What are some good topics to converse on your first date? especially if it’s a blind date. I tend to become quiet, ackward and uncomfortable during first dates because I get so damn nervous/shy about meeting new people. What discussions bring out the most of his/her personality? Nothing too serious. Just light, fun and general topics.
Here are the top 10 first date conversation starters and tips you need to know.
As John Cusack proselytized in High Fidelity , on a date, “it’s what you like and not what you are like that matters.” That means movies, music, books, food, and all manner of consumables subject to personal preference. You can get great conversation going with this, and even stumble on things you have in common.
No talk of exes.
Either hers or yours. This is one topic that definitely does not lend itself to a happy, convivial first date atmosphere. Talking about exes inevitably brings in shades of bitterness, anger and animosity, all feelings you should avoid at all costs on a first date.
Listen as much or more than you talk.
Some people consider themselves skilled communicators because they can talk endlessly. But the ability to speak is only one part of the equation—and not the most important part.
Discuss current events
Making small talk about the news, sports or your community can help you understand her knowledge and interests in a variety of topics; however, do exercise caution and keep the conversation positive.
Movies and TV!
Current movies can be a great way to get the ball rolling in a conversation. You can see if they’re interested in heavy topics or lighthearted comedies.
