“By the way, I think i learned the single best predictor of how a date goes, especially early on in the relationship.”
I leaned forward. “Oh yea?”
He cleared his throat. “When you are dropping a girl off, take note of how long she lingers in the car. Does she stop for a little while, thanking you, not wanting to leave the car? Or does she jump out quickly?”
“Hmmm,” I scratched my chin.
“That,” he declared, “is the key indicator.”
“Interesting. So when Amy hesitated in my car, like she wasn’t sure what she was supposed to do…”
“She was probably interested in you,” he nodded. “Too bad for her, it wasn’t the other way around.”
I shrugged. “And another girl jumped out right away. I never heard from her again. That seems to follow your theory too.”
“Yup. And this comes from my sample of tons of dates from the last few months.”
I looked out the window. Various dates went through my head. I nodded and scratched my chin.
“It actually happened to me last night too, on a date. It was like she could not get out of the car fast enough. I’m sure I won’t hear from her again.”
“Hmmm. I think you’re right. This seems to have applied to all the past dates I can remember.”
“Also, the pressure of the kiss or the invitation to come upstairs is a fun. Girls who are interested enjoy that nervous tension. For those who are not, it’s uncomfortable and unbearable.”
“Interesting indicator, man.”
He nodded. “You’re going to blog this, aren’t you?”
I nodded back.
So what do you think? Is this a good indicator? How can you tell if your date likes you?
