Good Questions to Ask to Get to Know Someone – Offline
It is hard to start a physical conversation with someone you haven’t talked to before or you even do not know him/her. However, believe me, a face-to-face meeting is way fun and helps you to get to know someone better, not from the communication they have with you – but also from their non-verbal language.
Yet, what are good questions to ask to get to know someone in real life?
First off, step back a minute to try figuring out what kind of person you are about to make friends with. Is she/he open or a little introvert?
Secondly, take steps forward and say “Hi, I’m Stephanie, ….” with a friendly smile.
Small talks – always do
- “Hi, I’m Stephanie.” You are?
- I’ve seen you several times, do you live/study or live near here?
- Do you have time for some small talks?
- Do you think that the weather today is extremely fine/terrible?
- What kind of weather do you like?
- So you seem not to get used to this kind of weather, exactly like me. In fact, I used to live it … where it is hotter than here. By the way, where is your hometown?
- How long have you been in this city?
- Do you know any interesting places near here?
- Is there any good coffee or restaurant that you recommend?
- So, do you want a cup of coffee now?
Open questions about herself/himself
- It is such an opportunity to get to know you. Can I ask you some more questions?
- You look happy all the time I see you. How can you be that cheerful?
- What is your hobby?
- What do you often do in your spare time?

- You seem to be under weather today, is there anything I can do to help you?
- So you feel down a little bit with your work. What is your job now?
- Why do you lack passion for your work? It is because of the work itself, the working environment, your colleagues, or what else?
