Relax! It’s only the first date

My friend Dave had a first date last week but he said it felt more like an FBI interview. His date had the strangest line of questions that kind of took away from having the natural conversation.

Some questions he was totally cool with like can you cook and where did you grow up. Others felt a little more intrusive such as have you ever been arrested, do you have any sexual problems. He actually thought she was kidding and attempted to laugh it off; eventually telling her that since they just met, it would better to put off the heavy stuff.

When you go on a date, do you try to ask the tough questions? I know dating is about getting to know one another, but shouldn’t having fun be the main focus on a first date?

What kind of questions do you normally ask in the early stages of dating? What kind, if any, do you ask on the first date?
