When you start talking to someone new, there are so many questions that you want to ask that someone new in order to have a brief understanding of who that person is. Not only that, but you want to make sure you are asking the right questions before you decide to date that person. Here are some questions that you should consider asking before dating the person you’re into!
1. What Are Your Hobbies?
It’s always good to know what that someone new likes to spend their spare time doing because in the end you might be spending your spare time doing it together. It could also tell you whether that someone new is athletic, outdoorsy, artistic, etc.
2. What Genre of Music And Movie Do You Prefer?
It’s also always good to know what type of music or movies that someone new likes because that can open up possible movie dates to movies you both are dying to see or to a concert performed by both of your favorite band. Even if you don’t have this in common, it gives you a good insight and the possible opportunity to experience a new genre.
3. What’s Your Family Like?
With this question, you can discover how many siblings that someone new might have along with the type of relationship they might have with them including the relationship they have with their parents. The way someone talks about their family can tell you if they are in a loving and healthy relationship with their family.
4. Do You Have Any Pets?
If you are a person who is a big animal lover, then this might be a great question to ask that someone new. It will help you discover if that someone new is an animal lover or a person who doesn’t appreciate pets or animals the way you do or don’t.
5. What’s Your Favorite Place In The World?
You can learn a lot about a person by this simple question.
6. Where Did You Grow Up?
This has a similar outcome as the previous question. Knowing where someone grew up can you inform you if that person is used to the suburban life or the city life. This question can also give you some insight into the lifestyle that person grew up in.
7. What’s Your Major?
This question is important because it can tell you that someone new’s strengths as well as what they are passionate about. For instance, if someone is studying biology in order to go to medical school and become a doctor so he or she can save lives shows that he or she are caring and want to help people.
8. What Do You Want To Do After College?
This question also goes hand in hand with the previous one because it is important to know what that someone new wants to do with their major. However, this question can also include if that someone new wants to spend time traveling the world or joining the peace corps giving you more insight to what he or she is passionate about.
9. What Have Your Past Relationships Looked Like?
This is not a question to understand your past competition. This is simply a question to see if that someone new has been in a long term and committed relationship before or if that someone new has ever been cheated on or has cheated on someone. Trust me, it’s important information.
10. How Intimate Have You Been With Previous Significant Others?
This may seem a bit awkward to ask before you start dating someone, but honestly, it is good to have an understanding of where you both stand on that spectrum. This can also lead to the discussion of how fast or slow you want to take this new relationship, if you decide to date the person.

Hey everybody! I am a junior studying English Writing while double minoring in Creative Writing and Music. I love to read, write, ski, travel, sail, and sing. I spend the majority of my time with my family and friends, but my "me" time consists of lots of reading and writing. I hope to one day be a published author and possibly work for a publishing house as an editorial assistant because who doesn't want to read for a living! That being said, I prefer to read science fiction & fantasy, romance, and historical fiction; and I enjoy reading about fairytales, folklore, and myths. Some of my favorite series are The Selection series by Kiera Cass, Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling, and the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer.
