If the sparks aren’t there, it’s a built-in excuse to end the evening early. There are a million ways things can go wrong—unexpected traffic, the boss asks you to stay later than you planned, mistiming on how long it takes to get ready — and all of a sudden you’ve kept your date waiting. If you sound stressed about being late, they’ll be stressed while they’re waiting.
