About Us

Nobody ever said life was easy. Well, isn’t that the truth.

From getting your Ph.D. to planning a first date and everything in between, the course of your life is set by the decisions you make – big and small alike. At AskThisWhen, we believe you can’t make an informed decision until you ask the right questions. That’s where we come in.

AskThisWhen isn’t your typical question and answer site. Rather than allowing just anyone to provide answers, we rely on something we call “social authority” to help establish the most relevant questions to ask in a given situation. Our aim is to help you come to the best decision for you.

Here’s how it works:

  1. First, we pick a topic to explore.
  2. Then, our panel of vetted experts does extensive research and comes back with a series of questions a person is likely to have when faced with that situation.
  3. Our vibrant user community then votes on which questions are the most relevant.

By guiding you with the right questions to ask, we’ll help you understand your options and gain the confidence to proceed.

The best part? AskThisWhen is completely free to use. You can browse through our topics and search for situations you might be currently faced with.
