Getting To Know You Better: Dating Questions For Couples

Whether you’ve recently coupled up, or been going steady for a while - there will always be new things to learn about your partner.

One of the great things about romantic relationships is being able to see each other grow, evolve and change over time. Initially, there’s the pure bubbling excitement at the beginning of a new relationship.

Opening up and sharing is key to keeping this relationship flame glowing, no matter what stage of a relationship you’re at. And this is where dating questions for couples come in.

This is a fun one. Imagine hosting a dinner party where you’re able to invite anyone from history. Both you and your partner write down six people you’d like to invite.

What are some romantic questions to ask your partner?

For a more intimate approach, here are a set of questions to share with your partner. These are all about opening up about yourselves and strengthening your bond. Understanding each other’s goals, values, and expectations only deepens your understanding of one another. And these questions are - if we do say so ourselves - pretty romantic.

The big answer

Taking the time to sit down and connect can benefit your relationship, no matter how long you’ve been together.

How serious or playful you want to go is completely up to you and your partner. But the most important thing is to enjoy yourselves!
