If you are looking to strike up new friendships, then is it very important to
use the right get to know you questions. By doing so, you can find out a lot
about the person you are talking to in a short space of time, and you can
discern whether or not they are the right sort of person to make a new
The more friends you have, the richer you will be in the spiritual sense.
Our friends enrich our lives, bringing with them a new sense of
perspective, and introducing us to new knowledge and experiences.
The right "get to know you questions" will tell you all you need to
know about that person in order to help you evaluate their
At one time or another, we all come to
ask ourselves "what is the meaning of life?" There is no all
encompassing answer, and I don’t believe that we are moving towards
some sort of final solution. But what I do believe is that while we
are here, alive on the surface of our planet, we should do our best
to lead the best lives that we can. This involves developing
ourselves, and helping as many people as we can in the process to
develop themselves too. The right get to know questions can really
help us with one of these objectives; that of helping others to
is a two way street. In other words it needs both members of any
friendship to work at furthering the bond between them. Some people
may need more help than others, and some may not see life your way
at all, whilst maintaining that they don’t need your help in the
first place. This is where using the right get to know you questions
really does come into its own right.
Remember that you’re not
trying to brainwash people; we all have a right to believe in what
we want to believe, and tread our own paths, just as long as we
don’t hurt other people in the process. Helping people, providing
they actually want to be helped, is one of the most rewarding
experiences in life. But coming back to that two way street again,
you too may need the help of your friends to steer you in the right
direction from time to time. One of the great truths in life is that
no one has a monopoly on the right way forward, and sometimes we
need others to help us to see that.
Get to know you questions are not the sort of questions that you
start asking the very first time you meet somebody. Yes, you want to
get to know them and to evaluate them so as to see if you both have
what is needed to develop a true friendship. But if you start off by
asking too many personal questions, you will be seen as being too
intrusive. So the initial course of action on first meeting another
person, is to use a few
to strike up a conversation, and to get a
general feel as to what sort of person they are. Remember that you
may be on the other end of this process too, which is great, coming
back once again to that notion of the two way street.
you have a rudimentary relationship with someone, you can then go
about using your get to know you questions to find out a little
more. You’ve been through the correct protocol and broken the ice,
so you can then ask some more "meaningful" questions without
appearing as if you’re prying too much.
Here are some useful
questions you may wish to consider. You can of course modify them to
suit your own independent personality, so you should feel free to do
so; this is not an exact science.
What goals have you set yourself in life?
* How do you go about
getting satisfaction out of your life?
* What is good in your
life right now?
* What is bad in your life right now?
is the best thing that has ever happened to you?
* What is the
worst thing that has ever happened to you?
* Have you ever heard
of the Law of Attraction?
* Do you believe in ghosts?
The one thing you should be a little careful about is religion. I
myself am not religious, but I am spiritual. I have many friends
from different faiths, all of whom respect my non-religious status,
just as I respect theirs. The last question I wrote above. "Do you
believe in ghosts", touches on life after death and may have
religious connotations, so be careful with this one. However, as a "get
to know you question" it is very valid and quite illuminating.
Getting to know people and making new friends is a truly
enlightening experience, and one which you should enjoy to the full.
I hope that some of these get to know you questions will help you to
develop some great friendships that enable all parties to develop
themselves to the full.
