Good second date ideas.
Now that you are going to have a second date… a lot of pressure is already relieved. So, look at these ideas that I have handpicked for you and make sure you secure a third.
1. Take your pets out for a walk together.
Are you both pet parents? So, why not take your pets on your date too. Hang out with your pets at the park. This way, your pets can bond too. (An added advantage for the future.) 😉
Be careful with your pet’s shenanigans. As they might indulge in a fight with your partner’s pet. Oops!! That won’t be a nice date and lead to awkward silences.
2. Take cake decorating classes.
Sprinkle your cake with glitters on top of a navy-blue fondant. Decorating a cake is a pretty impressive way to win your partner’s heart. You can even take a class together to learn cake decoration skills.
Make your partner go awwwwwww with their favorite theme on the cake. Shower those stars on them, honey.
3. Draw each other on your canvas.
Satisfy your artistic spirits on your second date. Draw your date on the canvas (of your heart.)
Make intense observations. Let them know how serene and beautiful they appear to your eyes and pin down every detail in your art. Trust me, it is all in the details.
4. Give each other thoughtful gifts.
Isn’t it the best thing ever? When someone gives you a thoughtful gift. It shows that the person actually made a lot of effort before finally giving you their present.
Usually, it is easy to ascertain someone’s feelings by the kind of gifts they give you. It also says a lot about their inner self.
So, give your date a cute and thoughtful gift and not a mindless one. Please, do not give them that random candle from the supermarket.
5. Challenge them to a game of ping-pong.
Test the skills of your partner with a game of ping-pong. It is also a good test of your compatibility.
You can get to know them better while you dilly-dally on the road of high school memories embracing that nostalgia.
A game of ping-pong will also help you bond. Who knows, they might share some crazy ping-pong table stories from their frat parties.
This is the key to being privy to all the insider secrets. *Let them spill the tea, amigo.
6. Hit up a silent disco.
Silent discos have been quite a thing now. They have been a hot destination recently, because of how convenient they are.
They are available anywhere and everywhere. Silent discos are perfect for people who want to dance in the crowd but want to groove to their own music.
Have a great time together while cherishing your difference in opinions with a silent disco. Dance buddy. Dance till dawn.
7. Rummage through a thrift store.
Now that you are on a second date, you can show them how thrifty you are by raiding a thrift store. Explore your experimenting self and try some bold outfits.
You can bond with each-other while bargaining for some clothes and accessories at the thrift store.
Get ready to have some bold and beautiful additions to your cloth rack. Go ahead, try on those leather pants and take them home.
8. Experience window shopping together.
Window shopping is fun, especially on your second date. You can go ahead and show your partner how you might look if you were born into the royal family.
Try some over-the-top outfits and make each other laugh.
Go crazy with your choices and throw them into a fit of laughter. So, how is our pseudo-Prince William looking in those cloaks and tunics?
9. Have an exclusive contest at PlayStation.
Take out your PlayStation and dust it before it becomes a token of the past. Challenge your partner to a dual on the second date. Second dates are supposed to be fun and chill rather than grand and happening.
Talk more about each other while you kick each other’s ass at the game. Lay the table with some delicious snacks and explore their competitive side.
Do you think they will cry over losing that game of FIFA 15?
10. Go volunteering for a charity show.
You probably know every random detail about their life from your first date. If not, then this is your chance.
Take them to volunteer at a charity show and you will get plenty of time to know everything about each other’s life.

How to Pick a Great Second Date Idea?
After being on the first date, the butterflies in your stomach have become fat, and wanna pick a second date while planning further dates with them.
Well, in the dating world, the first impression cannot be your last impression… there’s more.
But you need to understand that all date ideas are not fit for you… you need to know how to pick the right one.
Let’s see how you can do that.
1. Take leads from the first date.
The first date must have given you an idea about the person, their traits, preferences, likings, and dislikings, etc.
So, take a cue from that and pick a date idea that can cast a lasting impression on your partner.
If you are willing to explore more, you must select a date idea that is comparatively less noisy and you both can talk to each other.
2. Put a lot of thought while picking the location.
Picking a thoughtful location is the prime element of planning the second date. Of Course, you know that the vibe and the environment set the tone and energy for the entire date.
So, if you already have an idea about the activities and preferred locations of your date, then, you can plan the location for your date, accordingly, like a bike ride or sunset watching.
This way, it will be easy for you to make a pick from this list.
3. Pick a casual environment.
Unless you are unsure about anything mentioned above, it is best to pick a neutral and casual environment for your second date.
Instead of going out on a dinner date and making things awkward cause you hardly have any topic to make conversations with!
Something like a nearby cafe that can give you both enough time and space to talk to each other will work wonders.
4. Communicate effectively.
Communication is the key, as we all know. An ideal second date is where you both can open up and communicate your thoughts and opinion about different matters.
Women tend to get fascinated by men who spark a conversation… men who make them curious instead of empty-rated compliments and cheesy pickup lines.
While keeping everything in mind, remember that listening plays just as much role in a conversation as talking.
5. Be mindful.
When heading towards your second date, make notes from your first date and enlist all the things that make her uncomfortable and insecure.
Keep such factors in mind and be mindful enough about her expectations from the date.
Women appreciate when men observe their behavior and habits and try making them feel comfortable and at ease.
A word from ThePleasantRelationship
Do not make assumptions beforehand.
If you know what I mean!
As humans, we tend to compare and connect every experience in the past with our present ongoing situation.
Well, this can go really bad if you continue doing this on your future dates.
Being judgemental can actually kill the vibe and connection.
It is not necessary that your “perfect match” would be everything that you’ve ever desired for.
But that doesn’t mean you must take a step back.
In fact, give your thoughts a little rest, for things unfold in the best way when they do not unfold in a planned way!
