Today’s “task” requires paper, a pen and total honesty. This “task” is all about getting to know each other, and yourself, better. You may feel vulnerable but letting your partner in, is the only way to have a close, fulfilling relationship.
I found a 60 page questionnaire online at lovepanky.com. They designed it with new couples in mind, to measure your level of compatibility with each other but it is also great for couples who have been together for a long time because it asks questions you may not have discussed or may not have even thought of before. Even if you know the title of your partner’s favourite book, you may not know why s/he prefers that over all other literary masterpieces. I have answered all 60 questions and I enjoyed doing it but don’t worry, today’s task is not to answer all 60.
Here are five questions from the 60 for you and your partner to answer. Answer them without any influence from your partner. Write your answers down on a piece of paper. Then read your answers to each other and have a discussion. Answer all 60 if you would like. You have the link.
