:( Dear Psychology Today: Thank you for this Facebook link, probably aimed at women between the age of 30-45, but I think we both know how completely irritated my husband (or any man) would be if I asked him any single one of these questions.
So it didn't work for me and now I feel like we're doomed.
These questions only take about 45 minutes to discuss—and they almost always make two people feel better about each other and want to see each other again, according to social psychology researcher Arthur Aron of the Interpersonal Relationships Lab at Stony Brook University in New York, who published his results in "The Experimental Generation of Interpersonal Closeness" in (1997). Before making a phone call, do you ever rehearse what you're going to say? Now, I'm no psychologist, but as an experienced wife and nagger, I can tell you that every single item on this list would elicit the "yes dear, whatever you think" response, followed by the "I have to go to the bathroom" response, in as little as three minutes, and that within the hour, we'd probably be arguing at the top of our lungs. thanks anyway, and good luck with your facebook campaign!
If one of you likes working hard while the other person lives for the moment, it is bound to leave one of you with a few moments of repressed anger.
Tip #3: Match the question you ask to the current situation you’re in.
For example, if you’re on a first date, don’t ask #21 What Makes You Cry?
I figure that asking each other questions and staring into each other’s eyes is far less-expensive than relationship counseling and it could give you a major closeness booster so it could be worth a shot, right?
I’ve rounded up A TON (1,831) of questions for you to ask your partner (not all at once. I’ve been trying to not assume I know how Aaron is going to answer because it’s so easy to do that after you’ve been with someone for awhile.
