10 Questions To Ask If You Want To Get To Know Someone Better

Awkward silences can be hard to fill. If you are ever in a situation where you need some help stimulating the conversation, these 10 questions can help you to get to know someone better and spark a conversation.

1. Tell me your first favorite song

When I was younger, I remember the first song that I ever learned all the words to: "No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem" by Kenny Chesney. Most people have a specific song that was their all-time childhood "jam". Whether it's a silly tune or a classic, a conversation is sure to begin after you start discussing #throwback songs.

2. Tell me your current favorite song

I never ask people what their favorite song is. How can anyone chose just one favorite song? Personally, I go through phases with songs; I'll listen to the same song on repeat for a week straight and then move on to a new one. Plus, this will give you a chance to discuss the music that you all are into.

3. Tell me something "geeky/nerdy" about yourself

Everyone likes or has an obsession with something that may be considered "geeky" or "nerdy". These and other such quirks are all what make every individual different and complete. Who knows? You could have the same geek obsession with someone else!

4. Tell me your favorite emoji

It doesn't have to be the emoji someone uses the most frequently, but just the one that speaks to them on an emotional level (they aren't called emojis for no reason, right?).

5. Tell me your life motto/mantra/personal saying

Learning the different philosophies that someone prescribes themselves to can reveal a new side to them that you never knew before.

6. Tell me your favorite snack/junk food

If you really want to make an impact, you could then bring that person the junk food of their choice.

7. Tell me your favorite cartoon

Then you can relive all the greatest moments of your childhood: and every episode of Spongebob Squarepants.

8. Tell me your favorite outfit or piece of clothing to wear

Do they like to be comfy or dressy? Do they have any pieces of clothing that are sentimental to them? You'll never know if you don't ask!

9. Tell me which is your favorite: Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook

This can tell you a lot about someone. Do they like to know every detail of other people's lives, look at pictures, or watch funny videos?

10. Tell me about someone you miss

It could be a long-lost best friend, a parent, an old coach, teacher, anyone. Learning about someone and their past can help you understand who they are in the present.

Now get out there and get to know somebody new!
