Why is important to have some important questions answered?
There are numerous things you can discover about your significant other by knowing the answers to some important questions. The more you know, the more prepared you’ll be for a compatible, long-term relationship. Otherwise, you should develop an exit strategy that will leave all your body parts and possessions intact. It’s a challenge to make a long-term relationship work with a significant other since people have different personalities. Introverted vs. extroverted. Funny vs. serious. Heart-driven vs. head-driven. Adventure seeking vs. home-bound. Conservative vs. liberal. Goal-oriented vs. free-spirit. Being opposites does not mean that you can’t be successful in a serious relationship, but it does mean you might have to work harder to find a good balance. However, if you’re not aware that these differences exist or don’t know which side of the spectrum your significant other is on, you may be questioning why you’ve been experiencing dissatisfaction and frequent arguments.
What subtle and not so subtle differences do the two of you have?
Additionally, finding out the subtle and not so subtle differences between the two of you can help prepare you to handle a potential break-up. If you know that you have drastically different views than your significant other after asking these questions, you might find them insurmountable. Isn’t it better to know now, rather than find out after you're married or have children? That voodoo doll might weird you out a little when you find it in her drawer after arguing about whose turn it is to change the baby's diaper. On a more serious note, discovering the answers to these questions can be fun, provide hours of entertaining conversations, and deepen your connection with each other. There is more to a rewarding relationship than sexual attraction. It’s time to get to know and appreciate each other. Along with finding out a little more about your significant other, I’ve thrown a few questions in about you. If your partner shows no interest in asking you questions to learn about you, doesn’t remember what you told them, or doesn’t care to even ask about your day, you may be more into this relationship than they are. Be wary of where you go from here if there is a lack of interest.
