Question 1 on Episode 1 of Anarcho Agony Aunts (formerly known as #NHS4lefties)

''Cis het dude, I've struggled a bit with dating the last few years. At 23, I'm a late starter for various reasons (I'm a British Romani and only started dating non-travellers a few years ago but whatever) and a sufferer from GAD.
I've gotten great at first dates - learning to dress like a grown man helped - get plenty of second ones, but tend to get overexcited and overthink things when it comes to a second or potential third date and rather understandably this I think is putting women off. I start second-guessing how I should be progressing things, showing interest but not too much interest, texting between dates, etc...
I'm getting better at it everytime and know I'll get there eventually with experience, but any tips?''

Ready to stand corrected on account of the fact that I’m 53 years old and have been with my partner since I was 17, and so I’m clearly long past the dating game, in fact I was never really in it, but is this really serious advice? I’m pretty sure it’s for real, yet it seems impossible! I live in hope that this channel is just a big fat fucking troll. That said, I have a horrible suspicion that younger people won’t be in the least bit incredulous and that I’m publicly displaying what an outdated old fart I am.

I have no idea who this is supposed to help, apart from its producers. It doesn't seem to be anarchist, it doesn't seem to be anything really apart from very banal "believe in yourself" with occasional "don't be a dick" thrown in.
