Online Dating Conversation Starters
You don't need telling how nerve-wracking the process of getting to know someone new can be. Your date will also know that! Get yourself prepared with a list of questions to help build the conversation.
Start by commenting on your surroundings which can allow your date to participate in the conversation. You could remark about something interesting your date is wearing or about your location. These comments can help focus the conversation on something both of you can talk about putting you both at ease and not just focusing on yourself.
Almost everyone can appreciate a good joke, as it releases tension and puts the other person at ease. Adding in a little humor to your conversation will liven things up and will show your date you are not frightened to laugh and shows you can be fun to be around.
Try and say something interesting or unusual, without it being! Here are some ideas - ask if their day was as boring as yours. Ask how they got their current job. Ask your date if they have dreams of living somewhere else. Where it is and why they would live there. Comment on a current event in the news that most people would know about. If you don't know already, ask the obvious question about any hobbies they may have.
