I do know his birthday. I asked and he told me a long time ago.

I think it is OK to ask anything you want or are curious about but you should be prepared for him to counter with, "why do you want to know?" The exploration of this can be helpful.

That said, I think there are basic human curiousities that go no deeper than the question itself - we want to see how we are alike and different. If the question is typical and polite, seems like it would be easy enough to answer it.

Therapy is not like other social interactions -so you have to be brave and ask all the questions knowing that you might not get answers. And frankly, I think showing you care is really an OK thing to do.
