Can These 36 Questions Make You REALLY Fall in Love With Anyone?

Remember the viral Modern Love article about the 36 questions that will make you fall in love with anyone? Is it okay to ask them on a first date?

Sandy,

Arielle Ford has mentioned The 36 Questions That Lead to Love on several occasions. According to the study in the article, these 36 questions can make you fall in love with anyone. Arielle Ford says you should ask these questions of strangers on first or second dates. 

What is your opinion? Could it be too personal for date #2?  I recently had a first date with a new man. We had lunch, and for our second date, he wants to go to lunch or dinner again. 

Even though he is very handsome, my gut feeling says that he is still totally stuck on his late wife. She died eight years ago, but he wears his wedding band in his primary Match photo. What? When I confronted him about his photo, he was NOT defensive. He said that he wore his wedding band for five years after her death, and that he joined Match three years ago per his children’s insistence. 

In order to determine IF we are vaguely compatible, do you EVER recommend asking the 36 questions? He is also almost 70-years-old and wants to email or text and NOT have a phone conversation—even though we have already had a two hour first date. Oh, and he talked about himself the entire two hours. He only asked me one question about myself the entire time.

Donald Trump is President. Now What?

Donald Trump is President of the United States. I am numb. I am frightened. Here’s what I suggest we do at this difficult time…

I never write about politics. I don’t even like to talk about politics, especially when things get heated and polarized. It goes against my values to spew hateful venom about anyone. I’ve even lost a friendship because I refused to get into an argument against Obama. But this election changed everything. I started to pay closer attention to both candidates, what they said, what they’ve done in the past, crimes committed, lies, and corruption. And I made a conscious choice for who I wanted to run this country. I am proud to say that I voted for Hillary. I had faith in her leadership. And whether you voted for Trump or Clinton, you exercised your right as a citizen of this country to choose who you thought would best serve the USA.

And now, it’s the morning after the election, and Donald Trump is President of the United States. My Facebook newsfeed is filled with sadness, anger, and fear. I am numb. I am frightened of living in a country with this man as leader. He has exposed himself as a racist, misogynist, white supremacist, hateful intolerant man. Now what?

The Value Of Missing Your First Date

Ever have a disastrous first date? What happens on that date is not as important as the lessons you learn and apply on your search for true love.

Today’s guest post is by Bob Lancer, founder of the Love Method.

What happens on a first date is not important. Whether we end up with the man or woman of our dreams as a result of it doesn’t really matter. We are destined to find all the love we want in our lives as we live true to who we are and learn to love and respect ourselves and others unconditionally.

What is important is that we learn from each first date. Recently I had a first date set up with a very special lady whom I admire very much. We agreed on the place and on the time and I was very much looking forward to it.  Well, have you ever had a brain freeze without drinking something cold? Apparently I did, and boy was it disturbing.
