15 Conversation Starters for Your First Date

These are just some suggestions to prevent that uncomfortable silence descending on your first date. As long as they are asked in a smiling, casual way (not like an interview grilling!) they could lead to some interesting discussions :-)

Only ask the ones you feel comfortable with – I particularly like the apocalypse one because it’s my secret belief that all men have made a plan for this ;-)

  1. Did anything nice happen to you today?
  2. What made you smile today?
  3. Would you survive an apocalypse? How?
  4. Did you learn anything interesting today/lately?
  5. What challenged you today/this week?
  6. If you didn’t do what you do now (for work), what would you like to do instead? Why?
  7. If you had the chance to be a teacher tomorrow, what would you teach the class?
  8. What did you want to be when you were younger? Why?
  9. What is the most important rule you live by?
  10. What is one thing you hope to achieve before the year is over?
  11. What do you do to have fun?
  12. Do you have a skill you plan to master this year? Or sometime in the future?
  13. Where do you like to go to eat/What’s your favourite food? Do you like cooking?
  14. What was the funniest thing that happened today/this week?
  15. Do you do any sports?

Can you add to this list? I'd love to hear your suggestions!
