Jump in with your own sick-pet story.
You sense your date is emotional and it's too heavy a conversation for a first meeting, so you ask a question about their profile that you've been curious about.
Ask more questions about the pet: how big; what color, etc.
Ask more about the illness and how the person feels.
Smile heartily and say, "So, tell me something about you!"
Check your date out, see they still look interested and keep on talking.
Search your memory for something from their profile that you have in common.
Flash a self-deprecating smile, admit your nervousness, then say something like, "I really liked what you said on your profile about...."
"Wow! I've always wanted to go there! What did you think of the country?"
"God, you ate grasshoppers? I couldn't ever do that."
"You think that's bad? When I was in (insert your own place) I...."
"You studied abroad? What was the subject?"
Go with it! You're on a roll!
Start gently nudging them to open up and share
Steer the conversation away, but file the response away for further investigation.
Blow it off: it's their own business.
Gently probe for more: after all, past relationships do affect current attitudes
Assume the worst and tell a couple of ex-horror stories
Your dad died of a drug overdose!?
I knew someone, who knew someone who died of an overdose.
That must have been a tough time for your family.
Sounds like you've overcome a lot--I mean, look at all you've accomplished!
Feel they know more about you than you know about them?
Have a good idea of their world-view and current lifestyle based on what they've told you, rather then their reactions to what you've told them?
