Being in LDR requires very strong emotional strength, even if you’re new to LDR, it can take a huge toll on you at the beginning.

It’s important in the beginning to have an open mind to try everything to make it easier for you during that time.

In my LDR, I have tried everything through the years, and it kept us strong.

Some of those questions games we tried already, and some I wished I had known about when we wanted to kick things a bit.

They will strengthen your relationship, and they’ll help you get to know your partner in so many ways.

Not only that, but they’re so much fun to try.

So make sure to keep this post handy whenever you need more ideas to spice things up with your LDR partner.

Let’s get started. 

What questions can I ask in a long-distance relationship?

At the beginning of a long-distance relationship, you try to get to know your partner on many levels.

Sometimes asking the right questions helps to do just that. 

Types of Questions to Ask in a Long-Distance Relationship 

When it comes to the types of questions to ask your partner in a long-distance relationship, anything is on the table. 

It can be from personality questions (We will get to that later), to playing questions games.

Long distance relationship question games

In this part of the post, I’ll talk about questions games you can try in your LDR, they range from normal questions to fun games that will deepen your connection together. 

1- Pick a theme 

This is about picking which types of questions you would like to ask, whether that’s life questions, personality questions, or even kinky questions. 

I suggest at the beginning to keep it light and share what you care to know about the person.

Whether that’s about their plans or their current favorite things to do daily.  

2- Personality

This type of question game to ask in a long-distance relationship is fun if you know what to ask.

And if you don’t, that’s okay. 

Different types of personality questions can be more on the surface type of questions, like: 

What is the most memorable gift you’ve ever received?

Or, How do you handle stress or difficult situations?

The other type of questions are slightly deep, but it helps to know what kind of personality your partner has, whether that’s they have a bad temper or they are more of an introverted person.

3- Hobbies

This one maybe you have already asked but if you haven’t yet or think it’s a kinda lame question think about it again. 

Knowing your partner’s hobby and what they’re interested in doesn’t only mean you care about their interests, but it helps to find everyday things to talk about or try together for when you meet.

As much as it’s essential to know about your SO (significant other) it’s also essential to understand their relationship with their family. 

Yes, it can tell you what kind of person you’re dealing with in most cases.

These questions can help you both understand each other’s family backgrounds, values, and experiences, which are important aspects of each person’s identity.

Remember to keep this conversation light since it can be sensitive for some people.

5- Friends

You are the top 5 people you spend time with. And that couldn’t be further from the truth. 

Knowing who are the people your partner hanging out with will tell you what kind of person they are.

  • Would you like to travel with your friends around the world?
  • Do you tell your friends everything? And why?
  • What could destroy your relationship with your friends?

6- Food 

My favorite topic. 

If you love trying out new food or different cousins like I do, it’ll be so much fun to share that with your partner. 

  • What was the last new dish you tried?
  • Are you into different cuisines?
  • What’s your favorite cuisine?
  • Do you like spice and flavored dishes or basic dishes?

  • Do you prefer to cook your favorite dish or try it in a restaurant? 

If you’re from a different culture, I suggest gathering a collection of pictures and showing it to your partner and asking if they would try any of it.

7- Weird things they heard about

Who has never experienced or heard something weird? It’s fun to share such stories with your partner. 

It goes as simple as What was the one weird thing you heard about till today? 

Or if you want to go deeper, here are a few questions to ask:

It’s similar to a hobbies’ topic, but this one is for you if you want to dig deep into your partner’s interests:

  • Have you tried anything lately and are interested in doing it again? 
  • What do you like to do on a daily basis for fun?
  • Is there anything you would like to experience?
  • What’s your go-to theme for having fun?
  • What’s the latest book, movie, or TV series you’ve been obsessed with, and why do you love it?
  • If we could spend a day together pursuing a shared interest, what would you choose for us to do?
  • Tell me about a memorable adventure or experience related to one of your interests.

9- Life and religious beliefs 

It’s important to know this in an early relationship in case you have a different religious view, or you don’t practice at all.  

If you’re into religion and would like to know about your partner’s beliefs, feel free to ask them about it. 

Just notice that not everyone is comfortable talking about this, so only ask with good intentions and see if your partner is okay with it.

  • What are your beliefs?
  • Do you follow any religion? Why not?
  • If you don’t follow any religion, what made you stay off?
  • Were you forced to practice your religion?
  • What are your thoughts about today’s world?
  • Do you believe in facts?
  • Do you mind being with someone who is an atheist?

For atheists

  • What made you turn into an atheist? 
  • What kind of books have you read about this topic?
  • Since when have you been an atheist?
  • What kind of religion did you practice before being an atheist?
  • What’s your view on today’s world?
  • Do you mind being with someone who practices religion?

10- Lifestyle

Another fun question game to ask your long-distance partner is about their lifestyle. When you’re away, it’s hard to know what their lifestyle looks like. 

Also, it helps later on when you finally get together what to expect.

In an early long-distance relationship, it’s important to know your partner’s views and beliefs about love. But instead of doing it bluntly, you can do it in this fun game. 

What if questions?

16- Situational quizzes (Scenario)

This used to be my favorite type of fun game to play in a long-distance relationship. Basically, it is what it sounds like.

You create a scenario and based on this scenario, your partner will explain what they will do. 

Here are some scenarios to try:

  1. Vacation Destination: If we could go anywhere on vacation right now, where would you choose: a tropical beach, a bustling city, or a peaceful mountain retreat?
  2. Dream Date Night: You have one night to plan a dream date for us. What would it entail: a romantic candlelit dinner, an outdoor adventure, or a cozy movie night at home?
  3. Superpower Selection: If you could have one superpower, which would you pick: invisibility, time travel, or mind reading?
  4. Survival Skills: Imagine we’re on a deserted island. What’s the first thing you’d do to ensure our survival: build shelter, find food, or signal for help?
  5. Movie Marathon: We’re having a movie marathon. Which genre do you choose: action-packed blockbusters, heartwarming rom-coms, or mind-bending sci-fi films?
  6. Celebrity Encounter: You bump into a celebrity on the street. What’s your reaction: ask for a selfie, strike up a casual conversation, or play it cool and keep walking?
  7. Travel Decision: You won a free trip, but you have to leave right now. Where would you choose to go without any prior planning?
  8. Unexpected Challenge: You find a mysterious locked box in the attic. What’s your first move: try to open it, call for backup, or leave it alone?

Just choose your favorite and send it as it is.
