You could be thinking you’re in a committed partnership but he just see’s you as a fling. It’s always best to get this clear from the start.

What are you looking for?

You don’t want to be stuck in the friend zone unknowingly or as boody call. It’s only fair that you’re both on the same page before you get in deep in the relationship.

Where do you see us going?

Of course you’re not expecting the poor guy to give you exact details, like a wedding date. This is to assure you that you aren’t wasting your time. Most men feel pressured by this question, but it’s a good way to find out what kind of man he is.

What do you like about me

No, you’re not fishing for compliments, you just want to know if he’s with you for the right reasons or just your physical aspects. Men find it hard to be honest with their feelings but if he’s truly the one for you he shouldn’t have a problem telling you.

Are you seeing other people…

…This includes all the other women he’s ‘talking’ to. You don’t want to be caught by surprise when he suddenly gets flirtacious text’s from other women. He should be able to assure you that he’s planning on stopping with the play boy tendencies and only focus on you.

Are you ready for a relationship

The man might love you but still need some time to deal with issues regarding himself, women in general or buggage from past relationships. Both of you need to be ready for what you’re getting yourselves into for a healthy and prosperous partnership.
