When two people are on a date, they are gathering information about each other for further thought. Part of their time together at first will be spent in deep conversation, and they will often start the process with bare facts of where they were born and grew up.

They might have grown up with similar backgrounds, and their goals could be the same. They might have hobbies they share, and they could even have several friends in common. These are all good signs, but there are more ingredients for a great relationship if they want to make it a long term one.
