“As people stay in the dating pool longer than ever before, women are continuously inundated with advice on whether or not to sleep with someone on the first date. For most guys, if you’re interested in a woman enough to pursue her, ask her out, and take her on a date, then you’re probably interested enough to want to take things in a physical direction, too. As long as it’s safe and equally consensual, you do what’s best for you.”
Nobody likes first dates.
