David and I went out for our weekly date night a few nights ago at one of our date and partner vegan bars in Portland. Whenever we go out for date night, we make an intentional choice to put our phones in the middle of the table and try to engage each other in thought provoking, honest, deep… and often hilarious conversation. If you flash back 3 years and found us out on a date night, you would probably see a lot of arguing, making small talk, or us being glued to our phones.
Not exactly romantic… Eventually, we realized that we needed to invoke a better, deeper form of conversation if we wanted to grow closer. Because of how much this practice has improved our marriage, we decided to compile a list of our favorite questions from the last year for you to ask your partner during date night.
. If you could relive a year in your life, what age would you choose?
What is your favorite memory of us dating? If you could write a note to your younger self, what would you say in ONLY 3 words? What's another career that you think you'd love? What was your favorite date you've ever had with me? What do you attribute the biggest successes in your life to?
How about your largest failures? In what ways are we the same? In what ways are we different?
Benefitting from past experiences
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? If someone you loved was killed in front of you, but someone created a copy of them that was perfect right down to the atomic level, would they be the same person and would you love them just as much?
In what ways have I changed since we first met? Is there anything Date and partner can do to show you love better? Who is one person in your life that you have a lot of respect date and partner If you had one mantra to live by, what would it be? What is your favorite thing that I do in bed? If you could wake up tomorrow having gained one quality or ability, what would it be? Your house, containing everything you own, catches fire. After saving your loved ones and pets, you have time to safely make a final dash to save any one item.
