So you've met "the one" and he/she's somehow different than the 20 other "the one's" before them, right? You tell yourself you've never ever felt this way before (yadda yadda) but let's get real; you're doing the same generic moves that you and every hopeless romantic before you has done.
You act like they're not a big deal
Your best friend see's you the day after your big date and asks how how it went. You reply with, "Oh, you mean the hang-out with whatshisface? It was pretty cool I guess".
You check your zodiac compatibility
Seriously, you can't mess with the universe. Nothing says, "delusional love-at-first-sight" like a good horoscope match.
Social network profile stalking
So you've already established that they're your soul mate, so now you just need a daily reminder that they're just so good looking.
You crawl in to a love-cocoon phase
Think I just made that up? I did, but it doesn't make it any less true. A love-cocoon is what you call the scenario where everyone you know is leaving you voice mails and texts and they finally find you rolled up with whatshisface (has it really been 13 hours?) just watching tv and eating pizza in bed. What's more important than that? Going to work?
Filling your journal with pages about them
Oh man, we just had the best date ever; I must write every detail down so that I don't forget! (as if that would ever happen).
Staying up all night
All of a sudden you're so pumped about being in love you can't get them out of your mind and every day you see them feels like Christmas and they're the gift you begged your parents for all year, then every time you close your eyes you hear Aerosmith singing "And I don't wanna miss a thingggg". Amirite?
