Many people often spoil the mood on their first date, not knowing the art of holding a conversation and talking about irrelevant things. Going through the following guidelines you should be able to avoid such mistakes.
Use this occasion to explore your date and get to know more about the person without intruding upon their personal turf and making them feel uncomfortable. This is not about dominating a conversation and having your say, but more about being an equal and showing genuine curiosity in your date.
It will also happen that the other person will be interested in getting to know you too. So when asked specifically, do share details about your person and keep a healthy conversation going. Always be attentive and relaxed.
One doesn’t talk about topics like politics or crime on your first date. This is not done.
Should your date be interested in the same subjects as you, then obviously the topic of common interest what ever it may be will figure out to be the main thread of your conversation.
If you end up talking about politics and hold different view points, then avoid conflict of interest and change the topic.
Religion is something that people are very sensitive about and it is very personal to each individual. This is the second subject that you should avoid discussing on your first date.
If you have known each other’s view on religion and it matches without any conflict, it doesn’t make sense to bring up this topic during the conversation on your first date.
It does not help you to build your relationship if you end up fighting over religion on your first outing. Better would be to keep this subject for discussion on a future date when both of you have known each other for a while.
