Speaking on the other side of this, I remember the feeling of being put on a pedestal by men back in my dating days. It was a lot of pressure. They had already created a false narrative of who they thought I was before we would even go on our first date. Needless to say, both parties would inevitably end up disappointed.
I think it's so important to always remain realistic and not get trapped behind the rose-coloured glasses.
Thank you for another great piece Vishnu!
