“Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?”

When you’re looking in the full length mirror I bought freshman year of college at one of those big box stores then you will ALWAYS be the fairest because every single person looks great when they look in this mirror. It’s like a funhouse mirror — everyone looks tall and narrow. And it’s why 15 years later I still own that mirror even though the cheap plastic frame has broken and the cardboard backing flops around. It’s the perfect mirror for selfies and for increasing your confidence before stepping out for a date.

Except then you see your reflection in a storefront window once you’re out on the date and realize that your proportions are all off and you’re not as tall and narrow and fabulous looking as you thought. Or are you?

If looking at some warped mirror or in your bathroom mirror which has perfect lighting or asking a friend who will always tell you that you look awesome is what you need to see or hear to make you feel ultra-confident before a date, then do so. Why spend time on a date worrying about some cowlick in the back of your head that you can’t see or if your black top and black pants are “matching” blacks or any other small imperfection. If you’re on an awesome date then neither of you will notice anything else.
