take your dating destiny into your own hands

Nothing is more tedious than an endless string of first dates that lead to nowhere. If you keep hearing, "I'll call you," but your phone doesn't ring...it’s time to take your dating game to the next level!

To make it past the first encounter, four things needs to happen. I call them the 4 C’s: Connection, Chemistry, Compatibility, and Curiosity. They go together like this. When you create an emotional connection, you spark a deeper physical chemistry, which gives him time to assess whether there is any personality compatibility, and when there is, he’s naturally curious and can’t wait to see you again.

So here are some ways to ignite that “gotta see you” attitude on your next date.

7 Ways to Score a Second Date

1. Exude Interest

Nothing shuts a guy down faster than not being able to tell if you are interested in him. So show your interest with the three magic words, “Tell me more,” while making friendly eye contact, and touching him lightly on the hand or shoulder.

2. Be Captivating

But you can’t just be interested; you also have to be interesting. A great way to captivate his interest is to be unlike every other girl he’s had a first date with. To stand out, arm yourself with some fascinating questions he’s not used to hearing on the first date. This will create engaging conversation that makes you both seem compelling.

3. Have an Opinion

Oh sure, guys like a girl who’s easy going and friendly, but they also want to know you have a back bone and will stand up for what you believe and won’t put up with any crap from him either. Confidence (not aggressiveness or arrogance) is sexy. So, whether he’s asking about what restaurant, which movie, or your political standing, avoid the “Whatever you like” trap. State your honest opinion and allow him to meet your needs too.

4. Radiate Passion

Day to day life can be a little mind-numbing, so when you come along and excitedly share something meaningful that you are passionate about, you’ll light up and create a sense of aliveness between you. So don’t be shy, share what matters most to you and why. Then ask him what he’s most passionate about too. The extra energy this generates will create magnetic attraction.
