That time after the first date is usually filled with uncertainty for most people. How should you act now? Should you reach out first? Should you reach out now or wait a few days? When’s the best time to bring up the second date? Are they even interested in going out with you again?
So many questions. Unfortunately, there’s no sure way to know the answers. Actually, there are no right or wrong answers. Dating is complex. Everyone is different. What’s fine for one could be a complete turn-off for another. There’s also no way to know what the other person is thinking without asking them directly.
A lot of people still think that a woman should wait for the man to call. And if he doesn’t, it only means he’s not interested. But you know what, that idea should be scrapped for all eternity! It just doesn’t make sense anymore. Good thing people are now veering away from that idea. Some women now take the initiative, and there are men who are just too shy and are glad that these women take matters in their own hands.
But of course, there are still men who want to do the chase. These are the men who always want to lead, to be in charge, and to conquer the woman. There are also women who still want to be wooed.
Knowing what kind of person you went on a date is kind of impossible right after the first date. You don’t usually find out until it’s too late. That’s why these first few days are the most difficult. But don’t worry, you’ll get through it. Just listen to your gut and don’t overthink things. Your heart will know what to do. If you find yourself in a dilemma, do what you’re most comfortable with. If it doesn’t go well, at least you could say you stayed true to yourself. After all, whether you’re in a relationship or not, that’s one thing that you should never compromise.
