A first date can be nerve-racking for anyone, but with a little bit of organisation, you can make the experience as stress free as possible by preparing and thinking about questions you might want to ask your date.
Dating apps and websites are useful because you can use it specifically to search by location, such as Cambridge dating site, Kent dating site or Hampshire dating site. However, modern day dating is especially tricky due to the growth of apps and dating websites. Possibly due to how effortless it can be to meet new people, so people may not be forthcoming with wanting to create a genuine and real connection when meeting people. Another added bonus is, you can tailor your search by age group, there are many websites with targeted audiences, such as those who have specific hobbies or interests, or age and location specific, for example, over 50s dating Dorset and over 50s dating Hertfordshire.
By asking your date questions, you are showing that you are open to getting to know someone and are interested in what they have to say. I personally love learning about other peoples experiences, such as your date may like a certain genre of music.
I’ve thought up these 5 handy questions you can ask on your first date:
- Have you travelled much? If so, where?
- (If they haven’t travelled, ask them…) Where is your dream destination?
- Do you have any hobbies?
- Do you have a favourite band/musician/artist?
- What would the perfect day consist of for you?
Obviously, don’t overwhelm your poor date with 50,000,000 questions. Otherwise you might scare them off! Try to ask them relevant questions as the conversation is naturally flowing. Your date should also want to learn things about you, so this is a good way of ensuring a two way conversation on your first date.
