If you are going on a date and you are nervous about what you should ask him without sounding ridiculous or return empty handed without getting to know him, fear not. Here is a list of few questions for your rescue.
#1 What is something you are not good at?
This question will give you an insight about things he is “not so good at”. It is a great way to break the ice and have something more to talk about other than the food and weather. But do not ask this question directly. Start with your own flaws and get the conversation going.
#2 What is something you have done that you are most proud of?
Asking this question will help him be more confident in front of you and it will also help you to learn about the things he has achieved so far in life. It will give you an idea about his capabilities and passion.
#3 Who has been the biggest influence or inspiration in your life?
This question will reveal the mystery surrounding the important persons in his life. It will give you a glimpse into his head about the kind of people he admires and the qualities he looks for in them.
#4 What is your “escape” place?
The answer to this question will disclose what kind of person he is. Does he go to a pub or to a solitary place to make himself happy when he just wants to escape from this world says a lot about a person.
#5 What are your favourite books/movies and why?
It is very important to know about a person’s likes and dislikes if you really want to get to know a person. Usually a person looks for himself (not always) in the books he reads or the movies he watches.
#6 What is the best advice anyone ever gave you?
This is quite an interesting question, which might lead you to thought provoking answer. It will tell you what he values in life and a peep into his perception about life and people in general.
#7 What has been the luckiest moment of your life?
It will tell you about the things in his life he is grateful for and the things he does not expect to happen in life but wants to (that is why it is called being lucky).
#8 Are you logical or emotional?
It is a crucial question for the both of you. The way someone thinks decides largely how he is going to act. It is good to know “how” a person thinks along with “what” before you make a decision to sail the boat with him.
#9 What should I know about you that I would never think to ask?
Now, this question will open up his world for you (if he wants). The answer can be anything. And who knows where this might lead to?
