What first date questions should you ask if you want to leave a lasting impression? Here are the only 5 you’ll need!

Recently, a client asked, “What type of questions can I ask on a first date to see if we share the same values? I always struggle with this.” If you’ve ever been at a loss for what to say on a first date, you’re not alone. I’m sharing five of my favorite first date questions and conversation starters. This is how they’ll benefit you:

  • You’ll be able to tell early on whether you have a connection
  • You’ll get to know their values and areas of compatibility more quickly
  • You’ll spark more engaging conversations, whether there’s a true connection or not

Ask one or two of these first date questions on your date, and the conversation should begin to flow. You can also use a few on a first phone call to see if you even want to go on a first date!
