Only Ask What You Truly Want to Know

Note that when you pose an intimate question for your partner, you need to be open to listening. You may get an answer that you are surprised at or that you don't want to hear. Even so, it's important not to judge your partner or get angry. Instead, if you find yourself upset, take a moment to digest what your partner has told you before responding. Remember, there are no perfect people in the world, and the two of you are not going to agree on everything. However, you need to stay focused on what you want in the relationship and determine if you are both on the same page. Open communication is often the key to lasting love. Keep in mind, your partner may want to ask you intimate questions in return, so be ready to answer them. Relationships are give and take, after all.
