So we went on a date last week, it went well and now we're going out again for lunch tomorrow. It's only the second date but with it being so close to Valentine's day I hope there won't be an expectation to get a gift? I've just never gone out on a date with a girl this close to Valentine's day where she wasn't my girlfriend. I hope she isn't expecting one but on the other hand if I do get one I don't want her to think I'm coming on too strong. But she also may think it's cute. What are your thoughts on the matter? I am leaning towards no gift since we have only been on two dates and I doubt there is an expectation there.

No I don't think there will be that expectation.
I was in the same situation a couple years ago. We had had a few dates. But didn't do the valentines thing at all.
Personally, if someone bought me a gift on a second date I would feel a little awkward, maybe even a little freaked out.
But if they bought me some drinks or dinner I would think it is a nice gesture :)
If you guys hit it off for longer then a gift isn't weird.
Like I said, maybe just buy her dinner or something instead. And don't indicate you are doing so since it's valentines. Just be a gentleman.
If some kid comes by with a basket of roses, so by the rose.
To be fair if I was on a 2nd date on valentines I would be freaked out enough haha
I had a 2nd date a couple weeks ago with someone, tried to split the bill but they wern't having it. Was very kind of them and a nice gesture so I think that will be good enough!
