Everyone lays a lot of weight on the first two dates that you have with a woman. Of course the first date is going to be the most awkward and the second one means that she obviously liked you enough to come back for more. But after that the subject just seems to drop. The stupid thing about that is that the third date is actually the most important one that you’ll end up going on. If you’re not convinced, then read on and have your mind changed.
It’s the Heaviest
“You know almost everything about each other”
You know when you’re with a person and the conversation starts to get into really serious subjects. That’s the heavy stage. Conversation that’s heavy revolves around death, exes, past dreams, and the like. On the third date you start delving into all of that. Especially the part about ex-boyfriends and ex-girlfriends. It won’t even come up by choice. You’ve already had all of the light-hearted conversations about what you do for a living and her favorite color. When you’re starting to become serial daters you have no other path to go on.
It’s the Most Meaningful
At this point in the game you know that you like each other enough to keep going on, but you’re not all that well acquainted with each other. On the third date you really settle into a routine with her. She knows small things about you like the type of clothes that you wear and you’ve gotten a pretty good grip on her flirting technique. So now you start to really get to know each other’s movements and mannerisms. This determines if you actually want to take the next step and move onto a fourth date. The fourth date means that you’re really in this for more than just a booty call. Speaking of…
Something Physical is Going to Happen
“Go for it!”
Everyone knows that the third date is when society expects you to get lucky in some way. Maybe you’ll end up getting a kiss from her, or maybe she really likes you and lays a blowie down. Whatever it is, the common expectation of the third date is to take things a step further by making them physical. If she’s willing to go out with you on said third date, then she is at least somewhat down for getting physically close to you.
Finally, the third date is so important because you know that you’re successful. If this was a job interview, you’d have nailed it and would be looking at your new office. With this awesome feeling you’re going to let your wall down more and really show what your real desire is with this woman. Feel free to flirt more than you did the first two times (while still holding onto some class) and really let her see who you really are. If you don’t take the chance to do that now she might get a skewed idea of who you are. There’s no need to be as perfect as you were on the first two dates, now is the time to be yourself.
