  • Every person has their own what I call natural strategy for that, some people need less time than others

  • It depends on the persons. Some people are really open and you can't get to know them well within a week and other people can take years or never to know because they are so two faced and shady.

  • To get to the point where I know I'm in it for the long haul... maybe a year. But I think that we never really get to know our partners, so it's a constant but loving fight to continue growing with them, and closer to them.

  • A few months, at least. It really depends on how frequently we see each other and the quality of the interactions. Shared experience is the backbone of any kind of relationship, because you can't effectively establish trust until you've interacted with a person to see how they treat you (and others around them) and had to rely on them to see where their care and loyalty lies. You also need some time to ease into each other's social and family lives--especially if you hail from different cultural backgrounds.

  • By long run do you mean marriage or life partnership? If that's the case, at least 2 years. I think that's how long I need minimum to go through the good and bad times, family functions, to meet friends, etc

  • Everyone is different. I prefer to know someone a while (a couple of years... Maybe one) before I date them. I want to know what I'm getting myself into.

  • My best relationships have started from friendships first, that's just how it works for me so I already have a feel for who the person is.
