  • 100 funny first date questions – no more awkward dates!

First dates can be awkward, especially this day in age where people usually meet each other from an online site like Tinder or Bumble.

One of the best ways to alleviate the awkwardness is to ask each other funny questions and get a sense of each other’s humor and personality.

In addition to asking funny first date questions you can ask these myriad of different genre questions here. The top 100 funny first date questions are as follows….

Table of Contents

1. What was your first nickname?

This is a great question that requires more than a “yes” or “no” answer. Chances are it will be something goofy and silly that will reveal a bit about their childhood too and if they were a cranky or happy baby, whether they were an early talker, had a lisp, etc. Nicknames are always goofy.

2. What is the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you?

Embarrassing stories are always the funniest later on, once you’re over them of course. You can discover what your date is ashamed of and watch them blush and laugh. You’ll get a deeper understanding of their inner values in a humorous way.

3. What’s the worst joke you’ve ever heard?

Ever hear something so unfunny that you laugh? Like seeing something so ugly it’s cute? You can laugh over the stupidity of someone else’s joke.

4. What are some of the best pranks you pulled as a kid and an adult?

Delve into each other’s mind, see how their mind works with little tricks and manipulation. Pranks are fun if they’re harmless like ding dong ditch.

5. Have you ever drunk texted someone and how did it go?

Once again, embarrassing stories are always the funniest. But remember, it’s your first date so tell them about drunk texting a parent or grandparent, not your ex.

6. Who’s your favorite comedian?

Maybe you have the same favorite and can re-live the show with laughter or maybe you tell some of your favorite jokes and expose them to a new favorite comedian too. It’s a win win.

7. Show me your best accent?

Either they’ll do one super well that you’ll laugh because it’s spot on or they will be horrible and you’ll crack up. Both ways this one always ends in laughter.

8. What’s your guilty pleasure tv show?

Are they into reality tv, teen drama, etc. It’s a little secret that you both can tease each other about.

9. If you were a stripper what would be your stripper name?

When in doubt, this topic always makes people giggle. Keep it sexual and the attraction will bloom on the first date.

10. What is one of your freakiest fetishes?

Do they have a foot fetish or any type of fetish. It’s good to get it out there early on and keep it light as you get more comfortable in the relationship you’ll thank yourself for asking this early on.

11. Do you believe in ghosts?

Make some funny faces through your napkin and poke holes. That’s the truest test.

13. Do you think animals can understand you?

Do they talk to your animals in a telepathic sense? Or do they talk back? Experience the level of crazy you’re dealing with. Are they a cat or a song person… this can lead into more stories about childhood pets and the like.

14. Why are you single?

Everyone is asked that… what’s that crazy thing you do people can’t stand, or those absurdly high expectations? Or… is it just self-respect and a nasty dating pool?
