How much do you weigh?
If you’re not sure whether or not the question is too personal, ask yourself: “Would I feel comfortable answering this question?” If the answer is no, it’s probably not a good idea to ask your partner.
- Make sure that you’re prepared to answer the same question yourself. For example, if someone asks how much he weighs and he answers honestly (and maybe even a little embarrassed), don’t be surprised by his reaction if you follow suit by sharing your own weight.
- Ask in a public place like a restaurant or store so that other people are around listening as well—that way there won’t be any awkwardness between the two of you afterward!
What’s your favorite way to spend time after work?
You’re at a party, and you’ve just met a guy who seems interesting. The question of what to do after work is always an important one in any kind of relationship, so it’s worth asking this one early on. If you share the same interests and he loves hiking or reading comic books just like you do, then the two of you may be able to build a friendship based on those shared passions. If not, then maybe it’s wise to move along before your mutual dislike for each other gets too strong.
It’s also good practice for keeping yourself open-minded about different kinds of lifestyles and activities. You never know when something might come up that could bring two people together—and if they don’t share similar interests now but have similar aspirations in life, they may find themselves heading down parallel paths later on!
How much money do you make?
If you’re thinking, “I’m so glad I have this question! What is the best way to find out how much money they make?” think again. It may seem like an innocent enough question at first, but it could end up costing you your job and making you lose friends.
Besides, asking someone about their salary is considered extremely rude in most countries around the world. It doesn’t matter if a person has been your friend for years or if they are just meeting for the first time; asking about how much money someone makes is not a good way to get to know them or start a conversation with them.
It’s not even appropriate when talking with people from other countries who aren’t familiar with U.S. customs and practices regarding salaries/paychecks/wages/earnings/income etcetera…
No matter what country they live in or where they’re from originally (they could be from another planet), asking this kind of personal question can lead to awkwardness between two people who might otherwise become good friends if only one hadn’t asked such an inappropriate question right off the bat (or whatever).
Where are your friends from?
- Where are your friends from?
This is an easy one. You can ask him about the origins of his friends and he will probably give you a list of cities or states that they are from. This may also lead to asking if he has any favorite places to visit, which is always a fun conversation to have!
Where did you go to school?
In the same vein, you can also ask him about his school days. Where did he go to school? What was his favorite subject? Why was it his favorite? Did he learn anything in that subject that has proven to be useful in life outside of the classroom? What about a subject he hated—does he still feel the same way about it or has time changed his opinion of it?
He’ll be glad to tell you all about what makes him tick.
Who’s your hero?
Your hero is the person you look up to and admire most. Who would your hero be if you could pick anyone? Would it be someone from history, like George Washington or Martin Luther King Jr.? Maybe your hero is a fictional character like Batman or Harry Potter. They could also be an athlete or musician whose work inspires you.
If this is someone you’ve never met before, then ask what they’d do if they met them in real life. How would they react? What would they say? What would their first response be? This question can dig deep into how much of a fanboy/girl your partner really is!
You should also ask about their role models—these are the people who helped them become who they are today. Is there someone else in their life that has taught them valuable lessons about life or relationships?
What are your hobbies?
While this might seem like an obvious question, it’s good to ask for two reasons. First, it gives you a chance to learn about his interests and personality—and if he’s not into anything besides video games or sports, then that may be a deal breaker. Second, it’s good for getting him talking because most people will have something they’re passionate about other than their job. You can use this opportunity to learn more about what makes him tick!
Ask about their hobbies, family and what they like to do when they’re not busy with their day-to-day job.
Ask about their hobbies, family and what they like to do when they’re not busy with their day-to-day job. This is a great way to get to know your partner better and show them that you care about them as a person, rather than just a lover.
If there are any other things that they would like you to know, this could be an opportunity for them to tell you!
