My name is Tatiana, but my friends and family call me Tutta. I like writing articles that help bring people closer together.


“What is this, 20 questions?” Nope! It’s 170 questions! 170 “favorite things” questions, that is.

Getting to know a new person is a real treat, and what better way to start off a new friendship or relationship than by finding out about their favorite anything-and-everything!

If you’re starting a new friendship, you’re bound to learn pretty much everything about them anyway over time, so why not speed up the process?

Favorite things questions can really teach you a lot about someone, so take this as an opportunity to learn about anything you are really curious about!

What Are Your Favorite Things?

Whenever I hear “favorite things,” it makes me think of The Sound of Music (which is one of my favorite things)! “Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens. Brown paper packages tied up with strings. These are a few of my favorite things.”

Now that this song is looping in your head, let’s move on to find out some of your new friend’s favorite things!

When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad, I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad…
