It’s not uncommon for people on a date to feel like they’re at an interview. When you’re on a first date or in the early stages of getting to now someone, you will ask a lot of questions and, also answer a lot of questions.

Asking questions in a way that feels like an interrogation typically happens when people are nervous, but also can be an indication they are really interested. No matter how confident you or your date might be, there will always be nerves, especially if there is attraction. This is normal. But how do you make dating fun?

How do you get over those nerves, and make sure you have a fun time and so does your date?

A bit of planning can make the difference between fun dating, leading to a second, or you falling flat on your face because the date was too business like. The art of conversation allows for the free flow of questions and answers, and around meaningful topics and things you both find interesting, with the outcome, being dating fun.

Thinking about yourself and what’s important to you for a minute, and the things you want to learn from your date, are the same. This is how you find out if you’re compatible.

Ask yourself the following questions.

What do I like to do for fun?

What stage of life am I in?

What qualities am I looking for in a life mate?

When you know the answers to these questions, you can ask similar questions of your date. Keep in mind you are looking for similarities and compatibility based on who you are, and the type of person you want in your life.

Happy relationships are more than skin deep. Sure, you want attraction, but when looks fade, and they always do, you want to be matched based on the important things like your values, shared interests, personality, and goals for your future. This is compatibility and connection.
