Post List: Things to Talk About on a Date
on: May 8, 2013, 11:27 PM

So, on my last date we exhausted almost everything I could think of discussing... So I thought, maybe we could have a list of topics like we have a list of shadchanim. PM me and I'll add to the list. Here's my list so far (including the things I've thought of since we went out) (and no wisecracks or why-did-you discuss-that please! they're just ideas, hopefully we'll be helping each other out!)
Family - where parents are from, siblings names, ages, occupations
Funny stories - heard, cute kids
Schools attended
Camps attended
When went to Israel, what did there
What we like to do - side interests
Driving - enjoyable? good at it?
College (classes, professors, experiences)
SATS
Regents
Shuls
Mutual acquaintances
Construction (don't ask)
Magazines
Books
Moving to a new house
Glasses
Music - songs, singers, concerts
Politics
Family history - WW2, Kohanim/Leviim/Yisroel, Yichus
Clubs/groups
Guests you've had
Places traveled
Family simchas
Birthdays
Food - Does your family like salad/into health/weird diets

Ever heard of the girl who dated a guy who brought a list like that and each time they talked about something, he would check it off on the list and then when he got to the end of the list, he took her home. When they got to her house, she asked him for a paper and pen, wrote his name, put a little check mark, and got out.

That's a good one feigy123!
Life123 love the idea!
I will just add that like Feigy was getting at these ideas should just be in the back of your head, the conversation has to flow smoothly. You should not be jumping from topic to topic...
more ideas...
1. What Yeshiva/Seminary is like.
2. Why Yeshiva/Seminary is important or not important.
3. Your job.
4. What he does in the Summers.
5. You can always talk about your surroundings...
I'll write if I think of more.
Thanks!

Driving-when you got permit/license...ever got a ticket
Shabbos table-what its like
where you live, if you like city/country living
Israel - is a huge topic and can take up a long time
vacations - places you have gone to and places you would like to go

I don't know, but I think it's a bad sign if you're running out of things to talk about on a date. That probably means there's no emotional chemistry. It might be you have absolutely nothing in common. If there's a connection, you probably won't run out of things to discuss.

Not on the first date... And there can always be quiet times... But in truth I didn't really need my list of ideas on the next date...
