Plus, how else do you get to know someone if you don’t ask questions that allow them to open up and show you who they are?Instead of asking them what they do for a living, ask them what they like best and least about their job.Just don’t keep firing those questions out of nervousness.You won’t your date to feel like it is an interrogation.If you have practiced with that friend, you have questions to which there are longer answers than just “yes” or “no.” Ask them, and practice those listening skills with eye contact, head nods, and small smiles (and laughs if they are genuinely funny).
This gives you confidence for a second date or to move onto someone else.
You haven’t had your own time to get used to it, and now here you are on a date. The goal is to increase your comfort level, and dressing as you always do will help that.
Meeting for a drink or coffee or attending some short event is usually the best for an introvert.
