First dates; often the first encounter to share with someone new and nearly always the most nerve-wracking. Sometimes exciting, at times, enlightening - a first date opens the door to truly getting to know someone, but what about those awkward silences?
Let’s face it, it happens. Sometimes we trip on our words, fumble with our sentences and lose our once perfectly intact human ability to talk. It might be nerves, lack of interest or simply getting lost in the whirlwind of romance.
Whatever the reason for those conversational lulls, we’ve compiled this handy list of first-date questions, so you can keep the chat flowing, while asking all the right things to find out what you really want to know.
Keep in mind that first dates are meant to be fun, not forced, so don’t interview your date - simply invite them in to talk about the things and people that matter to them most.
After all, nobody wants to get six months knee-deep into a relationship only to find out you’re not both searching for the same thing, right?
