I can con­firm that the first­date fear fac­tor is real. It freaked me out when a girl told me about her dream wed­ding be­fore our food ar­rived! So ease into it. De­cide if you even like the guy (which may take a few dates). Then sug­gest what you’re look­ing for, but don’t give a State of the Date ad­dress. Ca­su­ally men­tion that you’re not into ca­sual dat­ing. You don’t have to make the first date se­ri­ous just be­cause you want a se­ri­ous re­la­tion­ship, but you can lay the foun­da­tion.

Shack up or

pack up?
