Is it right to ask him questions first or allow him initiate the question process?

dashingscorpio from Chicago on February 01, 2016:

Excellent questions!

These are great "breaking the ice" questions anyone could ask on a first date without making the other person feel uncomfortable.

The more relaxed someone is the more open they become.

Unfortunately too often people ruin first dates by interrogating people.

Why did your last relationship end? Have you ever cheated or been cheated on? Have you ever had your heart broken?

People simply don't realize forcing someone to drudge up bad memories is not a way to have a great time on a date!

The initial goal is to establish rapport and find out if you have chemistry.

Hopefully readers of your hub will use the questions you propose!
