Without wanting to turn the evening into the Spanish Inquisition, there are some things it’s useful to find out at this stage which will help you decide whether or not to move forward.The second date is an opportunity to begin the process of really getting to know this person.Show an interest in them and be open and forthcoming when they ask about you.Avoid closed questions that require just ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers and opt more for conversation starters rather than a constant stream of probing questions.
You’ve met and established that you want to see each other again, but what do you need to know to move the relationship forward?
If they ask about your exes, be honest and open without going into all the graphic details.
This isn’t a therapy session and, like you, what your date is looking for is evidence that the past is behind you and that you’re ready to embark on a happier future.
They show you’ve taken notice of what they’ve shared to date and that you’re keen to know more about them, rather than just talk about yourself.
Talking about exes is a no-no on a first date but it’s not unusual for the subject to come up on a second date.
Try to ensure that the last hour of the date is spent on uplifting or amusing subjects rather than heavy things so you part feeling good and wanting to do it again.
