The Best First-Date Question To Ask Someone, Based On Their Zodiac Sign


It's pretty much expected that the first few dates with someone new will be a little awkward. It gets even more awkward when there's suddenly a lull in the conversation. So if you're feeling a little stuck on what to ask, turn to astrology. Your date's zodiac sign can reveal the best question you should ask them on a date.

Being open and engaging on a date doesn't come easily for everyone. For instance, astrologer Elisa Robyn, Ph.D., tells Bustle, "Expect the Earth signs, Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo to be a bit more cautious at first." So if you're going to experience an awkward silence with anyone, it may be an Earth sign. Water signs (Scorpio, Pisces, and Cancer) tend to listen more than speak. Fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) are natural storytellers, and Air signs (Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra), tend to be the most open and engaging conversationalists among the zodiac.

"Do be aware that the moon or rising sign can completely change this," Robyn says. "So an Aries sun with a moon or rising in Cancer, will act more like the Cancer on a first date than an Aries." That's because your moon sign is all about your "emotional self," which usually shows when you're in a relationship, with friends, or completely relaxed.

So here's the best question to ask each sign on a date, according to astrologers.
