113. What is the most ridiculous item you’ve ever purchased online?

Advertisements can trick anyone into believing that their product is what you need. Ask your crush if they ever fell for an advertisement and purchased something they did not need. Ask them if they ever purchased a particular item and received something entirely different.

114. Have you ever had an embarrassing moment on a messaging app?

Have you ever accidentally sent a funny picture to your boss or teacher? Have you ever posted the wrong message on the wrong group? Do not let your crush feel embarrassed alone. You can also share embarrassing social media moments to keep the conversation light and exciting.

115. What’s the funniest YouTube video you’ve ever seen?

YouTube is replete with funny videos. Your crush may likely have come across videos that crack them up each time they watch it. This question can keep them engaged when you feel your conversation is going nowhere.

116. What is the silliest thing you’ve ever done to impress someone?

Most people have done silly stuff to make someone notice them. Ask your crush if they have ever faked an accent to impress someone. Or you can ask them if they have ever been caught lying by their crush. Don’t judge them for their actions, but do laugh it off saying “everyone does that.”

117. What is the weirdest dream you’ve ever had?

Sometimes dreams can be really weird and absurd. Talking about dreams can be fun because it is not an extremely common topic. A unique topic can keep your crush interested in the conversation.

118. Have you ever had a funny misunderstanding because of language barriers?

If your crush travels abroad frequently or has studied a foreign language, you may ask them this question. And not just a foreign language, they can even misunderstand someone speaking the same language as them. Ask them about a funny encounter that can even cheer them up.

119. If you could have a personal theme song that played whenever you entered a room, what would it be?

Ask your crush to imagine themselves as a character in a show or a movie and tell them to pick a song they would like to play in the background to mark their entry. You can make this topic more interesting by asking your crush to suggest entry songs for your common friends.

120. Have you ever had an embarrassing moment while taking a selfie?

Have people ever stared at you while you posed for a selfie? Have you stumbled or dropped your phone while trying to click a selfie? Most of us do these things, so it’s likely your crush might have also done something silly while trying to get the perfect shot.

121. What’s the silliest song or jingle that you hate listening to, but it always gets stuck in your head?

122. Have you ever done something in public thinking no one’s looking but ended up attracting people’s attention?

Have you ever laughed out loud in public when you were alone? Have you ever broken into an impromptu dance in public and felt embarrassed? Ask them similar questions that can help maintain a funny conversation.

123. Have you ever had a funny encounter with an animal?

This is a fun question to share a light moment with your crush. If they have a negative response, you can change the question and ask them what they would do if they were stranded on a boat with an animal, just like ‘Life of Pi.’

Good Things To Talk About With Your Crush

There are some feel-good topics that make your crush feel better talking to you. If they have had a bad day, you can talk with them about these topics to improve their mood.

124. Which is your favorite tattoo?

If your crush has multiple tattoos, you can talk about them. They will love describing their experience of getting a tattoo, and if you don’t have any, you can ask them any number of questions about the pain and the healing process.

125. Which is your least favorite tattoo?

Raise this topic with your crush if you are sure they will not shut down. Many people have a least favorite tattoo. It may be something that reminds them of someone else, a tattoo that they got during an event they were blind drunk, or something that they got done from a friend on an experimental basis and isn’t happy with how it turned out.

126. What is your unrealistic dream job?

Talk to your crush about their dream job — it could be as silly as sleeping all day. If they are a reader, they might want a job that pays for reading books. If they are travelers, they might be looking for a job that allows them to travel free of cost. Share more and more unrealistic dream jobs and laugh your hearts out.

127. Which fandom do you follow?

It might get pretty intense, especially if you both do not follow similar fandoms. Keep the conversation light and discuss what they like about a particular fandom and tell them about yours. But on the flip side, if your fandoms match, it is like finding a long-lost twin.

128. What is your guilty pleasure?

Is watching reruns on Friends your crush’s guilty pleasure? Is eating a whole bar of chocolate your guilty pleasure? Admit these to each other and feel the distance getting close between you two.

129. What is the topic you know about most?

For all you know, your crush might be a space nerd. But how will you know if you won’t ask? It is a feel-good topic that will leave your crush feeling happy because someone voluntarily asked about their favorite topics and then listened to them.

