Is He Worthy of a Second Date?

06/04/2015 05:18 pm ET | Updated Jun 04, 2016

Second dates are pretty major. And afterwards you'll have to decide whether or not this guy is worthy of a third date, after which you'll pretty much officially be dating (holy crap). Well, relax. If you listen to your gut, you should already have a pretty good idea about whether or not a second date is in the stars. However, there are times when it's not totally clear. Just remember that whatever decision you ultimately make, it was the right decision simply because you made it. If you still want help, here is a fun quiz that will make the decision to ditch him or date him clearer than daylight. Start on neutral ground with zero points and see where you end up.

Second Date Decision - The Quiz

Question 1:
At any point during the first date, did it feel like the world stopped and it was just the two of you in a little romantic bubble?
If yes - Add 15 points

Question 2:
Was there anything inherently creepy about him, like the sound of his voice or some of the questions he asked you? Or did he do something super weird like read you a children's book that he had stored in the glove compartment of his Honda?
If yes - Subtract 20 points

Question 3:
Did you ever find yourself staring at his lips hoping that he'd kiss you, or did you really like the way he smelled?
If yes - Add 10 points

Question 4:
Was it awkward? Were there at least two painfully awkward silences and were you constantly searching for something to say?
If yes - Subtract 5 points

Question 5:
Did he make you laugh in any way, whether it was with his sexy charm, an actual sense of humor or goofy jokes?
If yes - Add 9 points

Question 6:
Were you abnormally drawn to your phone and did everything he say make you wish you were at home watching a Game of Thrones marathon?
If yes - Subtract 5 points

Question 7:
Did you feel relaxed and at ease after the first few minutes of the date? Even if there weren't super fireworks, did he make you feel calm and safe and content?
If yes - Add 10 points

Question 8:
Did he have a wandering eye, send text messages under the table, or make you feel like he would have rather been scooping up dog poop than having coffee with you?
If yes - Subtract 5 points

Question 9:
Did you find out on the first date that you have more friends in common than you thought or discover that you have other random stuff in common, like you both drink black coffee and put way too much parmesan cheese on everything?
If yes - Add 10 points

Question 10:
Did he give you backhanded compliments like, "I would tell you how pretty you are, but you probably hear that all the time," or did he insult you in any way, even if it was just rolling his eyes at something you said?
If yes - Subtract 10 points

Question 11:
Was it nice that you didn't have to think too hard about what to say? Were you able to chat about things in a way that felt natural?
If yes - Add 10 points

Question 12:
Did he reach over the table and grab your nose and say, "Got your nose!" or did he try to feel you up while you were watching a serious film?
If yes - Subtract 12 points

Question 13:
Did time go by really quickly on your date? Did you suddenly look around and realize that you'd closed down the restaurant or glance at your watch and discover that you'd been chatting for four hours?
If yes - Add 15 points

Question 14:
Honestly, are you totally not attracted to this guy for no good reason whatsoever? Would you rather make out with your brother than grab his ass?
If yes - Subtract 10 points

Question 15:
Did your stomach flip over at least once at some point on your first date?
If yes - Add 15 points

Once you add up all of your points, if you have any points whatsoever, you should definitely go on a second date with this guy. This means that even if things weren't perfect and fireworks didn't go off and blow up the bar, he either made you laugh or made you comfortable and there was at least a shred of chemistry or at least compatibility. We think that these things totally warrant a second date! You have nothing to lose except maybe an hour or two of your time, and you'll have much more information about this dude after just one more date, so do it! This guy could be the dream man that you built, or your next long-ass relationship that breaks your heart or he could end up just be a big bad boy test from the universe. But you'll never know unless you give him a second chance. So, if this dude scored some points with you, go out with him again, pay attention to your intuition, and at least give him a shot to score some more.

We realize that this quiz is very forgiving, and we did that for a reason. So if you took the quiz and you had something like negative 25 points, please do not waste any more of your heyday on this loser. Sorry, we don't mean to call people names; we're just saying that if he lost that many points when he was trying to make a good impression, then he's a loser. And sorry, but we don't care how cute he is -- you can't date a loser. He won't make you feel good, and if the first date went that poorly, it's not going to get any better. Don't give it another thought. Just store him in your bad date memory bank and laugh about it with your girlfriends. Don't waste your time getting down on yourself about it or down on men. Just keep sending out all of your positive, good vibrations while you go prowling for your next date.
