"Yeah the when to call again can be a challenge. I think it more goes by how the date went.
And how she was responding to you.
Very into you, I'd call two days later, not the next day.
But that's just my opinion, you won't seem…"
"Well first off, being a gentleman comes first.
Open doors, pull out her chair if you're dining, things like that.
-On the actual day
Be on time, clean shaven, dressed clean and proper for the location of the date. Like if you're going to…"
"You make plans; it's annoying for her if you say, "I dunno. What do you want to do?" You do the work.
There's an issue of how much you want to say, which on the first date is not too much. It can be as…"
"Perhaps this is a case of the Nice Guy Syndrome (see Dr Robert Glover podcast on this site or alternatively see Glover's book, No More Mr. Nice Guy). I recently read the book and it discusses men who are emotionally needy on their partner.

"Next time you have a sit down with her, wear a Buffs tshirt. You're making too big a deal about it. Although for future reference, talking smack about a superior's sports team, especially on a first meeting, is a bad idea."
"Counselors have a huge impact? Like most of us here, I went through high school. I would have called the impact "too small to notice."
It sounds like you aren't sure where to stop with joking. If so, you can always…"
"Yeah. I had a better pic of him entering the rally, but I can't find it now. Here's the key note speaker at the white supremacist rally in Boston the 40,000 peaceloving people showed up to protest.
Let's say you're a freshman in high school. On your first day, you meet up with your counselor for the first time with some other kids with the same counselor. You do some ice breakers and you learn a little bit about each other.
