A date opens an opportunity for a two-sided conversation, one of his and one of yours. Hogging the conversation the whole time? Isn’t exactly an impressive skill. Don’t get us wrong, not talking at all is also a turn off, but learn about him too. His interests, his aspirations, even his dislikes. Let him know you like Star Wars, ask him for a movie recommendation, ask him what he thinks of a player in your favorite basketball team. It’s how you make a date interesting.
