You’ve probably heard of question games for couples. Most of the couples game questions out there were designed to help people that are on their first date. Or at least that don’t know each other very well.
But I got to thinking…
What about couples that have been together for awhile? Couples that think they’ve talked about everything under the sun?
Unfortunately, couples that have a long term relationship usually get to a point where their conversations go stale. Become boring. Sound like the same-old-same-old.
You know what I’m talking about, right?
Do you ever sit with your partner in awkward silence because you can’t think of anything new to talk about?
Or worse, do you and your spouse have the same, mundane conversation over and over, like a broken record?
This weekend I was out to dinner with my partner and we were talking up a blue streak. But the couple at the table next to us…they were just sitting there in silence.
He was looking at god-knows-what on his i-phone until their food arrived. And she just appeared to be supremely uncomfortable, lonely, and bored. I could tell that it was definitely not their first date.
I thought to myself — I wish I had a list of questions to hand them. So they could connect and delight in one another’s company. And have fun.
That’s what prompted me to write this blog.
The couple from the restaurant will probably never see this article. But at least you can learn how to save your marriage from boredom with this question game for couples. Even if you’ve been together for a long time.
