Accepting that you don’t know how to spark a meaningful conversation on dating sites is completely normal. After all, we have not graduated from the college of romance. 

But, now that you have decided to venture on the best hookup sites, you must know a few traits that can help you maneuver a decent conversation between ‘Hi’ and ‘Good Night.’

The bitter truth is that dating sites have raised the bar significantly higher. Therefore, it is best to refrain from unrealistically flirty catch phrases and pick up lines. 

On that note, we have prepared five icebreakers that will help you start a decent conversation. 

So, let’s get the ball rolling:

1.     What impresses you about people?

Many people start with questions like, ‘what made you swipe right?’. But we will refrain from asking that, at least for now. 

The first question should be aimed at learning about each other. Knowing how your potential date thinks is the most important aspect that can determine the future course of questions and actions. 

Listen carefully while they tell you what they like about people. They may be telling you about their expectations of you. 

2.     How do you like to spend your vacations?

While you are getting to know each other, they may want to go out with you. 

That is why it is best to ascertain whether they are explore-all-day or relaxing-on-a-beach types. It will also give you insight into what not to ask them. 

Besides that, ask them questions regarding their food preferences. While on vacation, it is obvious for you two to eat outside. Therefore, it is better to know what they like or dislike. 

So, ask them to tell you about their funny food stories. 

3.     How would you like your relationship to be?

Although it may sound too early to ask such a question, it will give you an idea about what the other person is looking for. If they are looking for a casual hookup, but you are banking on a long-term relationship, perhaps then the goals may not match.

Besides that, you should consider hookup sites while mapping your relationship goals. Many sites are only for casual hookups, and most people are looking for a few months of fun to evade loneliness. 

Thus, if you are looking for a modest and decent relationship, ensure that the hookup site is customized for long-term relationship seekers. 

4.     Would you rather 

This open-ended vintage standby always stays in trend. It pushes the ball into the other person’s court, and now they have to decide what they prefer. 

For example, you can ask questions like, would you rather go skiing or relax on a beach? Would you rather stay in concrete apartments or live in the woods? Would you rather pet a dog or a cat?

Follow these questions up with a ‘why?’ to ascertain whether they choose the options out of generosity or have a reason to support their choice. 

5.     Are you pursuing any dreams?

We all have dreams when we are in our mid-20s, and chances are that your date has them too. 

Therefore, it is best to know what they want to be in life. It will help you ascertain whether or not your dreams will firmly gel with theirs. 

Besides asking them, tell them about your dreams as well. If your dreams match, this question can act as the icebreaker. 

Final Thoughts

To find the right partner, you must be clear about what you want from a relationship. 

By integrating these questions into your conversation, you can cover all important factors that determine a healthy relationship. 

So, what are you waiting for? The stage is all yours now!
