Guys and Compatibility

Does he think so too?

3. Sexual appetite

Whatever you do, do not touch on this on a first date. By "desexualizing" a conversation, you leave her wanting more. But at some point, you need to know whether or not you see eye to eye in the bedroom; nothing can kill a relationship faster than having one person feeling undesirable or dissatisfied.

How do you find out?
Be perceptive in the bedroom and in your initial physical experiences. Try to make the first move '- you'll notice how willing she is to go along. Start by gradually flirting every now and then, and observe how she reacts. You should also be able to take cues from comments she makes while watching movies and talking about other people, but the truth is, she could just be a wild girl trapped in an innocent body, and you might only find out once you're under the sheets.

2. Marriage

Once upon a time, people had little say when it came to who they were going to marry. Today this is no longer the case in most countries, but this leads to a new quandary: Should you get married in the first place, especially with divorce rates at 50%?

How do you find out?
The problem is, marriage is a topic that men prefer not to discuss, while it's unfairly assumed that marriage is every woman's desired end goal. True, many women eventually want to get married, but not all of them want to be wives right away. How do you know where she stands on the topic? Rely on hints when she discusses friends' weddings (or her parents' married life). An even better idea might be taking her to a wedding or two to see how she feels about them. And if she hurls into the crowd and pushes every guest to catch the bouquet, the answer will be unveiled.
