So what happened here? How did your date go?
1) In my opinion, going to see a movie is a pretty poor way to spend time with a girl. You don't get the chance to talk to her for long. Getting fast food together is not a bad idea. That way, if you realize you don't like her within the first 10 minutes or so, you can end the date real soon. The same is true for her. Ideally, plan on doing like 5 or 10 small things back to back....So meet up for coffee. Then after that say, hey I've heard about this really great art gallery that's showing...Then after that say, Hey I know there is an awesome view from this tower...etc. You'll have back to back mini-dates. And you can stop it whenever you want.
That is the ideal. You don't have to have numerous things to do with a girl back to back on every date.
2) You should see how she feels about you during the date. Hug her as soon as you meet her. Halfway through, try to hold her hand. If you get a firm "No" or "I don't want to hold hands", don't try again. BUT if she just slides her hand away, maybe she is just shy. Maybe you just caught her off guard. Wait 5 minutes and try again. If it fails a second time, don't try any other affectionate thing that day. If you do get to hold her hand, at some point try to kiss her.
3) Refer back to 2. You want to escalate. Don't push past her boundaries. Don't do something that she doesn't want. But the way to find out if a girl wants your affection, is to be affectionate to her.
