Have you ever just ask a friend a question that you asked out of curiosity and think is an innocent question but the friend take offense to it??

I do it all the time but unintentionally is the problem with me or is it normal??? I ask a lot of questions because I'm just a curious person. I don't ask friends questions to be offensive but I seem to give the opposite impression why

I'd need an example to really know. I think it's normal to happen occasionally, but not regularly. Maybe you aren't sensitive enough, maybe you're oversensitive, idk.

[@4199,BlueVeins] maybe I am insensitive idk an example is a friend of mine asked if I was at work; I replied by asking why (our convo was via text I didn't use all caps or anything I just typed why and he took offense to it?) I didn't mean to come off as offensive I was just curious about his curiosity but he took it the wrong way

[@926164,Prettybratbi1tch] sounds like kinda a mix of his hypersensitivity and your insensitivity. Like if someone asks you a question & the answer isn't a secret at all, just asking 'why' is kinda shitty because it's a non-answer and it can sometimes feel like you're implying that they have questionable intent, if that makes sense. But it's not a big enough deal to warrant him getting legit mad.

well I remember once my friend was round my house and he asked me about my suicide attempt when I was younger. And my little brother was there (who I’ve never let know about it). That pissed me off.

So yeah an innocent question can be offensive in the wrong context or with the wrong people about.
Maybe you should think twice before asking stuff
