    Stuck at the first date stage

    So, I started dating earlier this year. So far, I had three dates off some apps. The first one was ok, but we mutually agreed there was no connection. I felt the second one had potential, but she seemed to be trying to screw it up at the end. The last one was really fun, but in a friendly sort of way, and again we agreed there was no potential there. All three dates ended remarkably the same way. We would spend roughly 1.5 hours together, then she’d check the time and say she has to go, thanking me for meeting up with her. Recently, I matched with another girl off tinder. We messaged for a long time, and then I added her on fb. We seem to have a lot of common interests, and I’m getting a really good vibe from our interactions, her profiles/bios. I didn’t feel this way about the other two, I can’t help it, it’s just my intuition, which is usually correct. I asked her out, and she enthusiastically said yes. We’re going to meet up on Sunday. How do I keep her interested?

    by just enjoying the moment and having a good time and enjoying yourself, and your new date. thats it.
    if you “try” to do something – you’ll fail. (ever “try” to go to sleep? nevr happens does it… but if you dont’ think about it and “just let it happen” next thing you know your’e sleeping. same with dating).

    stay IN THE MOMENT and just enjoy it. that’s all.

    Seems to be much more common with online dating. I am going through the same thing, but it seems normal. Dating someone you were friends with, or at least knew a little first, you’d have a good idea if you’d work. But meeting online, everyone is so different in person, so odds of a relationship are much less.
