Things Women Do Before Dates Men Don’t Think About

For us women, first dates can be stressful – and not just because of some cliche about us trying to find what to wear or spending hours doing our makeup.

In a recent video from Youtube Unsolicited Project, “How Women Get Ready for First Dates” tells the story of the crucial differences between how women prep for date nights versus how men prep (or don’t prep). This video might surprise some guys or piss them off, depending on their mileage, but this isn’t a personal attack on men or fuel to the #NotAllMen joke. This is just a sad reality of the world we live in today.

In the video below, a woman is shown just after getting ready for her date and talking to her friend, before heading out to meet her Tinder date. Instead of asking for makeup tips and whether her outfit is awesome, the two women instead focus on her safety.

“Just remember exactly what I’m wearing right now just in case I go missing,” the woman says to her roommate. She also lists the essential items in her purse: Rape whistle, switch blade and, of course, pepper spray.
