Yayyyy! You've both agreed to another date!!! Congratulations! So what's the plan for the date? Get rid of the pressure and expectations. You kind of already both like each other so just focus on finding things you'll both enjoy or remember for a while later, if it goes terrible.
1.COOK DINNER TOGETHER AT HOME INSTEAD OF GOING OUT
Why eat out at a restaurant where it is loud and busy when you can just enjoy the company of your date in the comfort of your home or theirs? Even better, choose a meal that you can cook together. This will give an opportunity for the two of you to really interact, talk, flirt, and bond as you prepare a delicious meal that you can enjoy together.
2. ORDER TAKEOUT AND EAT AT HOME
If cooking is really not your thing, do not worry. You can also order food from a restaurant and enjoy it at home. Remember that eating takeout at home by yourself is different than eating takeout at home with a date.
For your date, you will want to tidy up your home. Make the space a little romantic. You can do this with plenty of candles on the table.
3. AMUSEMENT PARK/Fun Fair Arcade
Amusement parks are great for a 2nd date. You can play carnival games and see who wins the most stuffed animals or you can sit side by side on rides like Ferris wheels and roller coasters. Then, when you are hungry you can share a classic amusement park snack like a huge helping of cotton candy.
4.RENT BIKES AND EXPLORE
In many big cities, you can now rent bikes and go exploring. If you live in london (brap brap SW17) Boris bikes should be your friend! This makes for a great idea. Alternatively, if you do not live anywhere with bike rentals, you and your date can ride your own bikes if you have them.
5. ESCAPE ROOM
Put you and your date’s heads together for this date idea. Escape rooms are a huge trend now and you can pick from a wide variety of themes and levels of difficulty. When you sign up to do an escape room, you and your date will have a certain amount of time to follow the clues to get you out of a locked room.
6. GO ON A PICNIC
Currently we are in winter as i type this blog, but hey whatever rocks your boat! If you can brave the cold, or its warm outside, take your meal outdoors when the weather is nice and lovely. Bring a suitable blanket, a picnic basket, and good picnic food. Some simple ideas for a simple picnic meal include sandwiches, fruits, and other easy finger foods. Don’t forget drinks and dessert as well. Find a nice park to picnic in and enjoy your second date.
7. GO ON A SCAVENGER HUNT
Doing a local scavenger hunt together will give you and your date the opportunity to work as a team, and it will also give you a chance to spend time together as a couple. You can either print out a scavenger hunt list online or sign up for a professional scavenger hunt.
8. GO FOR ICE CREAM
To really make an ice cream date fun, try to order something other than your usual flavour. Share your ice cream with your date and enjoy your sweet treats.
9.DISCOVER A NEW NEIGHBOuRHOOD TOGETHER
There is something both romantic and adventurous about discovering a new area together. At the same time, you do not always have to hop on a plane to do this. Instead, make a date out of walking around a neighbourhood that is new to both you and your date.
You can decide to do your research on this neighbourhood or you might choose to just go in blindly instead. ie TOOTING (Best in the world!)
10.PLAY MINI GOLF
Mini golf is a classic date idea that would be great for your 2nd date. You and your date can compete one on one to see who will win your round of mini golf.
Bowling is another great 2nd date idea. Get your own lane so you and your date can knock some pins down together.
12. GO ROCK CLIMBING
Whether you’ve done it before or are doing it for the first time, rock climbing is a great, active date idea that isn’t done to death at all.
13. GO PADDLE BOATING
Going on a boat ride for two can be really fun and romantic. With paddle boating, you will have to work together and you will get to see how you and your date function as a team.
14. OUTDOOR MOVIE Cinema
Instead of doing the usual film at a cinema, mix things up a little by going to an outdoor movie showing. It can be a nice and romantic date and you can even bring along a picnic and some blankets so you and your date can snuggle.
15. PLAY FRISBEE OR BASKETBALL
There can be something fun about being competitive with your date. Play a casual sport together like Frisbee or one on one basketball. Winner gets to pick the next date idea.
16. HAVE A GO KART RACE
No matter what anyone says, you are never too old for go kart racing with your date. Get the adrenaline rushing when you race your date to the finish line on your 2nd date together.
17. GO TO A FOOD FESTIVAL
Agreeing on where to eat can sometimes be a challenge, so why not hit up a food festival instead? With so many options to choose from, you and your date will definitely find food that you can both enjoy.
