Your first date should be as fun as this


Dates are not special people. Anyone can go on one.

As a matter of fact, everyone deserves to go on dates as it helps you know your date partner better, and increase the chances of a relationship if you both find a common ground and click.

Dates are meant to be fun, as you both converse on a wide range of topics and eventually have fun.

This is where the problem comes in.

There have been far too many reports of guys who were too boring, and girls who do not know how to keep a conversation going, as they do not know but to answer with monosyllabic-answers.

Do not be discouraged if you are not a man of many words, or if you are a shy girl and really have not been  on many dates yet.

Here are questions you can ask, to help you go through a date and come out with smiles on your face at the end of it.

What kind of music do you like to listen to?

Imagine you both love the same kind of music, or have the same best song.

What's your idea of a perfect date?

Watch them speak dreamily about what the perfect means for them. And maybe – just maybe- you both will go on that dream date along the line.

Have you read any good books recently?

This is simply a way to know if they like reading or not. You might be lucky and you both will be readers, and spend one hour talking only about books you have read.

Where in the world would you rather be born in if not Naija?

The answer you get is their favourite country in the world.

What's your dream job?

Simply because too many people would prefer a better job than the one they are doing at the moment.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at work?

You’ll easily find out their hobbies and recreational activities this way. And also, you can easily gauge how much time they will or will not have for you

Do you have anything you don’t know but would love to learn?

You both might be enrolling for  swimming lessons after this question. [LOL]

What's your best joke ever?

You might be lucky and they’ll drop a really funny one that will nearly crack your ribs.

Who in your family are you closest to?

This is a coded way of asking about their family, really. They’ll end up giving ou more details about their family than what you asked.

Which TV show is your favourite?

This is another potential hour of talking about “Game of Thrones,” “Suits,” “Power,” and which is the most ridiculous of “How to Get Away With Murder” and “Scandals.”

Where do you see yourself in a few years?

You might want to be a lot casual with the way you ask this one, so they won’t think you are thinking too far ahead, or reading too much meaning into the first date.

What are you doing this weekend?

You know, let them know you enjoyed this date, and you don’t mind more.
