Stuck for questions to ask a girl you just met? Well, fear not, as we’ve listed our top ten things to ask that will allow you to put your best foot forward. After all, getting to know your new crush is a surefire way to score that coveted first date…
1. You are going to live on a desert island, what three things would you take?
This is a great question to ask someone you have just met as it will give you an insight into their interests. For example, if her answers are more practical, she will appeal to the guy who is less materialistic, and someone who doesn’t like to waste money on extravagant purchases, such as jewelry and clothes. It also means she might be someone who is more inclined to create memories through moments, rather than with belongings.
2. What do you and your best friend like to do for fun?
What your crush enjoys doing with her friends is a good indication of the type of girl she is and what keeps her committed in a relationship. Her answer will give you an insight into her tastes, and whether she is someone who enjoys the great outdoors or is more of a girly-girl. You should be able to find out whether she’s the type who prefers getting dressed up and going for a fancy dinner, as opposed to hiking up a mountain.
3. What’s your favourite flower?
This is a good answer to keep in your back pocket as you will certainly get brownie points and make a great first impression if you bring a bunch of her favourite blooms to the first date!
4. What was your first impression of me?
Avoid being overly sensitive when she gives her answer, as more often than not, first impressions are all about physical appearance. As soon as you discover what first caught her eye, you can either laugh about it together or work on emphasizing that particular feature.
5. What was your most embarrassing moment?
It may be high school-related or even something that happened only a few hours ago, but this is a good question to ask if you wish to determine whether she is able to laugh at herself, and a great question to ask if you consider yourself as a bit of a joker.
6. Are you looking for true love?
Knowing what your crush is looking for is an important question to ask and one that will help you to determine whether you’re both on the same page. It’s good to get this question out of the way prior to the first date, as she may be looking for something casual, whilst you could be looking for the girl you want to marry.
7. What one word would your friends use to describe you?
This is a good icebreaker question because it opens up the conversation in a playful manner. It also tells you more about the type of girl she is, be that fun, loving, intelligent, clumsy, or bossy!
8. If you could take me to one place in your hometown, where would it be?
Irrespective of whether she still lives there or not, it is likely she holds one specific place close to her heart. The type of place she chooses will tell you a lot about her. If it’s a fancy restaurant, you’ll know she has style (and where to book if you ever need a date option), while if it’s a beach, you will know she has a love for the ocean.
9. What would be your last meal be?
What better way to get to know your date than to ask her about her all-time favourite food? This is also a good answer to keep in mind, as you can surprise her by cooking her beloved meal, or by taking her to a restaurant that serves it if you end up going on a second or third date.
10. If you could travel anywhere in the world and cost wasn’t an issue, where would you go?
This is the perfect question to ask if you want to find out more about her personality, as it will tell you whether she is adventurous or more of a homebody. It’s always a good idea to know you share the same tastes before taking the relationship further.
All of the above questions are guaranteed to help you when it comes to getting to know a girl you just met, and if you do get that first date, why not surprise her with a bouquet of beautiful blooms? You can either bring them to the date or send them directly to her door with a note that says ‘dinner this Saturday?’
