When it comes to choosing something to do for the second date, choose a fun activity to keep it casual and light; you're still trying to get to know the person on the second date. When calling for a second date ask them what they would like to do, and if they tell you that they don't know or don't care, take the initiative and make some suggestions.

When deciding what to do, try to stay away from movies or double dating because these activities tend to limit conversation. You want to get to know the person and you want to be able to keep the conversation flowing. Try going for a walk on the beach or a hike in the park. Miniature Golf is a popular activity for a second date because of the fun factor; there is little pressure and the relaxed atmosphere will make the two of you more comfortable.

Bowling is a classic activity and perfect for a second date as well. It's tons of fun and you can have some great conversation at the same time. If you're looking for something different, check your local paper for upcoming fairs (art, food, etc) or events at your local park.

Try to keep the second date fun. If you want to make it feel less like a second date, ask them out during the week. Friday and Saturday are usually date nights so see if they're available during the week. Plan a short date that doesn't run too long such as grabbing some coffee or a drink after work. Afterwards, you can schedule a third date for the weekend. Now that you've gotten over the second date jitters, the third date will be much more comfortable.

Dating isn't easy and seldom does it go exactly as planned. When planning your second date, try to keep it simple and fun so that you don't end up overwhelming your date.
