Zepeel -10 First Date Questions%0A.jpg

After finding your ideal guy or girl on video dating apps like Zepeel, it can be very challenging to get to know your could-be partner better when you meet for the first date. This is because first dates can be awkward and anxious. A good conversation may lead to blossoming love while a bad one may make you regret why you even met.

Even though you can get a lot of good information from a video message and a live video chat on a video dating app, you want to go further and get to know them better when you meet face-to-face.

But before you rejoice on your success of meeting him/her, it is important that you rehearse some good first date questions that will help you maintain a good conversation and get to know the other person better. With this in mind, we’ve selected some amazing first date questions that will get the conversation going smoothly and will give you a better chance of winning over the other person.  

1. Who are the most important people in your life?

Always pay attention to how your date answers these questions. In most cases, you will get answers like ‘my parents’, ‘siblings’ or ‘friends’. This question not only helps you understand the other person better, but it also helps you know if the person you want to date forms close relationships.

2 . What kind of things make you laugh?

Knowing what makes the other person laugh will help you find ways of telling good jokes and having the conversion flow. This will also show that you’ve got a great sense of humor, which most people want in a partner.  

3. What is your favorite dish?

This question will help you get to other topics like what food do you like cooking, their favorite eateries that he/she loves, and if he or she is into dieting or not.

4. Do you have a special place that you like to visit more often?

Every person has that beautiful or serene place that they love to visit most. It can be a city within the country or in Europe. This will help you learn what your partner likes and you will be able to know what his/her tastes and interests are.

5. What are your dreams?

At every stage of life, every person has things that they want to accomplish. Dreams can be in the form of career, travel, or education. It is vital to know if the other person’s dreams match with yours.

6. Who is the most influential person in your life

By talking about the most important person in his or her life, you will be able to know what their journey has been like and what they inspire to become in the future.

7. What do you love doing in your free time?

Talking about their passions will help you know if you share the same hobbies or not. This will also help you know how you can spend free time together as you build on your new relationship.

8. Where is your home?

Now that you met via online dating in Philadelphia, this doesn’t mean that Philadelphia is home. It might be in the west, or a place further away. Home to him/her maybe where their parents live or where they grew up and that’s where their heart is.

9. What is the most difficult thing that you’ve ever done?

This is an indirect way of asking him/her about their struggles and difficult moments in their life. Additionally, this will help you know what they define as hard or hurting.  

10. What do you like most about this city?

You will be able to know what their favorite places are in the city and what they like doing when they are not at work or at their house. Also, you will get to know their favorite spots, whether they like art, sports, or know the history of the city.
