Psalm 144:4 (ISV) The human person is a mere empty breath; his days are like a fading shadow.

As we can see, time is very precious. Unfortunately, there far too many people wasting their time in dead-end relationships. Some people have spent a year, 3 years, or 10 years with someone they don’t even marry. We can’t get that time back.

To avoid wasting time, here are some “hot and fast” questions a person can potentially ask within the first 2 months of communicating.
WARNING: These questions are for fearless people who shouldn’t be concerned with pushing the other person away, but ensuring their time is not being wasted.

  1. Do you have and want to continue to build a relationship with God?
  2. What are your intentions for dating/communicating with me?
  3. Do you want to get married?… when (after being in an exclusive relationship)?
  4. Are you an effective, transparent communicator?
  5. Do you have or want to have children?… how many?
  6. What are your goals and aspirations?
  7. What are your expectations of me?
  8. Are you looking for an exclusive relationship?
  9. Are you a faithful tither?
  10. Are you financially literate (operate within a budget, working to pay off debts, managing impulses)?

These are just a few questions to help you get to know someone a lot faster. If their answers don’t align with your core values or plans, you should politely let them know it’s not going to work out. Don’t waste time with someone hoping they’re going to conform to your standards. Ask the questions to see if they fit.
