Really getting to know each other before committing to a long-term relationship can play a significant role in how that relationship turns out. Asking the right questions of each other is one way to get to know more about yourself and each other. Here are some useful questions to ask in your relationship.

How To Use These Relationship Questions

Work these relationship questions in your conversations over time. They are not meant to grill someone, but to create deeper and complete understanding of each other. Some of these questions are also seed-questions for longer conversations. To that extent always seek to clear up any misunderstanding that these  conversations may lead to.

1. What does physical intimacy mean to you in a relationship? How important is it to feel desired and connected on a physical level?
