Best Second Date Ideas

So you got the courage to ask her out on a first date and everything went well and she’s agreed to a second date with you. What do you do now? How do you change things up from the first date so she doesn’t get bored, and ensure that there will be a third date in your future?

Just because she agreed to see you another time, it doesn’t mean that everything is in the clear and you can rest on your laurels now. You always have to be on top of your game and show her that you are someone who is worth spending time with. So what do you do so you don’t blow your second chance to impress her? Here are a number of ideas you can use for your next date and make her want to see you yet again.

What to Do on a Second Date

The second date is just as, if not more, important than the first date. Why is that? Because on the first date we aren’t quite ourselves. We’re a little nervous, we’re feeling each other out. You might be trying hard to impress and not really letting your guard down. That’s why the second date is so important that you show more of yourself. The key is to relax and have some fun and show you who you are, and encourage her to do the same. These fun 2nd date ideas are designed to make it easy for the both of you to do just that.

For one, you can take a bike ride together. This is a great way to not only get some exercise, but also show her that you are not a couch potato and live an active life. You’ll find out if she is of similar thinking as well. If you don’t own bikes or don’t want to rent them, you can substitute a nature hike instead. There’s probably plenty of fun trails in your area for you to explore.

Another thing you can do, and this is mentioned in our page about fun things to do with your girlfriend, is to visit a brewery or taproom and get a tour. You get to see how everything is made and try out some great beers. You’ll find out each other’s tastes (and see if she’s a beer drinker in the first place).

For a little bit of activity and to bring out the competitive side in each other, take her mini golfing. This is an ideal thing to do on your second date because it provides a great atmosphere to chat and flirt and have a little friendly competition with each other. There’s also the playful side of things since it brings you back to your childhood a bit. This gives her the chance to let her hair down and have some fun.

Lastly, you can cook for her. What woman doesn’t love a man that can cook? Throw out the gender roles and show her your culinary skills. Of course, this all depends on her comfort that soon to be in one of your houses and not in public.

Give these date ideas a try and have some fun getting to know one another!
