Tiffany sat across from Tom in the nicest restaurant he could find. The lights were dim, the food was delicious and the wine flowed freely; it was the perfect dating experience, right?

Ohhhh the first date. We’ve all been in that “nice to meet you, now let’s stare at the food” situation, and it’s not fun. Once you get past initial pleasantries, where does the conversation go?
