Drinks: Show up 5 minutes early to greet your date when she arrives.

It’s a nice gesture to offer to pick up your date.

For a second date, a woman will likely say “yes” to having you pick her up for the date. Even if it is out of your way, you should offer to pick her up.
You should always pay.
Even if the woman offers, you need to pay. It’s a date!
Say, “I’d love to treat you.” It’s the polite and gentlemanly thing to do. If you asked her out on a date you need to pay. Women always want the man to pay, even if they offer to split the check or pay for themselves.
