On the other hand, if you have received something that seems like a generic message probably sent out to dozens of others, then this isn’t quite so promising.Similarly, if it was you who initiated contact, then it’s the nature of his response that should provide you with some clue as to his level of interest.
Everyone knows the anxiety of the early relationship.
And even more to the point, how do you know he's going to stay that way? Of course, no one wants (or should date) a wet blanket, but too many women seem to feel that if a guy is really enthusiastic about being with them then he's probably a loser or not deserving.
Once you have arranged to meet someone, you are now in a situation where you have more information at your disposal to determine whether or not he likes you.
There are a few signals you can look for at a first date to get an idea of whether this will be the first and last date, or the first of many.
If he really seems interested, then it’s probably best not to second guess the situation; you should just assume he is being genuine and go with the flow.
However, it isn’t an entirely uncommon situation that the first date goes really well, but things cool down a little bit after that.
If he seems content taking it slowly and gradually getting to know each other, then it’s likely that he is also looking for a long term relationship.
On the other hand, if all his messages are brief and yet he seems very keen to meet up, it might be reasonable to assume he has something else in mind.
When you are engaged in communication with someone on an online dating website then one of two things will have happened, either you’ll have approached a man whose profile caught your eye and he has responded, or you have been contacted by a man expressing an interest in you.
