Carrying a Conversation during a First date can become difficult and uneasy at times, since you hardly know the individual you are dating (specially on a blind date), making it hard to open up and think of a certain topic to talk about and with slight tension and nervousness, things can be really awkward.
on dates, usually a person is scared of rejection and failure; thus is nervous and conscious on what to say. it has to be the right things; sparking his/her interests as the wrong words may either injure your dates feelings or make the Conversation boring.
Ones apprehensions can lead to damaging results, usually paralyzing ones thoughts and emotions, thus inhibiting ones capability to behave confidently and normally like one would do when he is in the company of family and friends.
Almost everyone is capable of carrying on an effortless, enjoyable and easy going Conversation with individuals they are familiar with and therefore having the proper approach, so one can do it with the girl/guy on ones First date.
Another solution is to relax and be yourself; never pretend to be somebody that you are not. Keep in mind that its no use when your date will like for putting up a front; it will be a great feeling to know that your date liked you for what you are.
never brag, talking constantly of your awards and accomplishments as this would only set arrogant impression on you. Keep your Conversation as simple as possible keeping away discussions about politics or religion.
Also, do not intrude or ask personal questions; whatever your date wants to relate to you, he/she will tell you on his/her own. never too, talk about your experience about past relationships, as this will make your date feel uneasy. Making your date feel at ease with your conversations, for sure there will be a second time around for both of you.
Let your date talk and you have to listen well, as this will allow you to collect ideas of the things that interest your date and make these as topics for your Conversation as well as be acquainted with your date much better. Furthermore, being a great listener is one positive feature that any ideal date can possess.
Take note that most often than not, people are tempted or even talk about their life story. Be careful, as this might only bore your date. Instead, loosen up and select an easy topic or general things such as movies, food, or anything that is of interest to your date. Or be funny and joke a little, you do not need to be all that formal.
Do not let the awkward silences worry you, at some point those silences will come, but know that as they embarrass you, they also embarrass your date. Awkward silences are never a basis for you to conclude that your date is not interested in you; he/she just might be in a similar situation as you.
