sure, normal thing, but questions aren't the basic thing, you can't bombard your girl with *ample?* list of questions on first date, sometimes the answer appears without asking, and this is the most sensitive way :)
i understand what you mean about too many questions, a lot of dates i've been on and especially first ones, questions are the main course of the evening, thats including the film or meal or whatever it is you do on a first date.
So as a date Panienka am i supposed to sit there in silence, hoping you will come up with all the answers?? are you going to read my mind???? :):):):):)):) if i'm on a date with you i want to find out about you not sit there and just eat, whats the point of having you there otherwise, i'd be paying for a meal for two people and interacting with myself, lol :):):)
