Many men feel nervous when they are first dating a woman. They feel as nervous about what they should act like on the date, and they wonder how they are going to make a good impression on their dates. One of the things that men worry about most when going on a date with European women is what to talk about. There is nothing worse that those dreaded awkward silences, which can often, unfortunately, arise on first dates.
Reasons Awkward Silences can Arise
Awkward silences often occur on the first date and even for a few dates after that, and they happen for a number of different reasons. Firstly, the fact that you are nervous can make you feel like you don’t know what to say to your date. It can feel as though your mind goes blank and you suddenly can’t think of anything to say. Secondly, you may find that there are awkward silences during your dates, as you have not made enough of an effort to make conversation with your date. While it is impossible to avoid all awkward silences, as these often occur between people who are getting to know each other, there is something that you can do to ensure that they occur as little as possible. Knowing what to talk about with your date, before you go on the date, can help to ensure that your date goes much more smoothly.
Where you are: One of the simplest things that you can talk about when you are first getting to know your date is where you are and what you are both doing. If you have gone to the zoo together, talk about the animals that you are looking at. If you are eating dinner together, talk about the food or the architecture of the establishment. If you are hiking together, talk about the sights around you. This is one of the easiest methods of making conversation. You can both engage in this topic of conversation.
Your Date’s Day: While it may seem like a generic question, asking your date about her day is actually a great topic of conversation. Not only will your date feel as though you care about her and are interested in her, but asking about her day can also lead to more topics of conversation. For example, if you ask her about her day and she says that she went to a painting class, you could then move the conversation forwards by asking her about her interest in art.
Movies you have Seen: Talking about movies is a great way to make conversation and to get to know a person better. You can tell your date about the last movie that you watched and then ask her if she has seen it. This is a great way to make conversation. If she has seen it, you can ask her what she though of it, and if she hasn’t seen it, you can ask her what her favorite movies are.
When you are making conversation with someone on a date, make sure that you ask them questions, and that you are always keeping the conversation moving forward. If you have asked your date a question and she has answered, then make sure that you follow up it up.
