There’s a lot of advice out there about finding a partner – what to do on a first date, which dating app to use, how to put yourself out there – but what about when you’ve finally bagged someone? Then what? What if you’re on your 67th date and find you have nothing left to talk about? Do not fear! I am here with 10 fun relationship questions that are guaranteed to provide you and your partner with convo topics.
1. If the world was ending tomorrow, how would we spend today?
This is a fun twist on that old “if you had one day to live” cliche, but this time your partner has to think about what the two of you would do together. And it doesn’t have to be dirty! This fun relationship question is quite sneaky, too – whatever they answer, you can try to plan as a surprise for your next date, and become the official best girlfriend or boyfriend in the world.
2. What was your first impression of me?
This is a fun one because not only do you get an insight into your partner’s mind, you can also compare how that impression has changed, whether their gut feeling was right or not. Was it love at first sight, or a slow burner? This is a good way to find out!
3. Can you describe our first date?
This is my absolute favourite fun relationship question, and I love hearing my boyfriend describe our first date to me (I make him do it all the time…). It’s cute, it’s nostalgic, and it’s so interesting hearing about it from their perspective. How nervous were they feeling? Did they pick up on the same moments and looks as you? Ask away!
4. What’s your favourite memory of our relationship?
You’ll most definitely have your own favourite memories, but what are your partner’s? You might find it’s something you’d completely forgotten about, or wouldn’t have considered yourself. Again, it’s really nice to hear about this from your partner’s perspective as there might be things you missed.
5. What song reminds you of me?
A classic fun relationship question, this will really make them think, and it might not be the answer you expected. Maybe it’s the song they listened to on the way home from your first date, maybe it’s a song you haven’t even heard but the lyrics remind them of you, it won’t necessarily be your song, which makes it all the more interesting to find out.
6. Who would play us in the movie of our relationship?
This is such a fun head scratcher and incredible insight for you. Would you be a Hollywood power couple, or more of an edgy, indie partnership? And would your film have a happy ending? Only one way to find out…
7. What are your deal-breakers?
As well as being one of the super fun relationship questions, these are also just good and important to know. They might range from the silly, such as “could never be with an Ed Sheeran fan,” to the more serious, like a need to share political views. It might make you have a think about your own deal-breakers, too.
8. If we could go anywhere in the world, where would we go?
Traveling with your partner is an amazing way to see the world. But where would they take you? This says a lot about a person. Paris, the city of love? Bit of a cliche but obviously super romantic. Or are they more adventurous – Tokyo, perhaps? Planning your dream holiday is such a fun thing to do in a relationship.
9. Will our first pet be a cat or a dog, and what will we name it?
Is your partner a cat person or a dog person? This fun relationship question will reveal what may be a deal-breaker for you, and brainstorming names can be hilarious – is your partner as keen as you to name your clan of pets after the Kardashians?
10. Where do you see us in 5 years time?
Okay. This is a biggie. If you’re just starting out in your relationship, you might want to wait a little while before you pop this question or risk your partner running a mile. But I think it can be really fun to talk about the future, even if it’s uncertain. Where do you dream you’ll be? Planning and wishing can bring you closer together, and reveal a lot about your own hopes and ambitions. Fun relationship questions can help you learn a lot about your partner.
