We did an article recently on 'things to avoid talking about on your first date' and most people demanded we talk about what should be talked about on the first date instead. Fair enough. It's a nervous affair. You've just met her off Tinder or at a bar or even at a friend's party and you've hit it off well and have asked her out for a date. And guess what, she says yes! Let the nervousness settle in and tell yourself you're going to have a blast on your date.
Of course, the usual tricks of the trade like being confident, polite and gentleman like are too old to keep telling you about them, so instead we're going to talk about things you should talk about on your first date with her, to obviously get her interested in you, so you can have a second date!
Here are 5 things you should talk about on your first date.Let Her Know You're Nervous
It's a bit endearing to let her know you're nervous on your first date. It tells her you're confident enough to spill the beans about how you actually feel. Chances are that's she's nervous too, so coming and admitting you're nervous can be a great icebreaker. It just helps take the pressure off.
Women usually don't like men who just talk about themselves or don't talk at all. So keep a balance. Ask her questions and answer her questions as well. If you ask her what she loves doing in her free time, she will ask you the same question back, Just don't go on about it for 30 minutes! Ask her another question, to get to know her better, while she does the same. If you're shy or don't know what to ask, since you're nervous, think of some questions before your date and keep them ready. It's okay to do a bit of homework!
Play A Quick Rapid Fire
If you're a confident guy you can easily play a quick game of rapid fire with her. This is the best way to break the ice and have some fun. You can shoot some questions her way with two choices and get her to answer them, in order to get to know her better. For instance, you can start with 'dogs or cats' and follow up with similar questions.
Talk About A Funny Experience
I am sure you've had plenty of experiences and adventures and you can definitely pull a funny one out and narrate it to her. If you're thinking about how to tickle her funny bone, there isn't a better way to do it than with a story that's absolutely funny. Make sure you narrate it in a way that sounds funny and not lame. If she laughs, you're good to go.
You can pick on cues on what to talk to her about by gauging what she says. So pay very close attention to what she says at all times. If she's talking about what she does, ask her something related to that or talk about something you derive from that, to carry the flow of the conversation. If you have the flow going, you're good for the entire evening. You can have many conversations thereon and end the evening on a good note and a possible second date.
So, in case you're super nervous for your date, don't be. Just be cool and confident and say the right things.
