You are dating and you are going on a date and you’re very excited but also a little nervous. You’re not sure what you could talk about and how to avoid uncomfortable silences. Here is a little guide to give you some great ideas on what to talk about when on a date:
Ask a fun question: It is always best to keep a first date fun and cheerful, so ask your date some fun facts about themselves like which is their favorite combination of two ice cream flavors and which is not.
Talk about hopes and dreams: As clichéd as this might sound, it is actually a great way to keep the conversation going. You’ve told him or her what you already do for a living and they’ve told you, now talk about what you would really like to be doing instead, and why?
Funniest/most embarrassing moment: Show off your sense of humor by talking about the funniest or most embarrassing thing that happened to you and encourage them to do the same. A good laugh could really ease any tension there might be.
Ask about their hobbies: This is a great way to get a conversation going. Asking about someone’s hobbies and interests gives you a chance to get to know them better and if you have shared interests, you will have more to talk about.
Tell them about your hobbies: Tell them about your hobbies and interest and anything else interesting about yourself. Give them a chance to ask you questions and answer sincerely.
Ask about their childhood: Be a little careful with this one though, you can start by talking about your own happy childhood memories and then encourage them to share something from theirs. Don’t push it if they are not keen because you don’t know what it was like for them.
