One of the most nerve-wracking things about a first date is the conversation. Will you get along famously, or will there be lots of awkward pauses or interruptions? Even if both people really like each other, conversation can still be difficult, especially if one person is nervous or an introvert.
However asking a few questions can help with this problem. It will show your date that you are interested in them, and it will help the conversation to flow – but if you decide to do this, you may want to avoid standard, boring “how are you?” questions.
Here are 30 questions you can ask on the first date.
