Dating and Relationship Advice

Being thoughtful and showing that you love someone is not always easy. We aren’t all naturally gifted at expressing how we feel and sometimes it can be overwhelming to find the right words.

One of the best ways to show that you care is by asking your partner questions about themselves. Sometimes non-verbal communication can get lost in translation and cause misunderstandings behind your intentions. But verbal communication lets your partner know directly that you're thinking about them and want to know how they feel.

Here are some types of questions you can ask your girlfriend in order to make them feel loved, appreciated, and cared for.

Questions About Self-Care

When a partner asks a question about self-care, it makes us feel special. Why? Because it lets us know that they care about our basic needs and that they understand we can’t run on an empty tank. We need self-care and security to function and be the best version of ourselves.

Examples of this are…
Did you eat today?
How did you sleep?
How was your day?

Questions To Connect With Each Other

Asking questions about your relationship is a great bonding experience. It's mutually beneficial too—you can learn more about how your girlfriend feels about you and find new activities to enjoy together.

Examples of this are…
What’s something you want to try together?
What is your favorite memory of us?
What fictional characters make you think of us?

Questions To Get To Know Her Better

Everyone loves to talk about themselves. It's important to feel heard and understood in any relationship. You probably already know the basic, baseball card stats about your partner, but it's also important to ask questions to get to know them on a much deeper level.

Examples of this are…
Where do you see yourself in five years?
What was your favorite part of childhood?
What’s something you wish you could do but are too scared to?

Questions On How To Enhance Her Life

A wonderful way to show your girlfriend that you care is to ask her questions regarding actions you can take. Actively trying to enhance and improve her quality of life is the ultimate way to show that you care. Remember, love is an action word.

Examples of this are...
What can I do to make you feel better?
