When Should You Just Say No To A Second Date?


When Should You Just Say No To A Second Date?

3. You are forced to discuss the weather – Once I had a date interrupt our mutual silence to ask how I enjoyed last week’s weather.

I feigned exhaustion and he faked feeling distracted by work matters. Shockingly, Mr. Weather asked me out again and even more surprising was my answer. I decided to give the conversation another go, hoping nerves and circumstances stumped both of us for words. But in reality, first date conversation is supposed to be the easiest because you are starting from scratch so the second date was even more quiet than the first. After all, we really didn’t have anything left to attempt to talk about….other than the weather of course.
