Boy meets girl. He thinks she's swell and she finds him not objectionable (insert laugh). They date. He discovers she loves sports, Americana music and can quote Top Gun verbatim. They discover dating each other is quite enjoyable and good things ensue such as road trips to concerts and plane rides to far away places, restaurant hopping and cooking at home, hunkering down by the fireplace during snowstorms and amassing their own book of inside jokes. Hopefully, if they're super lucky, they decide they are right for each other and want to share these adventures for the long haul.
That's the goal, right? Sounds so simple. And it probably should be if it's right. But, before all of that, comes an introduction. Hello, nice to meet you.
