5 Questions You Should Ask Before Saying Yes

‘Yes’ can mean a lot of things, but what I’m referring to is relationships. Before you say yes to him or her, you should always ask the following questions:

1.What are your intentions? Yes, this is a biggie and probably the most important question to ask. If you don’t know the other person’s intentions or your intentions don’t match theirs, you should wait to become official. Establishing intentions in the beginning will also build trust in your relationship.

2. Are you a jealous type of person? This is important because you don’t want the other person randomly upset and you have no idea what you’ve done wrong. Just like having your intentions known in the beginning, knowing whether the other person is the jealous type or not can save you a headache and stress.

3. Is talking everyday something you look forward to or too much work? Having good communication is key to keeping a good, lasting relationship.  Some people may say that talking everyday is a hassle and unnecessary, while others may love waking up or calling the other person everyday. You have to establish this communication “schedule” because if not, you may not be in the relationship very long.

4. How important is sex to you? Now, this may not pertain to everyone, but to many people, this is important. Sex is a part of many people’s relationships and it has to be established between you two. You wouldn’t want the other person to feel uncomfortable while you feel the opposite and vice versa. So, establish that and you should be fine.

5. How do you feel about me hanging with the opposite sex?  This goes along with trust and communication. Establishing this will also save you a headache, argument, and stress. Just think about it: if the person is indeed the jealous type, wants to talk everyday, has the right intentions, but doesn’t want you out with your opposite sex friends, is it really worth it? You have to make time for your relationship, but most importantly yourself. You can’t lose yourself trying to please everyone.

Just remember to ask these five questions and maybe some personal questions you have on your own. You don’t want to get in a relationship regretting it a week or two in. Save yourself some time and stress. HCXO!!!
