Signs of a winning date

You might think it’s obvious when sparks are starting to fly with your latest date. But a successful date doesn’t always mean you end up in the sack. So, how do you know when things are going well?

Take action:

If she instantly remembers you when you call to set up a date, you're on the right track; if she's on time, it means that the evening is important to her; if she has obviously taken trouble over her appearance, it’s because she wants to make a good impression – good signs are a new hairdo and a new outfit; if she says nice things about the restaurant, it means you share preferences for certain things – this is a good sign; and if she looks you in the eye, then looks down and looks up again, you can start getting your hopes up – this is international flirting language.
