We tend to rush into things, not that it's always a bad idea. But commitment can be a scary thing. When it comes to love you really need to nurture and develop it. I truly do believe in love at first sight, it’s magical but not everyone is lucky enough to experience it. Take time to get know someone. You have your whole life ahead of you! You should know exactly who you're committing to, especially if you’re considering spending the rest of your life with this person.

Being said, know the answers to the basic ones. The simple questions that you can probably learn in 5 minutes or by some skilled Facebook creeping.

THE BASIC ONES

What’s your favorite color?

Where are you from?

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Do you like being outdoors?

What are your hobbies?

Cats or dogs?

Do you know how to cook?

What's your favorite song?

Do you know how to swim?

Are you a night owl or morning person?

Know the answers to the important ones. These are the questions that aren’t always so easy. Some can be observed, some can change, but are important nonetheless.

THE IMPORTANT ONES

Who do you call when you're sad?

Are you a saver or spender?

Where do you want to settle down?

What annoys you?

Do you want children?

Where do you call home?

Are your parents still together?

Do you like to travel?

Are you a hard worker?

How do you like your coffee?

How do you like your alcohol?

Know the answers to the private ones. The questions that require someone opening up, that require trust. You may scratch the surface early on, but it takes time to truly know the answers.

THE PRIVATE ONES

What are you afraid of?

What do you do when you’re angry?

What are your religious beliefs?

Why do you think you were put on this Earth?

What are your dreams?

Falling in love is quick, but really getting to know someone takes a lot of time. If someone is the love of your life, you’ll probably be able to answer these questions better than they will. Stop rushing things. People have beautiful souls. Sure, you can fall in love with looks. But what goes on in their mind, what shapes them, and who they are is so much better.
