Whether you and your partner have been together for five months or five years, there's almost always something new to learn about who they are as a person. Even if you think you know them better than anyone else, part of keeping a relationship exciting is continuously getting to know each other. If you're looking to get extra intimate during date-night or for a thought-provoking way to pass the time, "this or that" questions to ask your partner are going to come in handy.

Some of the following questions may seem simple, but the answers can help you learn a ton about your partner. You can glean how similar your tastes are, and learn about how their preferences came to be. You can ask about the experiences and memories that were instrumental to shaping their tastes, and how they've evolved in adulthood. All these little details come together to make up the fabric of who your partner is, and when you've got free time on your hands to just talk and get to know each other, you might as well make the most of it.
