First of all, yeah, I’m an accountant for heaven’s sake! I’m not really a fireworks on the first date type of gal. (There are rare exceptions.)
Also: I like how you turned MY question into your own! That’s a great take-away from my story!
I do believe distilling the post-first date analysis into something simple makes the decision making easier and more clear cut. Again, as time goes on and more information becomes available, that decision making will be impacted. But stepping back and asking myself this one question has removed my self-doubt.
Thanks as always for reading and responding, Vanessa Torre!
