online speed dating

You’re at the speed dating event, you take a seat. On the other end of the table is a potential match. There are 8 minutes on the clock and counting. What do you say? What do you ask?? Here is our pick of some of the best speed date questions and topics to make use of your 8 minutes.

  • What do you do for work?
    • A great way to find out what your date is passionate about! 
  • Are you a good cook?
    • I mean who doesn’t love food! This also opens the floor to their favorite foods and maybe even a second date because now you have to try their food. 
  • If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
    • This is a great way to see if they’re more of a city or nature person and where they prefer to live in their day to day life.
  • What’s on your bucket list?
    • This opens the floor up to fun conversations and also gives you an idea of how compatible you may be! Maybe they’re adventurous like you or maybe they don’t like traveling but instead focus their time on fulfilling their career goals.
  • What are your hobbies or what’s one hobby you would love to start?
    • This is a great opportunity to learn what they love to spend their time on in their free time. If they answer with they don’t have any, or they don’t have time for any hobbies; they also may not have time for a relationship.
  • Favorite music genres?
    • Humans are beautifully complex creatures and depending on our moods we are likely to bounce more between genres than specific artists or bands.
  • Favorite TV shows, movies or books?
    • A classic topic and something that is easy to chat about, and hey you might even get some good Netflix recommendations! 
  • What’s the worst date you’ve ever been on?
    • Everyone has a story of their worst date and this is the perfect question to break the tension and it usually results in lots of laughs!
