I recently entered a relationship and I yearn to know everything about him. We spend hours talking on the phone, texting each other random questions, and FaceTiming each night. There is something that just feels right. We both feel like we can tell each other everything without fear of judgment. 

That's how a relationship is meant to be when you can talk about anything without being scared of their reaction. And the more we are together, the more information we start volunteering with each other. 

This is when your significant other becomes your best friend and more because they know your deepest, darkest feelings and emotions as well as everything you have done in life. 

Knowing these things about your partner brings depth to your relationship. But it's also important to make sure you are sharing with them the same amount of information. Because if they freely discuss anything with you, that means you mean a lot to them, and they should have the same respect given to them in return by your own willingness to explore your compatibility and to really see where you could go together as a couple. 

But it all relies on you opening up to each other and talking. 

So here are 115 questions you should be able to answer about your partner after you have known each other for a while.
