Step 1: Be polite Be polite and either leave the door open for another date or make it clear that there wasn't a spark. Don't lead someone on by saying you'll call when you know you won't. Step 2: Evaluate what happened Evaluate the date the next day with a clear head. Go over what you liked and disliked about the person and what you did together. Tip Cut your losses if there's no chemistry. If they call, be kind, but don't agree to another night out Step 3: Wait a couple days Wait a couple days before you call if you want to see them again. No one wants to seem desperate. Step 4: Relax Be relaxed for that first phone call. You don't want to seem like a potential stalker. Gauge the other person's tone to find out if they had a good time. Then you can decide whether you should ask for another date or be cool and wait a few more days. Step 5: Ask for a second date Be casual about the second date. Cover yourself by suggesting a group activity, referring to a common interest, like music. Suggest that the other person "tag along" to a club or to see a band, as if you were going anyway. Step 6: Find a physical activity Go bowling -- something fun and active -- because you can laugh at yourselves and cut the pressure. Step 7: Use second date to measure Measure your expectations -- likely optimistic -- on the second date. If the relationship looks like something you won't pursue, tell yourself you're not settling down yet anyway. Did You Know? The organization, Women Halting Online Harassment, reports that 87 percent of online harassment victims are women.
