What Is Your Earliest Memory?: Questions To Ask Your Significant Other

Updated on March 25, 2017

As a teenager I loved perusing the pages of “The Book of Questions” and finding questions to ask my cousin Liz. In the years since, I’ve asked all sorts of questions of my own devising, and in the process developed a proficiency for learning how to draw people out of their shell. Recently I was thinking about the things I still want to know about my significant other. This thought inspired me to create an article with questions geared towards those in romantic relationships. Many of these questions can, thankfully, also be asked of your family, friends, and coworkers. This list is for anyone in a romantic relationship; it doesn’t matter if you’ve been with your significant other for a month or fifteen years. While it’s possible you’ve already discussed these topics because you have been together such a long time, hopefully the questions will spur you on to ask related questions.

I’m admittedly biased in favor of long, animated conversations with my significant other. I realize that not everyone is as interested in such things, yet, for those who are, I hope these questions inspire you to seek greater intimacy with the person you love.
