I recently went on a first date with a man who asked me, "What is your favorite thing to do in the world?" I squinted my eyes a bit, and thought. "To think," I replied, without second-guessing myself. Next to me, my Parisian best friend rolled her eyes and scoffed. Later, she would tell me, “That’s not what you say on a first date, Emmy.” And maybe she’s right, but I’m dead set on being myself
, otherwise, how am I going to attract the right person?
