You may have kept yourself from speaking freely and spontaneously because you were really worried about saying something that would make you look bad or turn him off.

There may have been a lot of energy coming from his part at the beginning of the date.
He was excited to meet you and may have been open with showing this excitement.
However, as the date wore on, you may have noticed that his energy level drastically reduced.
This is often because a guy is beginning to lose interest.
A first date that went well typically builds in momentum as it wears on.
If your first date was decelerating in momentum, he was most likely becoming more and more despondent that you weren’t showing him the personality that he had experienced when he was corresponding with you on the dating website.
By the time you both got to the end of the date, he may have given you a brief stiff hug and left.
He may not have even texted you to find out whether you got home okay.
This is normally a sign that the first date went terribly.
From this point forward, understand that you will always have a better chance of having a successful first date when you are yourself.
Regardless of how nervous you may feel about the date, you still have to show your date that you are the same personality that they experienced on the dating website.
Throw caution to the wind and just be you.
