You still have some wiggle room to have a say in the wedding planning, but you may want to start thinking of some questions to ask your partner.
The “summer of love” in 1967 coincided with the development of these concerns by a social psychologist.
Active listening and mutual vulnerability—the willingness to give yourself up to and receive another—may foster empathy, trust, and warmth, even if no single question can guarantee love and connection.
Even if they don’t lead to love or you’re already in love, probing questions can teach you a lot about your spouse, friends, and self by revealing their ideals, qualities, anxieties, and personal history.
As a result, we devised our own set of probing questions to pose to your significant other, close friends, or even yourself if you’re feeling really curious. It doesn’t matter if you’re on a long vehicle ride with a loved one or you just want to get to know someone better, you may use this technique. If you wish to use these questions as a springboard for self-discovery, be sure to pose them to your significant other.
