You’re 36 Questions Away from Romance

Bringing you the best of mental health

Can falling in love be as easy as asking and answering 36 questions?

Well, no; they have to be the right questions and you also have to have at least four minutes of eye contact.

Social psychologist, Arthur Aaron, needed to create a sense of emotional closeness in subjects for an experiment to work. He devised a list of 36 questions for them to ask one another, followed by four minutes of eye contact. It worked well; so well, in fact that it was the start of a romance for several subjects. Some got married.

If you have someone you would like to share the questions with, the best way is on this website. Click here to get things started.
