Relationship Booster #1
This is one of my favorite bonding games to play. It can be played anytime, anywhere, and for any length of time. There are really no rules (you can ask more or less than twenty questions - the 'twenty' is just to add length to the name), except that you have to take turns asking and answering questions about each other. They can be as simple as "What is your favorite color?" to something a little more difficult. "Where do you see yourself in five years (or ten or twenty)?" Or you can ask your significant other questions about yourself, to find out how much s/he knows about you!
Examples of questions to ask - Boost your relationship by taking turns asking and answering various questions
- Where is your ultimate vacation located?
- Who is your favorite celebrity?
- Pop quiz: What is MY middle name?
- Is there anything you regret not doing until it was too late?
- How many siblings do you have?
- What is MY biggest pet peeve?
- What is your favorite song of all time?
The Two of Us
Relationship Booster #2
You may have played something similar as a kid. It's pretty simple; you each take turns adding a word to the sentence. Each time it is your turn to add a word, you have to say the entire sentence before tacking your new word onto the end. Another way you can play is to take turns saying an entire sentence (which would not have to be repeated). Making up a story together is a fun way to communicate with your significant other, and it gives you an opportunity to be silly and to goof off together.
Truth or Dare
Relationship Booster #3
I'm sure you remember Truth or Dare from your childhood. Well, this is Truth or Dare for Couples! If you have never played this bonding activity, here's how. You and your partner will both take turns asking, "Truth or Dare?" and the other will reply with either "truth" or "dare". If he chooses "truth", you will ask him a question, which he will have to answer truthfully. If he chooses "dare", you need to come up with a daring task for him to do. Got it?
