There's nothing quite like sitting down to a romantic dinner, snuggling up on date night, or aching to have a riveting text convo, only to realize you just...don't have much to say. It doesn't matter if you've been together forever or are just embarking on a situationship-type of relationship: Dry conversations and (ugh) awkward silences happen to even the most well-established partners. That's where having an easy-to-use-in-case-of-an-emergency set of conversation topics and games can be handy. And one of our favorite ways to spark a stimulating chat is with some carefully selected "would you rather" questions for couples.

Get Access to *All* of Cosmo

Sure, you could always just whip out a list of questions (and that’s not always a bad idea), but sometimes that can feel a little too much like an interview. And while playing “truth or dare” is another fun choice, it doesn’t leave as much room to have deep conversations. “Would you rather,” on the other hand, is an ideal mix of funny, inquisitive, and yup, supremely sexy. Plus, it works just as well in person as it does virtually or over text, so it's awesome for long-distance relationships.

In case you’ve never played the game, it’s literally as simple as games can get. Just take turns answering each question aloud (and don't forget to explain your reasoning). We’ve done the hard part of finding the best questions, so now you can just sit back and ask away! Skip anything you don’t feel like talking about, and if your partner decides not to answer something, let it go. The point is to have fun, not pressure anyone into debating a topic they don’t feel like diving into.

This is also one of those times when going on a long-winded tangent about something totally unimportant is absolutely okay. So go on, explain in passionate detail why being itchy is far superior to being sticky. In fact, we encourage it.

Low-Stakes "Would You Rather" Questions

It's a good idea to warm up with a few casual Qs before getting into more serious topics, so ask some less-intense WYR questions to get the creative conversation juices flowing.

  1. Would you rather be rich or be famous (not both, sry)?
  2. Would you rather give up bread or give up wine?
  3. Would you rather only be able to talk on the phone or only be able to text?
  4. Would you rather always be 30 minutes early or 30 minutes late?
  5. Would you rather know how you’re going to die or know when you’re going to die (month and year, not day)?
  6. Would you rather have your browsing history or your texts published?
  7. Would you rather be really funny or really smart?
  8. Would you rather be more outgoing or more introspective?
  9. Would you rather be able to talk to your pet for one hour (they respond and everything) and lose a year of your life, or just go about your not-talking-to-your-pet-life as usual?

    Deep "Would You Rather" Questions to Ask Your Partner
