You may be wondering what to discuss with a lady on your first date. You don’t want to sit there like a bump on a log, but you also don’t want to say the wrong thing and scare her off. There are some topics you can always be sure are good topics to bring up on a date.
Everyone likes to hear about childhood memories; from your parents funny holiday traditions to your favorite pet growing up. Even if your childhood wasn’t all that great, you’ve still got some interesting stories to tell. Mention your siblings, your childhood home, and how you spent your summer vacations with grandma. This will make her feel like she knows you better by the end of the date.
Who doesn’t love animals? While you may come across a woman who hates cats, but loves dogs, or vice versa; everyone loves some kind of pet. Some people even keep exotic pets like peacocks. Just don’t bring up how much you love to eat animals if she happens to be a devout vegetarian. The night will probably not end well. Broach the subject by asking her if she has animals and take it from there.
If you went to college, this is a great topic to discuss. Everyone did something crazy when they went to college, and you probably have a funny story to share about college. If you didn’t go to college, but maybe went to a technical school or started to work right after high school, you can always talk about experiences doing that, as well. All life experience makes for a great story.
Who doesn’t like to talk about food? In fact, if you are out on a dinner date then this is one of the easiest topics to discuss because food is already involved. Ask any woman what her three favorite foods are, and you could probably fill a night talking about what kinds of food you both like, what kinds you hate, and what kinds you both want to try. It could even be that you’re both closet foodies and you’ve just figured out what you’ll be doing on your next date! If you like to cook, or there is a great restaurant you would like to take her to, incorporate that into the conversation.
Where do you want to go in the future? Where is your dream vacation? Have you been anywhere recently? You might find you’ve both been in another country/state/city at the same time and maybe even crossed each other’s paths and never known it, and might never have known it if you never talk about it. Tell her about where you have been and where you’d like to go. Life is full of adventure and people who love to travel want to hear about your adventures.
When taking a woman out on a date for the first time, these are some great first-date topics to keep in your back pocket.
