We've prepared a few helpful tips to help make your second date every bit as successful as your first.
1) Be yourself. Really, be yourself. This is not the time to start pretending to like new music, hobbies or food. Be honest about who you are and what you think and feel. Don't try to impress your date (this goes for men and women).
S/he will see (eventually) through your dishonesty. And, more importantly, you want to be liked for who you are, not who you pretend to be.
2) Remember and follow-up on your first date conversation. Nothing makes a person feel more at ease and appreciated than remembering the details of your prior conversation. Helpful hint: if you have a bad memory, write yourself a note after the first date to remind yourself of something you'd like to bring up in future conversation.
3) Be an active listener/ask questions. The foundation of a great second date is a good conversation. This requires listening and asking questions. It's not hard, but it does require some effort.
