Intelligent questions?

So what are some intelligent questions to ask guys? (I'm getting tired of asking how many siblings and pets he has!)

thanks guys! I think you've all given me some really good feedback.

  • Sounds like you're instigating something called "the interview". This is a conversation where one interrogates the other person - how old are you? where do you live? how many siblings do you have? bla bla bla. It's very one sided, and not a good way to start a two-sided conversation.

    Try to identify something nearby, and comment upon it, ask what they think. Like in a cafe - "i'm thinking about ordering x, what are you thinking of ordering?" then talk about food. Bad example but you get what I mean.
