If you scroll through online dating profiles, you will quickly notice a theme. People are interested in a variety of body types, hobbies, and world views. But, they almost all agree on a single characteristic.
Everybody seems to want to date people with a sense of humor.
The challenging part is finding that shared sense of humor, or if it exists at all. One way to approach this is with a few funny questions. These don’t need to be jokes themselves. Just open-ended questions that might stir up funny stories, memories, or even a hilarious debate or two. Check these out.
Is your date a secret metalhead? Do they work out to eighties pop? What about your playlist? Do you come off as more of a sixty-year-old easy-listening fan than a techno-pop club kid? To be honest, we all have guilty pleasures when it comes to music.
Why is this funny? Because someone’s first horror movie experience often involves a hilarious tale of sneaking into a theater or stealthing some R-rated viewing time while the parents are otherwise occupied. Besides, isn't it better to share movie-related trauma early in a relationship?
Does your date have fond memories of wallyball, four-square, or kickball? Then they are definitely a gym class traditionalist. What about basketball or running? In that case, absolutely a jock! What about you? Were you a rare student who looked forward to dancing, or did you spend more time smoking behind the gym than going to class?
Just like it sounds, finish the meme! I was today years old when I learned/realized…
Maybe you didn’t know that narwhals are a real animal or that you could play the weird jumping dinosaur game on chrome when your internet goes out. This is a great way to reveal fun, possibly embarrassing truths or experiences.
Seriously, those poor things could be starved by now!
We may be born with it, but we don’t always realize it. What’s the moment that made you realize, ”Yup I’m gay.”?
Everybody in your circle talks about it. People quote it as if everyone knows all about it. But for some reason, you just haven’t and you don’t really want to either.
Is it Bridgerton? Okay, maybe that’s just me. Still, everybody has at least one popular thing they can’t stand. Share what you got with your date!
Do you go crazy for mustard on french fries? Maybe your date does really really weird things with peanut butter. This could be a hilarious, slightly gross topic to explore.
Maybe your date has a horrible knock-knock joke they are dying to use. If nothing else, this is your time to tell the absolute zaddiest of zaddy jokes.
Here are ten more funny questions to make some amazing date conversations!
There are so many awesome things to discuss during a date. You could be trading makeup tips or asking one another these hilarious questions. Isn’t that better than discussing news, traffic, or the weather?
