  • I prefer to just let the conversation come naturally, than to force it by being asked a serious of questions that were prepared beforehand . It makes me feel like i'm on a formal interview lol It seems so insincere and too forced.

    For example, if we were talking about hobbies it would be okay to ask me questions about my hobbies or if i had any. But it's weird if it is just dropped into the convo when we are talking about a subject unrelated to hobbies.

    If there's an awkward silence, there's nothing worse than questions being fired at you to fill that silence . It makes it too awkward. If there's an awkward silence i can easily manage to fill
    I am very friendly and talkative in real life , so i like to just chat and see where the convo leads us.

    It's more important to add your own thoughts, opinion and views on a certain subjects, topics etc during a convo , because that way you can get to know each other more than you would by asking lots of direct questions

    Talking about yourself lets the other person see who you are. And vice versa. Questions are good if they are limited and if they correspond with what you're talking about.

  • How many kids would you like? At what age would you like to get married?

    Bahahaha ๐Ÿคฃ I started with questions to absolutely AVOID!

    Questions I like asking on a first date are: "How do you define love between two significant people?", "Why are you single?", "What made you consider going on this date with me?"

  • 1. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
    2. How old were you when you had your first kiss?
    3. How many people have you had sex with?
    4. Do you have any pets? If so how many?
    5. Do you have any children?
    6. Why are you single?
    7. Have you ever been cheated on?
    8. What are your hopes and dreams.

    *OMFG! After I typed this I realized how much it sounded like a interrogation. Lol, I could scare him away... well whoever I date has to love me for my craziness*

  • Family: relationship with mom and dad. Siblings? Social: what do u like to do for fun? Games you like to play? Favorite shows/movies? Work: what do you do? Dream job? Dream house/car?

    • Games... did you just say GAMES XD.

    • Lol yeah, games. Does no one play games on their phone or computer. Is that just me? She could ask about board games or sports games. There are plenty of games out there.

    • Hahaha I know but it's rare for a woman to mention games. It's a huge bonus when it comes to dating and also a nice subject to talk about.

  • Have you ever been to a Turkish prison?
    Have you ever seen a grown man naked?
    Do you like gladiator movies?

  • It's good to ask about hobbies so you know if you guys have anything in common or not

  • I tend to ask very personal questions so I can get a deeper connection to a person. If they're uncomfortable with it, I'm not sure what to do because I hate small talk and empty questioning.

  • oo I haven't got a clue, dates give me so much anxiety and by no means am I a conversationalist, I never know what to say. But just ask the person about themselves, hobbies, career, etc..

  • If you could be an animal what could you be?
    If you could go anywhere in the world right now where would you go and why?
    Have you travelled (this can then lead on to other questions on the topic)
    Basically come up with anything random that can help break the ice but not go making it uncomfortable. When it comes to asking about sexual history I think that should be held off unless you both want to know the answer and are willing to share your past a bit to. However remember it is not something that is realistically important.

    Ask about their dream jobs, as they might not be in it right now but want to talk about it.
    Think of things you would love to be asked so it gives you an option to share also

  • Questions about favourite music, books, food, movies, etc. That kind of knowledge will pay off later on, for example when you'll be getting her a birthday present or taking her to eat out.

  • Questions about what the person likes or what this person thinks about certain topics. You want to get to know her so get to know her lol Ask whatever you want to ask her

  • 1. Ask about their interest, hobbies, long range desire to travel.

    2. Do not ask about whether they want to have children, how many, etc. You don't want to give the impression that you are already evaluating her potential as a future wife. . . even if that is exactly what you are doing.

    3. Ask about her taste in food, music, movies, preferred forms of entertainment. This should give you ideas about what to suggest for a second date.

    4. If she is family oriented, ask about her parents, siblings.

    5. Try to determine what areas of common interest you have. This gives you an area to discuss in detail and may promote some early bonding.

    6. Don't talk about sex unless she raises the topic.

    7. Unless you know you share the same beliefs, don't discuss religion or politics.

    8. An easy topic is to ask if she has any horror stories about first dates.


    I almost always mention this cartoon on a first date.

    9. "Are you as good a person as your dog thinks you are?"

    10. "What's the most important thing that you think someone should learn about you on a first date?"


  • Hobbies
    About themselves
    What if questions such as if you had won a lottery what would you do.
    Dreams for life. What they want to achieve.
    What is love to them. What they need the most when it comes to love.
    Likes and dislikes are common so ask it in other way. Like, if they had a chance to be in a movie, which movie it would be. What actor they would like to play.
    Things like that will keep her off the edge and interested in you.

  • What is your name? Haha but all jokes aside, i usually like to ask about their goals, what interests do they have, and just little things to see if we have anything in common.

  • "What food do you like/dislike"
    "Do you have any favourite films?"
    "Do you hve any favourite bands/genres of music"
    "If you could spend your Saturday doing anything you wanted, what would it be?"
    "Have you had any bad first dates?" (I like this one because it relieves tension really easily, basically tells you what not to do and they'll remember your date as one totally unlike one of those bad ones. It helps to have a bad story yourself.)

  • Long time a go in a universe , with only people , you could ask where is the person from what have they been up to and about , who are their parents or relatives and you don't want your boyfriend or girlfriend to be related to Jack the ripper , but this days I would say just make sure they are human and not related to the joker, check their fb page, what they like and do what irritates them, to cap it make it fun and you will have a full confession

  • Do you like dogs or cats? Are you a morning person? Did you vote for Hillary? What's something you're dying to try? What's the best part of your job? Do you like to travel? And finally (lol) . . . . . who's paying for all this?

  • The following video perfectly illustrates the best question to ask a girl on a date.


  • Ask about where they live , why and are they happy with the area.
    Then ask about friends, what they do together, how often. Favourite activities.

    The answers give you a really good insight to how they treat people close to them and how you will be treated if you enter the inner circle.

  • Are you religious ?
    Have you ever been in love before?
    What is your favourite drink?
    Are you close to your family?
    What is the best and worst thing that ever happend to you?
    What is your stance on politics left or right side?
    Do you like pets?
    If you had 3 wishes what would they be?
    Just ask random ice breakers :)

  • How do you feel is the best way we can get weird together?

    • Honestly, if you want to leave an impression, donโ€™t do or ask what she will think takes no thought. In other words, donโ€™t blend into the crowd... with stupid scripted questions people can download for a few bucks.
      There are a few things you should remember, one, girls like a pay attention to โ€œfeelingsโ€ expressed in words or in other ways. If you make a comment, or ask a question, let her know why you are asking it, based on how it makes you feel, either by wanting to know more about how she feels about what you are asking her. Or, why knowing her answer to her questions will make you feel, how? Different how? Or what feeling makes you want to ask her the question in the first place?
      If you want to ask a good question remember that and just be sincere, no matter how dumb the question
