Relationships are all about compatibility.
Even if there’s a lot of infatuation and sexual tension to start with, all it takes is a few wrong likes and dislikes to fall apart.
For a relationship to be successful, both the partners can have different likes and dislikes, but their principles towards life and their approach towards the future have to be the same.
If one of you likes working hard while the other person lives for the moment, it is bound to leave one of you with a few moments of repressed anger.
Getting to know the one you love early into a relationship can help both of you learn more about each other faster.

Questions to get to know each other
Sometimes, the right answers can make all the difference between a failed romance and a happy one.
At Lovepanky, we’ve compiled 60 light hearted questions that you can ask your new mate, either through an email or by asking each other in person *though email would be preferable*.
It may seem funny at first, but deep inside each of these questions is a subtle answer that tests your compatibility.
Both of you don’t have to agree on the same answers. But when your new lover answers these questions for you, take a good look at each answer and ask yourself if you’re comfortable with the answers.
Some of these answers will reveal your partner’s lifestyle and goals, while a few others will reveal the way they approach life. And a few more will reveal their sexual preferences and expectations from a partner. And when you do get the answers to these 60 questions, you’ll truly know if you’re in a relationship that can stand the test of time.
