Second Dates: How to Avoid the Romantic Version of the Sophomore Slump Romantic comedy films tend to depict the period between first date and marriage proposal as a montage of clichéd happy couple moments. This is the time where you and your potential sweetie discover if you connect beyond buzz of flirting and physical attraction.Sometimes people who experience a sparkling first date together feel disappointment the second time around.This is the perfect opportunity to move your dating away from the dinner table or bar and into a weekend day out. It is still too early to offer dinner at your own apartment or theirs but you need more time now to get to know each other and the phone won't assist you.You need human contact and interaction with your love-interest.
Between all the awkward pauses, you’re wondering what you saw in this guy.I asked thirty-three women ranging from twenty-two years of age to forty-two: “If you went on a date that was so-so, would you go on a second date?” Of those surveyed, 91% would indeed go on a second date.Book shops, browsing, a market, antique stalls, a sport, a club, a shopping trip. But as you both feel you need to seek out some further intimacy a lunchtime meeting can extend throughout the afternoon and into evening, depending on how you feel about one another. A weekend afternoon lends itself to ebbs and flows, you can talk openly at a cafe table and then walk and feel how it is to walk next to your date.There may be the opportunity to hold hands or create spontaneous entertainment or even a small first kiss. Allow things to flow but don't leave things so open ended that you appear hanging around as if you have nothing better to do. Once again, although your conversation on this second date will have more substance and credence to it, you should still shy away from discussing anything about ex relationships and sex.Once you have had a successful first date and have made contact again to establish a second meeting it is amazing how many people start questioning the situation and worrying unnecessarily.
