40 Questions to Ask Your GF

How much do you know about your partner? Here's a list of 40 Questions I found. And just for the heck of it, I decided to answer them here...

I think that if you have a BF/GF, you could take this list of questions, sit down over a drink and snacks... cuddle... have a laugh... and find out more about them. I think you'd be surprised about how little you know about your partner!

1. Who is your best friend?
I have a few close friens. But I'd say Farizan.

2. Why is that person your best friend?
We've been through about 10 years of good and bad times together. I pulled her down the stairs with me when I was drunk and fell down. I got her marooned on an island for 4 days with me before because it was the monsoon season and we could not get out.

But it's not all trouble with me. There's also times when I shared joys with her whenever I came into bonus money. And times where we would be 2 single girls travelling and having fun.

She is honest, she has my respect, and I know I can trust her, she has my back.

3. What would be your PERFECT day?
It changes from day to day... but right now, I want a day where the weather is perfect, not humid.. and my BF and I have backpacks on (mine much lighter than his cos he will carry some of my load, he's a gentleman like that)... we're walking up some hilly reserve (not muddy or smelly). There are animals to look at, and it is a glorious day.

Then we stop for a picnic in the middle of a large field. There's yummy pate de foie gras on little rits crackers, and cool sparkling white wine. Also, my wagon wheel shaped snack. Time passes slowly. We don't have a care in the world. We live in the moment, for the moment.


4. Would you ever get a tattoo?
I have one. I don't regret it. I used to want even more, but I am glad I didn't because right now, I'm happy just the way it is.

5. What was the worst class you ever took in school?
My worst subject was maths. I always passed it but as a subject, I didn't enjoy it, I didn't enjoy the process. It was just work.

6. What was the best class you ever took in school?
English/Literature. Oh what a joy. Effortless, didn't feel like hard work. I also had amazing teachers.

7. Do you like animals?
Yes, very much so.

8. What is your favorite animal and why that animal?
Dogs. Especially my dog Lola because she is such a darling. But an animal that really fascinates me is the bear.

I like all animals, even snakes. But frogs/toads disgust me.

I also don't like Kangaroos. I saw a video clip once of this guy getting mauled by one. It kicked him so hard that the claws ripped through his clothes-skin-flesh-muscle in his groin. I've been traumatised since then.

9. Do you like your job/career?
Hell yeah! But I am now looking at expanding it to encompass other things.

10. Do you like to play video games?
Not really. If it's there, I won't mind a game or two.

11. Do you like guys who play video games?
Can't say that I do. I don't find guys who obsess over video games attractive.. I actually find it quite loserish.

12. Are sports something that you like to do?
Hmmm.. I'd say no.

13. What sport is your absolute favorite?
I like the gym, and the pool. But if you're talking team sports like basketball etc, then none of it. I do wish I were a gymnast though, I think that is something I would enjoy.

14. If you could travel anywhere in the world and spend a week there, where would it be?
Right now, Bhutan. But I would settle for Nepal too.

15. Why would you pick that place, is there any special reason?
I watched a documentary on it about a month ago. It was enchanting. Also Bhutan hasn't fully opened up to tourists yet... it would make me feel very privilleged to be there. I want to do it before it gets all touristy and commercial. I think opening up to masses of tourists will make it lose some of its magic and appeal to me.

16. Do you watch a lot of television?
Not as much as I'd like to.

17. If you could never watch television again, would you freak out?
No. There's this thing called the internet.

18. Did you go to your high school prom?
Yes. I was prom Queen.

19. Do you still watch cartoons ever?
Of course. I love the Simpsons. Futurama. mmm.... that's about it.

20. Were you popular in high school?
No. Probably only popular in a sense that other girls would bitch - how come that flat chested ugly nerdy monkey girl gets to model and be in magazines?!

Not popular in a sense that everyone wants to be my friend.

21. Have you ever had sex in public?
Of course. Beach, cinema, car. Haven't you?

22. Is cheating okay?
Absolutely NOT. I cheer for Lorena Bobbitt (that's the woman who cut her cheating husband's penis off).

23. Has anyone ever broken your heart?
Yes. But you'd be surprised at how resilient hearts can be. :)

24. What is the stupidest thing you ever spent money on?
Hmm... maybe a pair of sneakers that were too large for my feet. I got them from a factory outlet in Indonesia. It was Farizan (idiot!) that suggested I can just tighten the laces. Then when I got home (Singapore) and looked properly at them in the mirror. I realised they looked way too large. Then I pushed my feet to the front, and was appalled that I could stick my WHOLE FIST in behind my heel. Haaaa.

