After the end of a long term relationship last year, I'm back on the market, and when on a date with a seventh girl tonight. The longest of the seven was two months. The shortest was two dates. Had my heart broken and vice versa.
I went on a date tonight with a really beautiful girl. We ate Indian food. The date lasted only two hours (we talked on the phone twice before, for a total of 2 and a half hours combined). She said she wanted to get groceries before it closed in an hour. I asked her if she wanted to get a drink near by, but she declined saying she needed to get up early, and needed to get groceries... She told me if had nothing to do with "what was going on here", referring to our date. Anyway, we left, and hugged, and she may have said something like "we'll talk soon", I can't remember because I was nervous.
Maybe there is no way to get insight into this, but do you think I'll have a shot at a second date? We talked to the whole time, and it never got awkward.

There is one lesson I've learned in my years as an adult and that is: stop putting so much weight on people & events. Enjoy the date as it is happening and when it ends, find something else to enjoy instead of focusing on the past enjoyment. Putting your attention on the past keeps you in the past and, as a result, holds you back. If you two were a match of some sort, then you'll get together again. If not, then you won't. But then there will be another person who will come along to have another enjoyable moment with. So whatever you're doing, whoever you are with, make it your mission to enjoy yourself at that moment. This method will eliminate a great deal of your stress.2
