How to Handle The Second Date
So you’ve gone on that first date and everything went really well. You could tell while everything was taking place that you had a connection and the two of you had fun. Even before asking, you knew that another date was inevitable since there was great chemistry and sparks were in the air. But now here’s the dilemma: how do you follow up on a good first date?
The first thing you want to do is pick a good location to have your second date. It will still be too early to invite someone over for supper so you’re still in public space territory. As such, your selection of destinations should be kept simple. Avoid going to the movies since you won’t have a chance to speak there. It’s not until you get to know each other and feel very comfortable that you want to spend time doing an activity where there is limited talking. You could try going to a restaurant for a quick meal, but why not be more adventurous?
Ideally, the first date took place at lunch time or it was a very simple early dinner. If you feel a good connection, you can go for lunch again but this time, add an activity to the possible itinerary. A trip to the park or a stroll around downtown is the perfect accompanying activity with a light meal. Remember, the second date is not the occasion to overdo the romance. You still want to keep it casual since the feeling-out process is still happening. But this is an essential time because you are in the transition between “casual time” and “romantic time”. Use this period wisely since you can learn about your date without being bogged down by any serious pressures.
The second date should be light, casual, and memorable. Remember the highlights of the first date and instead of trying to re-create them, you should be elaborating on them. Create the memories on which further dates will be based on and have fun while doing it. If all goes well, you’ll be preparing for that third get-together!
