Welcome to "Avoiding the Pitfalls of High School Dating," a seminar for high school students who have trouble going on dates.Your hosts for the evening are Lucky Daye and Starry Knight, two people who have invested their entire life savings into creating this simple system of five "never-fail" rules for dating success.
