Date questions are super tricky. You don’t want to sound contrived or interrogate the poor guy, but you need to know if this person is worth sticking around for. Here are some questrions that are not only useful but they’re fun conversation starters. They’re not awkward to hear or hard to ask, either. Keep ˜em in mind for dates of all kinds.
When you were a kid, what did you used to love?
Childhood memories can be fun to talk about, and they reveal a lot about a person’s past without getting too heavy or weird. If you’re close in age, you’ll probably get to bond over some nostalgic topics. Leave this one open ended, so you can talk about any activity, game, food, band, etc.
What could you blow an entire rainy afternoon doing?
Walking around bookstores? Watching 90’s flicks? Writing music? What we do when we’re house bound on a rainy afternoon says a lot about our pleasure-style. (It also presents you with an opportunity to show off your intellectual side a bit if you want when you answer.)
What’s something you’ve always wanted to be really good at?
This gives you a segue to talk goals and accomplishments. I used to be really into yoga but I think I’d rule at kick boxing … How lofty are his goals? What is he doing to make his dreams a reality?
What activity always clears your head?
How a person unwinds sheds light on their lifestyle in general. Do their relaxation strategies involve distractions or more contemplative methods? Do they prefer to clear their head around people or alone? How often do they allow themselves / need to unwind? What happens if they don’t?
When does time fly for you?
Losing track of time doing something means we probably genuinely enjoy it and are probably really good at it. These are most likely to be the things that come naturally to us.
