If you’re like most people, you get excited and nervous about your first date with that cute guy or girl that has finally asked you out. The first date can be nerve-wracking as you wonder what you will talk about with someone you hardly know. Keep your energy fun and humorous. Here are a few interesting topics to discuss on your first date.
1. Job and career goals
It’s important to get a feel for his or her career goals because these goals will give you an idea of what type of personality and future he or she may have. Women prefer lively conversation, which can be an excellent way to measure his interests, not only in general but also his interest in her. Don’t be shy and ask questions but don’t be too probing!
2. What do you do in your free time?
Asking this question is especially important to get an idea of what your date’s interests are and what their likes and dislikes consist of. This question is an excellent way to conclude whether you have common interests and hobbies.
3. Who is the most interesting person you’ve met or who is your hero?
His or her response to this first date question can bring on an intimate discussion for the two of you to get to know each other on a deeper level and bring both parties a deeper understanding about your date’s family, friends, and people they have met. For example, his response to this question may be that his mother is his hero because she raised him and his younger siblings alone without any help. Immediately, you will know that he respects women and appreciates them because of the way his mother worked hard to raise him and his siblings the right way.
4. What kind of pets have you had, and do you currently have any now?
Many people love animals and these days, animals are like children for many singles. The way a man or woman interacts with their pets will give you an idea of how they would be as a parent for future reference. Not having any pets in the past or any now could mean your date either don’t have the time or just doesn’t want the responsibility of owning a pet. It all depends on how you feel about animals yourself, so beware!
5. What, if any, are your favorite sports/teams/players?
Asking this first date question is specifically important for a woman to ask a man because it shows she has an interest in her date and is thinking about possibly having future dates with him. If she shows interest in his favorite sports or teams then she also may share some of the same interests in sports.
6. What is a talent that you have, which you find unique?
Keeping this first date question in the conversation continues to provide a light, fun, humorous atmosphere while conversing with one another. This question is intimate but not too personal, so have fun with it!
7. If you could live anywhere in the world where would you choose to live?
Opening the communication lines with this light, fun question will help both parties relax during the first date. As we all know, a first date can be tough especially if one or both parties are shy or an introvert. This is a great question that can help keep the conversation flowing smoothly!
8. Are you an indoor or outdoor person?
This first date question is also fun and will help you both understand each other better as far as what your likes and dislikes involve. This question will help lead you to what you both have in common and don’t.
9. What is your dream job?
On a first date, it is good to keep the conversation more light and fun because after all, it is only a first date, so this is a good question to help learn more about each other and get an idea if each of you has similar or different career goals. If a second date happens this question will give you both more to discuss in greater detail.
10. What TV series have you kept watching and re-watching?
This is a great first date question and will give each of you an idea of what types of shows or movies the other enjoys, which is always good to know in case a second date is in order. We all have a few shows we love to binge watch!
