Getting To Know Each Other Better

Our DIL Kristi (the one carrying our twin grandchildren) mentioned during their holiday visit to us that she and our son Brian bought a book with questions for couples and they use it to get to know each other better.

My Beloved and I liked the idea and found a book called “365 Questions for Couples” by Michael J. Beck. We took it on our Date Night last week and asked each other questions from it over part of dinner.

We asked each other perhaps 5 questions each–the same questions, and took turns answering them. After 33 years of marriage we know each other quite well, so we were surprised at how much we learned from the answers to those five questions. (That’s how I learned how much she learned from me .

We found the experience to be informative, interesting, and entertaining, and plan to do it again soon.

    What a brilliant idea! – that sounds like fun. Thanks for sharing

  2. What a great idea! Now I just have to go out and find a man and then I can bombard him with questions LOL! Just a little joke, I think would work well with our parents and children and all relationships.

  3. I love this idea! I’ve done it in the past to get to know someone (a potential partner) better. Actually it’s part of my standard dating ritual ;-). It’s a wonderful way to get to know people better – quickly.
