It’s only natural that you want to know things about the woman in front of you (or beside you) on the first date, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that you can ask her anything you like.

If you know what to talk about with a girl, you’ll less likely to offend her or worse bore her to death. Keep this in mind when you want to ask a series of questions that may lead to an interview from hell. Don’t become her worst date yet.

Although it’s fine to ask her questions on a first date, it shouldn’t be the focus of the conversation. Instead, focus on having a good time and keeping her entertained, amused, and occupied.

But if you end up talking to her and enjoying the conversation with her as you build loads of comfort and attraction, having a few questions in mind to ask women on the first date will save you the trouble of scouring for something to talk about while you keep her waiting.

If you don’t know what she’s into, or she’s so new you don’t know what she likes yet, it’s always a good thing to ask questions about her. Find out what she likes to do for fun, or the kind of food she enjoys the most.

This will give you some idea on what to do the next time you go out with her.

Since when going out on dates, preparation is key. And it will only make it easier to be successful if you already have something in mind that fits her personality.

Another thing you want to find out is if you’re compatible with her.

And asking what she like and don’t like is part of that. You should also want to know if she’s looking for something serious or just having fun so you know what to expect with her at the end of the date.

Don’t make things too serious, otherwise she’ll look at you with doubtful eyes and won’t trust you — the opposite of what you want. Use humor and make her laugh, inserting the things you want to know in between.

It’s always ideal to ask something in a humorous way so she’ll answer your question while stimulating her emotions at the same time.

Keep digging using your prepared “questions to ask a woman on a first date” list while keeping it light and funny instead of weird and awkward.
