HBO Girls Gif Guide to Dating in Your 20s

Being in your 20s isn’t easy. Infinite parties and late nights are accompanied by endless insecurities, self-doubt and bad decisions you can only hope to look back on fondly when you hit the big 3-0. What to wear, what to eat, omg, WTF is wrong with my hair? Checking to be able to plan an evening in Manhattan. Do you stay in Greenpoint for coffee or venture to the Grown-up Neighborhood of Cobble Hill? Then there is the constant struggle of keeping all of your friends as allies. Then, the linchpin that seemingly keeps all the planets aligned is how well you manage your romantic relationship(s). Here’s the HBO GIRLS (gif) guide to dating in your 20s.

1. Make sure you scope out a potential date location beforehand. You don’t want the place lit like a Nordstrom Rack dressing room.

2. Don’t wear something you bought off etsy on a first date, in fact, avoid wearing all etsy purchases until you know the level of kitsch and craft he’s willing to tolerate.

9. Again, don’t be afraid of the crazy ones. Just mildly apprehensive and always know where all the emergency exits are located.
