50 Questions You Need To Ask To Really Get To Know Someone

We’ve all been at a stage with someone where we feel like we know them, but still have a lot to learn. It could be a hopeful love interest or a friendship in its early development. There’s a lot of questions we tend to have and answers we hope to hear the answers to. By asking these kinds of questions, you’re opening yourselves up for conversation, some of which are on topics that may be uncomfortable for some.

These questions range from the cliché “what’s your favorite color?” to “what is the one thing you’ve secretly hoped someone would do for you?” The answers that can be given are to help you get to know the nitty-gritty details about someone, and see them from a perspective not everyone gets to know.

Ask every one of these questions. Both of you should take turns answering. Take the opportunity to learn about the deeper meaning they have in life and appreciate them for the vulnerability they’re displaying.
