Time to TALK ABOUT IT...

I've been in a relationship for about 2 months...

Okay. Here's my situation. I've been in a relationship for about 2 months...

So, as it is always fun to find out what's going on with the lives of others and fire off our opinions based on 'been there done that' or for whatever reason, here's the premis for 'TALK ABOUT IT.' No matter what the topic, if there is something on your mind, and you would like to hear what any of the Broosters might have to offer as advice or suggestions, now's your chance for opinions from around the world. So, here's the first question. Enjoy!

***************************************************************************************************

Dear TALK ABOUT IT

I've been dating someone for about 2 months now. I like this person but I'm just not really sure how to grow the relationship and get to know each other better. I guess it would be nice to have a list of questions or something. I just want to know if we have much more in common, if we really can build a solid friendship and if this relationship is good for me as well as for him. He's good looking. He is kind and loving. He likes watching football and basketball as much as I do. But I just am hoping to have a few questions or something to start a conversation and dig a little deeper to see just how much we gel together. Have any ideas?

Sincerely,

What To Ask

****************************************************************************************************

Dear What To Ask,

The first and best piece of advice is go with your gut. Don't date on the rebound and don't date someone just because you can't find someone else to date. If you can get through these key steps, you may be ready for a few of those questions that you want to use to get to know your man. There are a couple of topics that are hot ones and sometimes relationship 'deal breakers.'

If you two have differing opinions it could really mean your fella is a lot of fun but is not a long-term man for you. These two topics include religion and politics. And I would certainly suggest picking your moment when bringing either one of these topics up. As far as a 'cheat sheet' as you mentioned or some basic questions, here's some I think that will give you a good start.

Remember that even a dating relationship should be with someone you can call your friend. And if that is the case in your relationship, don't hit your boyfriend with all of these questions at once. Take the time to talk about getting together and spending sometime uninterrupted to get to know each other even better. Canoe trip? Picnic inside or out? Just leave the DVDs and TV off! And if you're the one asking questions, be willing to listen to his answers and comprehend what he's taking the time to say! Also, remember, you have only been dating two months. This isn't the time to talk wanting children or anything that deep.

Starter Questions

  • What is your idea of a romantic date?
  • Can a couple be in love after just 2 months?
  • Should a couple have a lot in common, or is “attraction” enough?
  • Do you believe in love at first site?
  • What about “friends” becoming lovers?
  • Should a couple also be friends?
  • Do you have religious beliefs? How strong are your beliefs?
  • How political are you?
  • Do you consider yourself the jealous type??
  • Do you insist on having your “own way”?
  • Do you ever get depressed?
  • What makes you mad?

If you have a question, either yourself or from somone who would like to remain anonymous, just send a message to businesslife via Broo! And now it's your turn to suggest some better questions or ideas to really know how to 'get to know each other' at the very early stages of a relationship. What do you suggest?
