When you meet someone you like, you want to get to know them better. The sooner you get to know them, the sooner you will know if the relationship will go anywhere. Also, the sooner you get to know one another, the sooner the relationship can go from a friendship to something more.
It can be difficult to know what kinds of questions to ask. If you don’t ask the right questions, you won’t learn the important things. Also, asking the wrong questions can make things weird between the two of you.
The questions below will help you learn a lot about the person, and they can spark some very interesting conversations.
#1 What Shows Do You Binge-Watch?
This is a great question for two reasons. First, you have a show in common; you can make plans to watch it together. Also, you can talk about the show. You can discuss the highs and lows of the show and your favorite and least favorite characters. Having a show in common will give you plenty to talk about.
#2 What Is Your Favorite Restaurant?
This question can be beneficial if your relationship goes from friendship to dating. When you know your crush’s favorite restaurant and favorite food, you will know where to go when you go on a real date. This question will also allow you to find out if you have favorite foods in common.
#3 What Do You Do When You Have Time Off?
This question will give you an idea of what your crush is interested in. It can also tell you what type of person they are. For example, if your crush tells you that they spend all of their free time playing video games and you hate gaming, you will know early that things probably won’t work out.
If you enjoy doing the same thing when you have time off, you can make plans to do it together.
#4 What Is Something You Have Always Wanted To Try But Haven’t?
This is a great question because it is something that can bring you closer. If the item on their bucket list is something that you have always wanted to do or at least are willing to try, you can do it together. Helping them reach their goal can bond the two of you forever. Also, when you do it together, your crush will never forget you.
#5 When Was Your Last Relationship?
This is an essential question that should be asked very early on. If your crush has been single for a while, chances are they are ready to get back into the game. However, if they have been single for just a couple of weeks, they might not be ready for a relationship, and you could end up stuck in the friend zone. This question will also open the door for a conversation about their last relationship without feeling like you are prying.
#6 Why Did Your Last Relationship End?
If you didn’t get much out of your crush’s last relationship after asking when their last relationship was, this is an excellent question to ask. Before you think about starting a relationship with your crush, you need to know if they have baggage. For example, if their ex cheated on them, they are going to have trust issues. If the relationship was violent, they are going to have serious issues regarding relationships. This question will give you an idea of what to expect if the relationship moves past a friendship.
#7 What Do You Do For a Living?
If you don’t already know what your crush does for work, you should ask. It is important that you know how they spend their days if things are going to move past the friendship phase. This question can also spark a deeper conversation. For example, if your crush waits tables for a living, you can find out what they really want to do with their life. This will show them that you are interested, and you can offer to help them reach their goals. Showing that you care about their future will go a long way if you are trying to get out of the friend zone.
#8 Are You Religious?
This is a very important question because it can affect your lives if things get serious. For example, if you are a religious person and your crush isn’t, it can make things difficult. If things get serious, you will want to go to church and observe holidays, and you will need to do these things alone. It is best to find out early what your crush’s religious beliefs are.
#9 Do You Like To Travel?
This is a great question to ask, especially if you feel strongly one way or the other about traveling. If you hate to fly and road trips aren’t your thing, the relationship won’t work if your crush loves to travel. If things get serious, you could find yourself home alone for weeks at a time while your significant other is jet-setting across the world. If you love to travel and they don’t, you could end up visiting amazing places alone because your significant other doesn’t want to go. Asking this question early can save you the frustration later.
#10 What Can Always Put You In a Good Mood?
Asking this question will give you information that you may need later. If you are talking to your crush and they had a horrible day, you can make plans to do whatever it is that puts them in a good mood. Not only will they feel better, but they will appreciate that you went out of your way to cheer them up.
#11 Do You Want To Have Children Someday?
This is a crucial question to ask, but you have to ask the right way. If you come out and ask if they want kids, they might get the feeling that you are ready to settle down now and have a family. Because things are so new, this can scare your crush off.
It is best to add the word “someday” at the end of the question. This will let your crush know that you are talking about the future and not now.
This question should be asked early. If you have always dreamed of having a family and your crush never wants children, there is no future for the two of you. It is impossible to change someone’s mind about having children. If you don’t ask the question early, you could be bringing on a lot of pain, and the relationship will be a waste of time.
#12 What Does Your Ideal Saturday Night Look Like?
This question will give you an idea of the type of person your crush is. If they love to spend their day out doing things then hit the club at night, it could be an issue if you are a homebody. If your idea of a great night is ordering takeout and watching movies on the couch, your crush might not be the right person for you.
#13 Where Do You See Yourself In Five Years?
If you think that your crush could be the one, you should find out where they see themselves in five years. This question can help you learn a lot about your crush. For example, if they still see themselves at the same job and living in the same apartment, they might not be the right person for you. You want to be with someone who is always trying to better themselves and their lives. If your crush is happy staying in one place, it can cause issues as the relationship progresses.
#14 Are You Close With Your Family?
This is a great question because it will give you a chance to learn more about your crush. If they are close with their family, they will open up about each family member. It will also let you know what their childhood was like. These are important things to know if your relationship moves past the friendship phase.
#15 How Do You Feel About Me?
This can be a terrifying question to ask, but eventually, it needs to be addressed. If you have been talking to your crush for weeks and things aren’t progressing as quickly as you would like, you won’t know what is really going on until you ask. If your crush doesn’t want anything more than a friendship, it is best to find out early. The last thing you want is to be waiting for your crush to ask you out, and it never comes. They could be interested in you as more than a friend, but they may have been afraid because they don’t know how you feel. Asking this question is the best way to get everything out in the open, giving you a chance to decide what your next step needs to be.
Many people today jump into relationships with someone they barely know. These relationships don’t always last. After a month or two, when you finally start getting to know each other, you could find out that you have nothing in common and things will end. It is best to ask questions early before things turn romantic. These questions can prevent you from wasting time on a dead-end relationship.
