Oftentimes we wonder what to do in dating and how to date a man. We struggle to find words to say on the first date. We don’t know how to act and we are not prepared. This is why we are so nervous for the first date. So, if you want to have fun in dating; especially on your first date; it’s important to come prepared. Having an idea of things you can talk about before ever going on the date in the first place is a great starting place.
No.1′How was your day?’
This conversation starter is perfect to avoid embarrassing silence. People have no problem talking about themselves especially when it comes to work and their daily schedule. This question works magic with your conversation and creates the impression that you’re really interested in everything about the lifestyle of your date.
No.2 Past Conversations
Though it might be your first date, probably you’ve met before. Use the past conversations and events as the perfect subject for small talk.
Ask your date about where he was when you phoned him last time. You can also find out more about his favorite travel destinations and other details.
No.3 Talk About Not Talking
Silence can be pretty embarrassing. Therefore, why not have fun while mentioning that it is difficult to find a theme you both enjoy.
It will definitely make you more relaxed and you can also make a few jokes on this subject.
No.4 Questions with Open Ending
Always ask questions that have an open ending. Skip those ones that can be answered with ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Avoid creating the atmosphere of an interrogation and let him do the talking instead.
No.5 Talk about the Place You’re In
Ask him whether he is a regular customer there and what are other places he likes to visit in your town or other cities. This is a perfect conversation starter if you wish to rule out the chance of running out of any subjects for delightful small talks.
No.6 Make Them Smart and Useful
If you have a problem, go ahead and ask them for any advice. Make sure these problems will still preserve your spotless reputation and these are related to job or hobbies. Skip topics such as family conflicts, exes and other personal problems. If you’ll have the communication skills to make him feel useful and confident, you’ll earn the privilege of a second date.
You wouldn’t go into a job interview unprepared, and if you want to make a great first impression you shouldn’t go into a first date unprepared either. It’s always a great idea to think of conversation topics before you meet with him; and have a backup plan if things go south. What kind of things do you plan for on a first date?
