5 of the Best Questions to Ask on a Date
So, you have a first date lined up. Are you nervous?
Nearly everyone gets at least a little bit of anxiety on a first date. It is just a normal part of the dating process however we have some great tips that can really help you. They might not completely get rid of any nervousness that you feel but they will make you more confident and relaxed.
A first date is all about asking the right open questions so here are 5 that will not only get you started but keep the conversation flowing too.
#1 What is the Best Place You Have Travelled to?
This question lets you know a lot more about the person that it suggests. Not only will you get them talking about a holiday destination but it gives you an insight into their character. If they say a city like Paris then they love exploring and short getaways or if they say a quiet beach resort in Greece then they are more laid back.
#2 How Do You Spend Your Weekends?
You will get another good insight into the other person with this question. Do they enjoy lazy weekends with Netflix or do they like trying new things? Maybe they even like the great outdoors and going hiking? Who knows and you won’t know until you ask. It can also be a good way to figure out what to do on the next date!
#3 What Makes You Laugh?
Laughter is often one of the first signs that the other person likes you. Make them laugh and you are in with a good chance. Rather than trying to figure out their humour and saying something that is supposed to be funny but is met with silence – ask them what makes them laugh. You might even have the same humour.
#4 What’s on Your Bucket List?
Again, this question lets you find out more about the person but you might also have some bucket list things in common. If the first date goes well then why not arrange to check them off both your lists at the same time?
#5 Who Would Play You in a Movie?
Finally this question is fun and is guaranteed to get a laugh. The answer to this question will be interesting and they might even ask you to name someone for them. It is a good ice breaker and a good method to keep the conversation flowing.
Asking Questions on a First Date
You shouldn’t bombard the other person with question after question nor should you ask any closed questions that are designed to have one word responses.
These top 5 questions to ask on a first date will either get the conversation started or help to avoid this awkward moments of silence when neither of you can think of anything to say. Remember to keep any questions you ask and the date itself light hearted because you don’t want to get too serious too early.
Most importantly – have fun!
