First dates can be super awkward, depending on how well you know the person already. However, the "getting to know you" questions can get a little repetitive and make the date bland or boring.

So why not spice it up with some more unique questions that'll lead to potential longer conversations that really tell you about your date. Questions like these:

1. What movie/TV character have you always felt was based on your life?

And this'll lead to sharing all the shows that you've binged and the shows and movies you love! A great way to get to know someone's personality is through the shows and movies they like.

2. What’s your favorite holiday?

There is nothing wrong with "whats your favorite..." questions! They help you get to know the person a bit more, but if you're looking for unique "favorite" questions, try this one!

3. What would your talent be on America's Got Talent?

It might surprise you! You never know what hidden talents someone may have. It's also a good way to get some flattery in and ideas for future dates. Suggest "You'll have to show me that sometime" with a smile.

4. How do you like to celebrate your birthday?

Another question that could lead to other topics. You could ask if money wasn't a problem what would they ask for or how would they celebrate. People love to talk about themselves.

5. What is the thing you could watch/read over and over again?

No matter how many times I check out/buy a new book it usually sits unread because I return to the Harry Potter or Percy Jackson books.

Chances are, there's, if not a comfort book, but a comfort show that your date has watched/read a billion and one times.

6. What weird thing did you believe as a kid and found out later that it wasn’t true?

For me.. I believed the actors in my favorite movies and shows had to redo it every time I watched it, so I was watching it live. These are another way to have a good laugh.

7. If you were in the X-men, what would be your power?

Or just, what would your super power be. Ask them about what super power you think would be useless too! It's a good way to find out if they're into Marvel or DC if you're into that.

8. What did you want to be when you grew up as a kid?

Usually those kid dreams rarely become reality, but sometimes they do! Ask them how that turned out for them, even if they say they wanted to grow up to be a race car or their favorite animal or a mermaid. It's a good way to share a laugh.

9. Have you ever been to concert?

Instead of just asking, who's your favorite band or whats your favorite kind of music, this is an unique way of finding out. It also tells you how passionate they are about doing the things they love.

10. Do you like to travel?

Yet another great way to find out their passions. Ask them where they've been recently if the answer is yes. Or ask where their dream vacation is. There's lots of potential with this question

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
