nursedavid, First off, congrats on your date! I would suggest picking up some flowers on your way over to get her! :) Something simple. Good topics? Well, the point in a date, is to get to know each other right? So you're going to want to "get to know her". Ask her questions like: Do you have any children? Do you have any siblings? Do you have any pets? What type of movies do you enjoy? What are some of your hobbies? What do you like to do for fun?
Just simple questions, that she'll easily be able to answer. They will also help you get to know her, and maybe she'll ask you some of her own questions :) Good luck!
Mutual interests, if you don't have many then go on to her friends'family, if you're lucky she'll just keep talking for the whole evening, lots of women do that without too much conversation prompting.
Hey, David. Have you ever read the book by Dale Carnegie "How to Win Friends and Influence People"? It's a marvelous book. Old as the hills, but a life changer. It teaches you how to literally makes people love to be around you. The thing people like to talk about most is...themselves. So just ask her questions about what she likes to do, what are her hobbies, her favorite kinds of foods, is she an inside or outside kind of gal (like hiking, riding horses or watching movies, curling up on the couch) things like that. Keep the focus on her interests. You'll do GREAT!!!!
Don't get to personal or u may sound a little creepyX)Try asking what she likes EX: Music, art, Food(<- asking bout food also helps make for a smooth transition to the second date! Try taking her out to her fav food place next time!- it'll show u listen and are interested in what she like!:)
come on people ! the topics u suggested are good...for standard info, which is great.if your date is someone that u hardly know. But if u are funny and and then can also talk. or ask her about something that is very thought provoking.. these are 2 things that impress me the most about a man..funny and inquisitive..
