Have you ever been on a first date where you are physically attracted to each other but nothing seems to be happening? Have you felt the energy shift from a possible romantic connection to the friend zone? Maybe it left you scratching your head wondering "what went wrong?"
A First Date Story
This recently happened to me on the Fourth of July. I had met someone at an event, we had a lovely connection, and decided to go on a first date. The date seemed to be going well with a hike, dinner, great conversation, and cuddling up while viewing the fireworks in the July San Francisco winter weather.
But when we got back to my house the energy shifted. We were sipping wine on my couch, eating dark chocolate and looking at his match.com profile and the women who had contacted him. Not exactly moving towards a romantic moment!
The longer we were hanging out and chilling with each other, the more I was thinking, "Gee, I'd really like to kiss him, but I'm not going to make the first move." Apparently, he was thinking the same thing. We were at a standstill..
