If you are about to have your second date or a date further on in the beginning of a dating relationship, you can most likely begin to ask some deeper questions to get to know your date. On your first date, you probably covered the basic questions to ask your date, like where are you from? Where did you grow up? Where did you go to high school? Now it is time to ask some deeper questions so you can get to know them on a personal level. Here are some questions you can ask them.
1. Who are your top 3 inspirations in life? Who their role models are will reveal the person they desire to be. This question will show you the type of person they are striving to be and the type of person they respect.
2. What principles and personal values are important to you? Find out what their values are and find out their morals. Find out how high their standards are morally by asking this question. This is one of the most important things to know at the start of any relationship.
3. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Find out a little about their near future. 5 years is far enough down the road to find out what their dreams and ambitions are at the moment, and close enough to get to know the person and to watch and see if they are taking actions to making these dreams come true.
4. Describe your ideal way to spend an evening during a work-week? This question will allow you to find out how they wind down or relax. Do they read a book, watch their favorite TV show, listen to music, take a hot bath? The answer to the question can lead to more questions like what types of books do you read? What is your favorite TV show? What music do you listen to? Etc.
These are just a couple of questions that you can ask your date to get to know them a little more personally. As the dates increase in number, the conversation should deepen.
