Small Talk Ideas During Your Valentine’s Date
Before we go to the do’s, lets go over the do not mention list for small talk.
Politics – This can be a touchy subject. You should be wise to feel out your person’s view prior to sharing yours.
Religion – Unless you’ve met your date in church, try not to discuss this for the “early on” date. You will need to get to know date’s a little better prior to discussing this topic.
Salary – Dates are not financial transactions, leave this topic out.
Sports Teams – You can easily insult someone with this topic. Thread very lightly when discussing.
Let’s go with good ice breaker tips. Small talk conversation starter ideas for your restaurant date
FOOD – Food is a very safe topic. Food as a topic of discussion can also be a very good way to know your date. What their favorites are and what they won’t have any. This information can be useful for the next date. Restaurant recommendations together with discussing food should be a safe small talk topic
Movies and TV shows – These small talk topics are easy to introduce in a conversation. Everyone has watched a movie anyway or at the very least has seen a tv show. This topic can easily give you a glimpse on your person’s interest depending on what they often watch. Expounding on this topic can also reveal your date’s perspective. Easy conversation going for this topic with an added benefit of glimpsing into their ideas on the topics which are not for small talk at all.
Music – Music can be another date topic in a restaurant setting. This should also get your person started when they talk about their favorite music, singer or band. This is also a good time to listen so that you can at least update your playlist.
Vacations – To get the conversation going on this topic, simply ask your date, “Where have you travelled to?”. Should the conversation get stalled, you can simply say,” I haven’t been there, can you tell me more about it?” We all remember vacations very well. You can also simply talk about dreams vacations, who knows you might be experiencing it with your date in the near future.
Hobbies – This small talk topic can help you discover what your date does with his free time. Simply ask, “What do you do during your free time?”. Discussion on hobbies can easily turn to discussion on sports which leads to sports teams. Tread lightly with discussion on hobbies.
Fashion – Fashion as an idea for a small talk topic should not just be about labels and designers. It can also be about fabric, function and the likes. One can easily share good shopping spots as well as best practices for clothing. Trust me, men know how to keep dry.
