4. First conversations aren’t for life stories
So the guy has come to you. Mazel tov, but it’s not over. Keeping him interested and willing to trade the math with you involves keeping up with (admittedly banal) small talk with that smile on your face. Act interested when we talk about our successes in the gym. Laugh at our lame-A$$ jokes. All the while, inject interesting things about yourself into the conversation that will intrigue us to revisit them on a first date. DON’T go into detail about how lame your dating life has been or admit in detail how your alopecia has been acting up with the change in seasons. Mystery is good sometimes.
