Your time is precious—wouldn’t you agree? So would you rather learn everything (or most) of what you need to know about someone in one date, or four dates? The answer should be obvious and yet, so many of us leave first dates feeling like we didn’t really get to know someone. Or, we leave feeling a little confused about something they said, or uncertain about what their intention was behind this or that sentiment. Communication with someone you just met is, naturally, a bit clunky. But if you ask the right questions, you can learn most of what you need to know about someone on a first date. Asking the right questions isn’t just for your benefit, though. Any man worth his salt will appreciate a woman who asks questions that help them make the most of this date. Here are first date questions that will impress any man.
What are your best friends like?
People love to talk about their friends—the shenanigans they’ve gotten into, and the lovable, quirky traits they exhibit. When a man talks about what he loves in his friends, you learn a lot about what traits are important to him in all personal relationships. You’ll also really activate him and you’ll see him light up—it instantly greases the conversation.
