Dating Questions That Help Make Your Dates Much Brighter

Thursday, 10 October 2013

Wouldn't it be nice if real life was more like the movies? There's a reason everyone loves romantic comedies and epic novels. These fictitious works are better than life, at least in terms of dialog. They speak eloquently and beyond what most people say in any conversation. While you probably can't write like a TV writer, there is no reason why you can't spruce up your dating conversations and make them a little more interesting. You can ask your date questions that stimulate funny, quirky interactions, just like in a movie or book. Hey, who says life has to be tedious?

Now some experts will suggest that treating your date like a job applicant is a good idea, because it gets your partner to really talk. That does have some logic to it, but when you think about it, don't you think a job interview is kind of a miserable experience? No one really wants to bring that formal, stuffy language into a relaxed date conversation.

Dating Questions That Work

Dating questions are not "free reign" to be rude or shocking. There has to be some rhyme and reason for them, and even if the questions are funny, they have to have value. Naturally, some topics are taboo. You know, the usual like religion and politics. Don't waste time winding your date up when you could just tease, amuse, and flirt. Focus exclusively on conversations about yourself and your view of the world. There will be plenty of time to talk about heavy issues later on.

You can come up with some fun questions on your own but if you need a bit of extra help, to keep your date interesting you may want to try some of the questions below. You will notice they are open ended and conversation starters.

1. What person has had the greatest influence in your life?

2. When was the last time you had a good belly laugh?

3. What's on your bucket list?

4. Who is your favorite person in the world?

5. Who is your favorite comic book character?

6. What three things do you expect to do this year?

7. What are you pet hates?

8. What's your favorite restaurant?

9. What character in English literature do you resemble most?

10. What do you love about your job?

11. When was the last time you've been really surprised?

12. What has been your favorite memory in life, both as a child and as an adult?

13. Who is your favorite world leader or peace activist of all time?

14. Who is your favorite band?

15. What was the last terrible movie you watched?

16. What is your worst date experience ever?

17. Do you have a favorite place to be alone to think about things?

18. What would be your dream career or life?

19. Have you ever been pranked or pranked someone else?

20. What was the last weird dream you had?

21. Who was your favorite teacher?

22. What is your personal philosophy in life?

23. What character on "The Simpsons" are you?

24. Any X-Files stories to share? Have you ever seen anything weird or scary?

25. What would a book based on your life be called?

Dating questions are like a game. You can expand the conversation or move on if the question does not work. This is a small intellectual challenge and can be fun. Some singles really enjoy confessing their funny stories. That can be fun, but conversely they can also make the other person feel very uneasy. Sometimes personal questions can be a gamble, for example, if your partner has suffered a trauma, so it's best to stay away from real-life scares and drama.

Use discretion and don't push your luck if things are getting awkward. Keep things friendly and natural sounding. Don't rehearse too much. Having said that know there are always boundaries you have to stay clear of and you can usually tell how your date feels about an off-limits conversation.