130. What puts you off on a date?

While the common ones are always valid (often looking at the phone, talking rudely to waitstaff), some things are specific to different people. For example, some people cannot bear it if their date is wearing a loud perfume or doesn’t pick them up from home.

Discussing this in the crush stage will make sure you don’t go ahead with any misconceptions.

131. How did you feel about high school?

Did you enjoy high school and are still in touch with your friends? Or couldn’t you wait to get out of there and good riddance? Everyone has a different experience at school. Talk to your crush about their experiences, and you can get a new perspective on school life, even if you were in the same school.

132. How do you feel about your parents’ relationship?

If you feel your crush is comfortable talking about their family, you can ask them this question. You can ask what they have learned from their parents’ marriage. If they are separated, you can ask how they handled the separation.

133. What is your parent’s love story?

Sharing a parents’ love story can be a unique experience because not many people ask such a question. If your crush seems happy to share their story with you, you can ask them questions to keep the conversation going.

134.How important is family to you?

If you are considering your crush for a serious and long-lasting relationship, you may ask them this question. It will give you an idea about how they perceive relationships and if they can be interested in having a family.

135. If you could be someone else for a day, who would it be?

It can be someone popular or someone who has influenced many lives with their good work. Ask your crush who they would like to be and why. It will give you a good insight into your crush‘s life.

136. What is on your bucket list?

If your crush has admitted having a bucket list, ask them to share as many details as they feel comfortable. If your crush doesn’t have a bucket list, try making one each with them —a sort of buddy project. As you add items to your bucket list, you will know unknown aspects of your crush’s character.

137. What has been the worst year of your life until now?

This topic calls for some serious discussion, so you need to be ready to devote the time. After this discussion, you are sure to be closer to your crush.

138. What is one thing you’re looking forward to in the near future?

Are you looking forward to getting married? Are you excited to become a parent someday? What does your crush want for their future self? This question can make them think hard and even get them excited.

139. What is one thing you love about yourself or your life right now?

If your crush does not have an answer to this, you can tell them what you like most about them. Let them blush as you praise their positive attributes. This can even pave the way for more topics to talk about.

140. Tell me about the last time you did something good for a stranger.

If your crush has an answer to this question, they will most likely be selfless. You can praise them for being kind to others. However, do not go overboard with the praise, as it may not look genuine or heartfelt.

141. What’s a small gesture of kindness that someone did for you and it helped you tremendously?

If a person does not forget acts of kindness, it means they are grateful for the positive things in life. Recalling an act of kindness can lift your crush’s spirit and help them feel happy by recalling some good memories.

142. What’s something you’ve always wanted to learn or explore but have not got the chance?

Most of us make plans about something and often put it off for the future. Your crush, too, might have made plans about learning a skill or pursuing a hobby but may not have worked on it. If you can help them with this, you can earn some brownie points.

143. Who is your dream date?

Ask your crush about their dream date, and if they are comfortable, you can even tease them. You may also share your dream date so you’ll tease each other about it.

144. What is the best gift you have ever received?

Tell your crush the gift can be from anyone. Also, ask them what is so special about the gift that they like so much. This will help you understand the kind of things that matter most to your crush.

146. If you could meet anyone from history, who would it be and why?

Ask this question to know the kind of personality your crush admires. Suppose they cannot think of a name, you can give them options. For instance, you can ask them ‘What would you say to Albert Einstein if you ever met him?’ Their spontaneous answers can lead to a funny conversation.

147. If you could learn any new language instantly, which one would you choose?

Also ask them the reason behind their choice. Whatever is their choice, it can lead to more topics to talk about. You can discuss about the region the language belongs to and even ask them if they would like to visit that place.

148. If you were a vegetable, which one would you be, and why?

The point behind this question is to make your crush feel light and distract them from anything that is bothering them. Also, their response can tell you a lot about their sense of humor.

149. Which is the first movie you saw in a theater?

This can bring some happy memories back to your crush’s mind. You can share your own theater experience to have a happy conversation.

150. What’s something that excites you the most?
