Ever found yourself on a date with a girl and you have no clue as to whether or not the date is going well? We’ve put together a list of some of the top signs of a good first date to help you assess whether you’re on the road to success…or if you should just ask for the check and be on your merry way already.
Is she laughing and smiling a lot? These are two major signs of a good first date. If a girl appears engaged in the conversation and is laughing at your jokes and stories, this is good. Really good. A girl that keeps checking her phone every five minutes to update her Facebook status and excuses herself to go to the bathroom isn’t shy about expressing that she isn’t that into the date, but a girl that gives you lots of eye contact and is giving back to the conversation is clearly saying that she’s having a good time.
If a girl asks you questions about yourself, that’s another one of the top signs of a good first date. By taking the time to get to you know, she is indicating that she is interested in you as a person. And if she in turn shares personal stories and other details with you, that’s a sign that she wants to open up her life to you by inviting you into her personal space.
When a girl constantly brings up an ex or talks openly about other guys, that’s a clear sign that she is A)emotionally unavailable, B) a player, or C) putting you in the dreaded friend zone. One of the major signs of a good first date is when a girl puts all her focus on you and leaves other guys out of the equation. Sure, it’s okay if she casually mentions an ex from a long time ago if it’s relevant to some story she’s telling, but at the end of the night, exes and other guys belong in one place: the past.
The final indicator as to whether you’re on a successful first date is if the girl either invites you inside for a drink or suggests that you two do something again in the near future. Still feeling unsure? Read 5 Ways To Score A Second Date for a list of tips that will help you seal the deal.
