I am not made for dating. Yes, I'm only 20. What do I know about dating? Probably nothing. But one thing I do know is that dating is not easy and it pretty much sucks. Let's be honest the first date can be awkward; you know the awkward silence, ridicoulous interactions, and even getting bored by the person you're dating. If you're lucky enough to make it through the first date, the decision that comes next is whether to go on a second date or not. Deciding whether to go on a second date can be difficult but if you think that person is worth another shot, you should give it a try! But if not, don't worry, here are 9 signs you souldn't go on a second date.
1. No butterflies
If you don't feel the chemistry on the first date, you should keep moving.
2. You have no desire to look or reply at their texts the morning after
If you were interested in that person, you would want to reply instantly.
3. They make you feel uncomfortable
Listen to your inuition! If you feel uneasy when you're with them, that's a red flag! Whether it was the way they looked at you or the things they said.
4. They don't ask anything about you
The whole point of dating is to get to know people so you can do that whole falling in love thing and find an awesome partner. If your date is too busy talking about themselves without even once asking you a single question, then they're not right for you.
5. They spend their time on their phone
This a deal breaker! Your date has to have their undivided attention on you. It's not bad for them to glance once or twice at their phone but being on their phone for the entire date is a big NO!
6. No eye contact
If someone isn't looking you in the eye, they either don't care, or have something to hide. Of course, there are those who are genuinely uncomfortable with eye contact, but even those people make an effort.
7. All they do is talk about their exes
No one should be talking about their exes on a first date! I get it, not every relationship ends on a good note, but that doesn't mean anyone has any right to talk bad about their ex, especially to a stranger.
8. They don't what they're looking for
You don't want to waste your time with someone who doesn't know what they want. You need to figure that out for yourself, if you haven't already.
9. You just weren’t feeling it, for whatever reason
At the end of the night, whether you go on a second date is about you and what you're feeling. Even if your date is just dying to see you again, if you're not into it, then don't sign up for a second date.
This does not mean you're selfish; it's knowing what you want and not settling for anything less. <3
