Dating advice after second date
By giving a guy the green light to call you, he may do just that, or he may really take your go-ahead a step further and set up date No. Some of the best dates I have ever been on were when the girl straight-up told me why she was having such a good time.
I was so excited that on one of those dates I couldn't wait any longer and asked her on second date halfway through dinner (risky move, but we both were enjoying ourselves and it made the rest of the first date that much more enjoyable).
Be proactive about letting him know you are not interested in a follow-up date.
We typically struggle to pick up on non-verbal cues that would normally communicate interest or lack thereof (eye contact, body language, etc.) I am not saying you have to know if you would date the guy long-term after one dinner, but don’t be afraid to be more direct and put your level of interest into words.If you're feeling good about things, instead of saving your "I had a great time" for the end of the evening, choose a spontaneous moment during the date to say (if you mean it), "I just want to thank you for asking me out tonight because I am having a great time!" Do this, and I promise the remaining portion of the date, while it might have been good before, will be great now.We think about whether or not the two of us are compatible, if we share interests, could we work well together if this turned into a longer relationship?
This all comes back around to compatibility, and compatibility takes time.Either way, when you give your date the go-ahead, you're taking a lot of the pressure off and he'll be grateful.
