  • If you're at a party with the person you're dating, what usually happens?

    • We spend some time together and some time with other friends. Isn't the whole point of a party to hang out with lots of cool people at once?
    • We spend most of the night near each other, but we're not necessarily touching the whole time.
    • We either hold hands or have our arms around each other all night. The physical connection lets other people know we're together (and coziness = fun).
  • When you're hanging out with your friends or someone you like, do you ever get concerned about whether or not they're having fun?

    • Yeah. I tend to ask things like "Are you bored?" and "Do you want to leave?" even if they seem fine.
    • Not that concerned. If someone I'm with is miserable, I like to think he/she will speak up or do something about it.
    • Maybe a little, if they get really quiet or look annoyed.
  • The person you're dating announces that his/her ex is in town, and they're meeting up for coffee. How do you react?

    • "Thanks for telling me... should I be worried about this?"
    • "I don't understand why you'd want to spend time with an ex. I thought you liked me."
    • "Okay, have fun. But not too much fun!"
  • When you're dating someone, how important is it for his/her family to like you?

    • It's not crucial, but it's nice if they at least know my name.
    • Very important. If the family thinks I'm great, maybe he/she will decide to keep dating me.
    • I don't really care either way. It's not like I'm dating the family.
  • How often do you communicate with your best friends?

    • We're not in constant contact, but I know they're there for me if I need them.
    • We talk and email whenever we have something to say (even if it's not always something important).
    • Usually at least once a day, even if nothing has changed since the last time we checked in.
  • You see a new action movie with your family and love it. Your friends see it later, and question how you could like something so cheesy and dumb. You:

    • joke that they're too jaded to appreciate fine cinema. Really, it wasn't that bad!
    • listen as they point out its flaws, and then make a half-hearted attempt to defend the movie.
    • suddenly realize it did suck, and wonder why I didn't notice the lameness on my own.
  • You're home alone with no plans for the entire day. What will you end up doing?

    • I'll probably spend a few hours online or on my phone to avoid feeling lonely.
    • I'll probably call everyone I know until I find something to do. I'll go crazy if I spend the whole day alone.
    • If I feel like relaxing, I'll catch up on my favorite TV shows. If I feel like a project, I'll reorganize my room.
  • How familiar are you with the daily schedules of your friends and the people you date?

    • In general, I am happier if I know where they are and who they're with on any given night, but I won't bug them about it.
    • I usually have a good idea where these people are and when they'll be home.
    • I'm vaguely familiar with their activities. If someone always works on Saturday night, I like to keep that in mind when I'm making plans.
  • How scared are you that your bf/gf might leave you, or that your friends might stop liking you?

    • I guess it crosses my mind once in a while, if I'm feeling insecure and sad.
    • That's pretty much my worst nightmare. These people are my world.
    • OK, that would suck. But I can't think of any reason why it would happen -- they like me!
  • If you leave a voicemail message for a close friend or the person you're dating, and don't get a call back, how long will you wait before calling again?

    • Maybe a few hours. If I really need to talk, I don't want to wait much longer than that.
    • Maybe a day or so. I'll be a little annoyed that the person hasn't returned my call.
    • Quite a while. And when I follow up, I'll probably send a quick email or a text instead of leaving another message.
