On a first date, I want to make sure the conversation keeps moving and there isn't an awkward silence. What are some good open-ended questions (which take longer to answer) to ask on a first date?

"Don't try to get to know me within the time span of this date. I'd rather not play 20 questions all night. I'd rather just spend this night eating good food with good company. Its no use to judge a book by its cover, so for all intents and purposes, you are good company until I have the pleasure or displeasure of getting to know you more. Please, will you pass me the pepper and tell me about the single best thing that happened to you all day. I'd like to know." :)
He responded by asking me out on date #2.
Try just asking someone about the best thing that happened to them, whether it is small or large, usually that gets them to think and provides a good deal of conversation. We exchanged many stories this way and it also tells you a lot about a person right away.1
