Asking questions is the best way to start a conversation and keep it moving. Once you get past the basic information of school, work, and relationships, communication can stall or become mundane. Having fun questions to ask means you will not run out of things to talk about.

Thinking of fun questions requires creativity, but it is not difficult. Be wise about what you ask, and make sure your questions are something you would be willing to answer yourself.
