    I think .. a metal bonds with a nonmetal.

    Because a relatively high electronegativity difference is required to form an ionic compound, and in general metals have low electronegativities and nonmetals high electronegativities.

    WHat kind of bond is formed when a non metal bonds with another non metal?

    Nonmetals can form different types of bonds depending on their partner atoms. Ionic bonds form when a nonmetal and a metal exchange electrons, while covalent bonds form when electrons are shared between two nonmetals. An ionic bond is a type of chemical bond formed through an electrostatic attraction between two oppositely charged ions. Ionic bonds are formed between a cation, which is usually a metal, and an anion, which is usually a nonmetal. Covalent bonding occurs when pairs of electrons are shared by atoms. Nonmetals will readily form covalent bonds with other nonmetals in order to obtain stability. They can form anywhere between one to three covalent bonds with other nonmetals depending on how many valence electrons they possess. Their. I answered. x)

    When a non metal forms a bond with another non metal then as @sugarplum15 said, non metals have equal electronegativities and hence instead of donating electron they tend to share electrons with each other. in this situation the bond formed is called as covalent bond.
