5 Ways To Score A Second Date
How does a woman decide if she wants a second date? By mercilessly analyzing your behavior on a first date. So we found out what it is they’re looking for.

2. BE NICE TO OTHER PEOPLE
We notice when you’re short with the waitress, or you only leave the bartender a measly $1 tip on a $25 bar tab … and then we assume you’re an undercover assh*le who’ll cheat on us with a stripper. Is that a little presumptuous? Yes. But this is how our minds work. Being needlessly rude to anyone on date No. 1 can easily sink your chances for date No. 2, so cover your bases and be nice and generous. (That’s good advice anytime, actually.)
3. PICK UP THE TAB
I know that going Dutch makes sense — the economy stinks, she has a job just like you, you may not even know each other all that well — but if you don’t at least make a sincere offer to pick up the tab, you very well may not get a second date. (Hey, we push 8 lb. mini humans out of our vaginas; the least you can do is pay for some chicken and a couple glasses of wine.) When the bill comes, reach for it immediately and slide it toward you. If she offers to split it, politely but adamantly decline — or suavely suggest that she buy you an after-dinner drink instead. However, if she nearly has an aneurism insisting over and over again that you split it, just let her; no one wants to have a screaming match over who’s paying, and besides, there’s a good chance she’s so insistent because she knows she doesn’t want a second date.
