When your date wants to spend time with you alone instead of calling in backup for a group date, says Santos, it likely means that he's comfortable around you and wants to spend more time getting to know you.

"One tactic to combat a boring date," he says, "is calling in 'reinforcement' friends" as social buffers.

A common time to suggest another date is at the end of the first one.

Some may do this as a friendly gesture before making a quick exit, says Santos, but it can't be bad if your date is enthusiastic enough to suggest a second meet-up. A good sign that a date went *really* well, says Santos, is when someone giddily follows up after a date to let you know they had a great time without waiting around.

"If I enjoyed the date I'll contact her within a few days.Suggesting something (other than going back to someone's place) after dinner is a solid indication that your date's asking for an encore."A masochist like myself might ask a girl to spend more time with him if he's not enjoying her company," Santos says, but if they're willing to extend the date past the "easy out" first location of a bar or coffee shop, that's a good sign."Sometimes I get so excited during a first date I play my cards by suggesting other things we should do together," says Santos, though timing may not be that immediate.So let’s assume that I’m right and you like him and you’d like it if he wants you back.I would even bet that you’re probably hoping I write back that he does like you. At the heart of all of these games and guesses is doubt.
