Wouldn’t it be nice if you could predict whether a first date will lead to a second? While the 10 tips below aren’t guaranteed, they are pretty solid indicators that another get together is (or isn’t) in the cards!
1 / 10
Yes: The conversation flows
The best dates are the ones that feel natural and where conversation flows. If this is happening on your first meet-up with someone, chances are a second date is in your future.
2 / 10
No: There is awkward silence
This is the exact opposite of having a great conversation. If the silent pauses between your first-date Q&A feel stunted or awkward, there may not be a second date in your cards.
3 / 10
Yes: You can’t stop smiling at each other
This is a good sign that the endorphins are flowing through both of your bodies and that there’s some chemistry you may want to explore further.
4 / 10
No: He never asks you about you
Every potential partner should spend some time getting to know you and what makes you tick. If that’s an issue and you feel like you’re doing most of the questioning, you may want to ask yourself whether a second date is worth it.
5 / 10
Yes: You never check your phone unless you’re Googling something
When both of you seem to forget about your phones and the steady stream of notifications that are going off, it’s a good sign that you’re incredibly interested in one another.
6 / 10
No: He’s looking at his phone more than at you
If your date seems more obsessed with their technological gadgets than you, it’s probably not a good sign. It gives the impression that they’re looking for a way to end the date or that they’re bored.
7 / 10
Yes: You have a lot in common
Every successful couple will have at least one or two things in common. To determine whether you should take on a second date, suss out shared interests over coffee.
8 / 10
No: You can’t seem to connect
No one wants to go on a second date with someone who doesn’t open up or share stories about their life. Connection is key.
9 / 10
Yes: You’re flirting
If both of you are flirting and the date feels slightly playful, this is a good sign that a second date is possible. Having a good time can’t really be faked.
10 / 10
No: He doesn’t seem to be having fun
If your date seems like a Debby downer instead of someone who is having fun, chances are he’d rather be doing something else than hanging out with you.
