LS: Don’t forget that people are nervous and a first date is just that, a first date. Think of all the people you met once and exchanged a few pleasantries with, but then met again and started to talk more and found you have a lot in common, and all of sudden you’re having a great, animated conversation. First date to second date can differ that greatly and produce significantly different results. I always say if a first date is neutral but not negative, give it a second chance. You never know.
