There are rather famous lines in the movie Forrest Gump: Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get. This rule applies to dating too, especially the first one. However, you may be lucky enough to meet someone who is attracted to you and you spend a quite pleasant time together. So you may be rather eager to get a second date. This is when communication skills matters. Witty and warm texts make you charming; inappropriate messages never get you a second date. How to send follow-up messages after a first date? Here are some tips for you.

Avoid Texting Boring Greetings like "Good Night" or “Good Morning”

It's best not to text "Good Night" or “Good Morning” to the person you've dated for the first time, though you may think it to be polite to do so. Such messages show you're already on familiar terms, but the truth is that you've only gone on a date once and are still not that close to each other. It will also show that you have nothing else to say but only send boring greetings. Such behaviors are red flags at this stage of dating. Hence, if nothing interesting comes up to you, don't text your crush.

Send Interesting Texts

If you are considerate enough, you may show your date a picture. This may make your chat more interesting. You may share some of your most-watched movies and your comments on these films. You can tell your date you see a lovely cat in front of your house or share some of your favorite movies. Sharing a daily routine implies that you are willing to let him or her be involved in your life. It is also an easy way to find topics to talk about and create a probability for another date. Of course, if nothing interesting comes up to you, you’d better not bother your date.

Try to Present Your Best Self 

To make a good impression on your date, you need to show your positive side as much as possible and try to present your best self. In the follow-up interactions, don't complain too much about your job or your annoying neighbors. You are supposed to be energetic, enthusiastic, and as fresh as a daisy.

Never Text Anything Sexual after a First Date

Sending sexual texts after a first date should be avoided, no matter how close you feel you are. Such texts may offend your date, and your date might despise you for doing that and refuse to meet you again.
