On this episode of DETANGLED
When I was going strong in my dating game, there were some dates that I thought were promising, while others were a complete disaster. My friends used to say that a bad experience will only make another one better, and I think they were right. After a couple of weird experiences, I somehow met my husband, and everything made sense. From all the dating tips I know to the signs that the person you like will ask you out again, this article is for you!
When was the last time you went on a date?
I remember that on our first date, we went to the movies, and we saw something terrible that neither of us liked. Then we went out and drank a glass of wine. I kept thinking about how cute he was and how much I would like to see him again—that was something special to me because I used to be the type of woman who went on dates a lot but didn’t end up with any of the guys she was seeing.
And then it was time to say goodbye, and I was nervous that the night was going to end and I didn’t know if I was going to see him ever again. But then, as I was looking for the keys in my purse, he put his hand on my shoulder, looked me in the eyes, and said, “I know you’re tired and you go to work tomorrow morning, but can you stay for a little longer? Let’s take a stroll,” she said. And that, my friends, was the moment I knew I was going on a second date with him.
You’re probably in the same position I was in a couple of years ago when my now-husband and I went on our first date. You’ve probably gone out with someone, and you liked them so much that you’re now curious if you’re going to see them again.
I know that waiting for a call or text is so annoying, especially when you start having butterflies in your stomach. But that’s why I’m here for you: to share with you all the signs that they’re going to ask you out again. So if you want to know whether you’ll be going on a second date with someone special or not, read along with me until the end of this article to discover everything:
1. They didn’t look at their phones
The first sign that they liked you a lot is that they didn’t even pick up their phones. You’ve probably been on dates when the person you were out with kept looking at their phone or texting with someone, paying more attention to their device than talking to you.
But if your date didn’t even touch the phone for more than a few seconds, that’s your clue that they want to see you again. Will you go out with them again if they ask you?
2. You make them laugh
You sure know that when someone makes you laugh, you’re more likely to consider that person attractive. That’s because when someone puts you in a good mood, you want more of it, and you might perceive them as happy, confident, and willing to make you smile all the time.
So if you made your date laugh, you can be sure that they’ll call you soon! Time flies by when you’re having fun, so it’s understandable that you want to see that person again pretty soon.
If someone likes you from the first date, they’ll probably find different ways to tell you that. For instance, if you’re talking about a food you like, let’s say pasta, they might say that they know a great place where pasta is delicious, so you should go there next time.
See? This is a combination of saying that they like you and that they want to see you again. If they do this, you can start picking out your outfit, because the second date is just around the corner.
4. They’ll reach out pretty soon
There’s a weird dating “rule” that says that after the first day, men should typically wait around 3 days to reach out, but that doesn’t mean it’s true. However, if the person you were out with reaches out pretty soon, that’s definitely a good sign that you’ll go out again.
If they text or call you soon after your first date, it means that they liked you a lot and that they want to get to know you better, so good luck on the next date!
5. They didn’t bring up intimacy-related subjects
We’re all grown-ups here, which means that talking about intimacy is not a taboo subject. However, as normal as it is to talk about bedroom time, bringing it up during the first date is definitely not the best idea.
It gives off the impression that there’s nothing meaningful about your connection and that the only thing that matters is getting to the bedroom. No, no, no! If the person you’re dating begins talking about steamy times while you’re seeing each other for the first time, you’d better believe that this is what they want from you.
On the other hand, if your date didn’t say anything about intimacy, that’s your clue that things are serious and that they want to see more of you because they do indeed like you, not the idea of you know what. I’m not a goody-goody myself, but I think it’s a form of respect to not bring up intimate subjects the first time you meet someone, am I right?
6. They make eye contact
I don’t know about you, but I feel that when someone looks me in the eyes when I talk, it means that they’re really engaged in the conversation and they really pay attention to what I’m saying.
If your date is looking at you while you’re talking to them, it’s a clear sign that they’re interested in the things you’re saying and that they want to know you better one date at a time. As you already know, the eyes are the window to the soul, so it has to have a meaning, right?
7. They want to know your background
This is one of the cutest and most sincere signs ever, so pay attention to it. When someone is interested in you and wants to get to know you better, which means asking you for a second date, they don’t want to waste any precious time, so they ask you as many questions as possible.
This means that they’re curious to know where you grew up, what your family is like, if you have any children or grandchildren, where you went to school, and so many other things. If they ask you questions that are similar to these ones, get ready for another date, because it is closer than you think. At the end of the day, nobody wants to discover the past of someone they don’t care about seeing again, right?
8. They share personal details
If you like someone, you probably want them to learn a little bit about you while you have the chance to be together, right? Well, if your date starts sharing all sorts of details about their personal life, they surely want to see more of you in the future.
The stories they tell you are for you to understand who they really are and what they expect from a potential romantic relationship. So if you like them too, then you can ask for further details about the things they share with you, and maybe you’ll see some fireworks pretty soon.
9. He walks you to your door
This reminds me of the popular 2000s show “S*x and the City,” because all of the men Carry Bradshaw has ever dated walked her to her door after the date was over.
So if your date does the same thing, it might be because they want to spend a few extra minutes with you. Why would they do that if they didn’t like you? You might say that this is only a sign of courtesy, but some people aren’t that nice to want to hang out for a little longer with someone they don’t have any plans to meet up with any time soon.
So how you end your night and how things develop between you two is entirely up to you. Who knows? Maybe they’re the ones. But trust me, if your date made every minute fly by and walks you to your door just to hang out a few more minutes with you, they’ll call you soon.
