By Annie Foskett Sep. First dates are the stuff of nightmares. That said, you don't necessarily want to ask "How about them North Koreans? You also don't need to "practice laugh" the night before the date, or prepare a lie about having a niece named "Torple.
Yes, I like TV. The goal of a first date is, to ultimately, topicz yourself — two tiny words that are so hard to actually make good on.
Remember that your date is also in the same boat; all non-sociopaths get a little weird before a first date, so breathe. Just in case, though, here are some conversation starters: ralking. Say "Knock Knock" Hopefully your date will say, "Who's there?
Just kidding. Ask About Their D Their drink, ladies.
Let's not be absurd. Again, just trying to remind you that no matter what you say on a first date, there's someone out there who has said worse. If you're out for drinks and your date orders a Manhattan, ask them if that's their favorite cocktail.
Ask them if they have a favorite beer. Super boring, but super easy. Before you panic, remember, you can just look down at the drink in their hands.

I think getting a feel for date s date is at in terms of pop culture is a great way to see what else you might have in common. That's just annoying and hard. Who knows, you could be on a date with a VC person who actually wants to topic your idea. This question will probably allow you to get into where you each hang out in the place that you talking, and get a feel for what mutual interests you might have.
Talking topics on a date
If they offer up a great story and ask for yours, it means that neither of you takes yourself too seriously. This is a toplcs date, dude, not a grad school application essay question.
Plus, you'll have your personal "worst first date" story for the ages. Remember that the simple act of agreeing to go on a first date is a brave thing, and go out there and get them.
Go on a date this week! F yeah.
