5 top Questions to ask your significant other
How well do you really know your partner, children or best friend? Isn’t it amazing how we can spend years with someone and yet not really know how they feel about us and vice versa. Connecting with the special people in your life helps you feel happy, fulfilled and loved!
When he was just 7, I typed up series of questions to ask my son to understand what was important to him (I completed them for him also). His answer to the final question is what I was really mining for. I told him we were going to play a game and he was sold!
These are the questions (actually statements that you want them to complete):
- Something I love about you is:
- Something I think you’re good at:
- You make me laugh when:
- Something you do for me that I like:
- Something I’d like you to do more of for me:
To get the most benefit, sit across from each other, with this list in front of each of you. Spend a little time on each one before writing down the answer, and then share the responses. I’m sure you will find something surprising; heart warming and funny amongst the other person’s answers.
I still have the original handwritten responses by my son and they still bring a smile to my face and warmth to my heart!
I’ve found this technique leads to a deeper level of communication and honesty – be prepared for that, and have fun along the way!
