Have you been
in a situation when you had a great time on your
second dates and were already planning in your head
relationship would look like, but then never heard
back? You keep wondering if you should call? What went
wrong? It’s Just Lunch, a
dating service, offers the
following second date tips so that you can make sure that
things end on a positive note:
a place you feel comfortable and one that suits both your
tastes. For instance, if the man is a baseball fanatic but
the woman has none to little interest, a game is not the
best idea, even if she politely agrees to it.
listen carefully – 38% of singles say one of the most
important things they notice on a first date is whether
their date asked questions about themselves.
the real you, now is the time to drop the façade and
share your opinions and interests – 46% of single say
that not having
common interests is a deal breaker
(despite all the talk of "opposites
attract"), it’s better to know sooner than later if
you have anything in common.
yourself, express opinions, desires and goals – 49% of
singles say that having
common values and
goals is the top
reason a relationship works in the long term.
the end of the date, don’t make false promises
about what comes next if
are not interested in taking the relationship
further – 40% of singles have told their date they
would call them to go out again but never did.
Be honest, there’s no reason to be rude to
someone you barely know. (Related:

going on at least three dates before making
your mind up about not seeing someone again.

chemistry kicks in. In the end, trust your
instincts and have fun!
