How much do you earn?

Asking your date about his/her salary is a bad idea. So, don’t ask about how much money they make. It is wise to know your date better before getting into money matters. Same goes for his/her possessions or brand associations and spending pattern.



Are you planning to get married any time soon?

One shouldn’t hurry to get into things such as dating for marriage. Dating is not always a preamble to finding your soul mate. If you want to pass the message, be subtle and indirect in the approach. Look out for common interests, hobbies and likings to bridge a connection for the relationship.



Why didn’t your previously relationship work?

Sure it is important to know who you are dating, but, bringing up something that may hurt his/her emotions is a bad way to start on the first meeting. Trying to uproot past relationships of your date will dishearten him/her. It may also lead to bitter and angry conversation. Find out who he/she is now, with you, on the date, to judge him/her.
