First dates can often be a little nerve-wracking — this is totally normal. By the second date, you're probably starting to get a sense of whether or not you're genuinely into this person. And by the third, there's a good chance you might be starting to catch some feels. You've been out three times, after all, and at this point, you may start to feel more relaxed around each other, which can pave the way for you to learn some more personal things about them. There are several things to know about someone by the third date, like how they grew up or what their goals are, but if you want to make sure the two of you are on the same page, experts suggest making sure you know the four specific things below.
"In this dating age, a third date can be a milestone," Susan Trombetti, matchmaker and CEO of Exclusive Matchmaking, tells Elite Daily. With so many people out there to get to know, deciding that you want to continue seeing this one person is kind of a big deal, and that goes both ways. If someone wants to continue seeing you, "it's safe to say they are into you, want to know more, and you both are having a great time," Trombetti says. But before you determine if you can really see this person as part of your future, experts recommend knowing these four things by the end of the third date.
