One of the most important aspects of creating a healthy relationship is communication. While most of us know this to be true, sometimes we don't take the time to REALLY get to know our other halves as the days, months, and years go by.
It's so easy to assume we know each other, but we're always evolving and growing. We must not forget that the thoughts that live within our lovers' minds are precious and valuable.
The following are some deep conversation starters that will help you grow greater understanding with your lover. For you to benefit from them, please set aside at least 30 minutes tonight and take turns answering at least 5 of them. If you get super adventurous, try answering them all. Take all night if you have to!
There are no right or wrong answers to any of these questions. It's all about being truthful, raw, and real.
