For most men and women, the hardest part of a date is knowing what to talk about on a first date, especially during those first few minutes, when it’s all jitters and one-foot hops.
Those first few minutes. If you’ve always wondered what what to talk about on a first date or the first few minutes after meeting her, here are a few pointers that you could use.
And if you know how to work your way around these simple questions, you could probably have enough to talk about, for the whole day. And she’d love you and be impressed by you, definitely!
I’m so happy to see you. So you bump in or pull a chair back for her on your first date, good. The first thing you elaborate about after both of you are ready to talk is this one line. Talk about how happy you are to see her, or how nice it is to have bumped in to her. It’s just a sentence, yes, but one that warms both of you up for the good things to come.
I love that! So she looks great. You’re all giddy with excitement to be around her. So tell her about it. Saying “you look great!” is a dull compliment. Go one step further.
Is it her hair? Her dress? Or is it something else that you can mention on a first date? Complimenting your date tells her that the effort she’s taken has been noticed and appreciated. If she’s wearing a red dress, you could mention the detail about red being your favorite color, or something along those lines.
On my way here. Did you have a long day at work, or were you unexpectedly delayed? Or did you notice anything fascinating on the way to see her? A glorious sunset that reminded you of her beautiful face, perhaps? Talk about anything interesting that happened to you on the way.
That’s a few good minutes to charm her and keep the conversation going. And she too might add in a few details about anything interesting she saw on her way to the date.
How was your day? Show your interest in her life within the first few minutes of the date by speaking about her day. Not only will that keep the conversation light and friendly, it can open up details for a lot more things to ask as the date progresses. And she would feel nice when she sees that her date is quite interested in her everyday life.
Look around you. You’d probably have a lot of things to talk about by now, but in case you still haven’t been able to pick pointers, look around you and talk about something interesting. If you’re at a restaurant, you could talk about why you like the place, an incident that occurred there, about the ambience, or just about anything else.
Likewise, talk about something that’s taken your fancy wherever you are, even if you aren’t at a restaurant. But don’t ever talk about other people who are around. That would only sound nosy and gossipy. That’s alright if you know her already though.
Sweet sweet memories. Can you recollect anything interesting or funny? Remember, as much as knowing what to talk about on a first date is about pleasing the girl, it’s a lot more about blowing your own trumpet and bragging to impress her. Discreetly, of course.
Impress her, right? So recollect a few funny incidents that you could narrate to her, and maybe she too may have a few pointers to add. But never let that drawl on and on past the entrées, the main course, and the dessert. No fascinating anecdote should be longer than a minute or two, unless of course, her eyes have lit up like the floodlights at a football stadium!
