Stage One: The confirmation text that you are indeed meeting up.
Stage Two: Hours in front of the mirror making sure everything. Is. PERFECT.
Stage Three: Anxiously waiting for the other person to show up while questioning their arrival.
Stage Four: Finally meeting and feeling complete relief that they look like their picture online.
Stage Five: Nerves so high that they can only be cured by one thing.
Stage Six: Discovering what their true personality is IRL.
Sometimes the personality you get online is NOT what you get in real life. You've been warned.
Stage Seven: Getting comfortable enough with the date that you begin to reveal your hidden "quirks."
Stage Eight: Noticing things about them that no webcam can bring to life.
Stage Nine: Hearing about their current dating habits (whether you want to or not).
If you're honest about it: no problem.
If they find out your secrets via interview you never thought they would ever see: yeah...
