16 questions to ask your BFF to make your friendship closer

You may think you know *everything* about your bestie—fave pizza toppings, celebrity crush and biggest pet peeves. But even if you and your #1 bud are already super close, there's always more you can learn about each other. Try asking these questions so you can understand your BFF better and be there for each other through thick and thin.

What movie or book character do you relate to most?

Whether your best friend is studious and sassy like Hermione or courageous and cool like Katniss, you'll get a much deeper view of her personality with this Q. Next? Take this quiz with your bestie to figure out your friendship personality type.

Do you consider yourself more of an introvert or an extrovert?

Everyone has their outgoing and quiet moments, but knowing which side of the spectrum your bud falls on will help you understand her *that* much more. That way, you'll totally know whether she's game for a socially-distanced skating trip with the squad or if she'd prefer a quiet Zoom movie night.

Which family member are you closest to?

Though everyone may not have an ultra-cool Uncle Jesse like the Tanner trio, learning who your BFF's other confidantes are will help you understand her *and* her clan better. 

What's your dream career?

This isn't just limited to teacher or doctor—what does your bud *truly* dream of doing? Swimming and studying dolphins in a marine bio program, becoming a Hollywood movie producer or designing the coolest new robot? Sharing these ultimate goals will make you feel like you can tell each other anything. 

What's your proudest moment?

Asking your friend to reflect on major accomplishments will give her space to express why it meant something to her—and maybe inspire her to pursue it again. Plus, celebrating her successes with her will make your bond *so* much stronger.

What superpower would you want to have?

Whether your bud dreams of talking to animals or would love the ability to fly, you'll get a much clearer idea of her vibes and true passions with this Q. Plus, you'll have fun figuring out what role she'd play in The Avengers gang. 

What is something you want out of a relationship?

Opening up about what you want—and *don't* want in a relationship—will remind you that S.O.'s may come and go, but you'll always have each other. Bonus? Learning about your BFF's dream crush will give you *everything* you need to help her scope out her next sweetie.

What change do you want to see in the world?

Wanna know what's truly in your bestie's heart? Ask her what causes she champions and how she wants to make the world a better place. She'll *definitely* appreciate your willingness to listen to what issues matter most to her.

What's something you're afraid of?

Being honest about what you're scared of can be scary, but the truth? You probably have some of the same fears. Your bud will appreciate that you're there for her—especially if you're willing to open up about what makes you nervous, too.

Who inspires you the most?

Learning what actresses, athletes or family members inspire your BFF to be the best version of herself will give you a sense of who she wants to be. Who knows? You might discover some new role models for yourself!

What's your favorite memory?

This Q is sure to make your bestie smile. Everyone loves reminiscing about their happiest moment or their most exciting adventure. She may have a hard time narrowing this down! Bonus: once you know her fave past activities, you can plan other memorable hangs that you know she'll love.

What song means the most to you?

We all have that go-to song that speaks to us and our experiences. Knowing what track sparks inspo, good vibes or thoughtful reflection for your bud will help you understand her even better.

What goal do you have for yourself this year?

Voicing what you both aim to accomplish gives you something else to chat about in your FaceTimes. Your bud will be pleased if you remember what she's working towards, and you can inspire each other to stay on track!

What's something you've always wanted to try?

Whether your BFF dreams of exploring a new city or trying the latest global food trend, this will give you amaze insight into her hopes and visions for the future. Who knows? Maybe it'll be something you can do together!

What values are most important to you?

Your pal may put top emphasis on courage and kindness (just like Cinderella), or maybe honesty and loyalty is top in her book. Whatever's important to her, seeing what core values matter most to her will give you a fuller picture of who she really is.

What motivational quote always keeps you going?

Knowing what keeps your #1 girl grounded will help you see what her struggles are, but also what keeps her moving forward. Plus, it never hurts to have another motivating mantra to tell yourself!
