Moreover, we have prepared answers on these date question, so you can look in what form it could be answered or take some ideas for your own answers.
We try to avoid typical questions like “Where are you from?” or “Where do you work?”. You don’t need help with such a question. But we have some special online dating questions, that can reveal the essence of person or determine is it your soulmate.
1. Why did you decide to use an online dating site?
This is very important question. You need to know why this person here and what aims she or he has, is it just entertainment or serious searching of a long-term relationship. Often these reasons connect with happenings from past. In opposite, you also can share your reasons and check if you have the same.
“… Oh yes. Sometimes I think why I’m here, why I can’t find girl in real life, but then I begin to recall all my misfortunes in past … It’s really hard to forget, I still feel all that pain. I still don’t ready for a new relationship fully, but I need someone how can treat me and be my close friend. Maybe exactly you can to bring me feeling love …“
2. What places did you visit and what do you want to visit?
It can seem that it’s a typical question, but he can show really big like if the person likes or dislike travelling if she or he wants to explore something new and is willing for new adventures. If you don’t lead a sedentary life I think it’s quite important to you.
“… I have visited 5 countries: France, Germany, Hungary, Austria, Italy. But I don’t consider that if I was in Paris I can say that I was in France. Also, I travel a lot through my county, especial in mountains. I’m fond of exploring our world and with every trip, I understand how big he is and how much I haven’t seen yet. I want to go to Iceland very much…”
3. Do you have some achievements that you can share with me?
After that question, you can understand not only where this person has significant gains, but also if this person is purposeful and hardworking. Moreover, maybe you have some similar achievements, so you will have what to tell about.
“…Two years ago I finished French course and got a certificate. Also recently I got Bachelor degree and now I’m going to get Master degree. Last summer I was a volunteer at a local summer school where I was helping to teach math to children of 8th form. I try to lead an active social life, it brings a lot of advantages…”
4. Are you a romantic? Can you describe your perfect date?
It’s quite interesting question. Except that you can know is the person a romantic or a pragmatist, you can also remember how a person imagines real date and will make this in your first meeting in real life.
“…I imagine my date maybe in a park or in a wood and there is a river or lavender field nearby. We have a beautiful picnic with cheese, baguette, fruit and wine. Later we can see a sunset and take photos on polaroid…”
5. What are your favorite books, songs, movies?
This question doesn’t belong to a type of questions about life stance and sense of life. It’s more question for your interests and these topics always cause extensive discussion. Also, you can recommend what to read/listen/watch each other.
“…Frankly, I like to read more than to watch movies, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t watch them. My favorite writer is Ray Bradbury and “Wine Dandelion” is my favorite book. Also recently I’ve read Stephen King “The Shining”. My favorite movie is “Léon: The Professional”. As for my music tastes, I can listen to an absolutely different kind of music if it’s a good song for me no matter how it calls. Also, this surprise most of my friend, I like to listen to classical music…”
6. Do you like animals and what is your favorite?
It’s very cute question. He can show if person is kind and if he or she thinks about others.
“…I love animals, but I will never have a pet. I think that all animals have to live in nature and we can’t disturb them, but unfortunately, we do. I try to help local kennel and I’m against of circus and zoos. My favorite animal is a giraffe. I’m always impressed when see it…”
7. What is your favorite food?
It isn’t even a question, it’s big a topic! You can not only write a list of your favorite dishes but also to share some recipes or tell some story where did you teste the most delicious food in your life or how did you cook your last pie with your friends.
“…To say the truth I like almost all dishes that I have ever tries. Easier to say what I don’t like. I don’t like liver, blue cheese and cancers. It’s what remember now, maybe something more. I like to cook at my kitchen very much, especially baking and desserts. Last time I cooked cinnabons, all my friend were exciting…”
8. What dreams do you have?
As for me, this question doesn’t mean some purchases or wealth like to buy new slippers. It’s about really your dreams, targets, that you want to gain and you need to work hard for this. This question will show if a person is a dreamer and if he or she knows real a sense of life.
“…I want to move to another country. I want to go very much to Holland or England. But for this, I need much more money than I have now. Also, I want to go to the sea with my mum. I know she wants it very much and I want to do such a present on her birthday…”
9. Do you have some guilty pleasures?
I think everyone has such favorite things despite feeling that it isn’t generally held in high regard. It can be movies, TV programs, some things that you like to do. But you like this and you don’t care about others.
