Questions to ask a man when you first start dating
I’d like to help you out before that next big dinner or coffee by offering some creative first date questions you can use if you need to stir up conversation.
What’s the most embarrassing thing that happened to you in elementary school? If your house was on fire, what’s the first thing you’d grab to save?
If there’s a lull in the conversation, insert a creative question or two and the conversation should begin to flow.
These questions come from dating coach/matchmaker Rachel Greenwald’s, “Have Him at Hello: Confessions from 1,000 Guys About What Makes Them Fall in Love…or Never Call Back” (© Random House 2008).
When you were little, what did you dream of being when you grew up?
What’s the luckiest thing that’s ever happened to you?
You want to get closer to him or just have a good conversation.
But: What to do when you run out of things to talk about? If you could change anything about you or your life, what would you change now? If you could change one thing in your past, what would you change? If you could change your name to anything in the world, what would you change it to? If you could take a girl to anyplace in the world, where would it be? What body part would you change on yourself if you could? If your house was on fire and you could only save one thing, what would it be?
