It started with a message on Facebook and proceeded to almost eight weeks and nearly 200 pages of messages back and forth before we met in person. We were serious about getting to know each other and knew that the more we knew at the beginning the fewer surprises we’d have later. We asked a lot of questions and were very open and honest in our communication.
Our messages always included a new question at the end. We would reply to the question and send that question back to be answered by the other one. Oftentimes a reply would be a full paragraph and begin a discussion that went back and forth, leading to more questions and more discussion.
We compiled a list of questions we asked one another in response to the interest of some of our friends. This is not a list that guarantees a relationship will work out but may help guide you as you get to know each other. Be as honest as you can be with your answers and most of all, as with any decision you make, seek God’s will.
