Dating and Your Home

Dating and Your Home

A friend of ours is newly single and ready to mingle. After being in a five year relationship and also having lived with the ex for many of those years, she is getting ready to start dating again and she also is getting her home ready again. One of her concerns is actually not going on a first or second date but

how she should present her home to her new dates. Getting to know a new date and having him or her come over to hang out in the first few times can be a bit overwhelming. You want your place to look comfy, cool, collected but you also want to show who you really are so you are comfortable in the future. For example, if you are a complete neat freak or a total slob, what are the best ways to show your home? We wanted to ask you, Apartment Therapy, what are some good tips for getting a home ready for dating? (And let's keep this G-rated, people!)
