Breaking The Ice

  • Print

Everyone dreads those awkward first dates. Those times when you don’t know one another well enough so you’re not exactly sure what to talk about. If you are anything like me, you hate awkward moments of silence so you try to break them with anything. When I say anything I mean literally ANYTHING. I once was on a date and started talking about Disney characters’ just to break the silence. (That might be part of the reason I never got a second date). Anyway point is what do you do when you have nothing to say? What do you do to break an uncomfortable moment of silence?

Below I have listed some fun questions to ask on a date that you can make into a fun game. Not only will these help break any moments of silence, they will also help you both to get to know one another.
