Good questions to ask the girl you just met

When you’re trying to come up with questions to ask a girl you just met, putting your best foot forward is key to scoring the coveted first date. Have some fun and peak your crush’s curiosity by asking these twenty interesting questions.

Questions to get acquainted with the girl you just met

1. What one word would your friends use to describe you?

This is a great icebreaker question because it opens up the conversation without your crush having to come up with a super long answer. Remember, she’s probably just as nervous as you are.

2. If you could take me one place in your hometown, where would it be?

Whether she still lives there or hasn’t visited in years, there’s probably one special place that she holds dear to her heart. The type of place she chooses will tell you a lot about whether she’s more of an introvert or an extrovert.

3. What would your last meal be?

What better way to get to know a girl than to ask her about her favorite food? Whatever her answer is, tuck it into your back pocket to pull out later when you want to cook her a romantic meal at home.

4. If you could travel anywhere in the world and cost weren’t an issue, where would you go?

This will tell you a lot about whether she’s the adventurous type or more of a homebody. It’s important that you two are compatible when it comes to travel because going on trips is something that brings a couple closer together.

5. Your house is on fire and you can only save three things. What are they?

Are her answers more practical or materialistic? If you’re a guy who doesn’t like to waste money on extravagant things and she chooses clothes, jewelry, and makeup as her answer, you might want to move on before you get caught up in something you can’t handle.

6. What do you and your best friend like to do for fun?

What they enjoy doing will be a good indication of the type of girl your crush is and what keeps her committed in all kinds of relationships.

7. What’s your favorite song from the decade you were born?

One of the most sensitive questions to ask a girl you just met is their age. Spinning the question this way will give you a rough idea of her age without having to ask her outright.

8. First impression of me- what was it?

Try not to take her answer too personally since most first impressions are all about physical appearance. Once you find out what first caught her eye you can work on emphasizing that feature.

9. What was your most embarrassing moment?

It might be something as far back as high school or even something that happened last week. If she’s able to laugh at herself through the embarrassment that will give you a good idea of how well she handles the challenges that life throws at her.

10. Are you looking for true love?

Knowing what your crush is looking for prior to the first date will give you clues on how to act around her. If she’s just looking for a hookup, spending hours sending her sweet texts and buying her flowers will be a waste of time.

11. What annoys you most?

Getting down to the nitty gritty of what drives her crazy will help you avoid becoming one of her pet peeves.

12. Would you rather watch a movie or take a hike?

Is she more of an indoor enthusiast or a nature lover? You’ll be spending a lot of time together if you start dating so you want to make sure you have similar interests.

13. Do you believe in any spiritual beings?

This may be a touchy subject, but knowing whether she believes in God or another spiritual being is important. If your relationship turns serious, you’ll eventually be merging your lives together and this may play a very critical role in the future.

14. What quote do you try to live by?

Most people have a quote or saying that they try to apply to their life. If your quotes are similar, you have a good chance of getting along.

15. Is there anything that really turns you on?

Let’s face it- you’re looking to date this girl. That means you’ll eventually be getting to know her on a physical level. You want to know what gets her going so that you’re both satisfied physically.

16. What is the worst thing an ex has ever done to you?

We’ve all been hurt in past relationships. It’s important you know what’s hurt her in the past so you don’t make those same mistakes.

17. Which family member are you closest to?

This is a good way to find out if her parents are still alive without having to ask the question outright. Family relationships can be a sensitive topic, but knowing who she’s closest to will give you a good indication of how important family is to her.

18. What’s the worst pickup line you’ve ever heard?

Remember, you’re trying to impress this girl so knowing what turns her off will let you know what lines to avoid. No one wants to be that guy with the cheesy pickup lines.

19. Romance- how do you define it?

Holding hands, a cute text, flowers and candy? Knowing how she defines romance will give you an idea of what to do to win over her heart.

20. Where are we going on our first date?

A not-so-subtle way to ask her out, this puts her in the driver’s seat when it comes to the planning which will intrigue most girls and get her excited to go out with you.
