100+ Good Questions to Ask a Girl

Updated on January 22, 2017

Perhaps one of life’s greatest adventures is falling in love. There’s nothing that quite compares with that fluttery feeling you get when you meet someone new with whom you share so much in common! It’s like the more you get to know them, the more and interesting they become.

As wonderful as getting to know someone may be, it can also be quite nerve-wracking if you go into a encounter unprepared! Before you go asking a bunch of questions, make sure your date or potential date feels comfortable around you, and that you do not cross any uncomfortable boundaries. After all, your overall goal is to secure a second (and third and fourth…) date, right?

So, let’s not make it feel like an interrogation, and make sure you also answer your own questions while leaving plenty of opportunity for them to ask you questions as well! Now onto the questions.
