First dates can be tricky. No kidding, right? On the one hand, you want to make a good first impression, but at the same time, you also want to come away from the experience knowing if you even want to see them again. It's a real balancing act because you want to play it cool and not come on too strong. But what is the point of a first date if not to weed out incompatible matches? To that end, it’s good to have a few questions about their goals to ask on the first date. Ones that are subtle enough to pass as regular conversation — or to naturally open up the conversation for follow-up questions — but will give you some insight into what your date envisions for their future. That way, you aren't weirding anyone out, but you'll still have the opportunity to know if you want a second date to be one of your future goals.
Not sure what to ask? No worries, I've got you covered. Next time you are on a first date that seems like it has the potential to go somewhere, here are some questions to ask that will help you gain some insight into their goals and plans for the future.
