Great conversation starters for a first date

Great conversation starters for a first date

Try these creative conversation starters to discover more about your date…

  • What’s the oddest thing you’ve eaten?

They say food is the way to a man’s heart, so you may be keen to learn about your date’s culinary skills and preferences. Try “what’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten” as an alternative to asking about their favourite food for a more thoughtful answer. 

  •  Which song sums you up? 

Rather than asking the age old question of “what sort of music do you like?” or “what’s your favourite song?”, why not ask your date to sum up their personality or life in a song?

  • If you could do anything, what what would you do?

This question is simple but prompts conversation of your date’s aspirations and what’s important to them - do you share similar ideals?

  • What would your specialist subject be?

This question requires some thought, a longer answer and a real glimpse of what your date knows and where their strengths lie.

This will show if your date is fun and easy-going and also present you with the opportunity to pick up on points like their hobbies. 

  • What’s the most amazing place you’ve ever visited? 

Learn about your date’s life experiences and passions, what they have done throughout their lives and what’s important to them.

Exchange stories about your travels, favourite experiences or simply the sights you’d love to see one day.
