A game of 20 questions with your crush might seem old fashioned, but who hasn't been wooed this way at the back of a high school bus? This time-honored flirting tradition of having loads of questions to ask your crush is one of our generation's best, and that goes for dating in your 20s, too. What better way is there to get to know somebody than a game that pretty much gives you complete access to somebody's inner workings? Opening up and being vulnerable with one another is an amazing way to build an emotional bond. If you're playing 20 questions with your crush, try to receive their answers with as little judgment as possible. It'll make them all the more willing to open up to you — and opening up is totally hot.
And if they scoff at any of your questions, then you'll know your crush just isn't as emotionally available as you are. Maybe you can teach them how to be a little bit more vulnerable with the person they're dating. And if they need a little push, answer the question yourself as well! Sometimes, answering the questions you ask for yourself can lead to just as entertaining a conversation as asking them to tell you all their little quirks.
