First dates can be awkward moments in as much as they are exciting.

They are the best moments to create an amazing first impression and get to know if at all you have anything in common.

Appearing uncomfortable and sweaty moments are common, but that is a deal-breaker.

While seated across the table gazing at each other, it is a good idea to ask these first date questions as you explore topics you both might be interested in. It is on the topics that your future conversations will center.
