A bit corny but I would start a diary with your thoughts every day for the person. You can write a few lines or pages each day, just be sure to write. I think it would make for a nice gift to give them or maybe send a few days before you are to get back together - Dad

Are you saying it is impossible to know someone without moving in and sleeping together 3-4 times per week? If you don’t feel the person is marriable within the first 90 days and instead are trying to make it work, chances are you aren’t going to have one of the ‘10%’ marriages that function as soul mates. You don’t get used to your soul mate over time. They either are or they aren’t…and if you meet them, and I pray you do…this will become crystal clear. I’m not saying you can’t find a suitable person to get along with and marry and live somewhat happily ever after, but life is too short to settle or figure out over some long period of time. Soul mates know instantly. Promise. - Dad
