Second dates can be just as precarious an endeavour to approach as the first date. Sure, you are both over the initial bit of nerves and are more comfortable with each other now. But don’t get sucked into a comfort zone too soon. At this stage of courting, just like for a master chess player, every move still counts, and it’s imperative to make sure your queen feels well looked after. Having a few second date topics ready at the drop of a hat is always helpful.

No one wants to follow up a great first date with a boring date number 2. Both of you will be riding high off the initial excitement, your brains still rushing with hormones and happy endorphins. So jump on your social surfboard and carve this wave at the right time to set yourself up for an exhilarating tube ride - okay, that’s enough surfing references for now.
