9 Ways to Secure a Second Date When the First Date Didn’t Go So Well

Many guys get too nervous to talk when they go on a date with someone they’re really into. This time around, we surveyed Japanese women in their teens to 30s in order to introduce ways to secure a second date when the first date didn’t go so well.

1. Be honest about how you felt: “I was nervous, but I had fun.”

Japanese women are impressed when guys are honest about how they feel, instead of coming up with silly excuses. “The fact that he’s honest makes him seem sweet and pure,” commented a Japanese woman in her 20s. You could even elaborate on the reason why you felt nervous, such as “The things you do are so adorable, you really made my heart beat faster.”
