24 Questions To Ask Before Going On A First Date

Getting a date is exciting.

But it’s better if you trust your potential date enough.

During chatting, there are some required questions to ask before going on a first date with a guy or girl you met through a dating site.


Finally, you have that person you’re looking for on a dating site.

He or she is the one- you’ve waited for so long.

Of course, there’s the excitement of meeting your match finally in person as your first date is fixed.

No matter how long you’ve been chatting with each other, it’s still possible that you two haven’t discovered important things about each other.

Who knows if this person is just nice at texting and you misunderstood them as a perfect date? 

Indeed, false assumptions and over-excitement can lead to disappointments.  

To prevent that it’s a good idea to ask some good questions before you meet your online match in person or ask them for a date. 


Good Questions To Ask Before Going On A First Date

While texting with your match from a dating site, you can try asking these questions casually, to know them before meeting offline. 

This will help you get some insights into your match and decide if you two are ready for a date or not.

Also, if you should go or take this person on a date, is he/she worth your time or not? 

Before you ask them to meet in person, be sure you’re clear about such things.

Why Ask Such Questions To Your Potential Date?

It’s for the purpose of the final check before you say yes to their invitation or ask them for a date.

You certainly don’t want to waste your or their time (mood and money) being on a first date with someone who isn’t even compatible enough. 

Well, such questions aren’t enough to find compatibility right away, but these will give some sort of idea of the type of person they are and where this date may lead.

Especially if something doesn’t feel right, don’t take a chance.


Instead of asking them out or saying yes to their date proposal, you better ask enough questions to your potential date to know them at some personal level before you meet in person.

You need to feel confident about them. Plus, to be sure that you know this guy or girl at a certain level.
