I’m pretty sure we can all agree that, as far as things that cause anxiety and nervousness go, first dates are at the top of the tier list.

Just having to sit in one place and try to impress a person to hopefully have them as someone in your life… That can make pretty much anyone a bit apprehensive! But virtual dates have opened up a lot of new opportunities for many people when it comes to dating.

How you feel about the whole virtual dating thing can be subjective. On one side, it provides more of a sense of comfort since it all takes place in your own house, rather than some restaurant with random strangers everywhere. On the other hand, it opens up a new set of issues we never really had to worry about before, like a bad internet connection or other technical problems that can make the entire date less than optimal.

The hardest thing to do on a first date is to just break the ice, the awkward barrier that stands between you and your potential love interest. Here’s something that’s going to help you finally break the ice.

50 Questions to Break the Ice for the Perfect Virtual Date
