Dating is hard! When you had a great first date, you want to figure out how to get a second date to see if maybe this could be “the one.” However, What do you do? Some would have you wait at least 24 hours to reach out, but what’s wrong with texting as soon as later that night? It shows your enthusiasm and could get you that second date even sooner. And these clever post first date texts could help.
“If you’re hoping I already forgot about you knocking over that salt shaker, you’re sadly mistaken” – Swap the generic “I had a great time” text for one that includes a reminder of a moment the two of you shared. Find something to joke about from your date to show your sense of humor and that you’re still thinking about the evening.
“The craziest thing just happened to me on my way home” – This isn’t a suggestion to make up a whole dramatic story, but if something strange or funny happens on your way home, use it. It shows your date they’re still on your mind, in a more subtle way.
“I’m still thinking about that pizza we had tonight. We’ll have to go back there sometime” – Focus on some specific part of the night that you really enjoyed to remind your date that how well the night went. Tell them what you loved and then suggest a repeat performance.
“Put your hand up if you had a good time tonight” – Sure, it’s cheesy, but think of it as a fun way to gauge your date’s interest and express your own. You could go with a fake survey, like, “on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being very satisfied, how would you rank your date tonight?” Or ask them to describe your date with an emoji. If they send you back a 100 emoji, you can probably count on date two.
