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!

Best couple game out there

We absolutely love the game! It actually brought me and my fiancée even closer together ❤ 💕 Definitely telling my friends about this game!

This is so awesome to hear, Albert! Here's to creating lots of beautiful memories together, connecting with one another in a meaningful way, and sharing many memorable experiences in the months and years to come!

J Taylor (St. Albert, CA)
Fantastic tool!

We are so pleased with this purchase - a way to enter into deep conversation about many important aspects of our relationship without one person "taking the reins" and controlling the conversation. We chose to go on a "retreat" for five days and spread the entire box of cards out over that time. We're looking forward to pulling it out in a year and going through it again!

Absolutely love the idea of going on a retreat together, playing the Vertellis Relationship Edition game, and giving each other sincere attention and understanding. This is exactly what this game is about so well done you!
