Q: IF I DON’T FEEL SPARKS ON OUR FIRST DATE, SHOULD I GIVE IT TIME AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS, OR SETTLE FOR JUST BEING FRIENDS?
A: When it comes to relationships, and especially men, I always trust my gut. You know that little voice inside your head demanding your attention? That is your intuition, and you should give it a listen and react appropriately. We all anticipate a rst kiss; that quiver of excitement that pulses through your body when you first lock lips with a prospective partner, and if that excitement is missing, you should stop for a second and gure out why. It could be that there just aren’t any butterflies to be found – and that’s OK. The great thing about rst dates is that it doesn’t always have to be followed by a second – and you can have as many as you like before nding that true spark. Don’t force it and let yourself move on to the next one. But before you write him off after a single spark-free date, see if he has other attractive qualities. Does he make you laugh? Is the conversation stimulating and interesting? Decide whether these other factors are worth pursuing – you may build a better connection with him if you give it a chance. First impressions may not always be explosive, but they could lead to something wonderful.
