No fireworks on a first date doesn’t mean that attraction can’t develop over time. It is impossible to know someone well enough in just a few hours. While chemistry is important, feeling love (or lust) at first sight isn’t a realistic gauge of a relationship’s success, Not feeling those love-dovey sparks on the very first date shouldn’t be a total deal breaker.
Fireworks on a first date is like a sparkler. You light it. It is bright, pretty and exciting while it lasts, but the intensity is over before you know it.
The basis of a lasting, satisfying relationship is a solid friendship and common values. This takes time to discover. It is better to let a relationship to evolve naturally without expectations. As that foundation is strengthened, the fireworks you seek won’t be far behind. And this time it will last a lot longer than a sparkler!
You never know what the second date will bring, because as nice as it is to feel those sparks right away, they aren’t always necessarily proof of compatibility.
