First dates can be a lot — you want to get to know everything about someone, but you also don't want to come on too strong. Finding a happy medium between the two can be tricky, but asking your date how they spend their free time can be a good place to start. There are several questions about their hobbies to ask on a first date that can help you get a sense of who they are, while not making it seem like you're prying into every aspect of their life. These questions are a good way to learn what you want about them, without them feeling like they're in the middle of a job interview. (Because who wants to feel like that on a first date?)
Learning how someone chooses to spend their time can speak volumes about the kind of person they are. If they like to bundle up on the couch with Netflix and their pet, they're probably low-key and like to relax at home. If they embrace every possible outdoor activity, chances are they're the adventurous type. If they like to read, maybe you've found the other half to your bookworm self. So, the next time you feel the first date conversation dwindling, and you haven't really learned anything about this person, consider asking one of these five questions about their hobbies.
