35 Relationship Questions To Ask Your Significant Other

Whether you are dating someone new or have been together for years, it is important to be able to hold a conversation. When you first meet someone that you see a potential future with, you should want to get to know them. Likewise, you should want to continue to learn more about the person you have been with for an extended period of time. The best way to do this is by asking them questions. So skip the surface level questions about favorite colors or animals. Wouldn’t you rather dive straight into the deep, meaningful relationship questions?
