This or that questions can come in handy in tons of situations.

When you start talking to someone new, you want to make sure you have the same likes and dislikes and similar hobbies.

Farther into the dating timeline, you will get to the harder questions that you may not even know your own answer to but you will find that it's worth talking about. 

Furthermore, if the person you are dating has children or teenagers you'd like to connect with, there are questions that can get them to warm up to you. 

You just have to start talking and the best way to get others to open up is through questions. And, above all else, if you can make them laugh in the process, then you are doing a perfect job at helping others become more comfortable around you. 

Remember, it's always better to have too many questions than to not have any because you want to be able to keep the conversation going so there aren't any awkward silences. It will help you all feel more comfortable as a whole.
