Should You Say Yes to a Second Date? Ask a Psychic

The second date can lay the foundation for real connection.
The second date can lay the foundation for real connection.

A good first date can send those butterflies fluttering, but a good second date can really set the stage for a deeper connection. Let a Psychic explain when you should say yes to a second date.

Why Are Second Dates Important?

We tend to give date number one a lot of power. If you're not feeling it the first time around, why waste your time? And if you are feeling it, but the object of your attraction doesn't return your texts? Well, that hurts. The second date is a lot more meaningful than you might think on the surface. Date number two is where you really start learning about shared interests, goals, and ideas. If you make it to the second date, it means both folks are interested, which makes the stakes inevitably higher.

Round two is when you get to put your real personality on display, and it's a great way to test if the manners your date displayed on the first date are real. (Tipped well and treated your server with respect on the first date, but not so much on the second date? Total red flag.) Date two is also a chance for attraction to build, so if you were drawn to someone but not sure how you feel after the first date, the second date offers a chance to check out the sparks again.

Here's the thing. First dates generally aren't mind-blowing amazing since you're both testing the waters. But if someone is looking to find real love, they will be willing to put in some extra time for date two. The second date is when things get real, and you get to see if dates three, four, and beyond are really worth pursuing. You have a chance to move past the surface and delve into meaningful conversation. So, how do you know if there should be a second date?

What Are the Signs There Will Be a Second Date?

An intuitive Psychic Advisor can help you figure out if there will be a second date (or if your potential bae has already asked you to meet up again if there SHOULD be a second date). But if you're sitting at the dinner table wondering where date number one is leading, here are four signs you're on the road to date number two:

  • The conversation gets real: If you're already diving into (and agreeing on) real-world topics like politics, you're getting past the surface from the start. Likewise, if you're showing off your brainpower and humor and your date is engaged, chances are, they want to get to know you better.
  • You're both making your feelings known: Yeah, we've all heard that you shouldn't show your cards on the first date. Throw away that idea. Your date is more likely to want a second date if they can tell you're into it. If you can see they're into it too, you're on a good path to a second date. Sometimes it's as simple as verbalizing your feelings.
  • You're getting positive non-verbal communication: Even if your date doesn't come right out and say they're feeling the vibes, you can find signs that they're excited. If their voice gets louder while they talk to you, that's one major signal. Another big clue you're both looking for a second date? You're cracking up over the same things at the same time. Finding yourselves laughing at the same things on the first date indicates romantic interest.
  • You're not sure if you want another date: Sounds counterintuitive, sure. But if you aren't certain if you should go on a second date, consider that a sign to book the date. If you WERE sure this person wasn't for you, you wouldn't even be thinking about it — you'd know the answer was no. If you have any doubt or uncertainty, there's a chance the person really is right for you and just needs another chance to feel more comfortable and open up. You'll never know if they were just nervous if you don't go for a second date.


What Are the Signs There Will Be No Second Date?

Of course, there are some clear signs that you shouldn't go on a second date. Go back to swiping if you see these signs:

  • They're easily distracted: First-date jitters are one thing. If your date is constantly checking their phone or more interested in everything going on around them than what you're saying, it's not a good sign your connection will last.
  • You go more than a day without follow-up: It's pretty common these days to get a text thanking a date for a great time right after the date ends or first thing the next morning. If you don't hear anything over the course of the day after the date — or if you send the first text and don't hear anything back — you're likely not hearing from this person again.
  • There's no talk about the long-term: No, you don't need a step-by-step long-term plan, but it's common to ask what your date is generally looking for the first time you go out. If their answer doesn't contain anything about a partner, they might not be looking for a second date.
  • The vibes are off: Flirting feels forced? Conversation gets dull? There's just a general, well, lack of enthusiasm? A second date probably isn't necessary to confirm you're not right for each other.


What Are Some Second Date Ideas?

You both agree to a second date. Now what? This is when things get real, so plan a meeting that allows you to explore your chemistry and learn about each other. Some fun second date ideas include:

  • Visiting a museum.
  • Going dancing.
  • Hiking, walking, or biking.
  • Cooking together.
  • Bowling.
  • Volunteering.
  • Going to a concert or festival.
  • Spending a day at an amusement park.
