  • Enough to know you'll be safe with them, but going out with them is how you get to know them:)

  • Depends on the person. I prefer getting to know a person in person rather than through emails, texts, and phone calls. At least in person I can watch body language and facial expresions to see if they are true or not. I think you learn more about a person by spending more time with them. Yes, you can learn about them without being with them, but you are missing out on somethings.

  • I didn't know my husband at all before we went out, we met at a party and when on a date the next day and were still happily married, same with quit a bit of past relationships, to me it's not better or worse, sometimes it's worth it to go out with someone in order to get to know them

  • Going on date doesn't mean your asking for someones hand in marriage. Going on a date is feeling out whether or not you guys might be compatible in any way shape or form. People make actual dating too complicating. A date has no labels attached and can be anything you want it to be. A date could be just a hangout between two people who want get to know each other.

  • no. you can ask them out and use the time out to get to know them xD i don't consider it a wayste of time to date them, cause it's up to you to have a good time if you end up clicking with them or not. at least you can practice and get better at dating this way.

  • Why would you go on a date if not to get to know the person? I don't know why people in my generation treat going on a date like a marriage proposal; it's just a few hours.

  • Ideally, yes. It will make the first date less awkward and give the relationship a better chance of working out.

  • I think that you need to get to know a person before you think about asking them out because you need to find some sort of common interests or common ground otherwise in the long term it will impact a relationship or friendship negatively
