  • No, it's only a bad sign if the entire date is awkward silence. But a few pauses here and there are expected on the first few dates.

  • Hmm, no...i don't get phased by silence. Besides, it takes some people longer to warm up with someone. I only stop seeing the other person when I see no potential for growth.

    • Depends on the content of the conversation, how well it flows. There could be those situations where its uncomfortable, like is forced random topics. But generally yes, its a good sign.

  • No date is ever perfect specially when you are getting to know people so I wouldn't give up just because of something so minuscule.

    • Not necessarily. I take his body language as the most reliable sign.

  • O fcourse NOT. It's normal for those moments to appear sometimes, becouse people are nervous, they are trying to make the best impression possible, and awkward silence is result of that. If someone decides not to date somebody anymore just becouse of that, then something is seriously wrong with that person.

What Guys Said 2

  • I kind of like a little bit of silence. It can be better than forced conversations where the person is just saying anything so there isn't awkward silence.

    • Sure as long as the conversation wasn't forced

  • Well, you can't be talking all the time. I wouldn't let one awkward silence moment determine things
