My friend actually went on a date with a girl who truly believed she was a druid and tried to convince him so.

The first phase is hope.

You will swipe happily. You will show your friends your matches. You spend a lot of time getting ready for dates. You feel like a teenager again and it’s god damn wonderful.

The last phase is joy.
