Where great relationships begin, or stumble into awkward, dead-end conversation.
The key to creating a solid first date experience is the art of banter, which begins with asking meaningful questions.
Great questions, asked well, give you and your date plenty of material to work with—and endless conversations to explore.
One thing you really don’t have is the luxury of time. The trick is to select from among these the questions that are closest to your heart and whose answers are important to you.
If you are tongue-tied, you are out of the picture. You must go about the dating event with a positive attitude. Also remember never to be tongue-tied and paralyzed if you can't remember the important questions; there are so many inane things to discuss and enjoy!
No one wants to date some one who does not talk, is boring or nervous.
So dating experts advise that short of having a paper full of questions, you must be ready with a list of interesting, impressive and enjoyable questions that will keep the conversation thriving in those five-ten minutes.
If you don't truly care about the answer, then any question will fall flat. Avoiding yes or no questions creates organic conversation, and allows you and your date to really get to know each other.
Plus, you can tailor any question to avoid the dreaded one-word answer and keep the conversation going so long as you're aware of your phrasing.
And lastly, your questions should blend into conversation naturally, building on the most positive points.
