50 questions to never run out of things to say on a date

Is it possible to never run out of things to say on a date?

I mean, to an extent. It is possible to never run out of things to say on a date but only if you have a pre-set idea of what topics you could bring up, what possible questions you can ask, etc. Hence why I’ve created this article.

See our main article: How to never run out of things to say.

Take these questions with a grain of salt; you don’t need to recite them like a laundry list but you can use them as a safety net to have in case you run into the… dreaded awkward silence.

No matter how spontaneous or spunky you are, whether it is nerves or you are having an off day, going out on a date can be a nervous experience.

If you are running out of things to say, you might have to “fake” natural conversations. Although it’s hard to imagine a world where you fake a conversation while you’re on a date simply to make a connection, it happens — and it usually means trouble later on, forging a fake foundation for the relationship to grow on.

Instead of being on that date and not trying to not “run out of things to say”, we’re here to help you have a list of questions “in your back pocket” so to speak.

Here is our list of questions you can ask. 25 of them will be “safe questions” and 25 will be your bank of interesting questions when you really want to get to know the person.

Pick out a few that could really interest you or figure out what your response would be and pick out the questions where you have some impressive answers to them. That way, when you ask her or him the question and listen(!) to their answer, when it gets directed back at you, you’ll have an adequate answer already set up. Hopefully, that answer will be something that will impress them (honestly).

Now you’re ready for your first date. If you are having trouble remembering, you can always screenshot these questions, taking a quick look at the opportune moment. If you really have trouble or feel self-conscious, go ahead and come out with it.

At the end of the day, they are also on a first date, so if you really want to be open and honest, if the conversation is running dry, you can impress them with being prepared.
