Femi Kuti got a surprise visit at the Afrikan Shrine
Everyone is searching for a partner or rather do I say “TRUE LOVE”, though the majority of ladies never agree that they are searching and am yet to figure out the reason why. However, I feel that it could be as a result of not wanting to sound or appear desperate. While those who are already dating are looking for the best means to get intimate with their partner and discover their true personalities, and the kind of questions to ask to get to know him/her better. An Igbo adage says ” Onye ajuju ani e fu uzo” which means ” The one who asks questions never get lost” Eager to get close to your guy? There are different types of dating questions asides bedroom conversation questions which can help reveal some secrets, mysteries, and help you learn about his past, present and future as he learns about you. Most people are scared about the questions to ask because they do not know the reaction they are likely to get from their partner, but the truth is asking these questions are necessary and so to ease the tension the questions are likely to generate you could make it fun like a game.
Few Tips that could help give Intimate Questions a better Atmosphere
There are a few things you need to know to help you spice up the atmosphere and also make your partner feel at ease when answering them. Below are a few of them.
Turn it To a Game
Sure you want your partner to be open to you but then if he/she is not feeling good, or they feel like they are in a job interview or that they are being interrogated, they might not because they would feel that with the way things are going if they be totally open there would be a problem so they try to thereby hide somethings, but then if you make it a game and you both laugh over funny things it makes the atmosphere lighter and more conducive for other discussions. There are different games you can play.
Get some Rules for the Game
The first and simplest game that you both can play is what I tag ” PICK and TELL” whereby you both write your questions of what you want to know about your partner and keep separately after which you take turns to pick and tell what your question is about. Another way you can go about this look for any other random game and play of which anyone who wins gets to ask the other a question of their choice. You both can also play “T & D (Truth and Dare)” game, and make sure you regulate it should your partner be picking just the dare.
You could have rules like; No skipping of questions, No lies, No refusal to answer a question and penalties could be that the offender pays the bills of your next outing, cooks the favorite meal of the winner, Take the winner shopping, Get the winner a gift. And if your guy is quite competitive, he may be more willing to participate if you make it a game with rules and points.
Let there be a Natural Flow
Natural is the watchword. Don’t sit down at a restaurant on a first date, order your drinks, and immediately start a fire brigade questioning or there may not be a second date. Let your questions follow each other simultaneously as your discussion unfolds and do not just skip your questions for instance ,” You asked your partner what school he attended of which the next question should be the course he/she read and then you left it to ask him/her if they have ever cheated their partner and why. Do not start from very deep questions that could scare your partner off. You could start with simple questions that should be one of the happy moments of their life like “what is the most memorable day of your life that you are still grateful for“. Unless you both decided to have a formal session of getting to know each other by asking any questions that have been on your mind, try to keep things on low-key.
What do You Want to Know
There should be a level of certainty to what you want to know. Good communication would strengthen your relationship with your partner. Then have it at heart that you are about to dig into someone’s life and it definitely won’t be as yours, so get yourself a listening ear, patience, and know that try not to forget that no one is perfect and as to that everyone has his or her own perspective and reasoning of things. When you are finding yourself in shock, you both can go for a break or better still change the topic and leave it for another day.
Be Smart in your Choice of Questions
No doubt there are some questions that are perfect for a quick text conversation. But then, don’t ask questions via text that you know would lead to a lengthy discussion or response. More in-depth questions should be saved for face-to-face conversations.
If you have checked things and you feel that the comfort of the home is better, then that is perfect. All you need to do is keep your house very clean and decorated if possible, then make some very nice delicacies and appetizer and call on your partner. when he/she comes you could both see a movie and from there going with the perfect time ask some questions and others comes naturally. Ask for elaboration or more explanation when appropriate and if your guy is particularly brief when answering a question, you may want to rephrase some questions. For instance, if “What do I need to know about your sex life?” is making your partner retreat, then ask more questions specific to this one. “If there was a movie about your sex life, what would be captivating and intense scene?”.
Don’t Judge or get Angry with your Partner
You need to at this point have total control of your emotions, try your best not change your mood because you are not happy some things you heard. Also never go judging your partner and giving them instances of actions they should have taken to remedy or change the experiences they are sharing with you. Never also get angry with your partner as at the cause of the discussion, if not you might be pushing your partner away from sharing personal, challenging or disturbing issues with you and being open to you at all times.
Do Not Interrupt
Interruption has a way of cutting one’s flow or even boldness gathered to talk about a particular thing. Do your best not to interrupt smooth and perfectly good conversations just to ask the questions. If a guy is happily engaged in talking to you, listen and learn about him that way.
