“How well do you know me questions” are the new “it” trend. Besides making up for a fun communication game, these questions inevitably serve as a “refresher course” every now and then.

You can ask your partner, friends, family, and co-workers these questions to see how much and, most importantly, how well they know you. These questions are a great way to deepen your relationships with them and find out quirks, preferences, and habits you may have missed out on.

How to get started

While the deal on these questions seems pretty straightforward, there is no one set way to use them. If you’re struggling to get started, here are some creative ways that will help you launch your “How well do you know me” questions:

Roll out a “How well do you know me” survey!

“How well do you know me” surveys help you dig out everything that makes someone who they are. You know, questions about favorite foods, travel spots, and even thoughts on love and relationships! (It’s like a sneak peek into someone’s world.)
The best part? You’ll get to know each other inside-out.

You can use online survey tools such as SurveySparrow to create engaging surveys. You can customize them to your liking. Plus, you have pre-designed survey templates at your disposal.

Online quizzes

Sit down together and ask questions as they are

This method will work exceptionally well if you both have known each other for quite some time. Ask your significant other to answer some of these questions one by one and see how much they can get right.

Have a conversation about the questions

Instead of quizzing someone, you can choose to discuss your answers simultaneously. This method is excellent if you want to get away with the “quizzing” aspect and opt for a more relaxed approach to this.

Have them write their answers down

If you don’t want to impact one another’s answers by whoever responds first, you can simply write down answers to the questions, and when you are finished, discuss your answers together.
