You must have forgotten your manners because most people wouldn’t barge into a perfect stranger’s home with out being asked in, just like you wouldn’t start sifting through a homeless person’s grocery cart. Think of yourself as a vampire. If you waltz into her home without an invitation you are violating her personal space and in true first date fashion, you don’t know each other at all. You have not earned the right so don’t act like you own the place. Always pretend her father is on the other side of the door with a loaded shotgun. That way you’ll never forget your manners again.
