It’s a dilemma we all face – how soon is too soon to ask the tough questions? After the first date, you’ll be wondering whether it’s worth your time and energy to plan out a second. Should you wait for more information or dive right into finding out more about this person? With that in mind, here are some important questions to consider asking on your second date. Doing so will help ensure compatibility and set up successful future dates with someone special!
1. What are your thoughts on relationships?
Do they believe in monogamy? Do they think that communication and trust are important in a relationship? What do they think makes a relationship successful?
2. What are your thoughts on children?
Do they want children someday? If so, how many? What are their thoughts on parenting?
3. What is your favorite memory from childhood?
This question can help you to learn more about their family life growing up, as well as what kind of things they enjoyed doing as a child.
4. What is your favorite thing to do for fun?
Do they enjoy spending time outdoors or indoors? Are they active or more passive in their leisure time? Do they like to be alone or around others when they relax?
5. What are your thoughts on religion/spirituality?
Do they consider themselves spiritual but not religious? Do they practice a specific religion? Do they believe in God, and if so, what is their concept of God?
6. What are your thoughts on politics?
Are they conservative, liberal, or somewhere in the middle? How do they feel about the current political situation in the country/world? Who are some of their favorite political figures?
7. What is your favorite thing about yourself?
This question can help you to learn more about their self-esteem and confidence levels. It can also be a fun question to answer for yourself as well!
Now that you have some ideas of things to discuss on a second date, remember to relax and be yourself. The point of these questions is not to interrogate your date or make them feel like they’re on the witness stand, but rather to get to know them better. Have fun with it and enjoy getting to know someone new!
