Very often, we don’t actually think of things to say on a date beforehand, apart from the usual questions, of course. You ask questions until the questions start to repeat themselves or you start talking about how your grandma loves the weather. Eventually you run out of topics to discuss, sit and gawkily stare at each other. We’ve all had our share of experiences with this situation. You really feel stupid that you want to get to know someone, but you don’t know what to say to her.
In order to know about a lady, you have to talk to her. There are things that you might want to know about a woman, but you do not want to ask her directly. This is where interesting conversations come in handy. Through your discussions can find creative ways of finding out things about her. Get to know her, ask her about her favorite TV shows, celebrities, books, games and so on. There are lots of things to talk about, but remember that not everything is appropriate to discuss on the first date. Many men get baffled by this and before they get to know anything about their dates, the date ends. Follow this guide to ensure that you don’t run out of topics again. She will certainly find these topics interesting if you ever run out of things to talk about.
Discuss the basics first
As you should have already known, start off with introductions first. Ask her about her age, her town, school, things that are important to her. You can tell her a few things about yourself, but it’s best to let her do the asking on that part. Just know this rule: too little personal information is bad and too much personal information is bad. Keep discussions about your personal issues to the minimal. You don’t want to bore her with all the details of your job, your extended family, your chemistry class, and so on.
Talk about money
Girls love to talk about money, especially how they plan to spend it. Have a neat discussion about what she would do with a million bucks. You can always join in and share your own views about spending it. This topic can easily lead to discussions about other things like the best cars to have, places you’d love to live, vacations and so on. Starting a discussion like this would lead to endless possibilities. This can tell you how thrifty or extravagant a woman is and some of her best interests.
Talk about future prospects
Everyone likes to talk about the future- their own future that is. It leaves some glimmer of hope that you can eventually accomplish what you want within the years ahead. Ask her what she hopes to accomplish 10 years down the line. Through her desires, you can see exactly where your relationship might be headed if you decided to be with her.
Talk about your favorite or weirdest treats
Don’t just talk about boring meals. Instead, talk about unusual treats. They are unique and fun things to discuss. You could start off this conversation by asking her if she ever tried bacon ice-cream or something similar. Share your fun food experience with her even if you have to make them up. But don’t gross her out with nasty food ideas. You will be surprised at how interesting the discussion gets and you’d both be laughing about those weird treats in no time.
Talk about vacation destinations
Who doesn’t like a vacation? Ask her if she has ever travelled abroad and where. Then discuss places like local and international cities that you visited. The conversation can lead to a diversification of topics. You can talk about local stuff like unusual and exciting theme parks, Vegas vacations and places you never knew existed until recently. Even more interestingly, discuss super exclusive islands, Caribbean getaway dreams and Amazon jungle fantasies. Be careful though, topics like these can stir some sensual emotions.
Discuss interesting family facts
Talking about your family does not have to be boring. There are so much drama and fun in the family life that you both would have a few funny tales to tell. You don’t have to tell specific details. Just tell it to be humorous and interesting. You can discuss some weird jinx at your cousin’s wedding, or your dad’s obsession with classic cars. Do not talk about the passing of your grandmother, your incarcerated brother or any other sensitive topic. She will be sure to share some family experiences with you too.
Talk about animals
Provided she likes animals, this could be a great topic for discussion. Ask her about unusual animals she would have as pets and the kind of pets she currently has. Tell her about your pet experiences as well. To get even more interesting, discuss the kind of animals you both would like to be and why. Also, on a more serious note, discuss animal charities that you contribute to, and the type of animals you would like to own in the future.
Conversation is of great importance when it comes to dating. There are so many things to discuss that we really shouldn’t run out of topics. Be creative and be yourself. Do not try to over-impress a girl by your own fantasies; neither should she be disgusted by your thoughts. Listen to her and share. And when you can’t find anything else to talk about, think of these unusual things to discuss.
