Tips on Second Date

So, I see that you have made it to your second date with your newfound partner! Job well done! You apparently made a good impression and your prospective lover wants to meet up with you again. Now what? What is he or she expecting? And more importantly, what are the things that can bring this potentially good thing you have to a whole new level called “Love”?

First dates are really important. After all, everybody knows that first impressions are pretty difficult to shake. But more often than not, it is your second date that really seals the deal on whether both of you should be moving forward or just go your separate ways. If you were anxious and awkward during your first date, the second date is the best time to redeem yourself. If the first date was, in actual fact, great, you got to level up your game on your next face-to-face encounter. Impressing in-person through is way different compared to impressing online.

To help you out with that, here are 5 things that can turn your second date into something fun and unforgettable.

1) Choose an exciting activity that you and your partner can enjoy.

For your first date, you probably stuck to the classics like a dinner date or an afternoon stroll. The second date offers you the opportunity to branch out and bare a little more about yourselves. So consider doing something exciting and active like a trip to mini-golf, a day at the amusement park or a boat ride at your nearby park. These activities will help you out in slowly divulging your inner self to your partner as well as in getting to know him or her a whole lot better.

2) Be funny.

It is a common fact that first dates aren’t exactly tension-free. It is packed with way too much jitters that’s enough to cause a seizure attack. Fortunately, second dates are a lot tamer, more comfortable and give you the chance to make up for all the awkwardness and humiliation you were able to pull out on your first jaunt. You can finally loosen up a little bit and crack a joke or two. This way, you can lighten up the entire mood and make room for a more fun-filled one-on-one encounter.

3) Bring a surprise gift.

Did she mention that she has an irrational love for snow globes? Did he tell you that he adores Steven Spielberg’s works way too much? Take a clue from your first date conversations and bring your partner a surprise gift that is close to one of his or her interests. The second date gives you the opportunity to show your partner that you were indeed paying attention during your last date. When you remember the information you gathered during your first meet-up and show your partner just that, it will instantly create a positive connection.

4) Don’t rush for physical touches.

Second dates are way too early for full lip-locks and anything like that, so keep your lips, hands and other body parts to yourself. Your second date should be about discovering each other more, and by that, we mean your personalities, likes and dislikes, interests and other nonsexual-oriented topics. You can flirt, but make sure to keep it within acceptable limits unless you want to scare your partner off and lose your chance on love.

5) Find out more.

Most of the most memorable second dates became such because both parties were pretty interested in wanting to find out more about each other. Be inquisitive and ask your partner a lot of questions. Ask him or her about his or her general outlook in life, social circle, lifelong dreams and other interesting topics. This way, you will make him or her feel extra special and that you really are interested. Just don’t overdo it though unless you want to sound like an annoying, investigative reporter. Set limits to your questions. Never ask about sensitive topics such as political opinions, religious views, or worse, sexual preferences. That’s just plain rude – and downright awkward.

The second date lets you uncover a lot about your date and vice versa. It is the perfect time for you and your new dating partner to build the basics and establish if you got a shot on love or not. So, better make sure that this date is one-of-a-kind, fun and unforgettable for both you and your partner.
