5 ways to secure that hot second date
5 things i learned about securing a second date
Picture it. You’re on a first date and you really like them. You really want to see them again but you’re not sure where their head is at or what they’re thinking. Here are some things I learned that can help you up your chances of pinning down that all important second date.
1. Make sure you’re firing on all cylinders and feeling fantastic
Make sure you’re coming across as happy, light-hearted and confident. Fake it if you’re not feeling it. Leave your work problems, health issues and family nightmares behind you for one night and act like you haven’t got a care in the world other than having fun on your date.
2. Be curious
People love talking about themselves, don’t they? Ask your date lots of questions and they’ll be happy enough chatting away about themselves and you’ll be able to start sussing them out.
3. Flirt like crazy
You’re on a date, you like them. I don’t need to tell you it’s time to get your flirt on. Regular eye contact, mirroring body language and lots of smiling and laughter will get you a long way.
4. Listen and connect
This is the most important thing you can do. Really listen to them and try and find connections in the things they are saying. It helps to build an emotional connection between you. You want them to feel like there’s a bond growing.
5. Leave them wanting more
Don’t overshare. As I mentioned in an earlier post, don’t spend more than an hour or two on you first date, this way if you don’t like them you have a built in escape route and if you do like them and they like you, you will leave them wanting oh so much more.
There you go, my 5 ways to secure that hot second date. I hope you found this useful and good luck with date number three.
