circumstance, let him pick you up from your house if you hardly know him. I have seen more damage done to women because of what they allowed themselves to dream and fantasize about over any guy leading them on. Don’t let them muse about your future nuptials either.
At least, I didn’t realize it until two friends pointed it out to me.
If I hear about one more girl letting a guy she met via social media or any other way besides a trusted friend introducing the two of you, pick her up, I’m going to lose my mind. If you have been crushing on this guy for a while, it’s hard not to imagine your future together. If you don’t, you are majorly putting yourself at risk for sabotaging the relationship and/or breaking your own heart. Look, I’m not going to pressure you into giving every guy out there more than one date.
Sometimes you just know it’s not going to work due to major personality, faith or moral based issues.
It’s not wrong to want to have fun on a first date, obviously you need to enjoy spending time with that person, but the way I rated dates was very much based on my entertainment, instead of looking for qualities and attributes with the long game in mind (the long game being: 50 years of marriage, kids, grandkids, hardships, moves, job changes, family deaths, all of it).
If you are just dating to have a good time and that’s your end goal, fine.
