She goes on to explain that we are simply not at our best when we’re crazy about someone.

We become insecure and weak and needy and yes, somewhat crazy, in the presence of chemistry. And the reason that the quiet person at work has a crush on you is specifically because you’re being YOURSELF around him/her. Should we all act normal when we’re infatuated with someone? But as long as we’re human, we’re going to be judgmental, and lusty, and myopic. It’s one thing to understand the role of chemistry in dating.

This is a logical conclusion, except for one thing: you’re not going out with any men.

Despite your very mature view about how one date is only a glimpse of the whole person, what your question misses is a broader perspective on “how women are.” Instead, it’s only reflected through your views, your experiences, and your eyes.

You go out with a bunch of women, they tell you that they didn’t feel the “click” or the “chemistry,” and you determine that women are looking for magic on the first date.

(As always, I’m generalizing here, so cut me some slack).

As for men, our needs are a little simpler when we determine if we want a second date.

Or, on the other hand, are women generally more rational about this than the impression of them that I have?

Dear Roger, First of all, thanks for writing such a thoughtful and articulate question.

As I see it, there are only two main criteria: 1) Did I have fun with her? As to how she dresses or whether she’s late or talks with her mouth full…yeah, we notice, but we’ll pretty much forgive such things if she’s both cool and sexy.

SO……You’re spot on when you recognize that first-date sparks don’t portend a future relationship.

I mean, a first date is not the real world, it’s not the way people usually are most of the time.

If nothing else, both parties are usually a bit nervous and on their best behavior, so you don’t get to know the real them.

Which means that they are more likely to conclude within five seconds of meeting a woman that there is not going to be a second date.
