The best way to determine if you’re a good fit for “Casie, 25” (and the best way to lay the groundwork for a lasting relationship) is to put a solid effort into planning the first few dates.
Instead of being charming and original when asking someone out, we opt for a quick text asking someone if they want to hang out.
