Getting to Know People
It can be difficult getting to know someone a little more in-depth when both of you are feeling a little
shy. You want to impress them by showing your interest in them and not just talking about yourself to
fill the silence. What is the best way to get to know a new friend? Asking the right questions is the
Here's the twist. The best questions to ask to get to know someone better can be dependent on what you've
learned from the initial surface conversations you've already had. That means that the perfect question
to ask one person may not be the best question to ask another so you'll need to use some common sense in
choosing which questions to ask with each friend you want to get to know better. That being said, we've
tried to include basic questions in this generator that will work to get to know someone better in most
Another thing to keep in mind when deciding which question you want to ask is your own opinion on the
topic. There's a good chance if you ask for their opinion with the question, they're also going to want
to know yours. That doesn't mean you need to have a perfectly thought out answer for each question, but
you should take some time to think about it. In fact, many times the best questions to ask are the ones
that you find interesting, complicated and may not have a black and white answer to. That's because
these types of questions will illicit an ongoing conversation and it's the conversation that'll help you
better know the person you're discussing the question with.
Tips for Getting to Know People
If you want to know people, the best way to do this is to show an interest in what they do, what they
think, and what they believe. This is definitely not all about you. It should be a 50/50 conversation.
Ask a "getting to know you question" and share your response to that question after your new friend has
given his or her view. You don't want to ask the question and then immediately cut in and give your
views without fully listening to their opinion and reasoning. It's all about give-and-take. Show your
interest. Start a discussion.
On the opposite end, you don't want to ask anything but questions. You should also share your opinions so
that they can get to know you at the same time. If you simply interrogate a new friend with questions,
they may feel as if all the "giving" is coming from them. Be sure to share your opinion of their
response, and the way in which you would have responded to the same question.
Overcoming Initial Anxiety
If you often feel anxious when getting to know new people better, you aren't the only one. Chances are,
your new friends feel anxious too. The questions you ask can go a long way to toning down the anxiety
that everyone is feeling. Make other people feel affirmed and important by trying to understand their
point of view. Begin by asking easy, but interesting questions. Give your honest opinion, and your new
acquaintance also gets a chance to get to know you.
Getting to Know People Through Q&A
The way people answer your getting-to-know-you questions may reveal a lot about their mindsets. Even if
you don't agree, there's no need to respond aggressively. Remember, it takes all kinds of people to make
the world interesting. If everyone were exactly like you, it would be very boring indeed. By asking a
wide range of interesting questions, you should be able to get to know the person a lot better and at
the same time, they'll get to know you better as well.
