A few months ago I was flipping out to one of my guy friends about my love life, as I often do. (Sorry, guys.) I had gone on a second date to eat a home-cooked meal at a gentleman’s apartment and ended up spending the night. We didn’t have sex, but we did in lots of other activities that aren’t your typical second date material. Of course, come Monday morning, I started freaking out that this gentleman caller would lose interest in me because we’d done too much too soon. So I instant messaged my friend D., who is also single, and asked what he thought.
“What time did all this happen?” He IMed back.
“I don’t know,” I wrote. “I came over for dinner at eight, we ate dinner and dessert, then we talked on the couch for a long time and he gave me a footrub. After midnight?”

Meet a guy at a party? Browsing through online dating profiles? You might not actually have to waste time going on a date with him to discover the sad fact that he’s self-absorbed. According to a new study, if his face is ridiculously symmetrical (i.e. he’s super hot and everything lines up perfectly) he is significantly more selfish than the average bear. Due to his biological blessings, he is less likely to cooperate with others, more likely to have his own interests at heart. Why? Because his beauty makes him too self-sufficient for the likes of you, peon. The same goes for symmetrically-faced ladies. Got it! Beautiful people are not really fun to date, unless you are also beautiful. Us plebeians should go “uglier” when given the option. But what if that “uglier” guy is also a selfish a**hole because he mistakenly thinks he’s hot? How do we spot him just by looking? He’s much more dangerous. Help us, science!

Your friends think it’s cute that you’re in such a panic, but you can’t see any humor in the situation.

It’s one of the quintessential (and sometimes dreaded) first date questions: What kind of music are you into?
