Dating is complicated, but getting to know each other better should be the goal. Ask these deep relationship questions to get closer.
Dating is fun and exciting. Did he mean to touch your leg? Did she just joke about staying over at your place or was she serious? These things are what makes dating so enjoyable, in the beginning, at least. As your relationship grows, it is important not to get too comfortable with assumptions you’ve made, but delve into deep relationship questions to make sure both of you know each other, and understand each other well.
Couples, no matter how long they’ve been together can and should always continue getting to know one another. This is how you grow a deeper bond and know that you’re with the right person. These deep relationship questions can help you connect on a more intense level, improve your intimacy, or even help you plan out your future together.

All of these questions bond you and your partner in a new way and on a new level. I wouldn’t recommend simply sitting down and asking these questions in a list. Rather, pick the ones you want the answers to and which you are also prepared to answer.
Be open and release all judgment. These questions are a path for you to get to know each other better and strengthen your connection, not an excuse to judge or mock one another.
Use these deep relationship questions as a guide and really dig deeper together. You’ll be glad you did. Start with a couple of them, and you’ll realize that they can reveal so much so soon!
