Blog in English Weekend Reads
This  New York Times article by Mandy Len Carton talks about a study which claims that 36 questions can lead to romantic love. Mandy describes that the experiment, in which two strangers ask and answer 36 questions of varying degrees of intimacy, led to two participants falling in love and marrying six months later. She then talks about doing the experiment herself with an acquaintance and how it has led to a relationship.
Here are some things for you to think about;
What does it take to fall in love? Is it possible to fall in love with someone in 90 minutes? Or is it something which requires a lot more time? Do you think it is possible to fabricate a lasting relationship in the 90 minutes it takes to complete the experiment?
Is this something you’d be willing to try? Would you feel comfortable telling a stranger personal information about yourself?
When it was first published, Mandy’s article went viral. Why do you think this happened? Nowadays especially, why are people so interested in shortcuts to relationships? Does this have something to do with modern living?
We’d love to hear what you think! Comment and share to join the conversation! Have a great weekend!
