You can find so many lists of questions you should and should not ask on a first date, however there are some questions that you wouldn't think to ask, but they can reveal a lot about your date. Bustle says that they may be generic, but these questions can tell you so much about who you're out with that evening.

  • How was your day? While you may think it silly to ask someone new this question, you would be amazed at how much this can reveal. If they give you a "it was okay" response, it says to you that they're not quite willing to open up. If they give you a winded 20-minute response then they may be too willing and eager to share their life with you.
  • Have you been to this bar before? Or restaurant, or park, or wherever you are at the moment. If they say that they've been here before, it could tell you that they are a creature of habit. If this is a new place to them, then it means that they like to try new places and things!
  • How long have you lived here? Were they born and raised here? Stayed in town after going to college here? Moved here for someone else? A question like this reveals more about someone then asking "Where are you from?" because the possibilities are nearly endless with what their answer could be.

The answers that you may get from these generic questions can make or break your date, or help you decide if you'd like to see this person again.
