11 Second date ideas with specific calendar dates.
You made it through the first date and both of you are ready to try some second date ideas. We’ve got some great second date ideas to help you see how the two of you line up. These will take you from away from dinner date and you’ll see how each of you react to a little more of a challenge and hopefully more fun. Quick word of caution, once you begin to incorporate these second date ideas you are going to have to keep up with them. In most cases these ideas will be cheaper than going out to dinners. By the way these second date ideas are for the year 2013.
This is just a sampling of second date ideas, (if you get tired of the words: “second date ideas” that just happens to be the key words for this post – let’s get real these are great for beyond second dates).
