Post 2nd Date? Need to ask my fellow forum friends ^_^

Hey everyone, so yeah, tomorrow I have a second date planned for my "future unborn children mother" lmao just playing; but need a little advice from the older ones out there. I haven't been dating or going out for awhile due to a bad break up last time and I'm nervous of course. My first date wasn't so bad, she brought her friend along and we went to the movies. Reason for bringing the friend on our date? Because if she didn't have any interest in me, the friend would create a distraction and she would leave. But she said she had a good time and wanted to see me again. Now tomorrow I have planned a reservation at 6:30 at a nice Mexican restaurant and then we are going to watch Due Date at 8:15. my concern is the talking situation. Can someone give me any advice on what to do when it comes to talking? We really already talked about likes and dislikes and hobbies and so forth so need something new. I don't want to be boring and I REALLY want for her to have more interest in me and to keep seeing me. This is really personal for me to say all this but I just hope someone can help me out with this because I want this story to end with a good ending. Thanks

i know the oldest line you hear is be yourself, but its true. make a girl laugh, and she'll love you till the day you die. but dont use unfunny jokes. and if you have a read on her morals and where she stands on certain issues, play to that. talk with her about those things. and remember, fawkward situations are bad, so stay away from those.

tell her over and over how good she looks, but don't over do it
don't talk about yourself , if you both like the same music talk that up
don't ask about politics or religion yet.
Bring her a rose
and good luck man

Thanks to both of you. Yeah I don't want those awkward silent moments. I can make a girl laugh, I tend to joke around on things which gets them to laugh. She always tries to look good for me and I make sure she knows that. Definitely will be bringing her a rose. I feel more confident now. Thank you!

I don't think movies are good for the first couple of dates. You have to get to know her better, and not much talking goes on at a movie. Go do something else.

Well this is not like a random girl out on a date with a random guy. I knew her since last year but never got the chance nor courage to ask her out till now. But since we have a bit of knowledge of each other, she doesn't mind. She actually likes it though. She cuddled up next to me on our first date because we watched Saw in 3D which she didn't like too much but one it was her choice in movie and two she enjoyed having me there by her side. That and there's nothing really big to do down here in MD which sucks.

bowling is fun generally there is a midnight bowl and they have a dj and so forth out here, make a good time out of bowling, but that can wait until you to can go out with more friends as a group fun thing.

Yeah I was going to ask her if she liked to bowl and was going to plan that in with the dinner and a movie but that sounds good to wait it out and get more friends and her involved.

You've known her for a year and she brought another person along for the first date in case she doesn't have any interest in you? That doesn't make any sense and that's just wrong.

Dear hopeful in Maryland:

Yeah I'm gonna have to go with be yourself and remind yourself that she will appreciate that even if you don't get instant feedback. Eye contact when you talk to her will encourage her to be open with you and also help you read her better.
A big problem I had when I first started dating girls is that I avoided small talk or ice breakers to create the impression that I was deep or whatever. Didn't work out. Doesn't really matter WHAT you say because in whatever you do say you can allow your enthusiasm and good feelings about being on a date with her be apparent.

And if it doesn't end up with you to together, you're still gaining valuable experience!

Sorry about the Dear Abby heading. I couldn't resist.

Well technically we haven't talked like face to face. It was either on the phone (text) or computer. So we didn't really get to know each other that much until now. And actually she just explained to me about her friend... Her friend just wanted to get out of the house and go with us, and I didn't want to be rude and all so I explained to her look I'm on a date if you want to come you buy your own ticket and see your own movie, which she did and I had my date all to myself by ourselves in the theater (no body was there) . So it was a good first date and she was happy.

Thanks for the input and advice and the heading made me laugh but it is true, I am hoping for a good second date, I'm hoping for her to like me more and gain more interest in me, and I'm hoping that we can continue seeing each other more and build our relationship together. Because honestly, not a lot of cute girls down here in MD and I'm glad we met and dating because she's awesome lol

well seems how we are getting all personal and things let me tell you this. If it is going to work you both will know.

I used to think that I would never find a gal and be lonely my whole life. All this after first dates, and second dates, and akward moment, blah, blah, blah.

I now am married and have a kid and one on the way.

I met my wife at a hotel. (I know that sounds shaddy but its true). We both worked there. I work the night shift she worked the day. Well the owners of the joint thought it'd be cool to hook us up. Well, My shift started starting at 6pm, normally at 8pm. Hers started running into the 8o'clock hour. Needless to say we eventually hooked up, just for the fact that we got to know each other working overlaping schedules. For us it just clicked, unlike any other girl I was with. We have been together for 7 years.

But take it from me, you have to be yourself, don't talk about your truck, or anything about yourself, your dong, whatever.

After a couple times being with her you will just know if its right or not. If its not, then don't get hooked up on this gal. No matter how hot she is or whatever, there are other fish in the sea.

chances are this girl is not for you, maybe she is. Only time will tell.
