6 Questions to Ask During a First Date

Dating is a rare phenomenon nowadays.  We are currently living in a generation where technology is the main form of communication, and when we do meet face-to-face it is mostly to hookup.  Because of this, people do not feel the need to date anymore. But if you have a date coming up, then you are the exception to the rule and kudos to you. So after trying on 10 different outfits, curling or straightening your hair, making sure your eyebrows are "on fleek," and taking a final look in the mirror: it's date time. We can all admit that first dates can be awkward, especially ones at a restaurant, the main dilemma in these situations is trying to figure what to talk about. Here are 6 questions to get a conversion going:

 

1. What are your 5 favorite albums?

Does your date like the twang of country, the steady rhythm of the drum and bass, or the bumping beat of dirty south music.  Plus, maybe they'll be really into that singer or group you love that you thought nobody else had ever heard of.

 

2.  Do you like travel, and where would you like to go?

This question reveals a person’s sense of adventure.

Maybe your plans will coincide with theirs and if they don’t, it’s definitely a way to find out their idea of a good time.

3. Are you the oldest, the youngest, or a middle child?
