to be a precursor to an actual relationship, first dates are also mini interviews disguised as social outings, whether we like to admit it or not.
A foolproof way to ensure that conversation will always be flowing is to simply your date things, although—given the fact that we never know how comfortable others are with casual conversation—that might be easier said than done. Have you traveled anywhere cool lately/do you have any trips coming up? Some of these questions may seem silly at first, but they can be very telling.
The trick to successfully vetting a potential suitor on a first date, while simultaneously keeping the energy light and fun, is knowing what questions to ask and how to ask them. Where exactly do you live in [insert your city or town here]? They’ll also further loosen the two of you up and can lead to some funny, entertaining conversation.
