when leaving the restaurant. What is she trying to figure out about the guy?
Most Helpful Girl
If she genuinely forgot her gloves on purpose, she may be the kind of girl who would try to figure out if you are on of the "chivalrous" types of men; if you'll care enough about her to see if you can locate and return them. It is a bit like if she stays in the car for an extra second too long, testing if you'll bother opening her door (especially on the first date... obviously no one expects a man to open it every time).
Personally, I would not engage in such a practice. I am not a damsel in distress, and if I truthfully misplaced my gloves I would reverse to hunt them down myself. Of course, if he at least /offers/, it is nice to see that he concerns enough to help. (As I would likewise do if he forgot something.)0
