Men, do you ever wonder how well your date is going? Here are some telltale signs…

The Good: Keep it up! There is a natural attraction and the night looks very promising.

  • She keeps engaging you with questions.
  • She gets excited over similar interests/hobbies that you share.
  • She starts talking about her close friends and family.
  • She plays with objects on the table (straw, glasses, silverware).
  • She playfully teases you.
  • She laughs at every one of your jokes—even when you’re not trying to be funny.
  • She asks for your advice when looking at the menu.
  • She holds her gaze when talking to you, and you have her undivided attention.
  • She fidgets and keeps adjusting herself (hair, dress, jewelry, etc.).
  • When seated, her legs are crossed in your direction and her hips are facing you.
  • She constantly plays with her hair and reveals her neck.
  • She finds any reason to touch you (brushes your arm, plays with your hair, etc.).
  • She insists on sharing food, especially the dessert.
  • She agrees to another round of drinks or buys you a drink.
  • She insists on taking you to places she loves.
  • She goes over plans for the next dates.
  • She offers to split the bill.


The Bad: You’re not completely out of it. You just need to engage her more. The key is to make a woman feel relaxed and at ease through casual conversation. The less it feels like a date, the better off you are.

  • She begins to look at other tables.
  • Questions asked are very general and lack creativity.
  • There are moments of silence that last 10 seconds or longer.
  • She forces a smile when you joke with her.
  • She begins to fold her arms.


The Ugly: Game over. You might as well scratch this date off as a loss.

  • She won’t unfold her arms.
  • She stares into her phone.
  • Her answers are very short—one to two words.
  • Her conversations with other people, such as the waiter, are livelier.
  • She excuses herself multiple times in a short period.
  • She says she’s tired.
  • She rarely makes eye contact.
  • She completely ignores the check once it arrives.
  • She has a vague/general excuse for leaving early.
