Alright, don’t be weird about this… because having weird questions to ask someone could be the difference between a good conversation and a bad one.
Did you know that some people put their milk in the bowl before their cereal? That sometimes people wear socks with sandals? There are people out there who fill their bathtub up halfway, block the drain, then turn on the shower and pretend they’re in a sinking submarine.
We’re all weird in our own ways. Those weird things we do are what make us who we are. And if you want people to like you, you have to embrace your weirdness and simply be yourself no matter who’s watching.
When you try to be someone else, people (especially women) see directly through your fake personality and recognize you’re not being genuine. How can they trust you if you’re pretending to be someone you’re not? Nobody likes fake people.
So when you’re in a conversation and you run out of questions to ask, embrace your weird side and get creative with weird questions to ask.
Asking weird questions shows that you’re creative and don’t mind being silly. That you can be yourself and be confident about it. People will respond and they’ll like you more.
One important note before you begin: Being random is NOT the same as being weird. Being random is what you do with your best friend. You know each other extremely well and understand each others’ humor so it’s understood that you’re going to be ridiculous together with your inside jokes and silly antics. Being random with a stranger or a person you want to like you is annoying. If you want to make friends, randomness is your enemy.
For example, simply asking “Container?” is random and allows for no reasonable answer. On the other hand, asking a person, “What’s your favorite container?” is random, yes, but it also offers them to think about a special keepsake box, a piggy bank from their childhood, or some other . This is what I mean when I talk about being random. As long as you offer a chance for a reasonable response, you can engage in a meaningful conversation.
Weird questions are unique in a way. Since they tend to be so outlandish, they offer a new way of looking at things which in turn brings more thoughtful responses to the questions asked. They’re fun and can turn a boring conversation into a more interesting exchange.
Here are 9 best weird questions to ask:
1. Who is the fourth person on your missed calls?
Does the number start with the first three numbers of your phone number? It’s a popular scam these days.
2. What shirt are you wearing?
As weird as this sounds, the shirt might have a story behind it.
3. Warm lighting or bright white lighting?
Soft, tan-colored lighting for relaxing or brighter faux-sunlight for staying awake?

Mkay, this could or could not be the same as those ticks your teachers have, ‘mkay?
5. You discover a beautiful island upon which you may build your own society. You make the rules. What is the first rule you put into place?
This one is out there but it’s also fun!
6. You have been given the opportunity to create the half-hour TV show of your own design. What is it called and what’s the premise?
You’re the producer, the writer, the director. Make it great!
7. One night you wake up because you heard a noise. You turn on the light to find that you are surrounded by MUMMIES. The mummies aren’t really doing anything, they’re just standing around your bed. What do you do?
8. The Angel Of Death has descended upon you. Fortunately, the Angel Of Death is pretty cool and in a good mood, and it offers you a half-hour to do whatever you want before you bite it. What are you gonna do in that half-hour?
What would you do with only a half hour to live? Would your decision end up being your demise?
9. The Celestial Gates Of Beyond have opened, much to your surprise because you didn’t think such a thing existed. Death appears. As it turns out, Death is actually a pretty cool entity, and happens to be in a fantastic mood. Death offers to return the friend/family-member/person/etc. of your choice to the living world. Who will you bring back?
Would it be someone close to you or someone famous who might bring some more happiness to the world? What would the implications be if it was a famous person? How would things change if society realized the God of Death was the one, true God?
