Signs he really likes you on the first date

First dates, especially those with people you meet on a dating app, are meant to be casual and fun. Occasionally, you may click with a man on the first date and wonder if he really likes you enough to ask you out again. 

This can be tricky. Some men can be perfect gentlemen and show you a great time, but never ask you out again.

These signs may help you know if he really likes you and wants to date you again: 

His body language

A guy who really likes you will maintain eye contact while talking with you. He will flirt, lean towards you, or find ways to be close enough to touch you.

He may smile, laugh or blush a lot. He may stare deeply into your eyes and even start to unconsciously mimic your behavior.

The conversation

A guy who just wants the date to be over has no time to get chummy with you. You’d be lucky if he doesn’t have to leave if “something urgent” came up.

If he really likes you, he will want to get to know you. He will ask personal questions. He may even flirt, tease, and will listen to you intently. 

He lets it linger

When he's into you on the first date, he won't want your time together to end. He'll find ways to “stretch” the date, such as continuing the conversation after the bill is paid and the table is cleared away.

He may ask if you want to go somewhere else afterwards, such as to a club to enjoy some nightlife. When it’s time to say goodbye, he'll linger for a hug or kiss.

He asks about future plans

Before the date ends, your guy may tell you he wants to see you again. If he's not so bold, he may ask if you have plans for the coming weekend. Or, even before the date is over, he may mention the two of you together at a place or event in the future.

If your man isn't into you, get back on the Byber app to keep on dating!

4 ways to turn casual dating into a romantic relationship

Causal dating happens all the time, especially between people who meet on a dating app such as Byber app. Casual dating can be fun because the partners are free to flirt, date or sleep with others. 

Whenever feelings get involved and a partner becomes emotionally attached, he or she may decide they want a relationship instead. 

Here are four ways you can turn your casual dating into a romantic relationship even if you met on

Be irresistible!

Irresistible people are hard to avoid, and that’s a no-brainer. It may be your behavior, speech or mannerisms that create such an undeniable attraction. Being physically attractive, financially and emotionally independent, fun, and friendly may make you even more alluring. The next thing your partner will be suggesting is an update to relationship status. 

Talk about it

Have a lighthearted talk with your partner to see if there is a mutual interest in exploring a relationship. If you have been dating for months, then the time may be right. 

Be as open and honest as you can about the type of relationship you want. You may uncover that your partner has commitment issues or is generally not ready for a relationship. If the odds are in your favor, you may both realize you are ready to take things to the next stage! 

Show your feelings

People are sometimes afraid to show their feelings to avoid rejection or getting hurt. So, they keep things casual. But, if they know the other person has feelings of affection for them, this may break down their proverbial walls.

If you are emotionally into your partner, admit your feelings and then show them. This can transform your casual dating into a relationship commitment. 

Show commitment

“Commitment” and “relationships” go together like bees and honey. Signs of commitment may make the other person feel secure. Start by agreeing to dates and following through. Be more available to spend quality time together. Regular communication, through texts, calls or email, is also a great way to say, “I’m in this long-term.”

Whatever you do, be respectful and avoid making your partner feel pressured to commit. After all, dating and relationships should happen naturally and be fun!

Whether you are looking to for casual dates or the actual real thing, sign-up to Byber now - your dream match could be just a few clicks away.

How a dating app can help you meet friends in your new city

Most people don't consider using a dating app for anything other than its intended purpose, but they can also be advantageous in finding new friends. This is especially true if you're moving to a new city or going on vacation. You may want to meet up with locals who can show you around. Taking a few steps in advance can help you do that safely and easily.

Change your location

Once you set up your dating app profile, you'll want to change your location to the city of your destination. People won't usually look at profiles from outside their area. You'll have much more success if people think you're already in the area.

Listen to your instincts

A note about safety here. While most people use dating services because they genuinely want to connect, there are those who use them for less reputable reasons. Listen to what your conscience is telling you, before you agree to meet someone. If you think something is off, you're probably right. 

Set your boundaries early

Whether on vacation or making a permanent move, you will want to be upfront about your intentions. Crushed feelings and resentment can result if someone agrees to meet you expecting more than you're really willing to give. Once you determine that you're going to meet in person, make a point to let him or her know you're only looking for friendship. If that's unacceptable, they can cancel without feeling used.

