Whether you’re newly dating or married, learning new things about your partner is exciting and can help you connect. Hearing about the weird eating quirks, the childhood stories, finding out that You share favorite things in common… These all make up some of the most exciting times.
These discoveries can help you bond and they’re stepping stones for deeper conversations that can help you understand one another better.
Here are a few light-hearted questions and what they can help you learn about your partner.
“What’s your favorite childhood memory?”
This question will give you a sense of your partner’s happy place & give you insight into their past and how they grew up.
“What are your top bucket list items?”
This can reveal their goals and visions, without you having to ask the standard interview question we all hear; “Where do you see yourself in 10 years.” It’s also a fun, natural way to find out what your partner is currently into and what he/she would like to improve on in the future.
“What is a good decision that you made or wanted to make that many people were against?”
Grab some popcorn because this is your chance to hear a good story about your partner. It will reveal a lot about their decision-making skills and their thought process in a difficult situation. You’ll see what types of things are important to them. It also shows you their level of courageousness, whether they did what they desired or listened to others around them.
Milk Chocolate or Dark Chocolate?
I’ve noticed that many people who prefer dark chocolate tend to be more adventurous when it comes to food. They tend to enjoy more ethnic foods and are willing to try new dishes, while milk chocolate lovers are a bit safer in their food preferences. And there’s nothing wrong with that. There are some people who enjoy it all. This question can reveal whether your partner likes salty, sweet or bitter tastes, and also opens up the conversation for what type of foods they would be willing to try in the future.
