--Where are you from, and did you grow up there?
--What is your college major..or what did you go to school for, or where do you work?
--What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Just make sure to avoid:
asking about past relationships
asking how they think the date is going...awkward....
talking bad about people
politics & religion
once you start talking, it's easy to move from the 'script' of planned questions, to just talking & having a good time.
