Question for the ladies:

How do you like guy's to connect with you on/for a first date? (i mean in conversations-talking about interests, w/e-, asking you out, deciding on a place to go, etc).

I've never been on a date before but I can imagine what I'd like my boyfriend to say.

I would like him to seem interested in what I'm saying, especially about my past and hobbies. I understand it will be difficult for him to sound interested if he really isn't but I would appreciate longer than one-word replies and maybe if he could ask related questions about the topic so the conversation can keep going that would be great. Also, if I were to self disclose about myself I would expect him to do the same because it would show that he trusts me as well. Overall I'd say connection through conversation is best achieved by talking about something personal and not superficial.
