Figure Out Her Favorite Food. Ask her what her favorite food is, and no matter what her answer, say you know the best place for that in the city and that's where you're taking her on your second date. If you don't really know of a place in advance, just say it's a surprise and do your research later. Regardless, you'll have secured date number two!
