Questions to Ask a Guy

Let’s talk about conversations. I’m talking about real, deep, connecting conversations. Starting a conversation with someone isn’t that hard, even if it’s someone you really like. It’s continuing that can be a challenge, especially when you are lacking in ideas of what to talk about. Be sure to check out our conversation starters over text as this is a pretty typical way for conversations to begin.

Half the problem is that we just don’t know what questions to ask! We’re here to help  with some really great questions to ask any guy to learn more about him and to keep the conversation going so that you can really get to know him!

How to talk to a guy

Before you set out to have that perfect conversation, remember that true conversations require a good amount of give and take. So don’t just pounce on him with a million questions and expect him to answer them one after the other. These questions are a great way to get to know him, sure, but they are also meant to help the conversation flow. If the conversation is flowing, then let it flow! 

Don’t be surprised when he wants you to answer questions back. So here’s a tip: don’t ask him any questions that you wouldn’t be willing to answer yourself!

Most importantly, relax and be yourself! You can’t expect every single conversation to be perfect, but these questions could help get the ball rolling.

Of course, we have a really great list of questions to ask a girl too for you to check out!
