List of questions to get to know someone

How can you really get to know someone?

These questions really help you get to know someone by focusing on all aspects of a person's life.

We touch on the past: your upbringing, memories, and most important events, but also talk about the present: what you like to do now, your habits, and achievements. And of course, you get to share your vision of the future: what are your dreams, desires, and plans?

By focusing on these three elements, you get the "full" picture of where someone's been, where they are now, and where they want to go. Now that's getting to know someone!

Use a game to get to know someone better!

Yes, you can sit down at the table with someone and ask a bunch of questions to get to know each other better. But even if you ask the "right" questions, you may not have a deep, meaningful conversation.

Drilling someone with questions to get to know them better doesn't really feel personal, does it?

Our advice: grab some snacks, open a bottle of wine or pour some tea, and do a quiz game to get to know each other better.

Why asking good questions to get to know someone is important

If you want to get to know someone, there are a lot of questions you can ask. Often these are superficial, like: "Where do you live?" "What do you do for work?" "Do you have pets?" Like we said earlier, you won't get far with that.

The person you’re talking to may even think you're not really interested in them because these questions are so generic! If you want to really get to know someone better, you have to ask the right questions.

At Vertellis, we've long been aware of the power of good questions. We know that's the way to make a deep, genuine connection - both with yourself and each other.

So ... we came up with the ultimate questionnaire to get to know each other better. Not only do you learn about a person's past, present, and future in an enjoyable and playful way, but you connect on a deeper level and create a strong, lasting bond!

Great relationship building activity

We throughly enjoyed the togetherness that these cards engendered. Our relationship was greatly strengthened and we anticipate much fun with these cards on future couple dates. If your relationship is threatening to run aground on the shoals of life, these cards will help to pull it into safe harbors. If you already have a great relationship, these cards will likely make it even better. Highly recommended!

Thank you so much for your kind words and support, Jennifer! It's very inspiring to know that you've enjoyed the togetherness that the Vertellis Relationship Edition game has created in your relationship. Here's to an even stronger bond, open communication, and wonderful new memories for you and your partner!

Relationship edition!

Gave it to my sweetheart, married 20 years, we're both in our 70's for Valentines Day. Over a romantic dinner, we began...the best conversation ever!! Thank you!

Great activity

We took the cards on vacation. Turned on soft music and chose a few cards. We ended up talking about important things that we may never had talked about. We began planning our future to target BOTH of our individual goals as a couple.

Love it!

Gets us talking about subjects we don’t usually talk about works great for our 17 year marriage!!

Never arrived

I never recieved my Vertellis after purchasing it, after it was guaranteed to arrive on Valentines Day. It was supposed to be a v-day gift for my boyfriend. I emailed customer service and heard nothing- Super disappointing
