A few days ago, my girlfriend sent me an email entitled, “Clean Conversation Starters.”
I’m going on a blind date, she wrote, and I want to know which conversation starters I should throw out there to get to know him better. Which ones should I bring up?
First, I have mad respect for anyone who will attempt a blind date in 2016. With dating apps, photoshop, internet creepers, etc – it takes a special kind of confidence (bravery? foolishness?) to meet a stranger for drinks.
Second, conversation starters!! How delightful!
I spent the next little while pouring over the questions, pausing to mentally answer most of them (and surprising myself with some of my responses!). So, let’s play a little game today – go ahead and select one or two of the following conversation starters, copy and paste the question and leave your answer in the comments!
Would you rather eat your favourite meal for every meal for the rest of your life or never be able to eat your favourite meal again?
Would you rather live in a place where it is always hot or always cold?
Would you rather be poor with lots of good friends or rich with no friends?
Would you rather lose all of your money and valuables or all of the pictures you have ever taken?
Would you rather never be able to eat warm food or never be able to eat cold food?
Would you rather be a famous director or a famous actor?
Would you rather take a vow of celibacy or take a vow of silence?
I look forward to reading your answers! And in case you were wondering, I’d rather live in a place where it is always hot, and I’d much rather be a famous director!
