Obviously, certain questions are appropriate for different phases of a relationship.
Asking someone what their favorite things are, will give you a lot of information in a short amount of time, and it usually won't feel like you're prying (especially if you are both answering the questions). Before you launch into questions that could potentially have embarrassing answers, gauge how the other person is feeling.
Are they the type of person who's likely to be an open book with their answers and willing to laugh them off with you, or are they more guarded and probably worried about sharing too much?
Questions like these - as well as a couple of serious ones - are good to have in mind on dates because they keep the conversation lighthearted, keep it moving, and most importantly, they keep it fun.
