I’m a huge romantic, which you might think means I spend a lot of time daydreaming about love, marriage, and babies. This is true, but even more than that it means I have an intentional relationship in which we always focus on and talk about and the health and growth of our relationship. That’s why I created this relationship building activity. It’s important to communicate about your relationship all of the time, but it’s also important to set aside specific times to check in with each other about your relationship.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to reflect on your relationship and focus on how you want it to grow over the next year. Get excited to cozy up with your partner and do this activity!
How to play:
I recommend doing this activity fishbowl style for extra fun points. Print the questions, then cut them out and throw them into a bowl/box/chamber pot. Then, take turns pulling them out and asking them to each other. This takes some of the pressure off, because you will switch who answers each question first. Once the first person answers, the second person should give their answer as well.

I recently sat my long-suffering boyfriend down to do this “game” because he loves me enough to willingly agree to these kinds of relationship-building activities. It was such a sweet, intimate time of reflecting on where we thrived, where we struggled, and what we want our future to look like. It also allowed us to talk about things we hadn’t brought up before or hadn’t thought to consider before. There is no better feeling than having a heart-to-heart with your person!
If you’re as sappy and into relationship-building activities as I am, download the questions and have fun! I hope this game blesses your relationship 🙂
