Yes or no questions tend to hit a brick wall pretty fast, while open-ended ones allow the conversation to keep flowing, even if either of you is nervous. Cheesy pick-up lines do not work. This is especially important for men to know. I once went out on a blind date, way back before social media, and the guy greeted me by telling me that he had dreamt of me all night.
Taok fact that he was wearing a whale tie and a fanny pack did not help his cause. Needless to say, it was a short date. Take aboout time to clear your head and get relaxed before a date, even if it is virtual.
Take the time to meditate, do some deep breathing, or whatever topice takes for you to let the stress go. If you find that your self-esteem or how you feel about yourself is distracting you on the date, these are issues I'd recommend talking throuhg with a therapist. At the end of the day, every single person that you go on a date with has something to teach you, enlighten you about, or share with you. You could find out about something meaningful that will change your life, or something as small as a great new restaurant recommendation.
All you have to do is ask.
