Dark horse questions that work

So you’re single, looking to date and stuck in the swipe grind. If you’re looking for a little spark you just need to know the right questions to ask. And I’m not talking about boring questions like “What do you do for a living?” or “Where are you from?” I’m talking about fun, flirty questions that will help you get to know your date in a more intimate way. Just be prepared to answer them yourself – no cheating! You might just learn something about yourself too.

So, without further ado, here are 9 questions to ask your date:

1. “What’s something that you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t because you’re too scared?”

We are defined by our fears and how we deal with them. If you want to know what’s most important in a person’s life this is a fantastic place to start.

2. “What was the last thing you wished for that came true?”

We’re not afraid of a little hard work, and we know it takes a lot to make our dreams a reality. This is a great way of getting some insight into what motivates and excites your partner. Learn about the obstacles that stood in their way, and how they overcame them.

3. “What’s the weirdest thing you’ve done this year?”

Weird stories are the best, and what’s weird for some might not be weird for others, which is why this one is great for a good natter. Nothing’s says a good laugh more than a little vulnerability.

4. “What’s your favourite guilty pleasure?”

We all have something we can’t give up. My guilty pleasure is Bargain Hunt, for others, it might be a very large, secret stash of Biscoff Butter (mine too). What are yours?

5. “What’s something that you’re always bringing up in conversation?”

If your date is always talking about one thing, it’s definitely worth hearing what they have to say on the matter.

6. “What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received?”

We want to be the best version of ourselves, and we want our partners to see that. This question lets you know what our partner like to be appreciated for.

7. “What’s your favourite way to spend a lazy day?”

Sitting at home watching Bargain Hunt and eating a lot of Biscoff butter? Just me… 😳

8. “If you could leave on a plane tomorrow, where would you go?”

We all have a list of places we’d love to go and things we’d love to do. Get a glimpse into your partner’s dream escapes, see how compatible the two of you are, and get a few holiday ideas for later down the line.

9. “What’s the worst date you’ve ever been on? What made it so bad?”

We’ve all been there, and it’s never fun. Gauge how much you have in common with your date, by your turn off and also learn what to avoid if things go well.
