So, you’ve met someone new and survived the first date. They called, or maybe you called, and scheduled a second date. What is there to do this time? You want to have fun but aren’t sure if it’s too soon to Netflix and chill. Don’t worry – here are four second date ideas that might be even better than the first.

  1. Bowling

A little friendly competition can be healthy and fun on a date. Bowling makes for a great second date because you’ve already acquainted yourselves on the first date. You might already know each other’s favorite color and favorite thing to eat, and now you can sit back and just enjoy an activity without too much pressure of breaking the ice. Bowling alleys are a perfect all-in-one date destination. There are games, food, drinks, and a cozy place to share conversation. It’s a casual setting, so there’s no pressure to dress fancy or act a certain way.

  1. Making Dinner

If the first date went well and you’ve been talking on a regular basis, staying in at home could be a real pleasure. If you both like to cook, or just want to try something a little different, finding a meal to make together would be a fun time. You’ll learn more about each other, share some laughs, and make memories. Opening your personal space to a new romantic interest is a big deal. It shows a sign of trust and shows you are comfortable with them.

  1. Game Night

Who doesn’t like games? Gather at your place or your date’s and bring out the board games. Have snacks and drinks on hand to make the night even more exciting. The personal setting allows the two of you to break out of your shells and see how you both interact and vibe with each other when alone and in a more intimate setting. Try to keep the games PG to avoid any miscommunication or awkwardness.

  1. Going to the Zoo or Aquarium

If the two of you are into animals, the zoo and aquarium are perfect places for dates. You can have an enjoyable conversation, grab a bite to eat, and observe the animals while learning more about each other. These places are casual and again, there’s no need to feel pressured to dress up in your best attire. After all, when you feel comfortable, the more confident you feel, which makes for a better date.

There are several options when it comes to second date ideas. Just keep in mind that you’ve already gone through the ice breaker stage and should go somewhere you both will enjoy and feel comfortable. The second date should be used as a way of getting to know each other on a more personal level while still having fun. If it feels right, just be yourself, go with the flow, and have a great time!
