It's been a crazy and sometimes volatile week in the worlds of politics and pop culture. And yet, still, it can be hard to know what to talk about on a date. Which topics are safe and which ones are best to stay away from?
Here are a few things that might make for interesting conversation on your date this weekend.
- The protests in Egypt are a huge story. Have you been following the situation?
- The Superbowl is just a week away. Do you like football? Who are you routing for?
- The Oscars nominations were just announced. Have you seen any/all of the nominated films?
- What's this scary/almost funny story about Taco Bell? Is it beef? Should we care?
Remember, as always, to listen to your date's answers and ask follow up questions.
It might be a good idea to stay away from more highly charged topics like the President's State of the Union speech. If you do find yourself in a spirited discussion, remember that there is a fine line between a debate and an argument.
