10 Questions To Get To Know Someone Better - You meet someone, maybe you even know them, but do you really know them? Here are some ideas on what to ask in order to get to know someone better.
what should we ask? On the flip side of the coin, when we get to know someone better, be it friend or lover, we often forget to ask them anything at all. We assume that we know them, but do we?
People change, and to keep any relationship alive, we need to keep our curiosity alive.
1. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
Would they make the whole world feel loved, or would they want to be able to fly? You can actually learn quite a lot about people just by learning what their priorities are.
2. Have you ever considered moving somewhere else?
Do they have a secret dream of moving abroad or maybe just to another city? Or, are they the kind of person who wants to live in one place for the rest of their lives?
3. What’s one of your favorite childhood memories?
Our childhoods shape us. Often, we can learn a lot about people simply by looking at their childhood.
4. What can someone do to make you feel really cherished?
We need different things to feel loved and cherished. Some people prefer receiving gifts, others like being told that they are awesome. Some people think that random acts of kindness, like taking out the rubbish or bringing them a surprise coffee at work, is the best thing ever. It varies from person to person.
5. Do you believe in soul mates?
This is quite an interesting question as it shows if someone thinks that life is random or if there are certain things that are pre-destined—or at the very least exist for us to be able to discover them.
There are those who think that soul mates don’t exist, plain and simple, but some have a theory that soul mates were once one soul that was then split.
Others think that we are all born with another half somewhere. Yet, others simply see soul mates as people who are an exceptionally good fit. There are also people who take the concept further and believe that we have soul families, twin flames and so forth. In other words, there are a lot of theories, and you might end up discussing a few of them!
6. What’s one thing you’ve done that you’d never do again?
Most of us have done something that, even if we have learnt a lot from it, we’d never want to do again. For some, that might be dating the wrong type of people; for others, it could simply be never traveling to a certain place again. Looking back, some things often appear quite funny, too, although they may not be so at the time….
7. Do you have some sort of spiritual practice?
Are they religious? Do they believe in meditating? What are their beliefs? This can open up interesting discussions about life, death and everything in between.
8. Do you believe in the paranormal/spirit world, or have you ever seen a ghost?
This ties into the previous question, but many people don’t have a spiritual practice per se and they’re still convinced they’ve seen ghosts. I’ve heard some rather astounding tales over the years, and if you start asking people you might, too, from the ones that can be easily explained to things you’d never dream could happen. Whether it did happen or they just have a vivid imagination is another thing entirely.
9. Have you ever had a recurring dream?
Here, you start digging into their subconscious, which they might or might not want to share. At any rate, analyzing dreams can get very interesting. Of course, you have to be willing to share yours, too…
10. If we could be anywhere, doing anything right now, where would we be and what would we do?
