Best internet dating questions
The better you are at asking questions, the more you’ll learn about someone you meet online and the better you’ll be able to gauge whether this person might be a good fit for you (and vice versa).
So what else can help you stay safe and date smart when you meet someone interesting online? Guard yourself against the assumptions and idealizations that can flourish in a long distance relationship. Don’t just think about the image you are presenting to this prospective partner, think about what they are telling you. Often we neglect the basics because we’re looking for a surefire tip or a secret answer we just haven’t figure out yet.
In the process, you sometimes don’t listen carefully to what the other person is saying (or not saying) about themselves.
You can forget to think carefully about whether you might be truly compatible.
But don’t stop at just asking them what they do and then make assumptions what they think and feel about what they do. Ask them what they love about what do, and what they find a drag about their studies or their job.
Ask them where they see themselves in the future, or what their other hopes, dreams, and plans are.
