14 Questions You Should be Able to Ask Your SO

14 Questions You Should be Able to Ask Your Significant Other

Being in a relationship is very fun and exciting. But everyone has questions, and you should definitely be able to talk about anything with your significant other. No matter what those questions are, you should be able to have open and judgement-free conversations with your partner. Here are some important - and fun - questions that you should be asking.

What is one place you really want to travel to?

Find out where your partner wants to travel to, if they want to at all. Maybe you have some similar places in mind.

What foods do you absolutely hate?

This is always good to know. Also make sure they’re not allergic to any food. You don’t want to cook the wrong food for them!  

Do you want children? How many?

If you plan on starting a family of your own, you should definitely have this conversation with your partner.

Do you like animals/pets?

If you are a big pet lover, be sure to talk about it with your significant other.

Are you a heavy drinker/smoker?

This is an important question to know before you get into a relationship. If you are someone who hates when people smoke or drink heavily, this may be a problem for you. It’s best to be aware of any deal breakers you have as early as possible!

What kind of job do you plan to get?

This is an important question, especially if this is a new relationship and you are both young adults. You need to be sure you each are planning bright and supportive futures for yourselves, and how they may affect your relationship.

Where do you see yourself in X amount of years?

Like I mentioned, your future plans are important - even more so when you have a significant other by your side. Discuss where you want to be in 5-10 years from now.

How old were you when you lost your virginity?

Some people take much interest in this question and have their own feelings about it. Find out where you stand on this topic first.

How many people have you slept with?

Just like the last question, this may be very important for you to know. Or, you may not want to know the answer at all. It’s a personal question that, if it’s important to you, you should be able to talk about with your SO.

Do you have any STDs?

This is a highly important question that most people may be afraid of asking. But if you are in a serious, long-term relationship, this is a must-know. You can also schedule an appointment to get tested together to make both of you feel more comfortable. 

Are you registered to vote?

I believe this is an important question, especially for younger people. Your vote counts!

Do you come from a religious family, and are you close with your family?

These questions may or may not be relevant to you, depending on your own answer for it. If family is important to you, let your partner know, and discuss this topic. It’ll also give you a lot of insight into their upbringing, and how it’s shaped their background.

What is your biggest weakness?

Sometimes, knowing what the other person struggles with can be a relief for your partner, so that they won’t feel like they have to hide from you. You should be able to lean on your SO for support, and maybe your weaknesses are something you can help each other over come.

What are you biggest worries in relationships?

This is another question that every couple should discuss. Everyone has their own issues and worries when it comes to relationships. To make this conversation more relaxing, write down what bothers you, put them in a cup, and pick one at a time to talk about.
