While dating is all fun and joyful, it, often, is stressful too. Especially in the first few months of the relationship. It is hard to get to know new people and we are never sure of how much information we should give out, especially on a first date.
Dating doesn’t have to be forever, and you are free to come and go as you please. But, if you are looking for a long term relationship, it is better to head-on with a set of questions.
These are five questions we believe every woman should ask on a first date to weed out the insecure guys with bad intentions.
#1. What is your favorite memory?
Getting to know their past is key here, besides, asking about the favorite memory is the best way to spark a convo and make that awkwardness fade away. It allows a lot of follow up questions. You’ll get to see if he has a sense of humor or if he holds grudges. And more importantly, you will be able to gauge if he is interesting or not.
#2. Do you read?
This is a good conversation topic for a first date. Does not matter whether you read on a regular basis or not, you can ask this question on a first date. Ask about his favorite books and the worst book he has ever read. You can learn a lot about people when you discover their dislikes and dislikes, and asking about their reading habits is the best way to do so. And don’t forget, do not be judgemental about what they read.
#3. What is something you want to accomplish?
Wondering how you can ask about his future plans without being perceived as coming on too strong? Ask him about what he wants to accomplish. Ask about future plans, ask about one thing they want to accomplish. It will give you a chance to explore what kind of a person he is. Also, guys who are on dates for flings and one-night-stands won’t be interested in talking about the future. So pay attention.
#4. Who is your favorite person?
If his favorite person is his drinking buddy Joy, then maybe he is not the one for you. If it is his Uncle Sam with whom he grew up, then you have a keeper. Also, watch out for the guys who say their mom is their favorite person – that sounds like a great answer, but unless they can back it up with some stories or a reason why they might be just feeding you a line.
#5. What makes you happy?
Very few people know what actually makes them happy. So if he can answer this question, you can bet that he knows a lot of other things about himself too.
Guys who can answer these questions have probably done some soul searching. And these are the kind of guys you wanna date.
