Ah, my favourite forum.
Just copying and pasting a survey by pinklilac from free minds org. Do use it
-Name? (Feel free to only put in your first name or profile name if you do not feel comfortable answering this)
*What are you interested in?*
-Are you interested in a man or a woman?
-What age/age range would you like that person to be?
-What types of qualities are you looking for in a potential partner? (ie, Are you interested in someone who knows how to cook? Do you want someone who is taller than you?) Any personality traits you are interested in?
-Do you want to have a career while you are married, or are you interested in being a stay-at-home mom/dad?
-How many children would you like to have, if at all?
-What are your religious beliefs?
-Do you consider religion to be an important part of your life?
-In terms of a spouse, are you open to differing religious beliefs? If so, to what degree? Or would you ideally like to be with someone who shares the same religious beliefs as you?
~Extra questions for someone who is interested~
(PLEASE NOTE: This is where you can include ANY question you want regarding religious beliefs. This may be extremely important to you if you want to know the other person's opinion about a certain topic. A very good example of this is if you do not believe women should wear the headdress/hijab, and someone you are interested in believes they should. Please think carefully about which questions and topics are important to you in order to get a better understanding of where a potential interest stands regarding them.)
-What are some of your personality traits? Are you funny? Mature? Adventurous? A good listener? Opinionated? Optimistic? Patient? Kind?
-What are some of your faults? (The reason why I included this is because your faults could complement someone's personality. For instance, if you don't tend to stand up for yourself, that could complement someone's personality trait of being encouraging)?
-Do you enjoy travelling? Would you rather go out or do you prefer spending time at home?
-Do you speak a different language?
-What is your cultural background? Do you believe that cultural/racial background matters if you are searching for a spouse, or are you open to inter-cultural/racial marriage?

-Least favorite movie genre?
-Any foods that you like?
-Any foods that you dislike?
-Where do you live? (Again, you can give as much detail as you'd like, or just not answer the question at all. Please remember however that location tends to be an important factor for people who are looking for someone to settle down with).
-Would you be willing to move in order to be with your spouse? How far? (i.e. to a nearby state, across the country, or to a different country?)

-Does your occupation require you to travel a lot? (This may be important if you want children)
-How happy are you in your occupation? Is it stressful, or do you love what you do? (Unhappiness and stress in a career could spill over into a marriage, which is why this question was included. Likewise, being happy in your career can reduce the amount of stress you feel, which could thus be better for a marriage.)
-What is your work schedule like? Do you work late hours? Only certain days in the week? (This could also be important if you have children)
-What are you majoring in?
-What are your career goals? Where would you like to see yourself (in terms of career or financially) years from now? (i.e. retired, working part-time, etc.)
-Do you make a fairly stable income? Enough to start a family?
-Is income important to you when looking for someone to marry?
-Do you own a house? A car? Do you believe it is important for someone to have these items before marriage? (Some people might view this to be a shallow question, while others may find it to be important. Therefore, you choose if you'd like to include it or not).

If you do not wish to answer any part of this question, then feel free to leave it out. However, please remember that others may find your opinion on these issues important.)

~Questions for potential interests~
-Are you willing to have pets in the house?
-Are you allergic to any animals?
-Describe your relationship with your family. Are you close to them? Is there a lot of tension? Were your parents divorced? Did a parent pass away? (You do not have to answer this if it is a sensitive topic. However, some may feel that seeing how your relationship is with your family is important in determining the importance you place on family.)
-Do you believe it is important to keep up good relations with family? Why or why not?
(Please remember that some people may find this important, whil others may not. If you believe that the following is a non-issue/something that does not matter to you when looking for a partner, then please state that in order to let others know.)
-Have you ever been in a relationship before?
-Have you ever been married before?
-If yes, do you have any children from a previous marriage?
-Do you believe that the above two questions are an important factor in deciding whether or not you would be interested in someone? For example, would you prefer to be with someone who has not ever been married, or is that not an issue for you?
(The reason why I included this topic is because people adapt their lifestyles to one another when being married. For instance, you may want someone who is interested in being healthy, as it might inspire you to be healthy as well. Or perhaps you have a health issue, such as diabetes or food allergies, which you want the other person to know so they can understand your diet and what you may or may not be able to eat.)
-Do you consider yourself to be a healthy person? Do you exercise? Eat healthy?
-Do you have any habits that are bad for your health (i.e. smoking, drinking, eating too much junk food, etc.)
-Do you have any illnesses that you would want a spouse to know? For instance, you may be diabetic, or you could be allergic to certain animals or foods.
-Would you be willing to be with someone who has an illness or a disability?
