Suggesting something (other than going back to someone's place) after dinner is a solid indication that your date's asking for an encore.
Some may do this as a friendly gesture before making a quick exit, says Santos, but it can't be bad if your date is enthusiastic enough to suggest a second meet-up. A good sign that a date went *really* well, says Santos, is when someone giddily follows up after a date to let you know they had a great time without waiting around.(Personally, I really dislike the show, as I wrote on after the premier episode aired in September.)While the term "cougars" is relatively new, the concept has been around for many, many years.Throughout the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s, when I owned the dating service Lunch Dates, I received many inquiries from women in their 40s and 50s who asked to meet much younger men.When your date wants to spend time with you alone instead of calling in backup for a group date, says Santos, it likely means that he's comfortable around you and wants to spend more time getting to know you."One tactic to combat a boring date," he says, "is calling in 'reinforcement' friends" as social buffers.This doesn't necessarily mean I'm asking her out again. Being ghosted or receiving non-committal responses without concrete plans to set up another date is another sure sign of disinterest.And though men often feel pressured to make the first move, there's no harm in taking a feminist stance of reaching out first if you're really interested.When I first heard the radio ad for I thought it was a joke, a parody of other ads for online dating services. Yes, it is a dating service specifically for "older" women looking to meet and "date" younger men.So I won't get in trouble for using the word "older," here is the definition of the term from the Web site:"Cougars are Women in their PRIME: independent, sexy and wildly successful.When you start dating someone and haven't established exclusivity, says Santos, it's always important to measure signs that the other person is as on-board as you are.This could mean making regular conversation or establishing dates at a consistent frequency.
