Warning Signs

First dates are great! But how do you know if you should go on a second? One of the most difficult things is recognizing those things which are warning signs of future problems and this post is an attempt to list just a few.
You might reconsider a second date if:

Warning signs on a date
  • More time is spent texting others rather than engaging in conversation.
  • They answer a call during your date and it's not an emergency.
  • One of you is doing all of the talking.
  • If you're a women and your date didn't open the door for you.
  • If you're a man and your date quickly made a get away after you dropped her off (no good night hug or lingering conversation).
  • They told you all about themselves but didn't ask anything about you.
  • You don't feel excited about seeing them again.
  • Your date wasn't appreciative of your company and time.
  • The person was critical of you and made you feel silly or stupid.

In all cases you should go with your gut feeling. Just because a first date didn't go perfectly it doesn't mean a second date isn't warranted. Sometimes the first date jitters get the best of all of us. HOWEVER, you should never go on a second date to just "be nice" if you know there is no way it would ever work out, don't lead your guy or girl along.
