Financial status: Do not ask about his income or debt profile. Do not ask him how much he makes or the highest he has ever earned. This question is reserved for couples.
His sexual prowess: This is especially for a guy you are in a platonic relationship with. It gives off the wrong signal and he may assume you are asking him as a form of invitation.
Health condition: If he has a visible or a known health condition, do not ask any weird or awkward questions about it.
If he is comfortable with the size of his private part: This is a no-go area as it may trigger insecurities. A lot of guys are insecure about the size of “down there”.
Past Traumatic Events: Do not ask about how a loved one died or any of his personal harrowing experiences, it is not good for his mental health. Traumatic experiences should be avoided.
Body size: Avoid questions like “why are you so fat or why are you so skinny”. It is akin to body shaming.
Body Count: Except he offers to tell you himself, you shouldn’t ask him how many women he has slept with. He may not be honest with you, so there’s no need to ask. Plus, except you are his health professional, it is not your business to know.
If he is a mummy’s boy: There is absolutely no need for this question. Even mummy’s boys do not admit to it and he may find the question upsetting.
