It’s tough to come up with 25 first date questions you should consider asking. On the one hand, you don’t want to step on toes and ruin the date, but on the other hand, you need to learn about the person before moving forward.
So, asking first date questions are necessary. Yes, the “getting-to-know-each-other” stage is sometimes the most romantic part of the relationship. It can be filled with butterflies, hand-holding, and lovey-dovey eye gazing. But, come on, you need to know if they were married or been involved in a first-degree burglary. Right? Yeah, we thought so, too. So, to help you out, here are 25 first date questions you should consider asking.
"Which political party do you agree with the most?"
Finding out where they stand politically, whether it be Republican, Democratic or part of the Green Party, is important. It can help you understand their opinions on certain government issues.
"Do you smoke/vape?"
Smoking cigarettes or vaping can be an annoyance to a new partner. Before you even start the relationship it’s a good idea to let them know about any guilty pleasures.
"Do you live on your own?"
We get it, some people go back to living with their parents after college to save money. However, living with your parents when you’re in your 30’s isn’t the best look.
"How long have you been single?"
Asking how long they have been single for is a good way to find out if your a rebound or not. Also, having time to mentally and emotionally recover from a breakup is healthy.
"Do you have any debt?"
Once you’re married, their debt could become your debt. It’s good to know before you start a relationship what kind of spending habits your partner has. Keep in mind, student loan debt is different than maxing out multiple credit cards.
