Meaningful Questions to Build Connection

Meaningful questions are designed to lead you into meaningful conversations.

Meaningful conversations give you the opportunity to really get to know each other. They are meant to build connection. Meaningful conversations help you to feel whether the person you are talking to might be a good future friend or a nice acquaintance.

👩🏻‍🦰👨🏻 Meaningful Questions at the Meetup

These meaningful questions are used at our Meetups in Berlin to give the attendends a process to get to know each other easier and faster. We have them printed on cards.

Sometimes, participants ask if they can take the cards with them so that they can talk about these questions with their friends. Yes, they can. Since we have only limited sets of cards, you can find them here.

If you want, please leave a comment if you liked these questions and how they enhanced the conversation with your friends.

For all who are interested – this is our Meetup-Group in English in Berlin. You will find Workshops and normal Meetups there. Feel free to enter the group.

We also have a German Speaking Meetup Group.

🦝 Four Blocks of Meaningful Questions

These meaningful questions guide our participants through the process from initial contact to a very deep and meaningful conversation after a view minutes.

You can see it at the tables. The mood changes with each question. In the beginning, the particpants are naturally somewhat strangers to each other. Then the conversation deepens. People become interested in each other. They are really engaged in the conversation. By the end they know each other.

It is like coming out of a good movie. People are surprised. As one participant put it: “It’s exciting how quickly you can have a good conversation. After an hour, I felt like we had known each other for a long time.

There are four blocks of questions. Each block has four questions. The highlight of the conversation is in the third block – Deep Talk.

I tell the participants beforehand that they can skip questions if they feel it is too personal for a first conversation. Sometimes they do and that is totally find. I would answer all these questions at the Meetup.

🌴 Loneliness

There is a whole article about loneliness in German. Some people use Google Translate to read it.

But in short: Loneliness often is not about being alone. Mostly, loneliness is about being surrounded by people but not having meaningful conversation and contact.

Therefore, I want to facilitate that conversations can go deeper quickly.
