Signs You Get Carried Away After A Good First Date

How bad can it really be to get carried away after a first date? It’s not like your date actually knows all of the things going on in your head (or all of the things you’re telling your friends), right? Well, yes, but your thoughts and words can affect you, too.

(function(d, s, id) {
if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
var js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
js.src = ‘//cdn4.wibbitz.com/static.js’;
d.getElementsByTagName(‘body’)[0].appendChild(js);
}(document, ‘script’, ‘wibbitz-static-embed’));

If you let yourself go down a certain train of thought, or talk too much about a guy, you can set up expectations for yourself subconsciously. You’ll probably stop considering other guys much, and possibly pass up on a great one! All for what? A guy you’ve been on one date with? Statistically speaking, most first dates don’t turn into relationships; it’s a numbers game, and if you cut back on your first date numbers because one went well, you will probably lose the game. Here are signs you get too carried away after a good first date.

You cancel other dates

You cancel your online dating subscriptions

You know that means you lose the six-month coupon you were using, and that all the guys in your inbox might be taken by the time you come back. But you don’t think it matters since you’ve found your dream guy.

You go back on birth control

You presume this will become a full-blown relationship so you should probably just get back on birth control already.

You talk about it too much

A first date deserves about fifteen minutes of talk—not two hours. You shouldn’t dominate drinks with your girlfriends, with a conversation about your first date. They have things they want to talk about, too.

You tell your landlord you may be leaving

Your lease is up in six months, and you tell your landlord you may not renew it since you have a hunch you may be moving in with somebody.

You talk about how good it is not to date anymore

You say things like, “I’m so glad I don’t need to deal with the dating pool anymore” or “Gosh I remember how rough it could be out there.” As if you’ve been with this guy for years.

You try to tell an ex, or some friend who you know has it out for you, that you’re “Seeing someone now, so you don’t need their pity.”

You won’t stop thinking about him

It’s interfering with your work, your friendships, your family and more. You’re extremely distracted—you can’t focus on anything else but this first date. That is getting carried away.
