You’re on a date to assess if the person is a right match for you or not, right? So, instead of wasting time talking about unimportant things, consider these five points…
1. Get to Know Your Partner
This means, find out about his/her likes, dislikes, favourite films, choice of music, favourite cuisine, his/her lifestyle, family background, etc. Ask as much as you want to, but don’t get personal.
2. Ready For Marriage?
Yes, this is the first thing you should ask your partner. At times people are forced by their parents to get married. If that’s the case, it’s best not to get involved with a person who isn’t ready to settle down.
Discuss with your partner about his/her expectations from you and about what you expect from your him/her too. You need to know whether your expectations match. If they don’t, it obviously means you two don’t make a great match.
4. Job and Savings
Find out about his/her profession and how much salary is s/he currently drawing. Does your partner plan to change his/her profession in the near future and if your partner believes in saving. Remember, it’s better to have all the cards laid on the table beforehand, instead of figuring it out as you go along.
After marriage you’ll be living together, so that means you will need to adjust with each other’s lifestyle and schedule. To make the transition go smooth, discuss your routines. Also, find out how adjusting and understanding your partner is. If your work timings aren’t flexible, talk about it.
