zodiac sign Best Question To Ask On A Date, What to talk about with a guy

At a loss for words? We've got your back.

First dates are wild. You never really know how they’re going to go. Do you have any say in the success or the failure of the first date? All you know is you're just there trying to have a good time and trying to find the perfect person for you.

Maybe you don't even know the person you’re going on the date with. Maybe you met them at a loud and crowded bar, exchanged numbers, and agreed to go on a date in a quieter, calmer setting. Maybe it’s a blind date that your friend or your mom has set you up on because they’re worried you’ll be spending the rest of your life alone.

They promise you that they have found you your perfect match and you just need to give them the chance. Or maybe it's someone you met through an online dating website or a dating app, and your biggest concern is that you won't recognize them because they look nothing like they do in their profile photos.

Who knows how the date will begin and who knows how it will end? Maybe you tuned out of the date halfway through, trying to think of a creative and fool-proof excuse as to why you needed to leave early.

Maybe you really hit it off and have already planned your next date or agreed to continue it with drinks at a bar or back at someone’s house. Suddenly, you’re attracted to them and you're already imagining your wedding to them... Okay, hold your horses. Remember, this is only the first date. You have to be smart about your next move.

No matter how the date begins and ends, hopefully, you used the time on the date to your advantage to get to know this potential suitor the best you can. Let's be honest, you don't want to waste your time seeing someone who, in a few months or years, won't be as compatible with you as you thought.

Those are the times when you wish you could have avoided it all by asking one simple question back on your first date.

Maybe he doesn't believe in marriage when that is what you’re after. Or maybe he can't stand dogs when you already own two of them. Of course, there are some things you believe you can look beyond and work around, like different political views or your dream city to retire in. But other things are absolute deal breakers.


Is this too much pressure to put on the first date? Is the first date even that important? I believe you can only make one first impression, so yeah, the first date is super important. 

So it’s important that you get the most you can out of your first date with this man by asking the right questions based on his zodiac sign.

What are the best questions to ask him on a date? Well, with certain astrological signs, you should ask them what their biggest accomplishment has been, while you should question other signs on their ultimate goals in life. It's different for every sign. 

To get the answers you want to hear, you need to ask the right questions. And, here they are, the best questions to ask on the first date based on his horoscope.

Aries (March 21- April 19)

Aries works hard and wants people to notice his accomplishments. One of the best questions you can ask him is, "What is your biggest achievement in your life?".

Not only will this give him the chance to brag a bit and try to impress you, but you can get a feel as to what type of guy he is.

Did he spend some time in college with a program that built houses in underprivileged areas?  Or can he shotgun an obscene amount of alcohol in a limited amount of time? You’ll get a good idea of who he is by his answer.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is all about values, but he can value either people and priorities or possessions. So flat out ask him, "What do you value most in life?"

None of his answers are necessarily wrong (since everyone has their own priorities in life), but you’ll get an idea of where his values are in comparison to yours right off the bat. it will also be a good starting point of conversation if you find out you have similar views on life!

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini has two sides, a more serious on and a playful/relaxed one. The best way to know how he sees himself is to ask him which one he thinks he identifies with more.

This is a very telling question because it will be interesting to hear what he thinks of himself.

Ask him, "would you consider yourself more of an introvert? Or an extrovert?"

If he says he thinks of himself as more serious than playful, a follow-up question can be about what his last success at work was! If he sees himself as playful, ask him what he likes to do for fun!

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer is completely in touch with his emotions, so it's a good idea to ask him anything about family or friends because you’ll get a genuine answer about how he views them.

If you want to dig really deep you can ask him, "Who has inspired you the most?" or "Who do you look up to as a role model?"

He’ll most definitely have a swoon-worthy answer and you’ll get to know him a little more personally. Take note, though, as the person he names will lead to another set of questions about why he admires them so much.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Leo loves to show off and impress whoever he's with. There is no doubt he has been super involved, so a good question to ask him is what he is into - be that in his free time, at work, at school, anything.

He may tell you about an organization he is passionate about and works with, or maybe he’ll tell you a story about when he used to play sports. Either way, this question will make him smile because he has a chance to impress you.

Asking about himself means you’ve shown him that you’re interested in getting to know him on a personal level.

Try asking him more personal questions, like, "What do you like to do when you're away from your friends?" and "How do you like to spend your time alone?"

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo is a super hard worker so try not to talk about work! Of course you can ask him what he does, but since this is one of the rare times that he will not be focusing on work, talk about anything else - he's more than just a force to be reckoned with at work, you know!

Ask him things like, "What do you like to do in your free time?" and "What's your favorite way to relax?" You can definitely suggest something he should try out to relax that you can tag along with him on.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Libra seems to be at his best when he is in a relationship. Of course, you don't want to ask him what he loves most about his significant other (it could bring up bad memories), so ask him about himself in relationships.

Ask him, "Why are you looking for a relationship right now?" and "What does your ideal relationship or partner look like?"

These answers will be really telling, especially on a first date.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Ask Scorpio what his greatest experience has been. Scorpio is so brave so you may be in for a wild story, but there is also such a range of experiences that Scorpio has had, that you’ll never know what type of story you’re going to hear.

You can ask him a simple question, like "What is the best thing you've ever done?" 

Scorpio also loves sharing passion with people, so don't be afraid to talk about your own wild experiences. Even if it's a story about how you worked up the courage to go zip lining, but ended up screaming the whole time, he'll appreciate your honesty and ability to get out of your comfort zone - two traits he always tries to embody!

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is ready to do anything to achieve his goal, so ask him exactly what is goal in life is. 

Is it to travel as much as he can? Is it to be successful? Is it something you can see yourself tagging along for or joining in on?

Listen carefully to the types of goals he has, too. Ask him things like "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" and "What kind of personal goals do you have for yourself in the immediate future?"

This is also very telling because it'll tell you what kind of Sag he is; not all guys from this sign are the same. Whether he wants to focus on family and work or fun and friends, you'll be able to steer the conversation from there.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn has a lot going on in his life. Work, friends, family, social life - it can all be a lot. So ask him what the most important thing in his life is to get a better idea of who he is and what he values the most.

You can ask him straight up, "What do you value most in life?" and "Where do you see your life heading from here?"

Capricorn is the type of guy to be looking for a lasting relationship, so your conversation might get serious, fast. Don't let that freak you out, though, because he's only trying to open up about himself; he definitely doesn't expect to fall in love on the first date!

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius does not like to talk about, or even acknowledge, his emotions. So this is a good chance to make him face his fears and ask him about them indirectly.

He might not take the bait at first, but keeping strong eye contact and really listening to what he has to say will help him open up.

A great question to ask him is not only, "why did your last relationship end?", but also, "how have you grown since then?".

Hopefully this will get him thinking and talking about himself on a deeper level. If he isn't into the deep questions at first, keep trying! He's a tough egg to crack.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces spends a lot of time focusing on others and not as much time on himself. The way to go with him is by asking him anything personal. 

Avoid yes or no questions or ones that can be answered with a few simple words so he has to give you a story.

A good question to start with is to ask him, "what made you who you are today?". It will result in a deep answer and a strong connection between the two of you. Plus, he'll love being able to open up about the deepest parts of himself.
