Ask Immediately After the Date
Check your calendar before you go on the first date.
Wait until the end of the date and then alter your stance so that you are looking directly at the other person.
Tell the person you had such a good time that you would like to make specific plans to see each other again. Recommend a day and a place for the next date.
Let the Person Come to You
Call the person a day or two after the first date.
Tell the person you had a good time and would be interested in going out again, but be very vague in terms of setting a date or time. Simply say, «I had fun. We should go out against sometime.»
End the telephone conversation by saying «Give me a call one of these days and we’ll make plans.» Wait two or three days to see if the person calls you to pin down specific plans for a date.
Evaluate how much you liked this person if no call was received. If you like her a lot, call her to make specific plans. If you were not convinced that your personalities matched, there is no need to call.
Send a Token of Affection
Think about all of the things the other person said on the first date. Perhaps he mentioned a favorite band, type of candy or movie.
Purchase a little token of affection based on the person’s likes and dislikes. This does not need to be expensive or elaborate. It could be something as simple as a cupcake or a potted plant.
Attach a handwritten note to the gift and leave the present on the person’s front doorstep. The note should be lighthearted and refer to something that happened on your date. For example, the note could read «I love a messy eater, and when you dribbled pasta sauce down your shirt, I knew you were someone I wanted to get to know better. Would you go bowling with me this Saturday?»
