If you’re anything like most men, you’ve probably experienced going on a first date with a woman you like and pretty much thought that you’ve got it all in the bag. But when you ask her to go out with you again, you unfortunately find out that she’s not too keen on having another date with you.
Now while there is no magic formula that will guarantee a woman will go on a second date with you, there are simple ways that can easily boost your chances of convincing her to do so. So if you’re looking to score that somewhat elusive date number two, here are a few pointers that you should keep in mind…
Stash away your phone.
Nothing ruins an otherwise amazing date than giving your mobile phone or some other device more attention than the woman you’re with. You will only give her the notion that you’re impatient and would like to leave as soon as you can or perhaps someone who sees her that she’s not really worth your time. Either way a woman won’t be too happy to go out on a date with you again if you choose to stick your nose at your phone most of the time.
Ask open-ended questions.
A lot of guys make the mistake of asking questions that can be easily answered by a simple yes or no during a first date. Besides making the woman you’re with feel extremely bored, she can also think that you don’t consider her as someone interesting to have a conversation with. Instead of asking her if she likes to cook, find out what her favorite recipes are. That easily gives you an idea how to maneuver your date to your advantage as well.
Tell her jokes.
You may already know by now that getting humor in the picture is one effective strategy to use if you’d like to make a very nice impression on your date. Apart from making it easier for her to build a connection with you, she will think that you’re a nice guy and asking her out again won’t be a problem. Moreover, remember to stay clear from off-color jokes and other bits of crude humor that you normally share with other guys to avoid making her think that you’re getting fresh with her. You can always do that later when you two are much closer.
Show her you’re a gentleman.
Chivalry isn’t dead and showing your date that you’re one smooth chap is guaranteed to make her feel more eager to go on a second date with you. Don’t hesitate to pull her a chair, take off your coat when she feels chilly and basically making her feel that you’re her knight in shining armor. By the way, having good posture is also a mark of a true gentleman.
