I think the dating world is kind of backwards. I would prefer the first date to be a night in watching netflix getting each other's vibe, then we roam the town when we're comfortable with each other. However, I understand why women don't want to be alone with a stranger, so universally awkward first date dinner/drinks it is.
I am on a crusade against assumptions. For example, your car getting broken into is always a bad thing. I don't lock my car, it's insured and there's nothing in there more valuable than the window they would have to break to get in. I've had about 8 break ins with 6 being uneventful and 2 have given me amusing stories. Overall, I am quite pleased with my car getting broken into experience.
Sometimes I like to listen to conservative talk radio and watch Fox News. They are brilliant pieces of fiction set in a parallel universe where science is just a conspiracy made by godless liberals because they hate freedom and corporations are primarily motivated to make the world a more prosperous place for everyone.
