A date is, like it or not, an audition. Much more than we would admit, we’re trying to imagine each other as prospective partners. Seduction, in its larger, more important sense, means gradually persuading someone that we’re a great candidate with whom to be in a relationship. And it sounds like you had a great audition! This doesn't mean that things will still be the same three years from now, but it does look like you're on your way to that second date you auditioned for!
Even if you thought things were going well, it seems that your date may have been thinking just the opposite. First dates can be nerve-wracking, and it's easy to slip into a mode where we want to make a good impression, and we want to be liked. It's hard to imagine that as lovely as you thought you were that night, your date just isn't that into you. If you feel that you were being your most genuine, honest self, then there is nothing to worry about, because they are just not the right person for you and it's better to find out now than later!
