We’ve got all the answers…
When you start dating someone, it’s important to know if you’re both on the same page before you get in too deep.
Skip the outdated advice of playing it cool and mysterious, it’s important to find out early if the person you’re dating is “the one”. Don’t enter the relationship blind, go ahead and ask questions which will help determine whether your relationship will be long-term or just a fling.
If you’re not sure what to ask, we’ve provided 6 important questions that will help you decide before anything gets too serious.
If you and your partner are not compatible, chances are you may be in for a short ride. Science has recently proven that like-minded couples last longer than those who have nothing in common, this is because similarity is essential for developing strong relationships. If your partner doesn’t share your passion for theatre and wine tasting, then it might be worth finding someone who does. Dating apps like Huggle are perfect for matching you with like-minded souls, who share your interests and lifestyle. Who knew compatibility was so easy to find?
You may not want kids right now or ever, but if your partner is not on the same page as you, this will cause issues down the line. Don’t waste time with someone who doesn’t want what you want. You need to find out early, to avoid any arguments when the conversation of ‘starting a family’ arises.
3. What are your political and religious views?
This is a question you should ask as early as the second date. If you don’t agree on political or religious views, this can be a huge deal breaker for any relationship.
4. How important is sex to you?
Different sex drives can tear a relationship apart. It’s an important question to ask because if you don’t view sex as a necessity, this could cause issues very quickly in your relationship. Ask early how often they’d like to have it and the things they like and wouldn’t do. See if this equals up to what you want.
5. How is your financial situation?
Talking about finances is viewed as impolite conversation, however when things start to get serious, it’s a question worth asking. If your partner isn’t one for saving, then this may cause problems in the future, especially when it comes to things like buying a house together. To get an understanding of whether your partner is financially stable, it’s OK to ask how they invest/save their money.
6. What are your deal breakers?
It’s good to know what your partner can and can’t live with. Are you a meat eater but they’re a vegetarian? Maybe they would find you ordering steak in front of them a deal breaker. It’s good to know what they want from a relationship and the only way to find out is to ask.
