IMHO, there’s nothing more exhilarating than having a crush. You meet someone who could be ~the one~ and your world is suddenly filled with hearts, rainbows, and soulmate potential. Liking someone new and wanting to know everything about them becomes your new favorite thing, and you find yourself constantly thinking up a bunch of different questions to ask your crush. Très romantique, right?

Granted, not all crushes advance to the talking phase, but others can blossom beautifully—especially if you know the right questions to ask. That’s why the ‘getting to know you’ phase is so crucial; it’s your chance to learn more and have as many open and honest conversations as possible.

Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, we’ve got you. We’ve put together this master list of questions to ask your crush—so you can get to know each other better, determine your compatibility, and have fun doing it. You don’t need to have everything in common—in fact, differences are good! But the more you know about someone, the easier it is to decide if you want to pursue something more serious together. The key is to pick questions that are deep enough to get to know the latest object of your affections and establish a connection without coming off like you’re conducting an actual interrogation, explains relationship coach Carmel Jones.

Obviously, only you can decide what makes the most sense to ask and when. But as long as you’re both engaged in the conversation, you’re on the right track. “I think if you go in with an open mind, you’re friendly and keep things simple, and you listen, that’s really important,” explains conversation expert Debra Roberts, LCSW, president of The Relationship Protocol.

Whether it’s a flirty text convo or a romantic date where you get deep, we’ve got the best questions to ask your crush that’ll amp up the intimacy and help you gauge your long-term potential. Let’s bookmark this list and find the love of your life, shall we?
