How To Lead Into The Questions
A quick tip before we get started now then…
When it comes to how to lead into these funny first date questions, you might like to first start with some of these questions to ask someone you just met.
This builds a base foundation for the two of you to begin with!
After that, try not to fire these funny first date question off, one after the other, or ask them at complete random either.
Instead, tie them into the current conversation that you’re having, or say something before (that’s relevant) then casually lead into the funny question.
So for example, let’s pick the question:
“Do you talk to your pets? What do you say to them?”
If you came out with this at complete random, it would be WEIRD! However, if you asked them first if they have any pets, then continued on with something like…
“Ah cute. I bet you talk to him all the time, don’t you? A friendly hello every time you see him, right? Your little mate! What else do you say? Ask for a cuddle after a bad day? Come on… spill the beans!”
You see? You can make it funny and teasing. (Flirting by teasing is a great flirting technique by the way so it’s a great, simple way to incorporate this in!.)
It will also then come across as far more natural, as opposed to pre-rehearsed / trying too hard… Not to mention, make the conversation flow far easier too. (Amazing!)
So now we’ve got that covered, let’s get stuck in. Here’s some of our favourite funny first date questions to get you thinking…
