The best communication occurs with an even and equal exchange between two people. Getting to know someone new is like peeling an onion one thin layer at the time. But some people, overeager to get into deep and meaningful conversation, go too far too fast. Think of conversation as a tennis match in which the players lob the ball back and forth. They ask personal or sensitive questions that put the other person on the defensive. If feeling inhibited is a problem for some people, others go to the opposite extreme: they use a date as an opportunity to purge and vent. Enjoy :) Talking about favorites is an easy, fun, and neutral way to start any conversation. I am planning to use many of these questions for a mostly multiple choice trivia game for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary party.Ever wish you could predict ahead of time whether or not a dating relationship will work out? It always makes sense to go out with someone you've known for a while rather than a stranger. Ever spent time with a guy who likes to brag about how far he got on his last date? Are the things most important to you also important to them? And both partners in a good relationship try their best to demonstrate Christ-like love.It would save a lot of headaches and heartache, wouldn't it? This kind of "first impression" information is very helpful as you think about who you will or won't consider dating. Not exactly the kind of people you want to trust with your self-image or your reputation. Are you headed in the same general direction in life? In no particular order: Okay, I’ve read the list EVERYONE should read it and answer these questions, at least for yourself. Fathers, definitely have any guy wanting to date your daughter answer these questions, in writing, signed and dated! I just revised this 3/15/14 😀 If someone refered you to this, tell them to check back. I will take suggestions too, remove, add, revise 😀 Also blog topics. What are good leisure activities a family should try to do together? Are you okay that I still might have some feelings for my Ex?
True, first impressions aren't totally accurate. But until you get to know a person, you must depend on first impressions. Are they committed, growing Christians who seek to live what they believe? If they've been in a serious dating relationship before, did they flirt with others or cheat on the person they were dating?
Ever been around a girl who can't do anything but put down her boyfriend?
You may be thinking, Not a good dating rule to live by, especially when it comes to values, moral standards and personal beliefs. It's good to keep in mind that a promise breaker can quickly become a heartbreaker, too.
There's nothing like that quality time and intent in discovering the intricacies of the other person. But there is still so much we can learn about each other; so many ways we can still grow our intimacy through conversation. indulgence Beyond favorites, there's something about knowing if a person prefers a mac or a pc (for example) that can be so telling about personality and how they tick.
All it takes is a couple questions to get that going. These are similar to favorites and can be expounded on, but are great for rapid-fire, too.
