What You Must Know About A Person Before You Date Them

You can't hurry love.

What You Must Know About A Person Before You Date Them
Tiera Meadows

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.


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.


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.


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.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
