3 Questions To Ask Each Zodiac Sign On A First Date

Have a hot date coming up and want to impress them? If you know their zodiac sign, you can use that to come up with questions tailored to their personality. Read on for three questions to ask each zodiac sign on a first date, going from carefree to deep and probing.


What’s a song you always get stuck in your head? Whether they hate it or love it, this innocent question will get them talking and will prompt you to share as well.

Were there ever any adventures you wish you could have done with a partner? Going solo isn’t a deterrent for most Aries, but this question will help you know if you can keep up with their brand of shenanigans.

What’s the biggest goal you’ve already achieved? Aries pride themselves on actually doing the things they set out to do, so they won’t be lacking for answers.


What’s your favorite thing to do on a cozy night in? Taurus’s are the homebodies of the zodiac.

What are some random fun facts about you? This is a way to keep it fun without going too deep–something that might turn a Taurus off.

Was there ever a time where your stubbornness blew up in your face? It’s a spicy question to ask if you don’t see a future or if the great chemistry can benefit from the sass. If they have an honest answer, that’s a big green flag.


Who is your favorite horror movie villain? Geminis often love horror movies, and this is a much better question than asking what their favorite horror movie in general is.

Where did you get that cool pin/button/patch? Geminis love to feel noticed, so showing that you’re paying attention to them will get you major points.

If you had to give a five-minute TED Talk about any subject right now without preparation, what would it be? Be prepared to watch your Gemini date’s eyes light up at the prospect of going on and on about their big interest.


What’s your pet’s name? Even if they haven’t mentioned a pet yet (though unlikely), the odds of them having one and treating them like their child are absurdly high.

What movie made you cry the most? Let’s face it, their list of cry movies could fill a whole book, but they’ll likely have the answer to this one at-the-ready.

That must have felt awful, huh? They won’t need much prompting from you in order to open up and talk about the deep stuff, so just asking thoughtful questions to show that you’ve been listening and care about what they’re saying will go a long way.


What’s your go-to karaoke song? Not only will they have an answer, but they might have multiple songs for different types of crowds.

Who’s your favorite person in your life? This is a great way to ask a question that steers them away from talking about themselves (which they’ll do in spades) while also learning about their interpersonal relationships.

What’s the most important thing you need to know about someone you want to date? Yes, this is a sneaky way of getting them to ask you questions, but of all the zodiacs most likely to answer yours and never ask you a single one, it’s a Leo.


What book should I read this weekend? You’re showing that you don’t mind a Virgo telling you what to do–and they’ll love you for it.

If you had to pick one skill to suddenly know, what would it be? They likely have already thought of this since they wish they had more hours in the day to do more things. And it’ll look great if their answer happens to be something you know how to do.

What’s the worst date you’ve been on? You can learn a lot about a person when they talk about a bad experience they had. This can make or break your compatibility.


What rom-com couple do you relate with the most? They’ll have an answer, and it’ll also help you understand what role they want you to have in their romantic life.

Are you going to that cool festival coming up? Of course, have a real event in mind when you ask. Libras like when people plan for future dates–especially if the event is an interesting, unique, or unknown one.

What’s the best gift you’ve ever received? It’s not a deep question on the surface, but your Libra date will likely have a super thoughtful answer.


What’s the most obscure band that you think I should listen to? They might not have very obscure answers, but it’ll be cute watching their passion regardless.

Have you ever lived in a haunted house or seen a ghost? Not only do Scorpios believe in this kind of thing, but it’s a great way to get them talking passionately if they’ve been a little quiet.

What’s a secret you’ve never told anyone? This is a spicy question for a Scorpio since they’re the most secretive sign. Only ask if they seem like they’re open to it or if you want to rile them up a little.


What’s the most beautiful place you’ve ever visited? Sagittarius is the most well-traveled sign of the bunch, so you’re about to get some great trip recommendations.

Oh man, what was that like? Sagittarius’s love when the conversation has a flow, so asking leading questions about what they’re talking about is a great way to show chemistry.

What makes you happy? It’s an open question that other signs would shy away from, but not Sagittarius.


If you could only ever eat at one restaurant for the rest of your life, what would it be? Capricorns are restaurant people, so be ready for some awesome suggestions. (And a hint of where to go on your next date.)

Do you have any advice for me? Come in with something real that’s goin on in your life. Capricorns give great advice and love to feel needed in this way.

Who are the special people in your life? Capricorns have a tight circle of trusted family and friends. Their opinion of you will matter almost as much as your date’s.


What are your go-to topics at pub trivia? Aquarius are the ones you want on your team. They likely have a topic or two that they’re experts at.

What kind of player are you in an escape room? Aquarius loves puzzles. But are they good at working in a team? Even if they aren’t super honest about it, you’ll probably be able to tell. And you can always set up a future date at an escape room to really determine compatibility.

Are you working on any passion projects? There’s always something taking up an Aquarius’s time, and this is a great way to break them out of the one-word answers.


Did you see that new movie? Pisces hate small talk, so skip the bland getting-to-know-you questions and try to find a common interest to get the ball rolling.

How did that make you feel? Yes, it’s a therapy question, but of all the signs to be receptive to it, it’s Pisces (and Cancer).

Do you believe everything happens for a reason, or no reason at all? Pisces don’t shy away from deep questions, so get philosophical early on and you’ll find yourselves talking for hours.
