Not sure what kind of things to talk about on a first date? Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Places to visit — Ask them if there are any places that they have been dying to visit. They will usually delight in telling you all the different cities they’ve wanted to see, and the things they want to do. If you’re a travelled person, you may be able to share some of your favorite experiences from around the world. Just don’t come off as condescending!
- Focus in life — This is getting into the realm of personal, but if you feel comfortable enough with the person, go for it! Ask them what they are currently focused on the most: their professional career, their gym life, their family, etc. Talk about their goals in life, their five-year plan, and anything else that gets them to tell you a bit more about themselves. This is a great question to go beyond the small talk!
- Friends — Everyone has a good friend they love to talk about, and often stories of that friend will involve some pretty crazy antics. Talk about their friend for a while, and share stories of your friends as well. You can get to know a lot about a person by their friends, so listen carefully! If you end up going out, you’ll need to be able to get along with those friends.
- Perfect vacation — Yet another fun, slightly personal question you can ask. You can have them tell you about the ideal vacation, including where they would go, what they would do, the activities they would engage in, and so on. You’ll find out A LOT about their passions and hobbies thanks to this question.
