18 IMPORTANT QUESTIONS TO ASK A POTENTIAL FRIEND!!!

When first meeting someone it is wise not to ask very personal questions but to be very general in the questions which you ask to determine whether he or she may make a good friend or even a potential mate. It is important to find out quickly whether you have some mutual interests upon which you can build a further relationship.

What kind of work do you do?

Are you married?

Do you have children?

Do you have any hobbies?

What do you do in your spare time?

Where do you live?

If you do find out that you have some things in common then you can continue to ask more detailed questions.

How long have you worked at your current job?

Are you happy with your job?

Do you intend to move up the ladder or will you be switching companies?

Where do you think you’ll be ten years from today?

What will you be doing in your retirement?

What do you like the most?

What do you hate the most?

What do you get angry about the most?

What do you do for entertainment?

Do you follow any sports?

If you could live your life over what would you change?

What characteristic do you most admire in others?

Once you have asked these questions and any others which popped up during the conversation you can further ask more intimate questions about family and friends and specifically what the spouse or friends do for a living. After asking the 18 or more questions you will be in a pretty good position to know if you have enough mutual interests to pursue the relationship or to merely categorize it as a casual acquaintance or relationship.

15 QUESTIONS TO ASK A POTENTIAL FRIEND OR NETWORKING ACQUAINTANCE!!!

When asking an almost total stranger questions it is best to start off with rather general open ended questions and then to graduate to more personal or private questions if he or she is a possible future friend that interests you.

Also try not to ask questions like a machine gun one after the other but ask follow up questions and offer your own personal information relevant to the question. After a question is answered you can interject words such as interesting, I like that, how nice, etc. to show that you appreciate the response. Discuss relevant things along the way and don’t just act like your only interrogating that potential friend.

Sometimes you can start off with Hi, my name is x. What’s yours? Then start questioning.

Remember, you don’t have to ask all these questions at the first meeting or introduction to a new human because you will scare him or her away by acting like an aggressive interrogator.

What do you do for a living?

Have you always done x for a living?

Are you a local?

What do you do in your free time?

Do you have any hobbies?

How long have you had that hobby?

What does your spouse do?

Do you have any children?

After these few initial questions you can probe deeper with more personal questions.

Do you like your job?

How long have you lived here?

Do you have many friends?

What are your future plans?

What interesting places have you travelled to?

What is your favorite food or drink?

Are you on Facebook or Instagram?

After determining whether they are a potential future friend ask for personal information such as an email or telephone number and use phrases such as- It was great talking to you. It would be nice if we kept in touch. What is your email or cellphone number?
