This might sound funny, but for real it's the fact. Dating is like a game where the guy with an IQ of 130 beats the one with an IQ of 80. It’s not so easy to tell if a date was fine or not. Even those people who went on a date can’t grade their date result on a score of 10, especially when it's the first date.
Although, both of you have been communicating via phone call or text messages, and boom! Both of you are meeting for the first time. Everyone on the search for how to confirm their first date went was awesome or terrible, it’s only those who have been in such a situation that can give a perfect answer. So how do you intend to get in touch with them?
But worry not, and stay tuned as I will share with you all the signs I’ve gathered through research from girls and guys who have been on a first date before.
Could this be the time to start planning for another?

Here Are The Signs A First Date Went Well
Consider the following signs if you want to confirm your date with a person was superb or not:
1. The date was longer than expected
This is one of the best ways to confirm if your first date did go fine. There is no one that would like to remain in a meeting where there is no fun or interest. The greater the fun or interest at the date center, the longer the time spent.
Nobody will like to remain in a place, or meeting, where there is boredom; instead, they just discuss for a while and move out. Most times when things are going on just the way you planned, and the conversation between you and your date is flowing smoothly, to end the meeting is always a problem. If this is what you just experienced in your first meeting with that guy or girl, then I’m happy to say it was awesome.
2. Continuous eye contact
When there is continuous eye contact between two people who are on their first date, it's a signal that things are going on perfectly.
But most people believe making eye contact with someone is not polite especially when it's the first date hmm… Well, I know it’s just the first time you people are meeting each other but when the eye needs to move and they are always making contact it means there is chemistry going on, and will you like to stop a reaction with great entropy? I’m pretty sure it's NO. Unless the reaction is completed, nothing can be done.
So continuous eye contact is not an impolite thing in a date; instead, it's part of the signs things are going on smoothly.
3. No distraction
A good sign that things are going on as planned on a date is when there is no form of distraction from both parties. Both of you are paying attention to what is going on within your realm. As we all know, it’s normal to have phone distraction during a date. This often happens most times because the connection between you and your partner is not as strong or one of you feels shy.
To be sincere with you, it’s normal since it's the first date but the sign isn’t a good one. You will know whether the date was awesome when you don’t see any form of distractions; instead, both of you are paying attention to each other.
4. Lack of anxiety during the date
Anxiety on your first meeting with a guy or a girl certainly ruins everything. You don’t have the courage to ask anything or do as you like (no freedom). If your first dates are filled with nervousness or anxiety then there is nothing good about it.
When you are on a date and there is a natural connection between you and your partner, comfortability is present, and the flow in conversation brings laughter to the air, there is no doubt everything is going well. And at the end of everything, you will be certain it was indeed a superb outing together. It’s a cool sign.
This is another perfect way to determine if your date was nice or not. Imagine a first date filled with fun and laughter and no exchange of social media to continue what was happening at the meeting location, then everything is gone.
Continuation really matters after the first meeting in a relationship. It indicates things were fine and the relationship could be an intimate one. In fact, a second date can be scheduled during the conversation via Whatsapp, Facebook, or any other instant chat app. A lot will be discussed.
6. Continuous meditation on what was discussed
Just because you want to keep the gist for your friends on how everything happened at the date, you may continue meditating on every single moment and event at the center where you and your partner met.
But in a situation where you don’t want to talk about the things that happened with anyone or even think about them, then nothing seems good about the date.
7. A discussion about future plans
When you and your partner are already discussing what you want to do together in the nearest future, then it's a good sign everything is fine. For me, if our conversation isn’t getting so deep to the extent that we discuss our future plans, it means nothing seems right at all.
We don’t need to talk about crappy things when we know it’s just the first time we are meeting each other. This is surely going to turn me away.
8. There were lots of questions asked
During the conversation, there were a lot of questions asked, which made you really interested in giving answers. When I hear someone talk about horrible dates, the first thing that comes to my mind is that he or she has gone on an outing with one of these conceited guys or girls. These sets of individuals are only interested in talking about how cool they are, nothing more.
When a guy or girl talks less and listens more to what you have to say, it gives room for him to think deeply and give a good response during the conversation. This shows you are really interesting and they want to know more about you.
9. You were walked to your destination
This happens mostly when you are a girl. Guys who are really interested in a relationship with you don’t care about the distance you will travel when you are leaving the place where you had your date.
They want to keep the conversation going until you get to your destination then they move towards theirs. Sometimes they would even like to linger for a while after you've reached your destination. This is a strong sign you had a great time together.
10. You got a text immediately
In the end, he texted you immediately after leaving the venue where you both met. If you receive a text message or a phone call from your date after leaving each other, it’s a good sign everything was awesome. It’s even a must you receive a message like “are you home now?”. This will show you both enjoyed the meeting together and might even want to plan on fixing another one during the conversation.
This is the last sign because it’s what happens at the end of a great date.
If you go on a date with a person and you don’t get or see any of the signs listed above, it's a sign that your first date didn’t go well. Something needs to be patched up maybe if the both of you schedule another date though.
The signs that a 2nd date went well include:
– There is an amendment to everything that was right on the first date.
– At the end of the date, you know everything about your partner.
– There was a kiss when you both wanted to leave each other.
This is very easy to tell. The girl tends to be interested in everything that's going on at that moment. She tends to become loquacious and you might think it’s bad of her, but she actually wants to be involved in everything.
What you should expect after a first date solely depends on how the date went. If it was superb you should be expecting a second and if not just forget it. Nothing should be expected. You really need to go through the signs I’ve listed above about the first date.
If you don’t want to share the experience with anyone or your date looks moody at the end of the date, then it's one of those signs that the date was bad.
You never can tell the amount of dates required to be in a relationship. It varies from person to person so there is no specific amount of dates. For some people, it can just be a date and that’s all while others might get to the fifth and there is still no relationship.
There are still a lot of other signs out there to confirm how your first date went, but the 10 signs listed above are the most fundamental ones. I hope the information about the signs for the first dates are detailed enough and helpful?
If it's a yes, you can drop your comments below and if it’s a no I’m always happy to know more.
As hopeless romantic I struggled tremendously in my love life. After many years of searching, trial & error, and countless failed relationships, I finally found my Mr. Right. It wasn't an easy road, but one that has taught me an incredible amount about the workings of relationships between men and women, and this is what I hope to share through my writing on this blog.
