10 Questions to Ask on a First Date

First dates are awkward. Sometimes painfully so. But they’re also the best opportunity you have to get to know your date and your compatibility with them. So ask questions! And if you’re lost on what questions to ask, here’s a few to get you started...

 

What do you hate most about dating?

This question is a great ice-breaker to ease the awkward tension in the first few minutes of a first date. Even if it doesn’t lead to a laugh, it’ll at least give you an idea of what to avoid doing.

 

Are you a cat person or a dog person?

Your date’s answer to this question can give you great insight into their personality type. If they prefer dogs, they’re most likely more extroverted and energetic. If they are a cat person, they’re most likely introverted and more sensitive.

 

If you won $1 million dollars, what would you do with it?

Whether your date wants to buy all the clothes in the world or wants to spend the money seeing the world, this question could show you not just their spending habits but their aspirations as well.

 

What do you like to do when you’re not working?

This will give you an idea of what kinds of hobbies your date enjoys, and more importantly, whether they are compatible with yours.

 

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

How your date answers this question will show you how adventurous they are or are willing to be. If they don’t see themselves moving more than a kilometre away from where they grew up, then you can probably guess that they wouldn’t be comfortable moving across the world.

 

What is your best memory?

If your date gets specific when answering this question, they are most likely a very sentimental person. If they can’t really remember their best memory, they are more likely to live in the moment and not get tied down by the past.

 

Which do you prefer, little things or grand gestures?

If you’re interested in pursuing a deeper relationship with your date, this question will help you understand what kind of romance they like.

 

Who’s the biggest influence in your life?

If your date answers with a family member, then you’ll know who to impress when it comes time to meet the family.

 

Do you see the glass as half empty or half full?

Their answer to this question will show you whether they are an optimist, pessimist, or realist.

There you go, these questions will help you get an insight into your date’s personality and life! So, go on, find someone to date on Jodi and ask away!
