Asking your partner open-ended questions on a regular basis helps build a stronger friendship between the two of you by creating a space for you to learn about your partner’s internal world. Couples learn a wealth of information about each other during their first couple of months of being together. Do you remember that time? Re-create this with your partner and give your relationship an energy boost.
Take turns asking your partner these questions and LISTEN to what your partner has to say. Remember to be supportive and empathetic. Have fun!
