Below are a few colorful suggestions for possible conversation starters.
Here's a good rule to follow: If the answer to your question requires a noun, you likely aren't going to get too much info from a person.
Everyone has a past, and no one has control over where they're born and raised.
Striking up conversation with a perfect stranger while having not-so-secret hope that they end up being the love of your life is sometimes awkward.
It's difficult to strike a balance of genuine conversation while still fishing for specific intel on how compatible you are, and it leaves a lot of us with a rolodex of obvious, cliché questions.
By pushing past the obvious questions you think are “safe,” you get the chance to connect a little quicker and deeper than the average first date meet up.
Below are some hot tips and tweaks for your standard conversation topics to help you get to know one another better.
For example, if you ask “How do you feel about pirates? ” – well, you’ll know they probably aren’t 10s in the humor category. Or if the response to “Which Disney film would you like to push off a very tall cliff?
” is “Oh, I love them ALL,” well, you’ll know they’re liars.
the conversations about travel tended to revolve around great holidays and dream destinations, and that makes people feel good and so appear more attractive to one another. This is how to have smooth first date conversation. Don’t dominate, but don’t be a non-contributor either.
