50 Questions To Really Get To Know Your Other Half

In my personal opinion, the age of technology is killing face to face conversation and teaching us that celebrity catchphrases, half-hearted one word conversations and snapchats are the way to communicate with others.

We don't write letters anymore, cards are a rarity unless it's an occasion like a birthday and too many times I see friends, families and couples out for a meal/in public just staring down at their phones constantly or taking pictures instead of talking to one another and making memories!

And on occasion when I do hear people discussing their relationships with others, all I hear is about how 'fit' they are or about their new car and how they've argued about him/her liking someone's Insta pics. It makes me wonder sometimes just how much people get to know one another these days... and whether connections go deeper than just looks and physical attraction.

I personally love getting to know someone and exploring their mind to find out what makes them truly happy, what their hopes and dreams are and what challenges they may have faced throughout their life. I think it really allows you to see a person's true authentic self- if they're telling the truth of course but I like to think that when talking about certain topics, facial expressions say everything.

I managed to find a list of questions that I thought was perfect for getting to know someone and I think that if you can't answer a single one of these about your significant other then you need to get to know them! I hope everyone can take something from going through these with their loved one, I also found it insightful to think of my answers for each of these and I learnt a lot about myself in the process too.
