What are some tips for calming nerves before a second date?

Going on a second date with a guy who made me so tongue tied on the first. I can usually carry on a conversation pretty well but this guy made me feel like I was in high school again and couldn't function.

  • And you still going on the second one?

    If so... The good point is that he likes you! So you shouldn't be nervous... He already knows how you communicate ;)
    And this time you will be better... Used to the situation.

    I would just say, what you wrote above... Maybe his behavior came from his nervousness

  • Just come out and say you're nervous. If he's a nice guy he'll do what he can to make you feel more comfortable. Don't do a normal date. Do something active that requires a little bit of your attention so you're not wrapped up in how nervous you are.

    • We're playing laser tag (though that's only like 20 minutes) so hopefully that helps.

    • That sounds awesome. Gore you guys have fun.

    • Hope* just remember there is power in vulnerability.

  • To be honestly I was shaking my first date. I don't know what calms nerves but if he’s a good guy he’ll understand. We’ve been dating now for almost 6 months! 😊😊😊 He is perfect! I feel like a middle schooler crushing at a high school boy! He’s everything I could want in a guy and has qualities I never even knew I wanted... kind of got off subject there. But just try to keep your mind off the date and be you. If he’s a good guy he will try to calm your nerves

  • Just remind yourself that he thinks you're really cute and wants to be spending time with you. Also, body language is huge for these situations. Why put into words what you can express through your actions?

  • Just remember he's just another person like you.
    Maybe try to come up with some conversations before the date, but don't make it to obvious that you planned some stuff to say lol

  • Alcohol helps me. Or think of some imaginary flaws. Like his is so hot he probably spends 3 hours a day in front of the mirror. Doesn't have to be true but puts him off the pedastool
