Your first date conversation has a big effect on the impression you make on your date. And as you know, you never get a second chance to make a first impression or create a perfect first date with someone.
In addition to making a good impression, your conversation is important also because it helps you learn more about that person by asking questions. After all, you want to see whether you and him/her have enough things in common to go on a second date or not.
So what should you talk about? What questions should you ask? How should you keep the conversation going in a fun and relaxing way for both of you? Here are 3 tips for a successful conversation…
Tip #1: Ask Good, Fun Questions
Questions are a great way to keep the conversation going. They will also help you learn more about this person so you can find out how much you have in common and if you’re compatible enough to enter an intimate romantic relationship.
Here are 3 great first date questions that will help you keep the conversation going in a fun way, and also will tell you a lot about your date’s personality and lifestyle. Also, be sure to listen to your date carefully and really pay attention to him/her. Show your date you are curious to know more about him by asking follow-up questions about what he just said.
It will also make a very good impression on your date that you are really paying attention to him/her.
Tip #2: Keep the Focus on Your Date
Be curious about your date. Ask him/her questions and then pay full attention when he/she answers.
It will really make a good impression on your date and will make him/her like you, because you showed that you are a thoughtful and polite person who values other people’s opinions and lives – not just him/herself. Because you know how rare these kinds of people are who really listen to you when you speak about yourself. I mean really listen.
Also by asking questions about them and listening carefully, you get the chance to learn much more about that person and decide if you like him/her and want to start a relationship with him/her. Most people (especially men) keep talking about themselves and things they have accomplished while neglecting her opinions and forgetting to ask about her.
They just want to impress their date and show her they are better than the other guys she has dated, but the results will be the opposite. So remember to keep the focus on your date!
Tip #3: Keep Your First Date Short and Fun
The purpose of a first date is to get to know each other a little and get a general idea of the other person’s personality and way of life. So that you can decide if there’s enough chemistry and compatibility between you two.
If you like this person in the first place, you’ll always have time for a second, third, and more dates to get to know them more and more. So don’t rush into things. Also avoid talking about risky topics like politics, religion, your or your date’s exes, and so on.
So make your first date short and simple. Have fun, and enjoy talking to each other and being together. Wish you a lot of success on your next first date!
