5 SIGNS YOUR DATE THINKS YOU’RE THE BEE’S KNEES
September 09, 2019
We’ve all been there – sitting in a restaurant in our trusty first-date outfit, sweating bullets as we wait for the hunky guy to make his appearance. First dates can be torture, especially if you’re not sure whether your partner for the evening is even remotely interested in you.
To ease the burden a bit, we’ve rounded up five frequently cited signs that your date thinks you’re pretty swell. Here goes!
THE GENUINE SMILE
No matter how long it’s been since you’ve been out and about, you’ll still be able to recognise a genuine smile. You know, the kind that goes all the way to the eyes. A giddy, unsolicited smile is a sure sign that your date is taken with you. Bonus points if you can trigger a blush!
THE BIG TEASE
If your date is comfortable enough to pull your leg a bit, you can rest assured that they’re having a great time. You don’t really tease someone you feel uncomfortable with.
THE BREAK OF THE TOUCH BARRIER
A casual touch on the shoulder? A hand on the small of your back as they usher you through the door? You’re in it to win it!
THE BUMBLING EXCITEMENT
Did he get stupidly excited when he realised you both enjoy John Grisham novels or that you also have a yen for spicy Mexican food? There’s only one reason why he’d be that amped to realise you have shared interests – he’s looking forward to sharing them with you in future.
THE OBVIOUS LINGER
Did he order dessert, then coffee, then an aperitif, and still stuck around to chat some more after the bill was settled? He’s probably working up the nerve to schedule that next date. Enjoy!

I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
