The world of dating can be a risky one to navigate. It's not like going to Titan to take on Thanos himself or anything, but it can still be a harrowing journey with all manner of villains to overcome. Getting ghosted, dealing with rude people, pushy dates, cheap dates, or something as simple as bad breath means you always need to be on your toes. Sometimes you pick a winner, and your date goes off without a hitch. Sometimes it's grimmer than one of Batman's worst movies. You take the good with the bad, you learn and adapt and, if you're just lucky and skilled enough, you develop your very own set of helpful dating superpowers that will guide you through the daunting and treacherous dating atmosphere with at least a little more ease.
Now, something like X-ray vision or mind reading would probably be a super helpful superpower to have when you're out in the dating world, but odds are those are not real or practical options for you. So what is an option? What superpower do you bring to the table? Come with us to our Fortress of Dating Solitude, and we'll find out what your dating superpower truly is.
