Knowing how and when to confirm a date will make you sound casual when you do it. Nobody wants to get up, so if you haven’t spoken to each other since the first date, it’s perfectly fine to confirm your date.

How to confirm a date and stay cool

You want to confirm your date because suddenly things can come up that disrupt the planning. You can easily send an SMS to confirm your date. Just act natural and you’ll come across as cool. You can say things like:

  • “Is 7 too early to pick you up tonight?”
  • “Do you have a favorite place you’d like to eat?”
  • “I thought we could go see the X movie tonight. Would that work or is there another one you’d like to see?”
  • “Would you rather meet me, can I send you an Uber or do you want me to pick you up?”
  • “I’m really looking forward to hanging out tonight. What time would you like to meet up?”

When should you text to confirm a date?

When arranging the date for the first time, you should confirm it. It’s easy to be causal by simply saying or texting that you’re looking forward to seeing the person and then providing the date and time.

Confirm the day before your date

It is customary to confirm the date the day before as things emerge and plans can change. You can write something like:

  • “I can’t wait to see you tomorrow night.”
  • “I’m looking forward to dinner tomorrow night.”
  • “I’ll be in touch to make sure we’re still there tomorrow night.”

Who should confirm the date?

Who confirms the date depends on the people and circumstances that require the confirmation. For example, if you didn’t hear from your date the day before, you might want to send a quick text message to confirm your date is still coming up.

  • “Hi, I’m looking forward to tonight. See you at 7:30 p.m.”
  • “I can’t wait to try the new menu at Mario’s tonight. See you at 6 p.m.
  • “I can get off work a little early, so I’ll be on time for our 6pm date tonight.”
  • “I found this great article about the theater. Can’t wait to see the renovations with you tonight. See you at 7:30pm.”
  • “I’ve been looking forward to hearing this band all week. See you tonight at 8pm.”

If you haven’t heard from your husband by the day before your date, you may need to take the initiative.

  • Text on the morning of your date.
  • Time your text by considering whether it is working or in class.
  • If you don’t know his schedule, then 9am to 10am is a good time to send your texts.
  • It’s possible he was waiting to text you in the morning, so you might want to wait until noon, but no later. You could text: “I’m looking forward to going to the concert tonight. See you at 8.”

How to confirm a date with a girl via SMS

You can text your girl the day or night before your date. You want her to know you’ll be there, and you expect her to be. You can then text her when you’re out, or when you’re leaving work you can just text her, “I’m leaving work. I look forward to seeing you in thirty minutes.” It’s just standard courtesy and she’ll appreciate your attention.

How to confirm a date without sounding desperate

Whenever you’re texting to confirm a date, it’s best to be very casual about it. Choose your words so you don’t come across as nervous, anxious, or frightened. Take the time to make your text complete but not too long and detailed. You expect your date to be as excited as you are, so approach your texting with confidence. A very causal way to confirm your date is to extend it beyond your original date to include dinner or a movie. You can use the weather as a fulcrum for your text. Some examples are:

  • “I look forward to seeing you again. See you at 6:30 p.m.”
  • “Would you like to have an early dinner tomorrow night before the cinema? Instead of picking you up at 7:30pm, I can come over at 5:30pm. Let me know if that sounds good.”
  • “After checking the weather forecast for tomorrow evening, I’m going to find my umbrella! See you tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. Until then, stay dry!”
  • “When I thought about the game tomorrow night, I suddenly had a craving for a hot dog. See you at 6 p.m. Be prepared to eat hot dogs!”
