For most people, there is nothing more awkward than a first date. Even if there is a lot of chemistry between you and your prospective new mate, the first outing together is fraught with pitfalls and situations that can be cringe-worthy at best. However, for some people, there is nothing smoother and more relatable than a first date as that’s when you can really get to know someone.
No matter what type of person you are, the date itself is important, but the way you react afterward can make or break your burgeoning relationship. Now is when things are both fragile and exciting, so you want to keep that momentum going while not sounding like you’re too eager to “seal the deal” and make it seem like that’s all you’re after.
So, with that in mind, we have a list of texts that are great ways to show your new girl how you feel while still maintaining the aura of chivalry and gentlemanly banter that attracted her to you in the first place.
Don’t worry. We’ve got your back.
What NOT To Do
Hopefully, the first date went off without a hitch, and both of you are eager for another one. Thankfully, you can now start to show a little more enthusiasm about your feelings, but you still want to take things one step at a time. After all, there’s no need to rush into things.
Ideally, at this stage, you will start to show her that you really care about her and want to see more of her, but don’t come across as clingy or needy. Also, don’t act like you’re “boyfriend and girlfriend” yet as that can make it seem like you’re committed already. Instead, you want to make sure to let her know how much the first date meant to you and set up another one ASAP.
Overall, don’t come on too strong and don’t get too needy with regards to how fast she texts you. Also, don’t start playing any games or following any rulebook as that will be a huge turn off for her.
So, without further ado, here are some great text ideas for after the first date that can get the right message across. Just use these in moderation, and you’ll be golden.
