Saturday, February 23rd, 2019

If you have made it to the stage of going on a first date, then is means that your dating profile and photos worked and now is the time to get to know each other face-to-face. Here are some questions that will help you to find out more about one another.

Small talk

“How are you?” and “Did you find the place alright?” might sound like mundane questions, but they help you to relax into the conversation before moving on to more in-depth questions.


Asking “So, have you had a busy week?” is usually a good way to move into talking about what you do for a living. If not, you can ask outright “What do you do for a living” and asking “Do you enjoy your job?” will tell you about their ambitions.


Asking about their family will give you an insight into their upbringing and what they would like to see if their future. For example, they might say that they enjoyed growing up in a large family and that they would like to have a big family of their own one day. Or, they might have seen their parents get divorced and may be vary of getting married.


Talking about hobbies helps people to relax and you will get to see a spark of excitement as they talk about what they really enjoy doing. It will also enable you to share conversation about common interests, which will help you to bond with one another.


Talking about holidays is not just a way to pass the time with your hairdresser, it is also a great way to find out about what your date enjoys doing and will tell you if your holiday styles are compatible. Asking if they have any holiday plans will tell you whether they prefer city breaks, long haul trips, or winter sun holidays. It will also lead to other discussions such as what they enjoy eating and whether they are a shopaholic or not.
