Definitely if you liked him well enough go for the second date.<quoted text>
Teehee, he was awkward. Very socially awkward, like almost Sheldon Cooper awkward. Not that bad or smart. He seemed sooo nervous and insecure, which is not very attractive in a 38 y/o man.
Will give him another shot--unless something is glaring, a 2nd date helps figure stuff out...
Lots of people are really nervous on a first date.*I* am, I'm just good at hiding it. All those years working in the salon made me need to be "social" even though it was all an act. I just liked making money, so I learned how to pretend. Not everyone can really do that, so they act how they're feeling.
Of course if he isn't at least a *little* more relaxed after the second date, you might want to think about whether you want to spend time on a third... Not really my business or anything, just being nosey and bossy.:D
