Whether you’re new to speed dating or speed dating enthusiast, there’s one thing everyone knows: you have very little time to meet a potential suitor. So how can you really get to know someone in such a short amount of time? With the right questions, of course. Check out these 40 speed dating questions to ask a guy and you’ll have no
problem figuring out if he’s a hit or miss in a matter of minutes.
1. Why are you single?
This is a great question for obvious reasons. You can find out a lot about a man with this simple question. Was he the victim of a cheating girlfriend, or was he a controlling hothead the woman could no longer stand?
2. Have you ever been married?
With this question you’ll find out a little bit about his past, and find out whether he’s a serious relationship kind of guy or a player.
3. Do you have any kids?
If you’re not into the idea of kids, then this will be a deal breaker for you. On the other hand, this could reveal he’s a family man depending on his answer.
4. If no, do you want kids?
If he doesn’t have any kids, it’s important to find out whether or not he’s up for the challenge. This is another make it or break it for most woman, so knowing the answer to this question right away is imperative.
5. What is your job?
No woman wants to be with an unemployed man with no potential, so knowing his current employment status is important. Who knows, he could be the manager of your favorite restaurant or a high-end lawyer.
6. Do you go to school?
Don’t be too quick to judge if he’s unemployed without first asking this question. He might be unemployed, but he could be going to college for his degree.
7. How old are you?
So, we can obviously see why this might be an important question. If you’re 21 and he’s 45, you might want to wait till the next guy comes to your table before things get too serious.
8. How long have you lived in this city?
Is he a native of the land, or has he recently moved (maybe from some exotic state or country? How cool would that be!)?
9. What do you do for fun?
This is the perfect question to really see if the two of you are a match. You love art, he loves art- match! He loves fast cars, and you enjoy slow bike rides- maybe not so much of a match.
10. Do you have any pets?
If he’s got 13 dogs and you can’t stand dogs, then the two of you might not work out. However if you’re both avid pet lovers and he’s got a couple, this might be a match made in heaven.
11. Do you like to see new places?
Perhaps he’s the adventurous type that loves to travel, or maybe he’s a homebody who would rather stay inside and treat you to a homemade dinner and candlelit massages.
12. What’s something you want to know about me?
If you’re tired of asking question and he seems a little shy, ask this question to see what questions might be hiding in the depths of his mind.
13. What’s your favorite movie?
You can really find out about his personality here, if he loves comedies he might be a funny guy always cracking jokes while the guy who loves action movies might be a bit more dramatic and serious.
14. If you could have dinner with a famous person, who would it be?
Does he want to gawk at Pamela Anderson over dinner, or dive into the intelligent mind of Albert Einstein?
15. What’s one of your talents?
Hey, he could secretly dream of being a magician and has the ability to perform some wild tricks, or maybe he can walk on his hands. You’ll never know until you ask!
16. Where’s one place you want to visit?
Here you’ll find out just how adventurous he is. Does he wants to relax on the sandy shores of Jamaica, or speed down the highest mountains of Denver?
17. Do you like the city or the country?
With this question you’ll find out if he’s laid back or loves to be busy and energetic.
18. How would your friends describe you?

Really just a fun question to get to know the guy.

Everyone has one- see how wild, or subtle, his dream career is.
