16 Questions That’ll Get You a Second Date

Going on a date with someone you barely know for the first time can be both exciting and frightening.

The chances are, your date might not be a talented conversationalist who can lead and create a flowing conversation, but don’t let this ruin your night.

To ensure  the success of your first date and flowing conversation, best thing you can do is to ask questions.

I mean the right questions.

Grilling him/her down on wrong questions like politics, past relationships and money is not only rude but can also be a big turn-off. 

Asking the right questions helps the person open up, so you can find out his/her values, beliefs, and dreams in a very natural way.

Here are 16 conversation starter questions to ask on a first date.

If you are going on a date with someone you know for a long time, skip all the questions you already know the answers to, and focus on the ones you genuinely want to know.
