Essential Questions for Building Genuine Connections

Have you heard of the New York Times 36 Questions that lead to love? Google it; I borrowed two questions from their list, ‘what are you most grateful for and what constitutes a great day?’⁠

⁠The 36 questions were designed to start more shallow and go progressively deeper. ⁠

There is no magical list for what to ask in the first few dates; consider these suggestions. ⁠

⁠The best questions are those that give you information about your potential compatibility. ⁠

When it comes to someone’s attachment style, it will be most important how they handle stress and relax? ⁠⁠

These questions are more profound than what’s your favorite color or where do you see yourself in five years, which can feel a bit like an interview. ⁠

⁠Even an answer that aligns with yours, great, we both want two children won’t land well if you don’t think the person is interested in you. ⁠

These questions are best asked when you can look at the person eye to eye. ⁠

⁠Texts should be for checking in, not to ask 50 questions. ⁠

Make sure to pay attention to the answers and see if you can’t make someone’s day by pleasing them.