18. ATTEND A CAR BOOT SALE
Boot fairs are full of food, entertainment, and endless shopping. It is a perfect date idea for you and your crush because there is so much to do.
19. ICE SKATING OR ROLLER SKATING
Take your budding relationship for a spin when you and your date go ice or roller skating for your 2nd date.
20. GO TO A COMEDY SHOW
A comedy show is a nice way to just sit back, relax, and laugh on your date.
21. SEE A CONCERT
For your 2nd date, you can go check out a concert together. A seated concert is more ideal, as it will be a little more romantic than a standing concert. Some genres, like jazz, tend to lend themselves really well to date nights.
Check out a museum with your date. If art might be a bit boring to you, then do not worry. There are many other different kinds of museums out there that you can try. You can also take a look at a science museum, an open air museum, a maritime museum, and so much more.
23. ATTEND AN ART OPENING
Explore some original artwork with your date when you attend an art opening for your date. It can end up being a very inspiring night for both of you. If you're in London, the Saatchi Gallery is free!
24. GO TO A TRIVIA NIGHT TOGETHER
This date idea is another one where you and your date will find out how you work together as a team. You can either do a general trivia night or one with a particular theme.
25. GO TO A KARAOKE BAR
Whether you can hold a note or are a complete amateur, go try a karaoke bar with your date. If you get stage fright, you might want to have a drink or two first though.
26. GO LINE DANCING
If you or your date are not the best dancers, you have nothing to worry about. With line dancing, everyone does the same dance moves.
27. VISIT A BOTANICAL GARDEN
Admire the beautiful flowers and other plants at a lovely botanical garden on your 2nddate.
28. GO TO A WINE TASTING
Enjoy a romantic wine tasting for your date. You will just be sampling a little bit of wine so you won’t really get drunk, but you will be able to loosen up just a bit around your crush.
29. GO ON A GHOST TOUR
For people who are into all things spooky, a ghost tour might be the perfect 2nd date. When you are feeling a little spooked, you and your date can hold hands for comfort.
30. ZOO OR AQUARIUM
Enjoy the beauty of the world’s many creatures on your 2nd date. A zoo or aquarium will have many exhibits for you and your date to check out so you will never get bored.
31. PLAY POOL
Bring out your competitive nature when you play pool against your date.
32. GO TO A FARMER’S MARKET
Head with your date to your local farmer’s market for some fresh food and produce. If you like, you can even pick up ingredients so you can cook a meal together later.
At this stage, allow yourself to feel more relaxed around your date. Ideally it will take little to no effort for you to feel comfortable around this person and you will care a lot less about impressing them or accidentally putting them off.
1. GO TO THE MOVIES
Instead of going to a regular cinema, check out a cinema with comfortable luxury seats and food that you can order. It is much more romantic than the usual movie outing. GO VIP!!
2.HIT UP A PHOTO BOOTH
Commemorate your 3rd date with your crush by hitting up a photo booth together. Now is the time to be cute and flirty. Don’t forget to make some fun, goofy face for the camera as well.

Dancing is always fun and you can both show off your dance moves. You can find a local salsa bar, dance under the stars or just find a place with great live music.

If you both like the outdoors, then you might enjoy going for a nice scenic hike together. You might even be able to sneak in a kiss or two on this romantic hike.
5. GO TO A SPORTS GAME
Bring your date and root for your favorite home team at a local sports game. You can make a big event of it and even get merchandise and all of the classic concessions snacks to share with your date.
For an inexpensive but romantic date, rent a movie and snuggle up on the couch with your date.
7. HAVE A GAME NIGHT
Have a fun and romantic game night for your 3rd date. From card and board games to video games, you and your date will have many games to choose from.

If movies are not for you, then you and your date can binge watch a TV show together. Just make sure that it is a show that you both like to watch.
9. COUPLES MASSAGE
Because massage is such an intimate thing, the earliest that you and your date should go on a couples massage is the 3rd date. Together, you and your date can relax, unwind, and enjoy each other’s company. I highly recommend Urban Massage! Google them!

If you love the idea of romantic novels, then you might enjoy going horseback riding for your 3rd date. Take your date and ride off into the sunset on horseback together.
