Striking up a conversation with your crush via text is a great way to see if you can get into a rhythm of regular communication. Unfortunately, making contact is only the first step in developing some rapport. And in the beginning, keeping a convo going with someone you're still getting to know can be tricky. Like, really tricky. (There’s nothing worse than getting a single emoji reply and having no idea where to take a conversation from there, you know?) Luckily, there are plenty of fun strategies you can deploy to keep a chat from fizzling, including a round (or two, or three) of “would you rather” questions.
From simple to silly, flirty to sexy, there’s no shortage of leading “would you rather” questions for your crush to answer. Better yet, each answer is sure to give you a fuller picture of who they are, what they like, and — perhaps most importantly — how they feel about mythical creatures. Whether you’re looking to dig deep and learn more about their values or keep things light (and maybe even a little raunchy), we’ve rounded up 25 juicy "would you rather" questions to ask your crush via text if you want to get to know them better. Go on, send that double text.
