What's something not many people know about you?
What makes you laugh out loud?
What was your favorite thing to do as a kid?
What do you like to cook the most?
What’s your favorite TV show?
What is your favorite book?
What was your first job?
Who was the most influential person in your life?
What is your earliest memory?
If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?
Who was your first love?
Is there one day you’d like to relive?
If you could see one person again, who would it be?
What advice would you give to someone graduating from college?
What advice would you give to someone on their wedding day?
What’s the most exciting thing you ever did?
What’s your favorite place in the world?
How many times have you been in love?
What was the hardest thing you ever had to do?
You might be surprised by what you didn’t know about a person you’ve known all your life!
