How to close the second date by the end of the first – Guest Post
It’s simple gentlemen, you have to close on the second date before the end of the first date. If the conversation is flowing, she’s finding reasons to touch you and she’s playing with and/or flipping her hair, then you’re in like Flynn. If she is avoiding eye contact, kind of looking around, and checking her watch every three minutes then, I’m sorry dude, there is nothing I can write that is going to help you out on this one. Only thing I can suggest is going dutch, unless you don’t mind paying for someone’s meal/drink/coffee that you’re never going to see, ever again.
Throwing it out there when the date is wrapping up can also be a great way to close that second date. A simple: “We should do this again” when the bill has been ordered but before it comes means she’s trapped and has to answer you. Usually if she agrees to see you again in person, she will. If she says something sketchy like “we’ll see” then you’re going to have to put in a little extra work to get that second date. As she is leaning towards ‘no’
Paying the bill
If she offers to pay the bill, say something like “You can get the next one” with a playful wink and smile. You’re implying that you’re going to see her again without actually asking her out. If she says “Ok” then you’re good to go. If she’s looking offended throw in a: “I’m obviously kidding! I’m getting the next one too.” You have to read her face very fast as there can’t be too much of a pause between those two phrases without it looking unnatural.
Talking about the second date
Ladies like a little assertion. Talking about where you’re going to take her on the second date will get her excited and intrigued. If you can pull this off playfully you’re a master dater. If she mentions a restaurant she’s always wanted to try or an activity in the city that she’s interested in attending take that as your moment to say “Maybe that’s where I’ll take you on our second date.” If she says something like “What makes you think you’re getting a second date?” You can retort with something like “Aren’t I?” and make sure you smile!
