Join the Globe’s love advice columnist as she shops for a cozy at-home movie night for two

In this four-part series, Meredith Goldstein shops at Primark, the one-stop fashion and lifestyle destination in Downtown Crossing, for four very different dates. Follow along every week, as things go from date one to date 22.

It’s date number 22, and you are officially, undeniably comfortable with each other.

So comfortable, in fact, that the pressure to go all out and get dolled up—or even go out at all—has lifted. Now, all that talking about favorite movies is coming in handy as you plan a relaxing night in, just the two of you.

You’ve got Netflix at the ready and your favorite take-out spot on speed-dial. What else could you need? We have a few ideas…

At Primark, you can find all the things that spell c-o-z-y and take comfort to the next level, in just one trip. Whether it’s for your first date, your third, your 12th, or 22nd, for every occasion, it’s all there.

After almost a dozen dates, you’ve learned a lot about one another.

You know each other’s favorite movies, embarrassing high school moments, career goals, and big dreams for the future. But one thing you haven’t gotten to know yet? Your significant other’s family.

Meeting the family is a major step, cementing your relationship (and existence) to those closest to the one you’re getting close to. Nervous, anyone? What if mom doesn’t like you? What if you’re not so fond of her, or dad, or big sister, or the twins? Fast friendships are no guarantee. But one thing you can make sure of is that you look great for the occasion. And you make the best impression.

A sure-fire way to do that? Dress up, and don’t show up empty-handed. A sincere, thoughtful gift tells the family that you’re invested in your relationship and you care about building one with them. Remember, a little gift can go a long way.

At Primark, you can find everything you need—from a new outfit to that perfect gift—in just one trip, whether it’s for your first date, your third, your 12th, or 22nd. For every impression, it’s all there.

Three dates in and things are starting to heat up.

After sharing a dinner or two, basking in the glow of the same B-movie, or swapping stories on a stroll through a moonlit park, you’ve gotten pretty comfortable with each other. The conversation has found its rhythm. The flirting has reached a crescendo—and it seems like the right time to hit those high notes.

There’s no pressure, obviously, but there is a certain pull. The attraction is undeniable, and you want to look better than ever to help seal the deal and give you that extra dose of confidence. The right outfit can do all the talking, while the right lingerie can remove talking from the equation entirely.

Dating is complicated.

It can be nerve-wracking, what with first impressions, second-guessing, and third glasses of wine threatening to spoil the fun. It can also be rewarding—and it’s that hope that keeps us showing up.

But we can’t show up in just anything. The right match requires the right look. And might require multiple shopping lists—from flats to hats, from bags to blush, from pinstripes to pajamas—and an extra toothbrush tucked away … just in case.

For a first date, the right impression is everything—and all in your control. You want to show up, show off, and leave them wanting more. Feeling your best is key, and the right outfit can turn the chemistry from palpable to undeniable.
