What To Talk About

If you are a senior who is just getting back into the dating game, it can be daunting. You may be a little rusty and it can be nerve wracking to go on a date. seniordatingselect.com wants to give you some really great conversation tips that will help you get to know your date and keep the conversation flowing. Even if you are nervous it is important to remember that everyone is! No matter how old you are, first dates are exciting but nerve-wracking so just be confident and friendly and you’re sure to have a good time.

To keep the conversation light and allow yourself to get to know your date, stick to topics like these:

Hobbies - Share with your date the things you do for you. What makes you happy? How do you spend free time? Talk about your passions, favorites, and activities. You may find out that you share the same hobbies which could give you a great idea for the next date!

Favorite things - favorite foods, sports, books, authors, teams, etc. Sharing things you enjoy is an excellent conversation because it can lead to passionate conversations about shared interests and form a bond.

Family - Do you have children or grandkids? If you do, go ahead and share some information about them. But remember that while they are a part of your life they shouldn’t define your life so be sure not to ramble on about them and their accomplishments more than you talk about yourself or your date.

Travel - Do you like to travel? Where have you been? Where do you want to go? What great things have you learned from your travels?

Activity - What do you do to stay active? Do you go to the gym, take classes, ride bikes? Is your fitness routine one that can be shared? It is important to let your date know that you are health conscious and active. If you like the outdoors, doing things outside like hiking or kayaking can be a great way to spend time together and get to know each other.
