The dating stage is more than just hanging out in fancy restaurants and giggling like lovestruck teenagers while holding hands. It’s your opportunity to truly get to know each other.
You want to know if this person meets your standards. You also want to find out the things he cares about, and you cannot have that information unless you ask some crucial dating questions. Here are some good examples to get you started.
1. What do you like about me?
You probably know why you’re attracted to him, but do you know what he finds attractive about you? Revealing what you like about each other gives you an idea of the expectations you have. For instance, if he says he likes you because you’re quick-witted, you know that’s a quality he appreciates. It also helps you know if he likes something superficial and helps you measure how much depth he has.
2. What was your most memorable experience growing up?
This is another one of the good questions to ask. The childhood memories that often stick out to us say a lot about what influenced us growing up. This question encourages him to open up to you as you explore his response.
3. Do you love what you do?
Asking how he feels about his career or business can also give you a chance to gauge how satisfied he is with his life overall. You can open up the conversation and give him the chance to talk about whatever future plans he may have to change or improve things.
4. What lesson did you learn from your last heartbreak?
We all learn a lot from heartbreaks and we carry those lessons to subsequent relationships. So, this is a particularly interesting question to ask.
5. What’s your idea of a perfect day?
Instead of asking vague questions, this is a better way to phrase your question. He will surely mention all of his favorite things to do.
6. If you win the lottery tomorrow, what’s the first thing you’ll buy?
His answer will tell you a lot about his personality.
7. What do you think is the biggest problem in the world today?
This is one of the questions to ask if you really want to get into his mind and understand what his values are.
8. What do you think is the most attractive quality you have?
It’s your way of asking what he thinks he has to offer you. You’ll also get to know how confident he really is.
