Path to true love via 36 questions

Ever wondered where the path to true love lies? We ll now we have the answer - and it's nothing to do with Jennifer Aniston or Ryan Reynolds. The way to make anyone fall in love with you is to ask them 36 questions, ranging from, "Would you like to be famous?" to, "How do you feel about your relationship with your mother?" and even, "When did you last cry in front of another person -or by yourself ?".

The questions, which are designed to foster intimacy by creating an atmosphere of mutual vulnerability , become increasingly probing, taking us beyond the limits of our everyday, sharing-thingswith-strangers-at-the-bus stop comfort barriers. The whole thing finishes with the participants staring into each other's eyes for four minutes.

Unsurprisingly, it's easy to exchange musings about the weather, but much more intimidating to swap stories about your "secret hunch about how you will die" or "the last time you sang to yourself -or to someone else" .

But if you're tempted to try, then persevere -for if you get through all 36, as psychologist Arthur Aron mooted in his original 1997 experiment, then you greatly enhance the probability of forging a lasting relationship with your partner.
