    i thought these ?’s were kind of funny actually…. but not that realistic. so yea maybe an update or something like that…
    Stephanie :)

  2. britany

    I thought they were pretty good actually. They are going to become pretty useful for me to ask for my COM class since we are finding questions like these online to get to know one another. Good Job!

  3. natalieelizabeth.

    yeah. i think 80% of these questions are very unrealistic.lmao >< i cant seem to find a site with actually questions people would actually ask.

  4. Mikaela

    Haha, some of these were helpful. I just have a teacher that is like family to me, and I always try to ask him a random question everyday. Keep up the good work!

  5. sinsy

  6. K.C.

  7. Jess

    These are soo cool :) They went down dead well in one of my classes, we put them in a hat and randomly chose one :) People enjoyed it alot :)
    Thankyou x

  8. Jess

    I love these questions. The idea behind them isn’t always to ask a realistic question but a fun one. Its a great game for a party!

  9. Christina Hathaway

    I thought they questions were very good. I’ve been trying to come up with get to know you questions for a party with my friends. We had the party using these questions and a few others and it went GREAT. The cool part is that these ARE some questions asked in real life. Maybe not all at once, but they’re still asked.

  10. Dan

    For all of those who say “these aren’t questions you ask your friends” or “why would you ask favorite sex positions”. Please crawl out of the hole you’re living in. My friends and I talk about this sort of stuff all the time, and they talk about this sort of stuff with their other friends, their wives talk about this stuff with their friends as well. Maybe you should get off the computer once in awhile and talk to your friends, they might surprise you. If someone doesn’t want to be your friend because you asked them a simple or silly question, perhaps they were never really a friend in the first place.

  11. banana mannnn ;D

    haha, nice questions (y)
    Yeh, wtf is with all the comments saying their not quesitons to ask your friends? Their heaps good questions..? I asked a couple of my friends and their still my friends ;D

  12. crisw

    Far, far too many questions about pop culture. I am one of those people who does still read books- and who has not watched television in over 20 years! Most of these were pretty flip questions, rather than ones to really make you think.

  13. Friend Questions

    A lot of these are what I like to call “friend questions.” In other words, if you ask enough of these questions of your friends, you’ll wind up being better friends with them. And if you ask enough of these “friend questions” of an acquaintance, you’ll eventually wind up becoming friends.

    And honestly, I think a lot of these really are cool questions to ask people. I’m not sure what the various haters and complainers think would be better questions to ask people, but I’d suggest that if they want to complain, then they should try to actually add something to the “cool questions to ask people” discussion by giving some examples of what THEY would think would be useful.

    Heck, if enough people added their ideas in the comments, then this could turn into a “1000 questions to ask” thread. I can think of lots of ways to expand this post. For example, you could include questions to ask at a party. You could include email questions to ask friends. My favorites are the “have you ever” questions, for sure.

  14. f

    My friends and I talk about sex all the time. I don’t get why these are questions you wouldn’t ask your friends.

  15. Holly Halliwell

    Oh and I think these questions are really good. I would call them “friend questions”. Questions that would be fun to ask your friends! Thank you

    – Holly Halliwell

  16. That guy over there

    i went through the list and found two that i didnt already know about all of my friends… wtf is sophies choice anyways??

    Moral of the story… if you need to ask these… your not really friends…