Start looking early

Don't wait until the last minute to start swiping right on profiles. Remember, most people are looking for love or something more casual, even if you're not. That means it may take you some time to find people willing to go to the friend zone with you. Also, connecting early will give you more time to become acquainted with your new friends. Some online chatting will give you an opportunity to feel them out and make sure they are who they claim to be.

Using a dating app to find platonic friends can be a challenge, but it can be done and it can be the best way to meet people in a strange city. A little perseverance may be necessary, but it will pay off and you may develop a long-lasting relationship as a reward. Be safe, be honest, and be yourself.

Have you considered lunch for that first date?

If you've met someone with the BYBER app, you're probably eager to meet up and agree on a time and place for a date. However, all of that comes with some anxiety for both parties. Some people get so nervous about asking someone they've met on a dating app out for a dinner date that they put it off or ask too late in the week when the other person is already booked for the weekend. What's the perfect solution? Make the first date a lunch date.

Casual, no-pressure atmosphere

Dating always comes with some nerves, but often that nervous energy is more pronounced during a quiet dinner date. Everything from your outfit to your manners to your choice of dinner is on display, and the conversation may falter due to nerves. If this has ever happened to you, having a nice lunch together is a great way to take the pressure off. Restaurants aren't as quiet at lunch time, and people tend to dress more casually. And, because it's early in the day, you can schedule other things to do together that day if the lunch goes well. 

If you aren't into bars, a restaurant lunch provides plenty of small meals without the bar scene that many restaurants take on at night. And, even an appetizer is enough for a lunch meal portion. If you have a tight budget, buying yourself and your date lunch will cost far less than buying full dinners. 

Break the ice

If you've been messaging a match you found on the BYBER app, talking about having a casual lunch date soon can break the ice when you want to ask for a date. It's an easy way to get to know each other and to see if more dates are something you both want. If the date goes well, spending time amongst your city's nightlife many not be far behind. If there are several people you want to get to know before you choose one to date full time, having lunch dates makes sense for getting to know them in a casual, no-pressure way that won't break your monthly budget.

Dating apps vs. meeting in bars

Do happy couples and lifelong friends first meet in bars? Of course; it happens all the time. However, for every one chance meeting at a bar that starts a great relationship, there are often plenty that we'd rather not have. Sometimes, it's a disaster from the first impression, and others, you can spend the whole evening getting to know someone and thinking it's going well, only to realize later that you're not compatible at all.

Breaking the ice

Dating apps can't do the work for you when it comes to getting to know someone; nothing will ever replace real interaction. However, they can go a long way when it comes to finding people who you're likely to get along with. By the time they meet, users will already have shared a few interests and know basic background information about one another, which can make it much easier to "break the ice" and then sustain a conversation.

Wide range of choices

Dating apps also offer users access to a much larger pool of potential partners than they could ever meet in person. This is a major advantage, whether you live in a less-populated rural area or a bustling city; in either case, you'd still probably never get to meet someone special who lives just one town over. In the way that not everyone goes to bars, not everyone uses dating websites or apps either, but in any given area you're sure to see more people online than at a tavern, you can quickly differentiate between ones you do or don't like.

Peaceful surroundings

Bars also sometimes present issues that can be easily avoided by meeting through an app. With a dating app, you can get to know each other through messaging without the annoyances of loud music, rowdy crowds or worrying about making it home safely. If you both like bars, then that could make for a great date, but you'll be glad you can enjoy a night out without juggling the often awkward "getting to know you" ritual.

Use Byber

Whether you're looking for love or just connecting with friends, apps like < can help you skip the craziness at bars and simply communicate and give you a head start in getting to know your potential life partner.

Telltale signs a man has lost interest in you

There are some telltale signs that the man you are dating has lost interest in you. Some of them may even be staring you straight in the face. Here are some clues that his change of behavior may mean he has lost interest. 

He communicates less

They say communication is key to building a strong relationship. From the time you start dating someone, you can tell their level of interest based on how frequently they communicate with you. Whether it is text messaging, calling, or emailing, a man who is interested in you will find a way to stay in constant contact. 

