DearSugar's Second Date Dos and Don'ts

DearSugar's Second Date Dos and Don'ts

Once you've conquered the first date, a second date is inevitable if you both felt a connection. But with that second date comes an element of pressure that wasn't there the first time around — now you have to really figure out if you like each other! To help you get through it, I'm back with a few suggestions on how you can master your second date — enjoy!

Do Don't
  • Do keep everything in perspective — just because it's your second date, it doesn't necessarily mean it'll be the greatest date of your life, and that's OK.
  • Do show your true colors and start to reveal a little more about yourself while still keeping some things to the imagination.
  • Do bring some humor to the table — show your goofy side too.
  • Do ask those burning questions you want answers to — now is the time to get to know him.
  • Do be intimate if it feels right.
  • Don't lie or fabricate your stories.
  • Don't forget your manners. While you want to be yourself, remember, you're still trying to impress him.
  • Don't play all your cards at once — keep him on his toes.
  • Don't talk too far in the future — you don't want to scare him off.
  • Don't drink too much.
  • Don't feel pressured into being intimate if you're not ready.
  • Don't feel bad saying no to a third date if it turns out that there's no spark.

On our second date, I think I "pulled all the stops" don't. I got really dressed up, even though we were only going to dinner and a movie and after that, it was hard to keep up the look, lol. I told him that I just wanted to look really nice for him, since our first date was just coffee.

i love the "don't fabricate stories" tip by the second date you're probably getting more comfortable and giving more info about your life and i agree, nothing worse than someone trying to impress you with a story that is obviously not real or totally exagerated!
