What are some good questions to ask on a blind date?
I'm mentoring a younger co-worker, and the issue of the week is a blind date he's going on this Saturday. He's very worried about getting tongue-tied and having to cope with a long, deadly silence. It's been a very long time since I did a blind date, though, so perhaps someone here can provide some suggestions? As much fun as it is to riff on such things, he's quite earnest about finding some good, clean conversation-starters.