Most likely, he does this daily. This is his way of letting you know he is thinking about you. Once he slows down on reaching out daily or starts skipping days, he most likely wants out. 

He stops planning dates

A man who is interested in you will want to see you every chance he gets. At first, things can be exciting, and dates may happen at least once or twice a week. In fact, on Mondays, he is already making plans to see you on the weekend. He is making sure he is on your schedule! 

Once you notice your man no longer plan dates or you have to make the effort to coerce him into going out or spending time with you, the writing may be on the wall! 

He makes excuses

From having to run an errand, to working on the weekends, or needing to attend a function that you are, obviously, not invited to - the excuses keep coming. Let’s call them “reasons” why he is too “busy” to spend time with you. 

Of course, we all have a life outside of dating but being forever booked all of a sudden is a telltale sign that your man wants you gone! People make time for the people that are important to them, even if there is a small window of opportunity to be in their presence. 

There may be other ways to tell if your man has lost interest in dating you. Just pay close attention and you won’t be able to miss them! If you find yourself on the receiving end of this treatment, don't put up with it. Get on Byber the new dating app and start meeting men who want to spend time with you.

How to have great conversation on a first date

First dates can be nerve-wracking. There are usually high expectations set by both parties, and tensions can be high. While it’s true you can be very attracted to someone and have amazing chemistry, it’s also important to maintain an interesting and flowing conversation. In fact, what you talk about on a first date can either make or break your chances of getting that coveted second date.

So, what are some great ways to maintain a smooth and flowing conversation on a first date? Let us help:

It’s ok to be nervous - and admit it

If there’s one thing that’s typically true on a first date, it’s that both parties will probably be pretty nervous. If you come out and admit this to your date, it could be an excellent icebreaker to kick off the date. It can also help take some of the pressure off both of you, and it will also show you as an open and honest person.

Ask a lot of questions

Great conversations should be an easy flow between the two of you. If one person isn’t asking questions or is only talking about themselves, this can be a complete show stopper. If you’re someone who can be a little shy, or unsure of what to ask, revisit what you know already about the person and think of some questions ahead of time.

Don’t spill too many beans

This is a first date, not a therapy appointment. While it’s important to be yourself and be honest, airing your intimate dirty laundry might be too much too soon. Each party revealing a little bit about each other over time is a much better way to build intimacy at a healthy pace.

No politics

Politics can be one of those topics that people are passionate about and hold very near and dear to their hearts. When it comes to long-term relationship potential, knowing your date’s political beliefs can be a real benefit. For the sake of being judgmental or overly emotional on a first date, save the political talk until you’ve gotten to know each other a little bit better.

Don’t be negative - especially about yourself

You’re awesome, and your date probably wouldn’t have agreed to go out with you if they didn’t think that to be true. We all have flaws, but there’s no need to feature them in conversation on your first date. Tone down the self-deprecation and keep everything positive.

Sometimes the first date doesn’t turn into a second one, and that’s ok because there’s many fish in the sea. If you maintain a great conversation, however, you’ll not only have a great time but it can quickly turn into a second. If you’re looking for a dating app that will help you get the first date and meet the person of your dreams, try BYBER.

Choosing the right nightlife for date night

Whether it's your first date or you've been together for decades, it's always important to choose the right spot for date night. It can be tricky to find places that encourage conversation, are neither too fancy nor too cheap, and above all make for a fun night. Here's a few ideas to help you and your date have a great time:


Depending on where you live, you might not have too many choices, but try to pick a bar that works for your style; bars that are too loud, rowdy, or play music you can't stand are probably bad choices. And of course, always drink responsibly, especially if you're driving.


The trouble with movies is that you can't talk, which makes it hard to get to know each other. They can be a great chapter of the evening, but they shouldn't be the whole date; try to go somewhere else afterwards to discuss it.


Concerts have the same problem as movies: you can't really talk until afterwards. Crowded rock concerts can be particularly crazy, and it can be easy to get separated. However, these can be some of the most fun events in peoples' lives, and if you're both fans of a performer, sharing a concert experience can create a meaningful memory.


Bowling is a great option for dates; it's good, wholesome fun, it's usually reasonably priced, and it encourages conversation. However, many people get burned out after a game or two, so unless you and your partner are avid bowlers, be sure to have a backup plan.


