1. "What's in your fridge?"


This usually gives some insight into your date's quirky home habits.

2. "What is your favorite childhood memory?"

You'll get to hear about what they were like as a child and who they were closest to. You could also find out what was important to their parents.

3. "What are you worse at than 90% of the population?"

You'll get to figure out if the person has a sense of humor about themselves.

4. "Would you rather fight a horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses?"

Knowing their fighting skills and powers of deduction are the most necessary evils when sizing up your date.

5. "What do you feel people take for granted the most?"

The answer is usually something that brings them joy that is void of material things, so you get to take a peep into their ~heart~.

6. "What was the last book you read?"

Gotta know what kind of brain they have in that head of theirs.

7. "What's the most thoughtful gift you've ever received?"

Usually the answer isn't about the present, but rather who gave it to them — so you'll learn about someone who is important to them!

8. "What fact about you surprises people the most?"

Now things could get weird... or you could learn something adorable, like they shelter orphaned puppies in their spare time.

9. "Where do you feel most relaxed?"


You'll find out where your date feels at their best. This is also an opportunity for their freak flag to fly.

10. Then things could get more serious: "What's in your ideal burrito?"

This is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. What if they prefer American cheese to cheddar? Things could get ugly.

11. "Who would play you in a movie?"

(Also good for gauging someone's knowledge of famous peeps.)

12. "In your personal opinion, who is the voice of our generation?"

13. "Wanna endorse me on LinkedIn?"
