You know where you’re going to meet him. You know what you’re going to wear. But in all of your first date preparation, do you know what questions to ask him? Chances are, you’re going to feel a wee bit nervous, and maybe there’s going to be some awkward silences. So, the best way to get to know someone on your first date is to come prepared with these questions. Here are three questions to ask on a first date.
What are you family and friends like?
Sometimes, your first date can feel a bit too much like an interview. And you can really put someone on the spot by asking them so many questions about himself. So, instead of focusing on him per se, ask him about things that are important to him, like his friends and family.
When you hear him describe his family and friends, you’ll get an idea of his other relationships, and that gives you an idea of how your relationship with him might be.
How do you like your job?
You might already now what his job is, or you might not. But instead of asking him where he works and what he does, take it to a more personal level and ask if him he actually likes it.
His answer will help you see how he approaches work he’s either passionate or disinterested in. It can also be a nice segway into his dreams and future plans.
What sort of things make you happy?
This might seem like touchy-feely conversation, but what makes a person happy says a lot about their values and personality. And besides, if you find out that you and he find happiness in the same things, you might just want to go for a second date.
