3 min readDec 9, 2020

You did it! You’re going on your first date with someone you’ve been talking to for a little while (how to prepare for the date), and you’re excited. You want everything to go smoothly, and if everything works out, you should be making plans for your second date before the first date is over.

Here are a few tips to get you from the first date to the second date and maybe happily ever after.

A Second Date!!!
  1. Arrive Early ⌚

Now, this goes without saying. When you show up early, you’re letting your date know that this date means something to you. It also gives you some time to relax, calm your nerves and get ready to charm the pants off your date.

2. Look Good, Smell Good ✨✨✨

You don’t want to show up to your date looking like you just rolled out of bed. Take your time to plan and prepare your outfit for the date. Put on something that makes you look and feel attractive. Spend a bit more time on grooming so that you look good and smell good. Your date will appreciate the effort, and it will boost your confidence. You will need all the confidence you can get to secure that second date.

3. Maintain Eye Contact 👀

The eyes, they say, are the windows to the soul. When you’re out on your first date, don’t forget to make eye contact. Keeping eye contact with your date makes you look interested in them and the conversation you’re having. If you’re interested in someone, there’s no way you won’t find yourself looking into their eyes. You can keep someone interested in you with just the right amount of eye contact.

4. Be Present 🧘

So, this might seem like an obvious one but trust me it’s not. We are so used to being on our phones so much so that we forget ourselves in situations where we shouldn’t. When you’re on a first date trying to get to a second date, you should give your date your undivided attention. This simple thing can make all the difference in the world.

5. Just Smile 🙂🙂😃

You can get a second date just by smiling. When you smile, you’re letting your date know that you enjoy their company and that is so important. When you’re out on that first date, you should make the conscious effort to smile and show your date that you’re happy to be there. You can also say a joke or two to make your date laugh and let down their guard around you.

Finally, at the end of the date, make sure you ask for that second date. If you want it, you had better ask. Don’t just sit and expect your date to be the one to bring it up. Go for what you want!

After all, the worst they can do is say “No”, and that’s fine.
