How well do you know someone?

I'm assuming that most people on this site are looking for a deep meaningful relationship. When you meet someone online that you really connect with what's the best way to probe their minds and decide if they are keepers? I've found that word association games and well thought out questions that call for more than a yes or no answer work really well. Of course you have to take care that this doesn't become a Q&A session. You don't want the other person to feel like you're grilling them. You can turn it into a game with the only condition being that you both answer honestly. lol The only drawback is that you have to be prepared for the response you get and not judge. Here are some sample questions that I like to ask:
1. If you could be a cartoon character for a day, which character would you want to be and why? (This reveals a persons playful side and will show how serious they really take themselves)
2. If you were shopping and the clerk gave you more money back, what would you do? What if you found a wallet in the store that had several large bills inside what would you do?
(Of course honesty is a very important trait in a partner)
3.Do you wish you could be a kid again? What age would you go back to and why?
(This question gives you a little insight into their childhood and family experiences)
Does anyone else have suggestions on getting to know someone that you've met online?
