How long does it take to really 'know' someone?
It really depends on how much you want to know. For some just knowing the person is honest, loyal and secure is enough. Others may have a need for much more information. If you are going to enter into a serious relationship, it is ALWAYS better to have more information. This will hopefully avoid being startled when someone else mentions some "history" of your partner. Good surprises are okay, but most often information from that person's past that they chose not to share with you can be very detrimental to the relationship. Do your Due Diligence before proceeding.
