The main thing is to be natural, enjoy the time spent together, and don't push too much. As long as you are interested and respectful, I think you can't go wrong. It takes more than one date to get to know someone.
This would vary based upon how long you've already known this person and how well you know them, or at least think you know them. For instance if you met online and this has been your only form or communication over a short period of time, any questios on religeon and politics should totally stay off of the menu of items to talk about.
If you share a mutual friend and have been introduced and set up, this would still apply.
If you've known of eachother and are only aquainted not "friends" I would still not bother with religeon or politics. These two subjects are taboo even for people who have been married many years or even between immediate family.
Avoid religeon and politics like the plague at all cost.
If you have any interest in furthering the relationship or even the date itself, avoid these 2 topics.
Talk about forms of entertainment, such as movies or music. Sports can be tricky depending on the season and rather or not the date would be a hard core die hard fan of your rival team.
I wouldln't worry about any form of serious conversation unless you are serious about furthering the relationship beyond the occasional date. Or the date may end before it gets a chance to really start.
Anything of a sexual nature. This would be a red flag that the person is only interested in a hook up.
If it concerns a guy going out on a date with a female, I'd say: "Do you like to be hogtied and ball-gagged while taking it in the ass?" If she smiles after hearing that on the first date, you can rest assured that ya got your self an "open resource," if ya will... LOL! Don't look at me, just answering the question to the best of my ability...
Am I all that and a bag of potato chips or what? (I think if someone said that to me I'd throw my drink on them and walk out).
Woman to the male: "what kind of car do you drive?" guys don't like the Q because she trying to find out you income level. Very rude.
Man to woman " Wanna smoke some crack/meth?"
I hate being asked "how many guys have you had sex with?" I find that question in bad taste and a sign of insecurity.
There are a few that I would avoid until you get to know one another better:
1. How old are you?
2. What do you weigh?
3. What about politics? What do you think about what's going on in the world right now?
4. How many boy or girlfriends have you had?
5. Which foods make you gassy?
6. Have you ever contracted a sexually transmitted disease?
7. Has your butt always been this big?
Those would be some that would raise a red flag for me.
I had a guy ask me one time "Do your breast get smaller when you loose weight?" I only weighed 140 and I'm 5'5". I didn't know what to make of it. Needless to say, with that one question I decided right then and there it would be the last.
How much money do you make?
Are you ready to get married?
How many men or women did you date?
oh man! You should never ask about sex, especially kinky sex on the first date. Also, I think past relationships, marriage and kids (unless you already have them!) are something you should save for the second date, at least. Talk about your pets, your job, your hobbies, interests and favorite bands. Find common ground before you go spilling all your personal secrets.
