What are Some Conversation Topics for First Dates?

You have found someone to go out on a first date with you. This is an exciting time hanging out with someone new and fun. What are some conversation topics that you can bring upon your first date? There are a ton of things you should not bring up like ex-girlfriends or boyfriends. The topics you need to bring up are the ones that are fun and all about what they have seen or done. You want the questions to roll asking them about their life. People love to talk about themselves so ask the questions then listen.

You need some ideas on things to ask here is a list of some good ones.

Ask about the weather

This is the wrong question to ask so don’t start here. I put this one in for fun knowing that someone asked a date this at some point in the world.

Would you go on an RV trip across the country?

You can get to know if that person is adventurous with this question. It will also let you know if they like to travel. If this goes well you can ask further questions about traveling.

Where have you traveled?


You will know if they like traveling so stay on that subject if they showed interest in the first question about the RV trip.

I know you live in the city what do you like about living there?

You can understand a lot about someone with this question. Where someone lives tells you what they like or what places attract them and why.

If you had 50 million dollars what would you do?

You can see if they would spend it all on themselves or use that money to help others. Hopefully, most people would do both using some for themselves and help others in need.

What makes you laugh the most?

Laughing can really solidify a connection with someone. I know because one of my first dates with my wife we were laughing so hard looking through books at a bookstore. It was so much fun.

If you could just transport anywhere in the world right now where would you go?

This question will let you know where they would like to travel and their interests. I know personally, I like going to beaches for my travel vacations.

Do you have a favorite sport?

Not everyone likes sports but I would still ask the question because you never know. You can find out their favorite team to see if you both like the same teams. Hopefully, you do not find out you both like rival teams.

What is the number one thing that drives you nuts?

The question will give you some insight on what not to do if you like this person. If you do not like them then maybe you should do the thing they hate. Just kidding it would be best just do not go on a date again.

What is your favorite animal and why?

You will see if they like the same animals you do. This is important especially if they have pets and you are allergic to pet dander. Down the road, this will cause some serious issues in a relationship.

Favorite animals

What’s the most spontaneous thing you have ever done?

This will tell you if they are adventurous and a little wild depending on the answer. Being spontaneous is great so if your date is that way then life could be surprising.

Anything you want to do before you are old or dead?

The old bucket list of things people want to do before they leave the earth. Everyone should have this and if they do not well then maybe they are going to be boring. This should tell you what kind of life they want to live.

What is your favorite movie?


If your favorite movie is Avengers hopefully they will be also like superhero movies so you can dress up going to Comic-Con in superhero costumes.

What is your favorite music?

This should be interesting to see what they like to listen to. This should give you some idea of the type of person they are.

What is there to know about your family?

The family is so important so this will be good to understand how they were raised. Maybe they have a bunch of siblings or maybe they are an only child. This type of question shows you want to learn more about her family background.

The number one fear you have is?

I am afraid of being buried alive. I think that would be high on the list for most people. You can at least see what fears they have so you will not take them on a rollercoaster if they have fears of it.

Do you wish you were better at what?

Maybe they wish they were better at sports. Whatever is sais you will know at least one thing they are not good at.

What is your passion?

What really motivates you every day to do what you do? The passion in your life what is it?

You have any hidden skills or talent I should know about?

People will love talking about how good they are at something. They will tell you all about what they are good at and why.

Just sick back and listen to them tell why they are talented. This will go a long way to connect with them if the first date goes well.

What’s something you wish you could do or a special talent you wish you had?

See how they respond which can give you insight into things they may want to learn.

Maybe they would like to be a trapeze artist but they are afraid of heights. The question will open up a whole host of things that could lead to more fun questions and answers.

In the future where would be the ultimate place for you to live?

Hopefully, they do not say next year I want to move to Hawaii. This would mean you would not be dating long if the relationship progressed.

You can at least see if they want to live in an area you would be ok to live in. They may want to live in the city and you prefer the country so how would you resolve if the relationship progressed.

What was the last big event they bought a ticket for?

This would help you to see if maybe their interest is aligned with yours. It’s also fun just to see what events people go to and if they had fun. A good question to keep them talking about what they do or like in life.

There you go some conversation topics you can bring up on any first dates you have in the future. You can actually use several of these for the first, then some for second and so on till you pretty much know everything about them.

That is the goal of dating finding out if you’re compatible then really getting to know each other. The best way to do that is with lots of questions.
