Some of the serious questions are: In your life, what are you most proud of? In several years time, where do you see yourself? What is the first thing you would do if you only have few months more to live? Some of the light hearted questions are: What makes you laugh? What did you do today that made you feel good? What do you do for fun? What is your favorite word and why? There are certain things that are generally better to avoid. These include, asking where they live- specifically, asking things about religion or asking about what they do for a living. It is also better to keep in mind not to include information about previous dates or how much you miss your ex, when answering questions in speed dating.
