Do you remember when you first started dating your spouse… you’d talk for hours, asking questions, listening to their stories, your heart would soar as they looked into your eyes while you were talking, like you were the only person in the world…
That whole ‘getting to know you phase’ is pretty darn magical. But one of the big mistakes is that so many couples forget that asking questions, talking, and listening to each other is the best way to keep the connection alive in your relationship.
Good questions help you get to know each other but the right questions spark a great conversation, and that’s exactly what these questions are designed to do.
Sometimes it really is the little things, like a daily conversation or learning something new about each other, that really make the biggest difference in your relationship.
Why Use Romantic Questions For Couples
If you haven’t discovered yet, questions can be a powerful tool for sparking conversation and deepening intimacy in a relationship. In the early stages of a romance (that heart fluttery stage), questions can help couples get to know each other and learn about each other’s hopes, dreams, aspirations, and cute quirks.
As the relationship grows, questions can continue to play an important role by helping couples explore new topics and keep the conversation fresh.
One of the biggest complaints I hear from couples is that they are ‘bored’ in their relationship, and my go-to response is always “when was the last time you asked a new or fun question?”
Some couples like to ask each other provocative questions that push boundaries and stimulate creativity (both in and out of the bedroom); while others prefer to stick to more traditional questionnaires for couples that focus on shared values and experiences.
No matter what type of question you choose to ask, remember that the key is to keep the conversation flowing, listen to each other, and enjoy each other’s company.
By asking thoughtful questions and really listening to the answers, you can keep the spark alive in your relationship for years to come.
How To Use These Questions
You can use these questions as is, or you can use them as a starting point to create your own unique questions.
To get the most out of these questions, it’s important to be an active listener. That means really paying attention to your partner’s answers and using follow-up questions to get more information.
It can also be helpful to have a conversation about what kinds of questions you’re both comfortable answering. Some people feel shy about sharing certain things, while others might find some questions too personal.
While the idea of the questions is to create conversations and respond in as much detail as possible, it’s also important to respect your partner’s wishes and boundaries. If a topic is not up for discussion, put it aside and revisit at a later time, or talk later about why you don’t want to talk about it.
Also, keep in mind that timing is everything. You need to ask these questions at the right time, not as you’re rushing out the door or falling asleep after a big day.
With that being said, these are some ideas for ways you can use these questions:
- use them as interesting questions to ask each other on your road trip
- make your next date night a fun questions night at home (get creative and build a blanket fort or lay on a blanket outside under the stars…)
- write out the questions and put them into a ‘daily questions jar’. Draw one out each day and discuss it over dinner
Feel free to get creative, have fun, and enjoy the romantic questions and the closer connection that these questions helps you to build.

Asking your partner these types of questions can help you to get to know them on a deeper level and create a stronger connection between you.
It’s important to remember that every relationship is different and there is no perfect formula for a successful relationship.
However, by communicating openly, being honest with each other, and showing appreciation for each other, you can create a solid foundation for a lasting and loving relationship.
While talking about a past relationship may not be your favorite subject, talking through your experiences, why you feel the way you feel, why you want or expect certain things in your relationship, and what is important in a relationship can be an incredibly powerful communication tool in your relationship.
Let us know how you went with asking these questions and how you included them in your relationship.
