Lesson 22: 200 Questions To Ask Your Partner
200 QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR PARTNER
Below is a list of 200 questions which you are welcome to share with your partner.
These questions present an opportunity for you to not only learn more about yourself (because you are obviously going to take a peek at them first) but also more about others.
If you like you can test yourself to see if you are a smarty-pants who knows her partner inside out.
I’m guessing there will be a few questions from the list that are going to stump you.
And that’s the point.
These questions are here to make both you and your partner think.
Use them at your own discretion and be prepared for a few surprises. I know I experienced some…
