Once all the to-do’s on your list have been dealt with and checked off, remember: it doesn’t matter what you’re wearing or what you cook as long as you’re having fun.

Enjoy the company, and remind yourself that the reason your date’s come over isn’t for a free dinner, but to spend some time getting to better know someone new in their life.
