#3 Are you close with your parents/family? This questions can get a little deep in some cases. But that isn’t such a bad thing. His relationship with his family and parents gives you a taste of his daily life.
Does he go home for Sunday dinners? Does he live at home? Or does he only see his family during the holidays?
#4 What is the most spontaneous thing you’ve ever done? This question provides such a collection of random answers. One guy’s answer might be skydiving. Someone else might say a trip to Europe out of the blue or I stole a car. Others could be called out sick to work so I could get my Star Wars poster signed.
This can show how compatible or opposite you are and even what you have in common.
#5 If you weren’t here right now where would you be? Personally I love this question. It lets you know if this person is having a good time or if they think they would be having more fun somewhere else.
If someone asked me this I would always say, “I’d rather be in bed watching Netflix.” So this answer can give you an idea of whether or not you would click on a more regular basis.
#6 Do you have any pets? Cats and dogs are something anyone with a soul and a lack of pet dander allergies is passionate about. Chatting about your unconditional love for your dog that won’t stop peeing on your favorite shoes gives a real connection and maybe some funny stories.
#7 What is a childhood TV show you would still watch now? Not only is nostalgia a trend, but reminiscing on your childhood loves can bring you closer. You may have grown up a country apart, but both woke up before everyone to watch your favorite cartoon when you were kids.
#8 What is your biggest pet peeve? As much as avoiding negativity is important with someone new, bonding over your mutual annoyances can be quite nice. Maybe you both hate when people don’t walk their grocery carts to the collector or when someone tips badly.
Although it sounds like a complaining game, what someone gets frustrated or annoyed by can show what they care about, even something as small as rushing when someone is waiting for you to cross the road.
