We recently asked you what turns you off on a first date, and 51 percent of you said "cellphone dependency," or "not being able to put your cellphone down for more than 5 minutes at a time." We agree that this is a huge turn-off, but now we want to know, what makes for a great first date?



Based on past experience, we came up with a few key indicators:

1. Lots of laughing. Lots of laughing means you're clicking, and more importantly, having fun!

2. Physical attraction. If your knee keeps finding his under the table, or he keeps "accidentally" touching you, it's a sign that you can't keep your hands off of each other.

3. Good conversation flow. No lulls? It might be true love! It's never a great sign when you run out of things to talk about during your very first conversation.

4. Similar taste in ... something. Did you realize that you like the same movies or music, or have similar religious or political beliefs? This can build the foundation for a lasting relationship.

5. You can't keep your eyes off of each other. If you're gazing at each other ... and your smartphones are the last things on your minds ... you just might score a second date.

    Plenty of good conversation about a wide variety of things. The most attractive thing I find in a woman is intelligence.

    The best sign of a great first date is waking up next to her, naked, and she's doing the waking with a whole lotta gusto!!! That's how my wife caught me three years ago!!! What a great first date that has never ended!!!

    Thank you very much! I hope you land a partner as beautiful, understanding, and horny as mine. She even invited her sister in to our bedroom (without me knowing in advance) to fulfill one of my fantasies! Great weekend that was! Now I've got to find a dude for hers!

    What's the Best Sign of a Great First Date?
    A blow job? (*joke*) Physical attraction is important, but only to a point. I would choose a "cute" but funny, intelligent, sweet, considerate woman, over a drop dead gorgeous, but selfish, boring, egotistical, high maintenance, bitchy woman,.....anytime.

    Sure. So was it the BJ joke? Or the fact that I value "substance over style"?

    If you always have something to talk about that's good! Not good if you just sit there awkwardly.

    Lots of laughing combined with good conversation flow. I'm pretty shy and quiet so when I can openly talk and laugh with a guy on the first date that's really good.

    One test that has never failed me is that if a lady is truly interested in you, she will find pretexts to touch you.

    Small touches, not overtly sexual and probably not repeated too often. Tapping you on the forearm when you share a joke, touching your shoulder when you meet. That kind of thing.

    Even when not on a formal "date" a woman who is interested will do this.

    And you don't want the date to end, even if that means sitting in a vacant park at 2AM just to keep talking.

    You left out: "The female jumps your bones before you have to pay for the dinner and theater."

    Everyone should bring up the movie "All About Steve" (made in 2009) on You Tube and view the car scene where Mary Horowitz (Sandra Bullock) jumps the bones of Steve (Bradley Cooper) in his SUV right in front of her parents home before he has to spring for dinner. Everyone will need a cold shower after the viewing!
