What’s love got to do with it?

Everyone’s been there, an awkward first date where you are trying to determine if you feel a connection with the person sitting across from you. What if there was a simpler way for you to make that decision within a matter of minutes, just by answering a few questions?

A study conducted by AsapSCIENCE, reported by Business Insider, determined that asking a series of 36 questions could create a connection that was solid enough to invoke the feeling of love. Sounds crazy, right? The science behind these questions proves that they might be on to something. The results determined that the questions lead to a strengthened emotional attachment to the person you share the responses with.

 

Here’s a little excerpt of the question list for context:

They start with using lighter questions on a surface level:

– Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest?

– Would you like to be famous? In what way?

– What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?

 

As you get warmed up, the questions get deeper:

– If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about yourself, your life, the future or anything else, what would you want to know?

– What is the greatest accomplishment of your life?

– What do you value most in a friendship?

From there the questions veer on the side of very personal, but in this case that is where the connection begins to come together:

– Make three true “we” statements each. For instance, “We are both in this room feeling …”

– Complete this sentence: “I wish I had someone with whom I could share …”

– If you were going to become a close friend with your partner, please share what would be important for him or her to know.

 

For many, these 36 questions would seem too invasive and personal on a first date. Asking these (rather long) questions to someone you just met could be seen as over the top, but is there some truth behind this study? Have we been fumbling around on first dates for years when falling in love with a stranger could be this simple, or is it all an illusion? What’s the harm in putting this theory to the test? Your date will either run for the hills, or you could potentially find your soul mate. If you already have a significant-other, test these questions out on them and see if you are really as compatible as you think you are. Try it out for yourself and see if there is any truth behind this science. If nothing else you will definitely get to know the person you are exchanging these answers with on a deeper level.
