Ok, so you made it through a first date and it went really well. You both got along, you had tons in common and there was hardly an awkward pause or lull in the conversation. It’s time to move on to the second date. Don’t feel performance anxiety - a second date can be just as special, if not more, then a good first date.
Hopefully on the first date you learned a little about the other person so when it comes to planning what to do choose something you both like, or have a common interest in. Keep in mind it doesn’t have to be exactly literal. Maybe they told you that they always wanted to hike Machu Picchu; I’m not telling you to plunk down thousands of dollars and plan a weeklong trip to Peru complete with guides and hiking gear. But, if they did say they wanted to hike Machu Picchu why not suggest a late afternoon hike to watch the sunset? Did she mention she likes to cook? Why not plan a morning trip to the local farmers market. Peruse the stalls, maybe buy her a bouquet of flowers and grab breakfast while you’re at it. Is he an outdoorsy guy? Why not rent bikes and take a biking tour of your city? Or if you both like to listen to music search your local listings for a free concert or new band for you to go and dance the night away to.
In a relationship, whether it’s friendship or more, one of the most important things is to be a good listener, the first date is an excellent time to start. So really listen to what your date is saying, and surprise them when you plan something they will truly enjoy.
