Dating going slowly
And while we can't implant a chip into people's heads that lets us read their minds just yet, we So, you've gone on a couple of good dates with someone, and all of a sudden the momentum stalls.They keep texting you or Facebook messaging you, but there's no talk of planning a third date.They give you just enough crumbs of conversation or flirtation to keep you interested, without crossing any boundaries they couldn't justify if their current partner found out.Just remember, if someone will do this to their current partner with you, they'd just as soon do it to you with someone else.When it comes to online dating, usually if momentum is lost, it is quite hard to regain. Nothing good ever comes to us easily, so put some effort into your dating life!Anyone who's been single in the last few years knows that the singles scene has become a much more complicated place than it was in days of yore.The chemistry we feel on a first date needs to be maintained with a second date, third date, fourth date and fifth date in close succession.
The first several dates should be spaced close together in an effort to keep the momentum going.

But because they need a significant other at all times, they'll keep you on the hook until their current relationship goes south—to cushion the blow of that breakup.
If we are fortunate enough to be able to pick right back up where we left off, that’s great – and it’s awesome if you are able to rekindle that chemistry – but you are making it much more difficult for yourself if you slow the momentum down.
