Knowing what to ask your crush to impress them and make them like you can be a nerve-wracking task. Don’t worry, that’s why I’ve compiled this list of the best questions to ask your crush (at all levels), whether you want to break the ice or take things to the next level.
My constant remedy to dealing with any kind of relationship (professional, personal, intimate, etc.) is to remember we’re all different and respond well to different topics… and therefore, will respond better to certain questions.
Hence why I came up with this list and categorized the questions into ones that will generally be OK to use in the beginning. And then I’ll give you racier questions for when you know him better.
In this article you will find (click ahead if you want to skip right to the questions):
Tips & Tricks
When in doubt, start small. Don’t just dive into questions you don’t feel comfortable asking right away. If you do not know him very well and aren’t sure about what to ask and whether he is interested in you, take it slow and let things build naturally.
Don’t try to force things if he’s not reciprocating the same level of interest.
Imagine how you would feel and have probably felt in the past if a guy came onto you in an extremely forward fashion, trying to pursue you without even knowing whether you’re interested. What does it feel like? Take this and apply it when and if you are in a situation where you don’t necessarily know how he feels.
Having a Crush is Fun
If you’ve got a crush, a relationship is definitely at play, or at least I’d assume the fantasy of one. You know him and see him, and admire him for what and maybe who he is. Sometimes I miss the feeling of having a crush and the excitement and energy you feel when just getting to know someone you are really interested in. So I’ll consider anyone reading this lucky. Having a crush is a fun exciting thing with a list of any possibilities.
You have a crush, but you might be wondering, “How would I get someone interested in me who has no idea how I feel without being awkward and embarrassing myself? How to I get the person I like to like me back? How would I get that “apple of my eye” to come to me when they want to talk, or even better, when they need to talk?!”
Determine What “Kind” of Crush You Have
In other words, are you a viewer of your crush from afar? Or is this a friend that you’re gaining feelings for?
The kind of questions I recommend asking are dependent on on your relationship to your crush. Certain questions are obviously OK for someone you know that would be inappropriate to ask someone you’re trying to get to know.
It might not seem super easy, but is a lot easier than you’d ever think. Hopefully, I can give some insightful, yet subtle questions to pique his interest. And by subtle, I mean coming off as totally candid.
The reason I say “subtle” is because if you don’t know how he feels about you yet, it’s best to start small and build up from there.
You want to know he likes you as well before you take that next step. These questions can help you get a feel of his reciprocation, as well as spark some conversation to at least get to know each other better.

There you go! Now you have a list of the types of questions you can ask your crush. Whether you’re starting to get to know him or heading in a direction toward a deeper connection, one key takeaway is to always be present and listen to him.
Listening Is the Heart of Having a Connected Conversation
Part of listening means you are not stuck in your own thoughts wondering what he thinks of you or trying to impress. In fact, trying to impress will sabotage your interactions and make it impossible to truly listen.
Ironically, when you stop trying to impress and realize that the only thing that matters is being engaged in the present moment and seeing how you get along as people… you free yourself of the most sabotaging conversation killing energy.
Once you drop the mindset of trying to impress, what can you do to be fully present in a conversation with your crush?
Observation is Key
One rule to always keep in mind is to always have a good gauge of the “vibe” of the situation, unique personality as well as situational and environmental factors. In other words, take the context of the situation into consideration. If you’re in a club, you can act and speak differently than a church ceremony.
Have a good idea of how he’s feeling before you ask any questions, so you can ask the questions that work best at that time.
You can never know how someone’s feeling, or what happened to them that day or in the past. People can be all over the spectrum. Men (just like women) can be all smiles on payday, or sullen and depressed after losing a pet.
You never know- so please always listen to what you hear and feel. Listening is both crucial to what’s being said verbally, and also to nonverbal, visual cues. Listening requires your ears and eyes, especially while conversing.
Listening is about both hearing what he is saying and observing him and his body language, facial expressions, etc.
Nonverbal Cues Will Make All The Difference
Nonverbal cues can be the most important and are usually stating the true feeling of the person. A good example could be, “How was work today?” and with a sunken face he replies “Good,” in a monotone drone. His day wasn’t good, he hates it! In this example, you could gauge the situation and ask why he doesn’t like work etc.
Always try to understand the person you’re interested in objectively.
Guys can obviously be shy too, and sometimes coming on strong can be a deal breaker! Depending on the guy! So it is vital to listen to those verbal, and non verbal cues.
The main thing is to go with what feels right and comfortable for you. If you’re a charismatic, fun girl, be that! Ask the questions in which you see best fit your personality.
Think of it like this: When you’re asking questions that fit your personality, you’re playing to your own strengths. And if you’re playing to your strengths, then all of your conversations will be within familiar territory for you, which means they will be smooth, effortless and comfortable for you. Your comfort is contagious – it will help put him at ease and help make him more comfortable to open up to you.
Relationships are beautiful things that supersede sex. Through relationships, we can understand all people. We learn to not only accept faults but love them. So I want success for everyone in their love life!!! Trust me!
And finally… have fun!!! If you come from a place of fun and happiness, you will bring this energy into your interactions with your crush. And when you come from a place of fun, he will want to spend time with you! Don’t put pressure on the situation. Simply let things happen naturally and enjoy it! Trust me, nothing is more attractive to a man than a happy woman.

this is the only list i need to impress my crush. i will make sure to not sound like as if i am interrogating him once i had the chance to ask him these questions.
simple questions can go a long way as long as you know how and when to ask them. if you’re talking to your crush, you can start with things that are of his interest like hobbies, sports, music, etc. once you both are comfortable, you can start asking and talking about the more serious or personal stuff. remember not to rush things so he doesn’t feel awkward answering them.
seeing a crush gives that rush to the body and being with him and actually talking to him makes one so nervous. these questions are the perfect things to ask and talk about for you both to get comfortable with each other.
safe and subtle questions should warm you all up. i would use these if i had met my crush and these will be helpful. i’ll keep these in mind for the future.
definitely start small when asking questions to your crush. chances are, you both aren’t too familiar with each other yet so it’s not proper to ask very personal questions unless he takes the lead and you’re both comfortable.

you do not only ask questions, you also observe esp the nonverbal cues. this way, you would know if he’s comfortable with the flow of your conversation.
i love the “Flirty, fun, and racy questions” but of course I will only ask these when we’re both comfortable with each other. I don’t want him thinking about me just as a flirt.

start asking questions about things you really know. that way, you can start a great conversation about something you both are interested in.
