The Importance of Answering Questions

30. November 2012 by Masha 0 Comments

While you're probably very curious about men you meet online, don't forget that they are very curious about you, too! It's easy to ask them questions about everything you want to know, but it can be a little more challenging answering the ones they present to you.


However, this is an important part of the "getting to know you" process!


Questions at the beginning can be simple such as your favorite things like food and music, places you'd like to travel, details about your job, education, or family. But once you start forming a deeper relationship, a gentleman may start to inquire about your plans for the future... and if he's included in it.


Your first instinct may be to ignore such questions and change the subject, but a better way to handle the situation is to remind him that you'll both benefit by having those types of conversations face to face. No matter how much you think you love someone online, you can't plan your future together until you meet in person.


Be polite about your response. Men can be sensitive, too. He may wonder if you're developing strong bonds with other gentlemen online, as he's likely courting other women as well. It's common for singles to be chatting regularly with several people during their soul mate search. Trying to discuss becoming exclusive with one another is nearly impossible before multiple in-person meetings.


Otherwise, don't be afraid to respond to general questions about you, your life, your interests, etc. It's okay to open up a little more when you're trying to get to know each other. He's just looking for some commonalities and a connection before deciding to visit you. Open your heart and have fun!
