Attraction and chemistry can develop over time, so it doesn't mean things are doomed if you don't know if you like someone from your first meeting. Here's how many dates it takes to know if you like someone:
"I think the first date or two you could be confused about how you feel, especially if the person is different from the other people you have dated in the past,"therapist and relationship expert Nicole Richardson told Elite Daily. "However, if the confusion persists beyond a couple of dates that is likely an indication that you aren't feeling into that person."
Richardson goes on to say:
"If you are trying, that seems like a problem," she says. "If you waste time trying to force something, you could miss out on time with the person you are meant to be with."
