Meeting someone you’re interested in romantically for a first date can be a nerve-racking experience. Your night will no doubt be filled with uncertainty, from what to wear to where to go for dinner. Putting frivolity aside, however, one of the most important things you can do on a first date is to start a good conversation. Nothing makes a great first impression like being able to break the ice and carry on a friendly discussion. So how do you begin?
A nice starting point is to inquire about sisters and brothers. Be sure to limit your questioning to siblings, since they will often be associated with enjoyable reminiscence of youth. You don’t know what your date’s relationship is with his or her parents, so its best not to ask them. Whether or not your date retains a close alliance with their siblings won’t matter when it comes to relaying affable stories about horsing around with a brother or sister.
Everyone likes to talk about him or herself. That’s why another fantastic topic for discussion is your date’s extra-curricular interests. What sorts of entertainment do they prefer? What types of cuisine are their favorites? Do they like animals, sports, or car racing? Not only will you be having an engaging conversation but you’ll also be learning whether or not the two of you have shared interests, and this, of course, is the main goal of a date.
Career aspirations are always a good topic, as well. No matter if you and your date are several years beyond university or just getting started; we all have ideas about what we want out of our working future. Be sure to pitch-in on this conversation to make your date feel more at ease about sharing their own dreams. Not only will you progress the discussion but you’ll both benefit by learning about each other’s ambitions.
There’s no need for full discussions the first time you meet with someone you’re interested in. Make an effort to brighten the mood with humor by telling an embarrassing story. Ask your date to share one in return. Make suggestions, like an interview for a job that didn’t turn out as planned, or even an atrocious date they experienced. You only have one meeting to make the most important impression: The first one.
