    Default How long should a first date last?

    So how long?

    I just took this girl out and she kept talking and talking. 2 Hours+ on a lunch date?

    Haha, thats a good sign actually.
    Ive been on first dates that lasted 4+ hours.
    I say the longer the better, shows that shes interested and you can take it from there.

    It would be a pretty shitty first date if she hung out for 30 minutes and bailed..

    just my 0.02 cents

    Until the next morning!

    I think long dates are a good sign that you're getting along, but short dates can be good too if you don't know each other very well. Then you don't miss out on a whole night if the date sucks, and if it's good, chances are there will be another date.

    Bad ones last as long as you can stand it. Good ones should last until the next day if she is a naughty one, otherwise it ends with a primo make out session at her door step or in your car when you drop her off.

    Done both, none were sustainable over time though.

    Dating sucks.

    QFT.

    Yeah, we got along good. I didn't talk to much, it was maybe a 70/30 split her/me.

    Definitely a second date in the works.

    This is where it gets tricky, after the second date any chances of FTF get pretty slim. Gotta seal the deal

    First date should be quick and simple IMO. Going out for coffee is always good because its pretty casual and you can make plans for a second date from there. Or if you're not interested its easy to bail when you're coffee is done without looking like an asshole...

    Her talking too much is better than her not saying anything at all... The awkward silence is definitely a date killer, lol.

    I would love to meet a girl that could talk about herself, not useless boring shit, but actually talk ABOUT herself (interests, hobbies, her views on whatever). I don't mind listening at all, and I would say that if she wants to talk to you that long, you definitly have something going.

    Unless she views you as a sister tho, or what if you're getting F-zoned.

    Sorry OP, got to throw the possiblities out there.

    A lunch date isnt even considered a date. A day date eliminates almost every chance of getting laid at the end.

    Make it an evening date if you want anything to happen.

    Hope your not in the friend zone yet.

    Lol, this thread is going exactly where I wanted it too

    Good responses thus far. I met her at the bar the week before, she punched me in the face twice. But we hit it off anyway ha.

    What the fuck is wrong with some women? Two this year so far who wanna ruin my good looks.



    See if anybody gets that pun.
