But be prepared with your own answer if the tables turn around and you get the same question.
However, don't try to analyze the answers too intensely.
Just make a mental note whether the conversation had flown freely and you had fun with the person and leave the rest for later.
In a speed dating you only have about four minutes to create a fun and enjoyable conversation and to make a good impression.
There is just not enough time on speed dating to have a debate about such topics and you do't want to spoil something right from the start.
Instead try talking about current events; that may reveal much more about the person than asking about a favorite movie or color.
All you are really trying to figure out on the speed date is whether the two of you have something in common and if you would be able to carry out a conversation that lasts longer than four minutes.
Common rule is also to avoid talks about controversial topics like politics or religion.Common questions at speed dating will always be about hobbies and a career, but it is good to be original, make the other person laugh, make him/her intrigued.