“…Oh, haha, of course, I have such pleasures. I like dancing when I’m having a shower. I literally can dance when wash my head. Also when I blow-drying I imagine like I’m a big superstar and blow dryer is my microphone. I still love serials “H20 Just Add Water” and watch “Twilight” over and over every year…”
10. Can you describe your perfect day that you remember?
You can see what person values and what exactly he or she appreciates. It can be spending time with relatives, enjoyment of beautiful nature or something else. All these features can say more about a person’s nature.
“…I had such a day last time when it was a birthday of my best friend. We went to the centre of our city and to a cafe with burgers. There we laughed, make crazy photos and just share our plans with each other. Then we went to the park and suddenly it began to rain. So we stood under the tree and enjoy summer rain…”
11. How do you usually spend your weekend?
This question also will show if you have something common interest and features or no. I don’t say that you have to have all common thing, but in general, you can be both active or passive. And it’s quite interesting to compare yourself with others.
“…Usually, I have 2 days on my rest and I try to divide them into 2 parts. On Saturday I help my parents, clean my flat, go shopping and on Sunday I spend time with my friends. Also, I try to be more active: I run, ride a bike or walk through the park… ”
- What qualities do you appreciate in other people?
I think it’s a self-explanatory question that doesn’t need any explanation. In addition, I can say that your partner will be looking for these qualities in you and if he won’t find maybe you will become not interesting to him or her. But first, you need to think if you appreciate the same qualities and if it doesn’t contravene your principles.
“…I hate an egoist and a smart alec. I always seek inner beauty. If person beautiful inside, she also beautiful outside. Also, I always keep in mind this rule: a man is known by the company he keeps…”
13. Are you an active person?
This question will give you an image of a person’s lifestyle, if a person leads an active way of life if cares about her own health.
“…I think I’m a quite active person. When the weather is good I usually try to run, have a big bike trip, walking in parks. When the weather is colder I go to my dance club or to the swimming pool…”
14. Can you describe your best friends?
This question also connects with the rule “A man is known by the company he keeps”. So you can use this rule in practice
“…Honestly to say I have only one best friend. Moreover, I don’t like to stick labels on people like best friend, just friend, good friend and others. I appreciate in my friend that I can always rely on her, tell her my secrets, my dream and feeling. And what is more important I can be myself with her…”
15. Can you talk about something for hours? What are your hobbies?
It’s always interesting to know about hobbies of another person, to know what she is interested about and about what she really can talk for hours.
“…I think I could be films, books and trips. I like reading and watching films and I want to read all books and watch all movies, but I’m afraid that isn’t enough one life for this. And also I’m fond of trips, I can talk about my trip stories and listen to others trip stories literally for hours…”
16. What is the last problem that really disturbs you?
You can know about what person disturbs and if she disturbs about something in her life in general, accept of her own.
“…It was recently, I had my breakfast and switched on the TV. Here I saw the report about paper cups. It appears that almost all such paper cups have plastic cover inside (otherwise your cup would be wet just as you get your coffee) and due to that, it needs 20 years in order to recycle paper cup. Some people try to gather these cups in order to make new things from them like copybooks, but of course, it’s not enough. Since that morning I have gone to coffee house with my cup…”
17. What is your religion?
For some people it’s a very important question: they can go out with a person if only she has the same faith. For others, they just want to know that their partners haven’t any abjection about other faith. So everyone can find in this question exactly what he wants.
“…I’m a Catholic and I have nothing against other faiths. And I hate all these religious wars. As for me, it’s stupid and cruel…”

Wishlist is a list of small dreams (like a new red dress, book, new paints. etc.), some cute things that make us happier. It’s always interesting about what another person dreams. And moreover maybe exactly you can realize her one small dream.
“…Yes, I have such a small list. I want a new phone case, because mine is very old, and a T-shirt with words ”Avocado Please” because avocado is mt everything. That’s all that I can recall now…”
- Do you like theatres and concerts? What was your last one?
It’s always important to know the cultural rate of person. Also, you can discuss your favorite performances or recommend something new to each other.
“…I like theatres and concerts very much, but theatres more. When I’m in a theatre I always think about how people can create such incredible performance and as for me, there aren’t bad performances in the theatre. The last one was “Romeo and Juliet” at the Globe Theater, I saw this 3 times!…”

It can be absolutely everything.
