First Date Questions To Ask

You’ve made it to the first date, introduced yourself, complained about the weather. Now what? Here are the best questions to ask to avoid any awkward silences, seem interested and really get to know your date…

“If you could travel anywhere, right now, where would you go?”

This one sorts the homebodies from the adventurous. Are they a culture vulture? A booze cruiser or raver? If all goes well, this may be a trip you take together…

“What’s something I wouldn’t guess about you?”

Slightly flirty question, which is great. Hopefully they surprise you with an intriguing fact…

“What are your favourite TV shows?”

This could potentially be a great way to bond. If they happen to have seen the same shows as you – compare notes! If they are shows you’ve never heard of, this is the perfect opportunity to figure out how they like to spend their down time.

“What’s the most spontaneous thing you’ve ever done?

Discover how crazy and fun this person is. Have an answer planned for yourself for the inevitable, “What about you?” follow-up question.

“What were you like as a child?”

This is a way of finding out what kind of upbringing the person had without just coming out and asking. It also gives a great insight into how they perceive themselves.

“What’s the worst pickup line you’ve ever heard/used?”

This should be funny.

Also, if you ever get stuck for stuff to write in your profile, how about answering some of these questions yourself?
