If you've never felt tongue-tied while talking to a crush, then you're either lying or you're much cooler than the average person. When you hit a lull in conversation, it's natural to freak out, but asking your crush a thought-provoking question can help keep the ball rolling. And while you can always keep things casual with a question about your crush's interests, hobbies, and aspirations, it never hurts to add some LOL-worthy Qs to the convo. There are plenty of
playful questions to ask your crush on a date or over text, and the answers will likely reveal more about that person than you'd expect.
Sometimes it's fun to ask
questions that delve into your crush's past and reveal deets about their history. You can also try questions that test their personal opinions (though it's probs best to stick to non-contentious issues). And of course, it's always illuminating to ask about someone's pop culture preferences. Whether you're looking for questions that get a little flirty or questions that spark interesting discussions, these random inquiries are sure to inspire hours of convo. The best part: These questions all work just as well in person, over text, on dating apps, or through DMs. Westend61/Westend61/Getty Images What's your grossest hidden talent?
