Here Are 6 Great First Date Questions That Can Bond Him To You
“What’s been the best day of your year so far and why?”
This is a sensational question that should see a guy light up and talk about a day that meant the world to him. As he does, you’re going to learn about some of the stuff that really matters to him. The only problem is, it’s a pretty random question if it comes out of nowhere. So, like all first date questions, ask this when he’s talking about something he’s loved or something that otherwise puts it into context.
Here’s how this could play out:
You: So, you’ve been working hard. Have you had time to have fun lately?
Him: Yeah, actually, I got out last Sunday to a go-kart day with the boys and it was so much fun. Great seeing the boys and it’s been a couple of years since I’ve karted.
You: I haven’t tried karting but I can’t wait to! That sounds like an awesome day, but what’s been the best day of your year so far and why?
“If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?”
When you’ve already established that you both like traveling, this is a great question and one you’ll both want to vibe on for a while. However, it’s going to sound too weird if you throw it out there in the middle of a chat about the menu.
The topic of travel is likely to come up, so wait for that to happen before asking the question:
You: You travel a lot right? Didn’t you just get back from a trip?
Him: Yep, I just got back from a trip to Ayers Rock! Loved learning about the aboriginal culture and the way they live. They’re so tuned in with the land. I’m off to the UK in a couple of months too, which I can’t wait for!
You: That’s so cool, Ayers Rock is definitely on my bucket list and I love the UK. Ok, so you’ve traveled to all these places. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?
“If you were a superhero, which power would you choose and why?”
This question is really random, but so much fun to get into! Again, you can’t bring it up out of anywhere, but who’s to say superheroes can’t pop up in everyday conversations, as easily as this:
You: I just watched Aquaman on the plane home last week – really cool action scenes underwater! Have you seen it?
Him: Sounds very cool. I have no idea what Aquaman is, but underwater action scenes sound cool anyway.
You: Oh my god, you don’t know Aquaman?! What happened to your childhood, or you just don’t do super heroes?
Him: I did superheroes…I watched Smallville.
You: Hahaha, you totally just watched it for Lana didn’t you?
You: Yeah, well I can’t lie, I even had a crush on her. Tell me, if you were a superhero, which power would you choose and why?
“What are the top things you’re most proud of achieving?”
Men love being able to flaunt their achievements and do a little chest-beating to impress you. So, why not give him the opportunity to do that, with a question that also lets you know what motivates him?
To avoid revealing that it’s on your list of prepared questions, wait until a natural scenario like this comes up:
You: How did you end up doing sales when you started out as such a quiet kid?
Him: It’s actually a cool story. I really had to push myself for a lot of years to get myself out there and I was the worst salesman on the team for over a year. I kept persisting though and it’s now the second year straight I’ve been able to top the charts. So, I’m pretty proud of what I’ve been able to accomplish.
You: Wow, you should be, that’s awesome. So, what would you say are the other top things you’re most proud of achieving in your life?
