Questions to Spark Intimacy in Your Relationship
Create a Fun Space
Before you do this, always make sure that you’re already in a good mood. Don’t start this off if you’re angry, feeling jealous or envious or any kind of those feelings. This is all for fun, to enjoy the other person more and to build a stronger relationship. It’s not something to make you go to bed angry. Always start off in a good place and keep that good space up. If you start to not feel that way about the experience, drop it and move on.
Have a Loving Heart Without Judgment
Having a loving heart and not being judgmental is the key to building intimacy. It’s important to support and hear your partner in a non-judgmental way. Before you even start to ask each other deep questions, recognize that their responses will depend on where they are in life and what they are experiencing this season. Notice that this isn’t an opportunity for them to take a stab at you and instead open up my heart to allow them to get vulnerable with you.
Relax and Get Past the Surface Level Questions
Sometimes, it takes a little time to get into discussions and for the walls to come down. It’s important to be patient and give each other time to process and express. Even a quick conversation can provide a quick, microwave-style answer, but deep conversations take time, and the answers may not come out on the same day. Taking the time to relax and open up with your partner truly can help you build intimacy and discover new things about each other.
Remember There’s Always Something New to Learn
Even if you’ve been together for a long time, there are still new things to discover about your partner. Just because you’ve asked your partner similar questions or the past or had conversations about something years ago doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be discussed again. People are always evolving and changing based on new situations they experience.

Deep down, we’re all manifesters.
And manifesting makes life exciting. The idea that we can take a thought in our mind and focus on it enough to translate it into something in our reality is powerful.
But manifesting isn’t always straight forward. Nor is it easy.
In order to bring the big things into our lives, we have to become vulnerable enough to deal with the parts of ourselves we hide. We have to tear down the walls we’ve built around our hearts.
We have to let go of what we’ve known and what’s happened to us. We have to change our story.
In order for us to make radical change, we have to call in something bigger than where we currently are.
