Don’t treat it like it’s a fucking business meeting or something that just happened by chance.
You don’t have to hand wash your car or put a playlist together.
And we both know, without trust, you are building on sand. Don’t act surprised or like the other person is crazy if they want to know where this may be going or what you want, unless you both agree that the sex was just sex.
But don’t act like your time was wasted or that you were ripped off. Your parents had to kiss a lot of frogs before they met so why shouldn’t you? And if you think it should, you’re entitled and don’t have the tools to build a relationship so stop dating until you grow the fuck up. Know that you got to hear a new story, as did they, and that’s a privilege. If things did work out, then make it clear that you like then. There is already something false about this and he or she will smell it and lose trust. You’re not being mysterious in a good way by keeping someone in the dark. If you guys have sex, don’t pretend like you didn’t.
Because they are too and it’s your job to set the tone.
