Getting into a relationship can be a daunting task for any guy especially if the guy does this unprepared. Relationships often crumble because people enter them without knowing each other well enough to consider if they can date.
Well, today you are in for a treat as I’m going to share with you 10 killer questions you should ask any girl before dating her.
What happens is that most people are vague when it comes to knowing their potential partner before dating them. There are some things that don’t matter like asking your potential girlfriend’s favourite food, come on! You can do better.
Knowing guys the way I do, I know that sometimes without a helping hand, you can crumble and crash. Today, I am here with that hand, let us ask her some questions now, shall we?
- How do you react when you get angry?
I’ve put this as question number one not because it is the most important but because it is the most necessary. We don’t want to date Floyd Maywhether now, do we?
It’s important to know how your girlfriend or potential girlfriend reacts when she gets angry. Yu have to know how easy it is for her to calm down and move on.
Most guys mess up and that’s an acceptable fact. The thing you won’t like is being hanged to a tree by your girl just because you’ve messed up, you can do better than that.
- Do you see yourself as a workaholic?
Dating a workaholic can be pretty tough. They never seem to have time for you. To a workaholic, works comes first 99% of the time, that’s why they are called workaholics not ‘relationshipholics’.
Get me right, there is nothing wrong about dating a workaholic, you only have to be prepared for it.
- Is it important for you to share details about your day to day life?
This question seems pretty obvious at the surface but it goes deeper than that. Sometimes being kept in the dark by your girl can be hurtful, really hurtful, which is why you have to know what’s happening in her life.
Maybe, she had a chillout with friends at the bar and a guy hit on her, you don’t have to be kept in the dark. Let her share her experiences.
- Do you go public with your relationships?
The question is dependable. But from what I know, guys are like wolves, once they are dating someone, we like to mark our territory and make it official that we are ‘here.’
If you are not like most guys, willing to be kept a secret by your girl only to be thrown in the dish after three years, then good for you.
One thing I’ve noticed about girls who love going public with their relationships is that they have an impeccable sense of honesty. And going public is not telling the whole world, no! Sometimes it’s just about letting some of her closest friends know that you are there.
- Can jealousy sustain a relationship?
Most people say jealousy is proof of love. Well, to tell the truth, this statement is vague and it annoys me to the bones.
Sometimes, all a guy needs is to go out and have fun without being worried about his what significant other will think regarding his experiences. It can be difficult to get into a relationship where you are chained to the wall and not allowed to look at any other girl.
- What motivates you?
This is one of the most important questions to ask. This question can be regarded as an assessment question, just to help you see if you are on the same page with your girl.
Sometimes relationships don’t last because the couple’s motivations just don’t go along. Eventually, you’ll get bored of each other because your interests don’t somehow match.
- How important is it for you to do your own thing?
You really should ask this question precisely like this. Getting into a relationship doesn’t mean getting chained to another person.
Although you will be together, sometimes it’s important to live separate lives from each other. You don’t need to be chained to your girlfriend 99% of the time.
Be together but live independent lives. It’s allowed to have fun with the boys.
- How open are you with your feelings?
No girl will ever be perfect and as her guy it’s your duty to make her feel awesome and perfect.
If your girl hides her feelings most of the time, chances are, she’s going to snap at one point and that won’t be nice at all. One thing I know, is that as guys, we tend to feel a sense of responsibility when our ladies share their deepest emotions with us?
- Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Too cliché, I know right! But just ask her anyway. In fact, this can be the most revealing of all questions listed here.
If a person can answer that question within 15 seconds without taking too long to think, then that person is serious about life. If you are not looking to get serious yourself, then pause and think first about dating them.
- What do you love blowing money on?
This article wouldn’t carry much substance if I didn’t bring up the subject of money. It’s important and you should know how she loves wasting her money.
Why should know? Because, chances are high, she’s going to waste yours on that too.
Apart from knowing that, you also get to have a peep into her spending habits. Because knowing either her level of stinginess or generosity can help you plan for the future knowing too well what you’re getting into.
