Gay Dating: Secure That All Important Second Date

Gay dating. You’re meeting up with someone you’ve met on Gay Adult Chat for the first time and want to make the best first impression. If you really like them, you’re going to want to get a second date in the bag. So what can you do to make sure you get it? Our tips below will help.

Make sure you’re on time.
It wouldn’t create the best first impression if you’re late on your first date with someone. Make sure you leave extra time for your journey to allow for any mishaps, as well as plenty of time to get ready beforehand. If you do end up running late, make sure you inform your date so they don’t think you’ve stood them up!

Dress appropriately for your date.
When going to a nice restaurant, make sure you wear something nice and make an effort. Equally if you’re just meeting for coffee, there’s no need to go overboard. You don’t need to spend hours worrying about your outfit, but your date will notice if you’ve put a bit of effort in.

Ask questions.
Make sure you get to know your date properly by asking them questions. It shows that you’re interested if you bother to find out things about them. For example ask about their career, basic information about their family, where they grew up etc. Keep it light hearted though, they don’t need to feel like they’re in an interview!

Make eye contact.
The best way to show your date that you’re interested is to maintain eye contact when they’re talking. This shows that you’re listening and paying attention to what they’re saying.
You can also see if they’re interested in you and what you’re saying if they’re maintaining eye contact with you as well.

Make sure there are no ‘barriers’ between you.
Try not to fold your arms or cross your legs as this creates a physical barrier between you and can portray that you’re not very open towards your date. You may also want to move things on the table so you have a better and clearer view of them whilst you’re talking.

Don’t keep checking your phone.
It’s okay to check the time or check if there are any emergencies a couple of times whilst you’re out. However repeatedly checking your phone makes it look like you don’t want to be there and aren’t interested in your date.
They should be your main focus whilst you’re together and if you’re interested you’ll want them to think that. Make sure you’re not distracted.

Pay your date compliments.
Obviously this is only if they are genuine! Do you like his jacket? – tell him. If you think his shoes are nice – tell him. If you think he has lovely eyes – TELL HIM! It’s nice to know your date likes things about you. It’ll help give you an idea of whether they’re into you or not – so show your appreciation!

Ten Topics To Avoid On A First Date

 

You want to secure a second date so make sure you avoid talking about these topics.

 

  1. Politics.

You don’t need to know what their persuasion is on a first date. This could affect how much you like them/how well the date goes and there’s no need to talk about it. Keep conversation light hearted and get to know each other.

 

  1. Previous partners.

Do you really want to know what their last partner was like? You’ll probably just end up comparing yourself to them which is never a good thing. You also probably don’t want to know how many previous partners they’ve had or how many dates they’ve been on – it’s never what you want to hear!

 

  1. Money.

Never ask how much they earn or tell them how much you earn. Either way you won’t come across well. Keep it to simpler topics like hobbies or even just what they do for work.

 

  1. Religion.

Religion can be a very personal subject. Many people will not agree on religious subjects so it’s best not to bring this into conversation.

 

  1. Marriage/children.

This is definitely not a topic for a first date! You don’t want to scare them off so don’t bring up commitment until you’re both sure that’s where your relationship is heading.

 

  1. Work.

You can absolutely find out what each other does for a living but don’t moan about not liking your job or how much you dislike your colleague – your date isn’t interested! Also you don’t know if your date knows anyone you work with so it’s best not to moan about them!

 

  1. Yourself.

You will of course be talking about yourself when your date asks questions about you but don’t keep talking about yourself unprompted. Ask your date questions about themselves rather than banging on about yourself all the time.

 

  1. What you’re looking for.

Don’t get into a conversation about what sort of person you’re looking for, it only shows you as being high maintenance or picky (you’re allowed to be picky, just don’t let them know that!).

 

  1. Your own appearance.

If you put yourself down, your date won’t find this attractive. If you big yourself up they won’t find this attractive either. Let them compliment you if they want to and by all means compliment them but don’t mention your own appearance.

 

  1. Your family background.

By all means tell them how many siblings you have but there’s no need for any more detail than that, they’re on a date with you, not your entire family!
