In a ground-breaking study recently featured in the New York Times, psychologist Arthur Aron succeeded in making two strangers fall in love simply by having them ask each other a series of 36 questions.
The journalist writing the piece for the New York Times was so intrigued by the study and having gone through a recent breakup asked a man she was merely acquainted with (they had never hung out one on one) if he was willing to meet at a bar and go through these questions with her as an experiment.
"I wondered what would come of our interaction. If nothing else, I thought it would make a good story. But I see now that the story isn’t about us; it’s about what it means to bother to know someone, which is really a story about what it means to be known.
But despite all this, I’ve begun to think love is a more pliable thing than we make it out to be. Arthur Aron’s study taught me that it’s possible — simple, even — to generate trust and intimacy, the feelings love needs to thrive.
Additionally, asking the right questions will potentially save you a lot of heart-ache if asked early in the relationship if "red flags" pop up. I’ve heard way too many stories of long-term relationships or marriages breaking up because important things never got discussed in the early stages and caused huge issues later on.
These are questions that go beyond small talk and simply making conversation like you will find in most "questions" books. You will NOT find questions like "if you were a color, what color would you be" or "what is your favorite flavor of ice cream".

I’m currently in a relationship and my boyfriend and I are going through this book and we have learned so much about each, that we’ve become so connected… It’s a connection I didn’t even have with a husband of 12 years and I’ve only been dating my boyfriend for 3.
I just got the book about a year ago so we’re just still plugging along through it but It’s just amazing! And our relationship couldn’t be closer!"
We only got through about half of the book and it was pretty obvious that he wasn’t exactly what he portrayed himself to be. I got real creeped out by some of his answers and I am sooooooo grateful I didn’t marry the guy.
We take one or two questions a day and fire ’em back and forth. We both have a copy of the book and we pick out questions and just went through the book. And it made it so we just got to the point where we can just ask each other anything. It was really great for us.
It was just wonderful to just have a starting point to begin to communicate with each other, which was a really big issue for us. So thank you so much. It was exactly what we needed. And I recommend it to everybody!"
And we pretty much spent about a month and a half, going through maybe half or more of the questions so far, it’s our number #1 thing we like to do every day, every night, is learn about each other in depth and find out how amazingly compatible we are and areas we have to learn to compromise in to go forward in our life together and merge our families. It’s the best thing we’ve done!
We’ve been dating for 3 years, and so every night, I pull a few questions out of the box and we’ll talk to each other and answer the questions and re-connect and form and even stronger bond than we had and it’s a really great way for us to continue to have things to talk about when we’re not necessarily sharing everything because we’re such a long distance apart.
