They say that in order to know more about who you are, you should look at your friends. You will not stay friends with some people for a long time if you do not have some things in common or if you do not have things to talk about. You may be at that point in your life when you want to discover more things about yourself. What you can do is to have a list of questions to ask a guy friend that he will enthusiastically answer.
You have to be upfront about the reason why you prepared questions to ask a guy friend. If you would just ask a random question, you can expect that he will think you are a bit peculiar. By letting him know that you want to get to know more details about yourself, he will be more honest in answering you.
Just one advice to remember: Some of the answers that he may have to your questions may hurt especially if you never thought about it that way but take all the answers as help so that you can improve yourself.
Here are some of the questions that you should ask.
- If there is one annoying thing about me that you wish you could change, what is it?
This question will let you know if you have an annoying habit that you are not even aware that you do. What your guy friend will tell you may come as a surprise but do not worry because once you know what that annoying habit is, you can lessen it and start towards building better relationships with the people around you.
- What do you think is one topic that we can talk about the whole day?
This is very helpful because you will get to know what are the things that you have in common with your guy friend. You will figure out the reasons why you are more comfortable with that guy friend as compared to the other guy friends you may have.
- What is one thing that may break off our friendship in the future?
The problem with friends is that they are not always there to stay. There are some friends who will always be there for you and will not leave you no matter what but there are also some friends who will pass by so you will learn more about yourself and how you handle relationships with others. Expect your guy friend to be completely honest about this question. If in the future, you would get to experience the situation that he has described, it can mean the end of your friendship.
- Have I changed your life?
If the guy friend you are asking about this is someone that you have just met, you can expect the answer will be very vague or he will just tell you a very straight “No.” If the person is someone you have been friends with for a long time, then you will know if you have made some changes in the person’s life.
- Do you think that I am being my true self when I am with my girlfriend?
Your guy friend can usually see if you are as true as you can be when you are with your girlfriend. If he feels that you act a bit different when you are with your special someone, he will state the differences. The things he will describe may be things that you never thought you do differently.
- Do you think that when I am upset I would rather get space or attention?
This is something that a lot of people do not even know about themselves because it may depend on the situation but your guy friend may know you better based on the number of times that he has seen you upset. His answer will let you know for sure what makes you feel better so that you can cool down and be optimistic again.
There are a lot of questions to ask a guy friend that will let you know more details about yourself but in the process, you will also learn more details about your friend. These are some more questions you can ask:
- Do you think that we have a compatible friendship?
- What is one adjective that you can use to describe me?
- What is one thing that you want us to do often?
- What is one thing that you wish I would talk about more with you?
With all of these questions to ask a guy friend, you will have a better understanding of the things that you do.
