Later on, once you’re in and they trust you won’t ruin their reputation, run away with their money (chiefly in the form of wasted presents), or go batsh*t crazy, they’re hooked. So just keep your inner-psycho on a leash for a couple months, kay?
By now, she knows what she is looking for and who she is likely to be compatible with. It's not that she'll never get upset about anything, but she's not going to text you 20 times in a row or show up at your door with mascara streaming down her face.

She's learned not to take herself too seriously and knows that it's important to enjoy yourself. She knows she's at her best when she's eating and sleeping well and getting some exercise.20. She knows that people rarely change and isn't going to wait around or nag you, hoping you'll turn into someone else.
She is put together and can handle social situations with ease. She won't ruin dinner by talking nonstop about an annoying coworker. She doesn't live on ramen and coffee anymore either.
