8 Questions to Ask Your Date to Spark Instant Attraction
There is a lot of pressure at the first date: you both have to be charming, intelligent, attractive, and well-mannered. Indeed, dating has two sides: first of all, you have to find out whether you want to develop your relationships or step back. So you should observe the balance between getting all important information without using interrogative methods.
In order to ensure that you learn all needed information while staying polite and charming, here are 8 suitable questions to ask your date.
What do you do for a living and what is your dream job?
Most dates start from the banal question, what do you do for a living? This is interesting to know, but a little boring. If you want to get a broader response, try to ask the question from a different angle. Instead of asking her, what she is currently doing, ask about her dream job. Thus you get insight into her plans, ambitions, and values. Furthermore, you will stand out among other dates who don’t bother to be more creative.
If you are wondering what she is doing for life, the answer will most likely come from her answer.
Have you read any good books recently?
This questions instantly opens up the soul of your date plus you will look more intelligent in her eyes. Common interests will make a conversation more exciting and will help you to discuss tons of questions.
If she doesn’t read at all (which is a warning sign), then you’d better move the conversation further.
Similar to the previous question: what music are you listening to lately?
Similarly, you can ask about music, films, or visual art. Don’t limit yourself and spark conversation about anything from radio podcasts to live concerts and recent art exhibition. Go into any kind of pop culture you both enjoy and keep the conversation going.
What are you most passionate about?
Probably you will get an answer to this question from the previous one. However, if your date is neither into books nor into music, who knows, maybe she prefers traveling? The first date is a perfect chance to know more about her hobbies, so don’t finish it until you have at least some information to decide on your future relationships.
What is the best place in the world you have ever traveled to?
Today you can barely find a person who doesn’t enjoy traveling. Most people will be happy to discuss their favorite places, and this is a perfect chance to know her personality better. Who knows, maybe she is an adventurous person who visits Burning Man every year, loves wild nature and camping, or prefers clubbing and ventures to Berlin every weekend.
What are you expecting from online dating?
It can be useful to know in the very beginning whether you both have similar expectations about your future relationships. Ask her if she is looking for a husband, serious relationships or simply a casual sex partner. Are you ready to start such relationships? At the same time, be clear about what you want in the short-term and long-term perspective.
Do you have any siblings?
This is a common question but certainly should be asked. The family is a fruitful topic to explore during a date. Her family background may bring a lot of information about what she likes and about your compatibility. Be polite about where she is from and who are her family members.
Do you have any plans for the rest of the weekend?
This question is meant to discover what your date usually does for fun and how she usually spends her free time. This way you can learn about her weekly activities. Whether she likes going to the gym, staying home, or going out with her friends for a wild party.
