15 Conversation Starters


If you know me in real life, you know I am an extremely inquisitive person. I love getting to know individuals on deeper levels and asking long-winded questions that are thought-provoking and potentially really random. Of course, I typically ask the most basic questions ever like: where are you from? where did you go to school? what did you study? etc., and while I am still interested in those incredibly boring questions, I enjoy learning about these people in ways that others may not.

So, if you are ever struggling to get to know someone on a more under-the-surface level, consider asking/telling the person to discuss some of the following questions/statements. Not only do they typically provide for greater and expanded conversation, but they also help you understand that person from more interpersonal perspectives.

  1. What are your top 3 favorite scents?
  2. What type of music do you typically listen to?
  3. What was your favorite/best and worst college experience, and why?
  4. Tell me five facts about yourself that I wouldn’t know right off the bat.
  5. Describe yourself in 5 words.
  6. What is success to you?
  7. What makes you feel accomplished?
  8. What’s your philosophy in life?
  9. What are some of the most important things to you?
  10. What is the nicest thing someone has ever done for you?
  11. What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done and would you do it again?
  12. What are some of your bucket list items and have you crossed any off?
  13. What do you look for in a friend/boyfriend/girlfriend/person?
  14. Tell me about your passions.
  15. If you had 3 wishes to fulfill anything right now, what would you wish for and why? More wishes cannot be an answer.
