And this is what led to her deficit in energy and enthusiasm that was so present on the first and second date.

This isn’t necessarily the case.

It’s feasible that she was nervous or anxious in those first two dates, and overcompensated for that by being too energetic.

She was doing this so as not to come off as nervous.

She was hiding the nerves by showing excitement, hoping to prevent you from observing that her hands were shaking, or her voice was about to break at certain moments.

Now that she made it to a third date with you, she is substantially more comfortable.

She is coming back down to her normal temperament.

The girl you got on the third date was who she really is.

She got rid of the nerves and is now being herself.

If you ask her out on a fourth date and she agrees, she is clearly showing that you didn’t mess up.

Avoid getting too carried away with self-doubt.

Rather, continue the dating process of courting her by asking her out on a fourth date.

Did this lead to a negative response from her?

Is there a chance that this girl comes around and still wants to date you?
