100 Questions to ask on a first date

Dating Featured

First dates can be stressful. When I first started dating I’d go on dates and have nothing to say. That is why I came up with questions to help myself. Now don’t go asking every question as it can start feeling like an interview. Try to ask around 10 questions and keep the conversation flowing from that. Or you can play a question game that can be fun as well and won’t feel like a job interview. So, let’s get to the 100 questions to ask on a first date
