Questions to Ask on the First Date

First dates can be super fun, exciting, nerve wrecking and a bit awkward especially if you have been off of the dating scene or just shy when it comes to meeting some one new. This can make asking good first date questions challenging. I don’t recommend sitting there in silence therefore I’ve compiled a list of questions you should ask to keep things sparked.

What does your typical day look like?

This sounds a lot better than “what do you do”. To me that almost like asking a person their job title and salary. Simply asking what does your typical day looks like will give you a glimpse of what their occupation may be.

Want to share an embarrassing moment with me?

This is a question I love to ask. It’s a great way for you and the person you’re on a date with to laugh if its a funny moment. It’s also a great way to bring some type of vulnerability and realness to your first date. I like to ask this question because I’m comfortable with answering it as well.

What’s something you want to learn or wish you were better at?

Many of us like to ask “what are your goals”. I think that question is pretty basic and broad. Whenever I’m asked this question I tell people “I want to learn how to cook and become great at it”.

What misconceptions others often have about you?

I think this question will allow that person to express who they are and what they want to be seen as.

What are some random fun facts about you?

Finding out about something interesting about another person that may not come up in regular conversation is a fun way to get to know them. I love knowing what others don’t know. I want to know if you came out of your mothers womb head or feet first LMAO!

What’s something you’re proud of?

When I ask this ..I want to know about your accomplishments. How do they make you feel? Who do you call first when these things come up.

What’s on your bucket list?

Considering the fact that I have a bucket list, I’m interested in knowing if the guy is adventurous and if our list is compatible. I’ve told you there’s something’s on my bucket list that I prefer doing with my partner.

What brings you joy?

This is a genuine question. In case things go further than the first date its always good to know what brings joy to a person so that you can contribute to it.

While preparing to ask these question don’t forget to properly prepare your first date.
