Picture this – the first date is going well, you’re really connecting with the other person, and you want to go on a second date. But how do you go about asking for a second date the right way? In today’s modern dating world, the good news is that there are so many ways to ask someone out on a second date, and it doesn’t matter who asks.
The bad news is that because there are so many ways to ask, there are plenty of ways to get it wrong. Nerves can get in the way, communication may be unclear, and you might not know how to ask your partner out again.
Here’s are some tips and tricks on asking your date out for another night of fun.
Be Kind and Courteous
This one may seem obvious, but we mean more than simply just being kind when you ask someone out again. Tell them why you want to go out with them again. Everyone appreciates compliments, and if you truly like someone, there’s no reason not to share that when you’re asking them to go out with you again.
Never assume – when you start to ask someone out on a second date by complimenting them and telling them what you like about them, they’re going to either reciprocate the conversation or won’t. If they aren’t reciprocating and aren’t complimenting you back, it may be a sign that they might not want to go out on a second date. Being kind isn’t just the right thing to do, it can also help you read the signals that your date is sending.
Confidence is key. If you aren’t confident in yourself, you may not sound genuine when you’re asking your date out again. It’s definitely scary putting yourself out there and asking someone out again. Just remember that you already got one date with your person and it went well. The worst that person can say is no, which means you get to go out and find the right person for you.
There are plenty of people who feel like they have to hide their feelings and emotions on a first date. As we said before, if you like a person, you shouldn’t be afraid to show it. Be open and honest about your feelings. Whether you’re casually dating or you’re looking for the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, being honest is the foundation of a successful relationship.
Ask Before the First Date Ends
There’s no ‘rule’ that says you have to wait a certain amount of time before contacting your date or asking them out again. We suggest that you should try to ask your date out again near the end of your first date. If it’s going well, chances are that both people involved want to do it again, so why wait to set that up?
It also means more to ask someone out again when it’s done in person rather than via text. Asking someone out in person shows vulnerability and also shows that you care about this person. It’s always exciting at the end of the date to be asked out again.
