Speed Dating: Questions to ask!

Being well prepared with engaging speed dating questions will not only ensure full enjoyment of the evening, you can actually learn a surprising amount about a person from even the most seemingly trivial questions. We don't want you to see this as a job interview, but you do have to make a good impression in 3 minutes, as well as learning as much as you can about your date.

Having another person show real interest is extremely flattering, so asking interesting speed dating questions should score good points with your date, but best of all, being well prepared with good questions will allow your dates to see you at your very best - relaxed, sociable and confidently out-going. Feel free to use any of these as they are, or as a starting point to inspire your own, and remember to email us your favourites at the address below!

Semi serious (Interview) questions

  • What are you most proud of in your life?
  • Where do you see yourself in five years' time?
  • What 3 words would your best friend use to describe you?
  • If you had only six months to live, what would you do first?
  • Are you an outdoor or an indoor person and what do you enjoy about that?
  • What would you prefer, a day at the races or a night at the theatre?

More Casual light-hearted questions

  • What do you do for fun?
  • Who was your hero as a child?
  • Do you believe that the cup is half empty or half full?
  • If they made a film of your life what star would you like to play you?
  • If you could time travel to the past to correct any mistakes you feel you've made, would you?
  • If you won the lottery, how would you spend your millions?
  • If you were an animal in the wild, what would you be?
  • What was the first record you ever bought?
  • Where in the world would you most like to be this weekend and why?
  • What luxury item would you take on a desert island?
  • What makes you laugh?
  • What makes you cry?
  • What is your favourite word and why?
  • If you have friends coming for supper what would you cook?
  • If you could be someone else for a day, who would it be?
  • Would you rather climb a mountain or trek across a desert?
  • If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
  • If you could be successful at any job in the world, what would that job be?
  • Describe your perfect Sunday morning?
  • What did you do today that made you feel good?

More Fun Speed Dating Questions:

  • What would you take with you to a desert island and why?
  • If you had to be someone else for a day, who would you be and why?
  • If you could invite anyone, dead or alive, to dinner, who would it be?
  • If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
  • What would be your ideal holiday destination?
  • What's the most crazy, reckless thing you've ever done?
  • If you were to star in a movie, who would you like as your co-star?
  • What would be the title of your biography?
  • What is your favourite takeaway meal?
  • If you were given £1,000 tomorrow, what would you spend it on?

Also best to know what not to ask

It's generally not a good idea to ask someone where he or she lives until you know them a little better, and asking what they do for a living isn't considered very original.

It's wise to avoid weighty or sensitive areas such as politics and religion, and as far as your own answers go, you won't be showing yourself in the best light if you rattle on about your previous dates, how you miss your ex and how much you used to love sex!

Here's a nice video which demonstrates some basic mistakes! Enjoy!
