Things To Talk About On Your First Date
To give you a clear idea about the things you should talk about on your first date, there is a division of these topics into three different categories – Background Information, Ice-breakers, creative and out-of-the-box prompts. Also if you keep reading till the end, you will know how you can keep the conversation going or how you can end it nicely.
To start the conversation, you can ask questions such as
- Their hometown,
- Early life
- What was their favorite subject in school
- Hobbies or Passions
But before directly skipping to these questions, talk about the place where the two of you are meeting. Ask them how they like the place and does it match their vibe. If your partner has found the place, ask them how did they find it and if they have visited the place before. This will give a good start to the conversation. Then you can continue by asking the above questions.
To know your partner, better ask them a few personal questions that could break the ice. Do not directly skip to asking them what they do for a living but ask what they like, what are their preferences etc. Some questions that might help are below:
- Do you like to travel? If yes, what is your favorite destination?
- What is your genre for watching movies or series?
- When is your birthday?
- What do you like more, cats or dogs?
Now to ask about their work, you, don’t directly ask what job they do instead:
- Do you like the job you are doing right now?
- How did you decide that you would go into your line of work?
- What is your dream job?
Now we know that these small talks can get boring, but you don’t want that. So to keep the conversation going firstly pay attention to how the person is replying to your questions and then see if they are interested in listening to your answers to their questions and do not immediately jump on to their stories. If you want to find out more about them, to know their personality, these are questions you can ask:
- If given a chance, which day in your life would you like to relive?
- What are the small things that make you happy?
- Can you share one of the qualities in someone else that you want to have for yourself?
- Any weird habits you have or had as a child?
Keep The Date Going?
So after reading the article, we hope you have got a good idea of the things you can talk about on your first date. But now you need to decide if you want to continue the date or end it. If you wish to continue seeing that person, ask them about their plans for the weekend, or ask them if they would like to visit or explore some restaurants together.
But if you don’t want to continue and want to leave generously, just tell them that a friend of yours is waiting, you have a meeting the next day, and you have to prepare for it, so let’s get the check.
