As either as a new couple. Or a couple that has been together for years. Asking questions can be a great way to get to know each other better. And can bring two people closer. It's fun to ask questions over a dinner date. Or on an evening when the fire is on. These questions for couples are guaranteed to bring two people closer together.

Be sure to prepare your partner with these questions. Inform them that you'd like to ask conversation questions. And once they're comfortable, ask your partner the following questions. It's advised to pick the questions that your partner feels comfortable with.

Where to Ask These Questions for Couples

It's best to ask these during a nice date. Or when there's free time. And when two people are feeling "bored." Print the list of questions and then ask them together in order to build a stronger relationship.

It can be fun to have a game night, too. Where multiple couples get together and ask the same questions. Do this in a round-table format, sitting in a circle. Have each player answer the question and then move onto the next.

New Relationship Questions to Ask

Try to be friends, then be lovers. That's the best way to start any type of relationship. It's a common mistake to try to jump into a relationship with every ounce of ourselves. Instead, try to learn who the person is. And why they qualify for being in a relationship with ourselves.
