20 questions for dating

Here’s a variation on that, for your next dinner date or when you have some spare time. Is there a belief or attitude that seems to interfere with creating or pursuing a big dream? What are a couple of things that you appreciate about our relationship and why do these things seem significant? In what situations do you feel most afraid or insecure? What would you like to do outdoors that you have not done before?

Using the questions below, you can find out a little more about your partner and vice versa. Are there any extreme sports that you’d like to try? What country would you like to visit that you haven’t visited yet? What family member did you most admire when you were a child? What activities did your mother/father do that you most wish he’d taught you? What do you most wish you’d learned from your mother/father? Name 3 things that most excite your imagination when you imagine doing them? What question about our money or future spending do you find hard to ask?

This might not be important to you, but it might be. Why: The main point here is not to jump to assumptions about your date's politics. Why: If your date is exploring a relationship with someone else you might want to push pause at the end of your first date but offer them the opportunity to get back in touch with you if the other relationship doesn’t work out. Especially in the age of internet dating, people sometimes meet multiple people they’re interested in around the same time.

Why: This will tell you about your date’s preferences and also if they're someone who tends to reflect on experiences and can talk about their thoughts. Why: Tells you something about whether they seek out new experiences. What are your thoughts about the upcoming election (any upcoming election)?

Why: Are they very involved with their family of origin?
