‘Who knows be better’ questions, also known as ‘how well do you know me’ questions, are a list of questions asked to uncover how much people know about each other.
The game is traditionally played by two people. One person asks a series of questions bordering on their personal interests, with the other person expected to answer as accurately as possible. Then, players switch roles. If the answer given is incorrect, the person who asked the question should give the correct answer.
‘Who knows me’ better questions can be a fun way to spend a date with your romantic partner. You can also play the game in any social gathering to have a great time as you try to find out intimate details about the other players.
