5 convo starters for your first-ever date


AT LAST! Those hidden glances, oh-so-casual arm touches and endless "Hey :)" text have paid off—your crush has finally asked you out. It might have seemed impossible, but turns out the whole getting-him-to-like-you thing was the easy part. Yikes. Now that you’re finally on the date, you actually have no idea what to say.

Sound familiar? Don't freak.  Try one of these five fab conversation starters and say see-ya to the silence.

1. "What’s your favorite food?"

If you’re at a restaurant, avoid those awkward moments and ask him what his favorite food is. Even cuter? See if you can guess what food he might choose on the menu. This is an easy way to get to know a little more about him and flirt a little without getting too serious.

2. "Do you have any brothers or sisters?"

Pretty much everyone has something to say about their families. It's the greatest common denominator! This sneaky question can also reveal a lot about your guy's personality—if he's a big sweetheart, a protective brother, etc.

3. "What's the craziest thing you've ever done?"

This is a perfect way to find out something that may have taken *years* to come out in normal conversation. Maybe your man is an adrenaline junkie, a dirt bike buff or just a guy that did a crazy dare involving a little too much hot sauce. Don't be afraid to spill your secrets, too.

4. "I bet you can’t make me laugh, Try telling me a joke."

Every girl loves a guy that can make her laugh and every guy loves a girl that can make him laugh. Enough said. 

5. "What was the last song you listened to?"

Even if you don’t share the same taste in music, it’s still awesome to know what he likes and doesn't like. If you do share the same musical taste, you'll have plenty to talk about, and if you don't, you'll have plenty to teach each other.

What's your go-to conversation starter on a date?
