What Questions to Ask When Speed Dating?

If you ever decide to go speed dating (which can be fun), you will only probably get around 4 minutes to talk to the person, and that is not a long time! I mean, talk about pressure!

So how to leave a good impression on someone you only get to spend 4 minutes with? How to get your personality across to the other person in that short span of time, enough to leave them curious? ;) Well, that depends on how the conversation goes; and that depends on the kind of questions you ask each other, simple.

So the questions you ask should be best kept light and fun, but enough to find out more about someone’s personality and ideally not ones they can respond to with a “yes” or “no”.

Given below are some of our hand-picked fun and creative questions for you to ask on your next speed date:

  • Where do you live?

  • What is your biggest fear?

  • Are you religious?

  • What is your favorite film?

  • If you could invite anyone, dead or alive, to a dinner who would it be?

  • Who was your hero as a child?

  • What was your childhood dream job?

  • What was the first record you ever bought?

  • What do you do for fun?

  • What is one thing that is on your bucket list?

  • What makes you laugh?

  • What are you most passionate about?

  • What makes you cry?

  • What three words would your best friend use to describe you?

  • If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?

  • Are you an outdoor or an indoor person and what do you enjoy about that?

  • Who is your favorite actor/actress and why?

  • What is something you’re most knowledgeable about?

  • If you could visit any place in the world, where would you go and why?

  • Do you follow politics?

  • What book are you reading at the moment?

  • Are you a night owl or an early bird?

  • What’s expensive but worth it?

Some could highlight any potential deal breakers straight away and should give you an idea of whether you see a future with that person or not. Good luck on your next date!
