When I took her out on our first date, I made sure I had showered, triple-applied deodorant, and borrowed my roommates shirt (which is something guys never do.) I was terrified of acting like an idiot whenever I was around her, but as our relationship grew, my life changed. I began to try to find as much time for her as I could.
