Some of you may be thinking that this question means the guy is trying to plan a future date for us. There is no faster way to make me feel like I’m failing at life than to ask me why I’m single.I really wish you were right, but that’s what makes this question extra annoying: The same guys who ask me what I to do for fun will turn around in two weeks, and ask me what I would like to do for our first date, even though I’ve given them a list of things I do for fun. I mean, what is the right answer to a question like this?The fear is real, I get that, I’ve felt it many times!You are anxious and going out on a date with a relative stranger can feel awkward.Some of the questions ranging from serious to silly, that are used in speed dating are as follows: You must remember to be confident. For many people, putting together a dating profile is the easy bit (although believe me, there are plenty who find this task nearly impossible).So, to take the pressure off, arm yourself with some great questions to ask your date.
As a coach I listen a lot more than I talk, it’s the nature of what I do.It’s also a strategy that works well if you find yourself nervous.People, on the whole, love talking about themselves.I was having brunch with some girlfriends the other day, and we got on the subject of first dates. It's a generic question that breeds generic answers, and doesn’t really give you additional insight into who I am.While we all had different experiences, there was one thing we all agreed on: There are a few questions we are absolutely of hearing from guys on a first date. Asking me what I “do for fun” kind of makes me feel like I’m on an interview, not a date.
