If you just started online dating, or perhaps you’re a veteran, there are a few important questions to ask your potential date so you can more easily determine if he or she is a suitable match for you.
Things to note: Please DON’T send a list of questions in a personal email. You’ll make your potential suitor think they’re interviewing for a job! Sprinkle them over a few notes back and forth, and try to make them flow organically. Writing an email that starts with “Hi. What’s your most embarrassing moment?” is probably not going to get the kind of answer you’re actually looking for. Better yet, try to take it offline as quickly as possible so you can move away from being penpals and move into live “data-dating,” in which you’re collecting data about your potential partner while having FUN.
We do believe that while the best way to get to know if you share values as well as chemistry is to observe whether a person’s actions match their words in real life; however, as a precursor, use this list to discover if that “future special someone” you just met online is the real thing.