If you live in a city, why not just walk around and see where the night takes you? This can make for a very romantic evening, but it does create pressure for relatively constant conversation, which can be intimidating on a first date. Obviously, stick to safe and well-lit areas.

Most importantly, don't overthink it. You're going out to have fun and get to know each other; the setting's not nearly as important as the connection between you and your date. A truly happy couple will have fun at the grocery store.

5 tips for effective communication in a relationship

Communication is the conveyance of information from one place to another. When you are in a relationship, effective communication helps you to explain what you are going through or what you need to someone else. Communication process not only allows you to meet your needs but it also enables you to become more connected to your partner and invested in your relationship. To facilitate effective communication while dating, here are four tips to help you build a lasting relationship.

Have customary bonding time

Avoid spending all your free time together just watching TV or involved in other activities. Try and hang out together just talking and showing affection to each other. Hanging out in this way builds the kind of closeness that will promote honesty and vulnerable conversations.

Address emotions as soon as you can

Whether it a positive or negative issue that's bothering you, never delay talking it out. Ensure you calmly describe how or why you might be feeling this way. If you are asked, "What's bothering you?" you should never respond with "Nothing" or any other non-committal answer. This is because your issue can't be resolved if the two of you don't know the full story.

Set your expectations early

If there is anything that you want out of the relationship, or feel is an essential quality in a partner or a relationship, make it known as early as possible. Also, share if you regularly need some alone time or if you want to be monogamous and if consistent sex is a priority for you. Ensure you open up about all your relationship concerns from the start through action and communication. Ensure you encourage the other party to share their expectations too.

Essential talks should be in private and in person

Although face-to-face conversations may be uncomfortable, it's the only appropriate way they should be addressed. Emails, phone calls and SMS may not be the right mediums since a lot can be misunderstood and lost through text. But in-person conversations give an ideal time for both parties to explain their part. You MUST avoid public confrontations since you will not put your partner at ease by having an emotional conversation while people are watching and risk making a problem worse.

Never make assumptions

Avoid jumping to conclusions about why your partner acted in a particular way or making assumptions about how he or she feels. A simple question could well save you a lot of headaches and may get your partner to open up to you. In short, it can drive you insane to dwell on a thousand different possibilities. 

Communication is the key to a successful relationship. Embrace these five tips to building effective communication in a relationship and the dating process will run much more smoothly and be more enjoyable. If you're still looking for the one, why not get started on Byber dating app today?

Top signs you're in love with the right person

It is true that most of us have undergone our fair share of heartbreaks and we are always left wondering how it would feel to fall in love with the right person. But when it happens, you’ll realize that the waiting was worth your time. Everything you knew about falling in love will suddenly shift. Here are some of the things and feelings to expect once you fall in love with the right person.

Expectations of perfections are absent

Any true and real relationship will not be perfect. However, while the ties with your soul mate may not be perfect, they will be the perfect fit for you. Each relationship has its own set of problems, but what matters in the end is that you’d still want to be together even during tough times.

You’ll feel valued

The right person for you will not only express love through words but also through actions. They will go out of their way to ensure you feel cherished and communicate how lucky they are to have a special person like you.

Your negativity changes

We often carry negatives from our past experiences and relationships which make us doubt our abilities and potential. However, real love can quickly make you see the positive aspects of your life rather than the negative.

You’ll love yourself even more

Once you learn to love and value yourself more, you’ll also be in a better position to love your partner. Weaker relationships will always challenge your self-worth, but a stronger one will always teach us to value ourselves. The main reason for this is because your partner will make you realize how important you are to them as a whole. 

You feel free but work as a team

Relationships should be all about feeling free to explore what's important to you without being made to feel guilty, but at the same time they should also be built on firm foundations of teamwork and honesty. If you are in the right relationship, you won't struggle to work together or to achieve personal growth and happiness. The strength of the relationship is co-dependent and each individual’s strength lies in the quality of the relationship.

True love will always make you aware of your strengths and weaknesses and teach you how to balance them. Falling in love with the right person cultivates a unique sense of joy and hope. If you’re looking for true love, a dating app like Byber is an excellent place to begin your journey.
