Points To Follow To The Second Date

Jul 18, 2008
Looking back on the first date, let's backstep and see if chances are good that there will be a second date with this woman you've just been out with. All things considered, it seemed to go pretty well, although it was difficult to read her emotions. A first date is when we make our first impressions, presenting ourself to the other party for assessment, deciphering their interest in us, and determining if a second date is feasible. Since I conducted myself well, maybe the possibility of having a second date with her is more realistic than I had thought.

It's a good practice to take the time to review the first date, with pen poised and paper on hand. What did you do together? What did you like about the different things you did together? It helps to understand where you are coming from, and data honed from this exercise will provide a bit of helpful information for preparing to call that lady again. Though subtle in manner perhaps, recalling particular things about the first date in later conversation is a very good way of showing you are interested in this woman.

Confidence is mandatory when preparing to make the follow-up call to the first date. Whether by reciting affirmations, exercising to build up adreneline, talking with a good friend who supports you, there are any number of ways leading up to feeling good about yourself. It takes courage sometimes to make that call, and so, without being cocky, this is a very good action to undertake before placing that call. Just make sure the confidence doesn't cross over into egotism or grandiosity.

Dial that number! when she answers, make sure you clearly state who are to avoid any embarrassing and confidence deflating moments. Make sure you talk for a couple minutes about her. How she's doing, what she did today, are vital questions to ask. She'll know you're a good listner, and women like that! Ask one follow-up question to her answers. Any more and she may think you're bugging her, but asking an extra question might just give you points in her book.

Once the conversation has warmed up and become more at ease, inquire as to her plans for later in the week. This will give you better chances of there being availability in her schedule should she care to see you again. If nothing is planned, then it would be a good time to ask her if she'd like to go out again. Be casual yet interested. Maybe say \"get together\" instead of \"second date\", which may be too stressful of a term for her. If she does have plans, don't fret, simply tell her why you called; that you had a great time last time you were together, and are interested in doing so again soon. Just remember to keep it easy and light.

If she said \"yes\", that fantastic! However, she may not have given the answer you were hoping for. In that case, decide if you really want to go out with this particular person again, and if you do, tell her you'd like to see her again when she has some free time. Give her your number and tell her if she'd like to do that, to give you a call when she's available. Chances are, she may wait until she feels in charge of the situation to go out with you again. Or, maybe there won't be a call at anytime. Whatever happens, go on with your life! Do not sat waiting by the phone for a call that may never come, or stop living your life.

The great thing is that if that second date doesn't happen, you can always try again with another woman. If you did everything as it should have been done on the first date, like being polite and a gentleman, listening when she talked, and things like that and she still doesn't call, then maybe she just isn't the one for you. At least you've only invested in one date at this point, and you can use the experience to better prepare for your next date with someone new.

Most importantly, always be who you are. Never try to be what you might think someone else would like you to be. Not starting out on an honest note, the likelihood of you and anyone making it to the second date are slim. Always be a good, kind, and polite person. Stay involved in the date. Try something new! Following this suggestions, I'm sure that the second date will be easy to rope in.
