Whether it's your first date or your thirtieth, you can always ask questions to get to know someone better.Try some general ones like these or choose a theme and let the conversation roll from there. Name three things you and your partner appear to have in common.9. If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be? If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about yourself, your life, the future or anything else, what would you want to know? Is there something that you've dreamed of doing for a long time? If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be? Take four minutes and tell your partner your life story in as much detail as possible.12. Are they the type of person who's likely to be an open book with their answers and willing to laugh them off with you, or are they more guarded and probably worried about sharing too much?Relationships can get boring if they stay perpetually on the same track.From pop culture and phone apps to old favorites and magazine subscriptions, learning about a person's media preferences can give you insight into who they are early in a relationship.
If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year-old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want?
You could set this up as a game and ask each other as many "favorites" type questions as possible within an allotted amount of time.
Asking someone what their favorite things are, will give you a lot of information in a short amount of time, and it usually won't feel like you're prying (especially if you are both answering the questions). Before you launch into questions that could potentially have embarrassing answers, gauge how the other person is feeling.
When both of you expect the same activities, same foods, same conversations and so on, even the most committed may begin to look elsewhere for excitement.
Keeping a relationship strong and happy, therefore, requires that both of you are fulfilled by one another and that you keep each other on your toes. As I explain on my site, asking each other questions that broaden the scope of the topics you discuss helps you and your partner dig into each other's inner thoughts and feelings, and enables you to share in ways you never thought possible.
