Never stop discovering new things about your spouse.
Ask each other these questions and you’re guaranteed to laugh and learn something new!
You could ask each other these questions all at once, or do one a day for an entire month as a conversation starter.
So – my brother is dragging me off to an event, which I am really quite skeptical about. We have to be ready to drop one ‘title’ that doesn’t fit us and pick up the new one that fits us better.
However, thinking about it, I realise that it’s a pretty interesting challenge: What questions would you ask that would (a) give your enough info about the other person in a timescale, of e.g., 4 minutes, and (b) leave your partner thinking, “that was a lol…good one, Magnus! That is why we have names as human beings because no other title really sticks too long. I like to date unusual people, you wouldn’t by chance have a third, superfluous nipple, would you?
I’d ask if they’d be willing to sacrifice their own personal happiness for the sake of someone else’s. Or you could ask if they beleived in the 3 strikes law… I think you can get a pretty good idea of someone’s personality and character with those questions. - When you’re alone at home, do you wear shoes, socks, slippers, or go barefoot? Simple kinds of silly are necessary in life, and I refuse to settle for someone who can’t pick a toe. @nimis: ‘Growing up’ is for the birds; The version where you get rigid and stubborn in your thinking!
Tell them you really admire Sarah Palin’s career and ask them if they would put their plans on hold for you to pursue your dreams. It’s just a throwback to the high school lunch room for rich dummies with no game, or those who are at the last stop between “F—- Me Ville” and “Kill Myself Burg”. *Would you rather visit the arctic or the antarctic? – What is one wacky thing you believed was true as a child? – Do you prefer water from the tap or bottled water? But I have to say I think the format is pretty worthless. (I mean, yeah, I know it’s to get a date, but a date leading to what? Not just the socially acceptable thing to say.) I’ve done something very similar to speed dating, I asked the following: What is your favorite toe, be specific and be prepared to back up your answer. For many people their bodies grow up and grow old and their minds are still stuck at some point in their youth. /shrug @fireside: I really like your second question, very interesting! @madsmom1030: Those seems like questions for slow dating, so I will have to wait till I get back from Iraq to answer them, slowly; face to face.
Of course, going this route, they may end up remembering you as the girl they don’t want to call back.. If you can’t find poon on Craigslist or Myspace, you’ll only be short a few bucks and poonless after a round of Speed Dating. *Who is your oldest (had for the longest time) friend? *Will your neighbors someday tell the television crews that you seemed “like such a nice, quiet young man”? – Do you like crunchy or creamy peanut butter, or are you allergic to peanuts? – What was the coolest Halloween costume you ever had?
– Do you like to write with black or blue ink, or in pencil? – If you could be invisible for one day, who would you spy on?
– If you had to change your first name, what name would you choose? – If you were told that after you die you could be reborn as anything in the world, what would it be? – What’s one of the worst tasting things you’ve ever eaten? What kinds of things have you done in your life that you are really proud of?
