Would You Reject, Accept, or Ignore a Second Date?
The Second Poll
We were interested to know what the different genders would react if that’s the case. As such, we created similar questions for both males and females, to know the difference that would cause, if there are any (no assumptions made here!). Here are the questions:
If I’m not interested in a girl, who hinted her interest with me, after going on a first date with her, I will:
Be upfront with her. There is no need to beat around the bush.
– Pretend to be interested, and go on a second date. Sometimes first impressions can be wrong right..?
– Ignore. Ignorance is bliss.
If I’m not interested in a guy, who asked me out on a second date with him, I will:
– Be upfront with him. I don’t want to hurt his feelings.
– Pretend to be interested, and agree to go on a second date with him. Who knows, spark may fly for the second date!
– “Hi, may I ask you out on a second date?” Ignore.
Who knows what kind of interesting results we would get? Let’s delve in.
I’m certainly intrigued by the results. Guess what, a whooping 64.5% of the guys chose to pretend to be interested and would ask the girl out for a second date. I guess we guys can be really indecisive. A modest 25.0% of the guys chose to be upfront with the girl (Bravery, indeed. Salute!). 10.5% of the guys chose to ignore and pretend nothing happened.
However, that doesn’t mean that girls are making the correct choice of rejecting upfront though. Based on a survey done by eHarmony, 75% of the females responded that their marriage partner was not someone that they fell ‘in love at the first sight’.
To Sum It Up
Differences aside, we can all draw similar conclusions: chances should be given to each other, instead of being overly critical of a person based on the first impression. Let’s all give each other chances, shall we?
