When you are setting up a date with somebody, you may not realize how much those plans can actually mean. Though you may not necessarily be in tune with this, the night that they pick to see you can speak volumes about their intentions. If you are setting up the date, then you want to be mindful of this. If they are setting up the date, then stay tuned into this for it can tell you everything you need to know. The day of the week that the date occurs can really dictate if things will go well, and may tell you exactly where the interest lies in things—so learn what these cues really mean in the big picture!
As you are talking to one another and really getting to know each other, you want to consider how the conversation goes. See how open they are to getting to know you and be sure that you are doing the same on your end. This can be a wonderful first meeting and encounter, or it may fall flat if you don’t approach it in the right manner. You also want to be mindful of the fact the setting for the first date can mean everything—and that very much includes the place that you meet and the time of the week that it all occurs!
If you never really gave this much thought then there’s no time like the present to learn. Here we look at a breakdown by day to indicate what each day of the week may mean. This can help to give you some insight and ensure that you are ready to take on the date in the right way, and ultimately ensure that you make the most out of the time that you do have together even if it’s not the most ideal night overall.
Monday: They are really interested in you and want to get to know you. If they are setting up a date with you on this first day of the week, then they want to start their week off with a bang. Be sure that you embrace this as an opportunity and don’t look at it as a pure annoyance, for it means that you have to prepare for this first weeknight. This means that they see something they like in you, and therefore they want to start off their week on a positive note.
Tuesday: It can go either way, it’s a night to set a date mostly because there is nothing else going on really. This may be the night that they use out of convenience because they really have nothing better going on. It doesn’t necessarily mean that all hope is lost, but you do have to be aware that this may not be the greatest sign in the world. Try to make the most out of the time and know that it’s not necessarily a bad stigma like other nights, but rather more of a laid back approach.
Wednesday: Great night for a date and gives you both something to look forward to. This is to say that they want to break up their week with you. They have made it through the difficult beginning to the week, and they had this date to keep them going. There is no pressure as it’s a weeknight smack dab in the midst of things, but there is a great opportunity. Go in ready for a nice evening and a great way of getting to know each other.
Thursday: Gearing up for the weekend, look at a date with you as a positive thing. Great way to get into a good mood for the weekend ahead for both of you! The work week isn’t quite done, but you are so close, and therefore you are both likely in good moods. There is usually much more going on, so it could lend itself to a really fun evening. Look at this as a positive and ensure that above all, you go in ready to spend some good time chatting and enjoying each other’s company.
Friday: By far one of the best nights of the week for a date because it means that you are kicking off the weekend together. You are both likely in a good mood because the work week is done, and now you can have some fun together. You can have a great time together and the weekend is still ahead of you—and in some instances, that may mean other opportunities to see each other! This is a really great sign and a perfect setting for the all-important first date.
Saturday: This is a good sign if they are setting aside this night for you. This is the one big night that they have and they want to spend it with you. It can lead to a longer evening, so there may be some pressure associated with that. Just know though that this can be a great sign of things to come because they are clearing all plans just to be with you. Prime time for a good date night and it speaks volumes, so embrace it!
Sunday: The worst night for a date by far for a variety of reasons. First of all this says that they had better plans with other people over the weekend and that this is their only available option. This also cuts into time where you might relax or prepare for the week ahead. This may have good intentions, such as a brunch date, but it may also be a filler when there is no other time available. This is a hard night for a date because you are likely focused on the busy week ahead, and now you have a date to cloud that vision.
