Everyone knows how important first dates are—oh, and you know they are crucial if you want to find love. You’re trying to make a good impression, and they want to make a good impression on you. But second dates are very important too, maybe even a little more than firsts. After all, you can’t move on to a relationship unless you have a successful second date.
The first time you go out with a guy you definitely want to enjoy his company and live in the moment. But you can’t help but to think whether this guy could be the one. That is the whole point in this evening after all. Whether you’re going out for a traditional dinner or grabbing coffee at the local coffee shop, things are going to get awkward at least once, but you can usually tell pretty quickly if you want to see him again or if you’ll be telling your friends about this disastrous date.
But if you’re still unsure, let our expert matchmakers here at New Jersey Singles help you out. Read on as New Jersey Singles reviews the top five signs you want a second date.
1. You laughed the entire date.
Laughter is one the most telltale signs you had a great time. If you had a great time with him, then you definitely want to see him again. Think of laughter as proof of your interest. If you’re laughing and having a good time, then you’re definitely into him. If you’re looking around, staring at the table next to you, the ceiling, and the cars going by and you never laughed the entire time, then you’re not into him.
It’s pretty awesome when you meet a guy who can make you laugh the entire date. And if you found a guy who can, you definitely need to go on a second date and see where things go. If the date felt like a comedy show, then say yes to a second date.
2. You never checked your phone.
If you don’t like the guy across from you, you’re going to be buried in your phone the entire date. Although you don’t have to laugh the entire date, if he was interesting and kept you intrigued, then you definitely want to see him again. If you like him and everything about him, you probably never checked your phone once. Also, time flies by when you’re having a good time. If you couldn’t believe how fast time flew by on your first date, then you definitely want to see him again. Congratulations, you had an awesome first date and a second is just around the corner.
3. He checks every box.
Okay, so there is no way of knowing he’s going to be the one, but regardless, you still feel something good about him. If he seems to check off every box, behaved like a gentleman, and showed interest in you, then you definitely want to see him again.
4. You feel like you can be yourself with him.
How many times have you broken up with a guy because you couldn’t be yourself in front of him? You thought things were going wonderfully but you could never be yourself. If you’re on a first date and realize you can be your true self in front of him, quirks and all, then you found a great guy. A second date is definitely on the horizons.
5. You went to two locations.
Sure, a great first date can certainly happen in just one location, but an even better date will carry on to two. If your date suggested you check out the dessert bar around the corner or wanted to take you to a great coffee shop and you agreed, you were into him. After all, why would you want to prolong the evening if you didn’t enjoy the time you were having together?
So how do you feel about him? Do you think you’ll go on a second date, or didn’t he make the cut?
