It was one thing to chat with him on a dating app.
The conversations flowed fairly well and there seemed to be good chemistry.
Now that you are about to meet up with him on a first date, it gets trickier.
Although conversations on the dating app were smooth and easygoing, you are not sure about what to look for in terms of whether he likes you upon meeting in a real life setting.
While texting each other on the dating app, you didn’t have to think too hard about whether he liked you.
It just felt like he did.
However, a real life meet-up is a different story and you are worried about what signs to look for that shows that he is liking you in this environment as well.
You are already aware that online chemistry doesn’t automatically translate to real life chemistry.
This is correct.
Online chemistry with a guy you meet on a dating app doesn’t automatically translate to real life chemistry when you two meet in person.
You mustn’t let your nerves get the best of you.
Many people who are meeting in person for the first time, after a while of chatting on a dating app, make the mistake of clamping up on their first meet-up.
They get so nervous about the first meet-up, they struggle to be themselves.
When you exhibit contradictory behavior, it sends the message that you have not been sincere.
You leave the guy thinking that you were being someone you weren’t on the dating app.
This turns him off and you end up having an unfruitful first meet-up.
Remember to be the person you have presented yourself to be so far. Basically, be yourself.
Now, you know a guy likes you on a first meet-up when you observe that as the date has gone on, he has gotten physically closer and closer to you.
This is how he breaks the invisible physical space barrier that we as people have up.
He wants to get closer to you because he is feeling a connection to you.
On top of getting closer, he touches you often and lingers for a while before letting go.
Again, this is how he creates a stronger physical and emotional connection with you.
Touch is extremely effective in breaking physical and emotional barriers, allowing two people to feel relaxed with each other and connected.
In addition, he puts in a great deal of effort to make you laugh throughout the date.
Once he realizes that you are laughing at his jokes, he keeps telling them.
His entire goal is to show you a good time and entertain you.
In the midst of this, he is asking you a lot of follow-up questions as you two talk.
This means that he is paying attention to what you are saying and wants to learn more.
A guy that is hungry to learn more details about what you are talking about is intrigued by you, which means his interest for you has transcended superficiality and become much deeper.
