You Choose: What Question Do You See Yourself Asking?

Imagine a situation where you could only ask a single question before making the life-altering choice of being with a new partner or not. Thank goodness, we don’t have to make this a choice reality because choosing a significant other is a huge decision that can shape our lives in unlimited ways. What would you ask?

Loving Yourself

One Redditor shared, “Serious question; “What do you love about yourself.” I think this is a massively important question to ask because it tells a lot about somebody.”

The Perfect Date

A second Redditor said, “What is your idea of the perfect realistic date?” Seems to me like you could tell a lot from a truthful answer to that. Decisive, indecisive, along for the ride or controlling, easy going or high maintenance.”

A user shared, “Seems like an easy question but reveals a lot about what someone wants out of life; “When will you know that you have “won” at life?”

A Redditor commented, “The one question I ask every girl I have ever gone out with has been whether or not they would climb a tree with me at any given time. If somebody doesn’t want to climb a tree with me, I don’t really want to be dating them. I guess that sounds weird, but it really gauges a persons personality.”

Motherly Love

A user stated, “I’d ask this as a woman to a man: What is your relationship with your mother like, and why?” Their answer would be very revealing and says alot about a man.”

Children Or Not

A top-liked comment said, “Do you want children? Because I really don’t and I will not change my mind.” It may seem like a loaded question but for me it says a lot about what I want my future to look like when I’m looking for a perspective long-term relationship.”

Deadline: Midnight

One user shared, “I would ask, if you were to die at 12:00 tonight, how would you spend the next X hours of your life? That would tell you everything that is important to them right now, and strip away any pretenses of money, image, or fame that they might have possessed and gets at the real core of who they are.”

Purpose Of Life

A Redditor asked, “What is the purpose of life? It’s crazy to rationally assume that any single question would enable you to pick a decent partner, but if was limited to one question, this one would cut to the chase for me.”

Embarrassing Moments

This user shared, “What was your most recent embarrassing moment” Along those lines. If he/she blushed it meant genuine response.”

Which Side

A Redditor stated, “Over or under in regards to toilet paper… You know which one is right.”

See Your Future

A user shared, “Hypothetically it’s like 60 years in the future, and you’re (80,90 etc) sitting on your front porch swing reflecting on your life; What are the highlights of your life?”

Walk Out Song

A top liked comment said, “You’re a professional wrestler/fighter/beer league softball player, what is your walkout song and why?”

Parental Relationship

This Redditor commented, “How’s your relationship with your parents?” – if she treats her parents well and has a good relationship with them, chances are she will treat you similarly.”

Existential Dilema

A user said, “Do you believe that everyone is entitled to do whatever they want, or believe whatever they want, so long as it isn’t harmful to others?”

Free Time

A Redditor commented, “What do you do with most of your free time? It’s both a good topic starter and you can tell what they put emphasis on in their lives beyond school/work, it can even tell you if someone is a workaholic.”

5 Best Albums

One Redditor shared, “If you could be present for any 5 recordings any 5 albums, which ones would they be? Scopes out the kind of music the guy likes which tells me a lot about their personality (most of the time.)”

This user stated, “What do you want to accomplish with your life?” or something along this line. I think for two people to be compatible they really need to have the same goals and priorities. I’m an ambitious person who want to accomplish something in my field of work, and I know darn well that I won’t be compatible with someone who only wants to lay around and eat Cheetos.”

The Worst

A user asked, “What is the worst thing that’s ever happened to you? What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done? Not sure which one of those, but definitely one of them. The first one helps to gauge how much emotional baggage there may be, and the second one shows whether they might give you a new answer to the first question.”

A Redditor said, “I always try to ask “what are you passionate about?” when I see it fitting. This, if anything, answer a lot about their compatibility with me and also their personality.”

3 Things

Finally a Redditor shared, “Tell me 3 things you would do right now if you had all the money in the world. Best question. You get inside there brain; are they adventurous, greedy, needy, boring, ect.”
