My name is Nathan, and I'm bad at love.

So I'm turning to the 11th season of The Bachelorette for help. In part two of the season premiere last night, Kaitlyn Bristowe was named as the Bachelorette. By the end of the night, five more men were eliminated, and I was able to take away some additional advice to get through my own first week of dating:


1. Don't wait more than two minutes to kiss her.

Chris proved to be the smoothest dentist the world has ever seen during his first ever conversation with Kaitlyn. He starts by telling her he is excited that she is there, that he is grateful to be there, and then mentions he is not concerned about putting her in an awkward position before…going in for a kiss! What a Romeo! How did Kaitlyn react to the kiss? It blew her mind. I have always waited to get to know the person a little before making a move, but I realize now how wrong I was. I will be going with the Chris “kiss in two minutes or less" strategy this week.

2. Do tell her she wasn't your first choice to fall in love with.
