How long does it take you to know you want to "date" a first date from online? Is there more i can be doing to give chemistry a try?

I know this topic has been discussed here, but I couldn't find a question addressing it specifically.
I am asking this question because I am fairly new to online dating. (I am a straight female btw ). What I am finding that happens is that I seem to know almost immediately upon seeing someone and talking to them (for a few minutes) whether I am interested in taking it further. I have gone on a 2nd, and in one case, a 3rd date with someone I didn't feel much chemistry with, but it always fizzled out. In your experience, is one date enough to tell? What are the criteria you use to determine whether you want a second date? For me, I just "know", but I am wondering if I am being too strict. When should I give it another shot and when should I not, if I'm not feeling it? What can I do on a first date to ensure I am giving the person a fair shot? Did you ever have a first (internet) date that was very "meh", only to go on to a successful relationship? I am interested in hearing your experiences. I am specifically interested in first dates where you have never met in person previously.
