When Should You Just Say No To A Second Date?
It is easy to decline a second date when the first one is a disaster but what if it was just fine? Many singles feel like they should never deny someone a second date without clear overwhelming evidence but I disagree. You should just say no if:
1. He doesn’t pass the sweatpants test – Can you confidently state that you would rather be at home relaxing in your sweatpants than spending another evening out with Mr. Mediocre? If your answer is yes, then feel free to pass on the offer.
2. You aren’t sure if you should be listening or writing – These are the dates where you hardly get a word in because Mr. Limelight is doing all the talking. Sure, he is attractive and polite but you’re the only one asking questions and mid-way through you wonder if you are on a date or an interview. Admittedly, I have persevered through date #1, thinking that date #2 will mark the end of the interview phase but to no avail. Unless you enjoy one sided conversation, leave Mr. Limelight on your first date.
