Important Relationship Questions: Part 1

black-couple-in-love

I came across an interesting article on Lovendar that said there are relationship questions you should never avoid asking. The author, Elona writes, “You can’t pursue, establish, build, grow or maintain a healthy loving and intimate relationship without asking relationship questions.”

I must agree with her. Too often we jump into a committed status with someone and try to avoid the questions that may be embarrassing or that could possibly make someone feel uncomfortable. What happens is that we only prolong our partners feelings of being uncomfortable, or our feelings of vulnerability.

With that being said, ask these questions early on to maintain, build, establish, or grow a loving committed partnership.

Don’t avoid these questions:

1. Should we get married? – Before you ask yourself this question, you need to ask the one you’re dating. You need to know early on if this is romantic or just intimate.

2. Should you meet my parents? – Don’t wait forever to introduce someone. Use the opportunity of introducing your family, to find out whether or not this person is a good fit for you. Often times we have on our blinders when we begin dating someone. Our family however will be on the outside looking in.

3. When should I say, “I love you?” How soon is too soon? – There’s no actual time frame on when to say I love you. However, saying it too soon actually shows a lack of sincerity, and can quickly dull the relationship. If you say, “I love you,” however you can’t live up to the expectations of what that person feels like someone that loves them should behave, you set yourself up for failure of maintaining a healthy relationship.

4. Should we live together? – Sometimes you want to test the water. Sometimes it’s economical. Whatever the case, understanding if this is a yay or nay for you early on could avoid problems that usually arouse later with this type of decision.

5. Can I forgive you? – Interesting enough, although infidelity seems like it kills a relationship, there are reasons behind infidelity. This isn’t a “get out of jail free” card if they were to be disloyal at some point. However, asking yourself this question early on will provide proof whether or not you could forgive your partner if the problem we’re too exist at some point.

These are questions to ask from the beginning. At some point they will arise, no matter what. You have to ask yourself first, ” Do I really want a relationship?” From there, you can follow up with these questions with your potential mate. Being honest with yourself first will actually improve the relationship you plan on being long-term or short-term, if its just for intimacy. Good luck and stay tuned for Part 2.