25. Do you know how to cook?
I do. And I enjoy it.

26. Do you like guys who know how to cook?
I don't mind a man who likes to Barbeque or cook an occasional meal. But I do kinda want the kitchen to myself.

27. Were you a geek in the band? Don't lie...
No. I was the Geek in the library.... but look who's smiling now :)

28. What would your friends say is your BEST quality?
I think- kind heart.

29. What would your friends say is your WORST quality?
I find it very hard to spend money on myself. Apart from my camera, I don't know when I bought myself such a nice treat.

30. Do you like lazy Sundays?
Yes. My work schedule if flexible. But now that I have a BF who works, I do my best to not schedule any work in on Sundays so I can have Lazy Sundays with him.

31. Which is better, hot or cold weather?
Cold. So I can bundle up and be cozy.

32. Do you know how to ski or ice skate?
I have never been skiing. I can ice skate.

33. Do you like clubs or bars or neither?
hmm... bars more than clubs. But if given other options, I would go with something else.

34. What do you prefer, beer or wine?
Ice cold Beer. mmmmmmm. But sometimes I crave nice wine.

35. Have you ever called in sick to work to just go out and have fun?
Fake MC? Of course I have. On many occassions.

36. How do you like to be kissed?
I like the man to take control of the kissing. That's a turn on. Otherwise.. can just be wishy washy.. blah... boring.

37. What is your favorite place to be touched?
err.. i think the neck is a sensual place to touch somebody special.

38. Have you ever had a crush on a woman?
No. I hardly find other women attractive even. Sorry!

39. Do you believe in love?
Absolutely. It's one of the things I live for.

40. What would you never do for money?
Purposely hurt someone I love (???)

  4. HAHAHAHAHAAAA!

    Get your facts right, Loser.

    I believe you're referring to ( http://www.hollyjean.sg/2010/05/last-hoorah.html )

    That was a discussion of "last hoorahs" and whether readers thought it was harmless or not.

    And I said I was FLATTERED that someone picked me as their choice for a last hoorah. Doesn't mean I would sleep with them.

    Just as.. if you were flattered if someone picked you as the number one girl of their fantasies or whatever... it doesnt mean I should assume that you would sleep with him. *rolls eyes*

    Hi Holly, entertaining piece. The questions are somewhat interesting but what I found more interesting is the answer to question number two. Question: Why is that person your best friend?

    Out of the 3 para. of long-winded answer you gave (mostly about what kind of a friend you are and what you've done for her), only 1 measly line is actually about how great your best friend is *chuckle* And even then you can only cough up "She is honest, she has my respect, and I know I can trust her, she has my back".

    Boy, you can say whatever you want in your defense, in actual fact you're a hypocrite, through and through. I don't know you personally but after reading that I'm glad you're not my friend.

    BTW, how were you a prom queen in high school when you were not popular then? The nomination process for prom queen in S'pore must be so different to the rest of the world.

  8. Hi anonymous.
    Personally, I do not know why u would have to nit pick holly's answers like that. Maybe u do not have a fulfilling friendship of your own?
    I think holly meant to highlight all the things we went through together and despite all that, we still remain best friends and have each other's back.
    She is a good friend if u get to know her. There are some friendships where u are made to feel as though everything is a competition. I have had one friendship like that before where the moment I too show liking for say a certain band, the other girl would feel that I am copying her taste, style whatever when we just simply enjoy the same things. And she called me her best friend then. With holly, I enjoy true friendship where we accept each other's differences and at the same time enjoy the things we have in common without turning it into some form of competition. It's open, honest and sincere friendship. And we don't need to cling to each other. We each have our own lives but we know that the other is just a call away.
    She is not a hypocrite. She is a true friend. And I can vouch for that.
    As for the prom queen thing. Hey.. She's pretty and pretty decent during college. Back when she had that virginal glow..Hahaha.. Sorry hols.. Just cuz u r popular doesn't mean u r a good person. Maybe she was voted for her then perceived innocence :p peace holly ;) u know I love u.

    I think anonymous 6.35 is gila. isn't it darn clear that Holly was trying to say her friend has went through thick and thin with her from the very beginning of her answer for question 2??? Like falling down the stairs together and also kena stranded in an island together because of her? isn't that enough to commend Farizan as being a great friend? *roll eyes*
