"Discovering" Your Partner
What is your favorite childhood memory?
We are ready to rock and roll with this month's topic!
It's a brand new month, and you know what that means! A new month of date ideas and thought-provoking relationship content! Can we get a whoop whoop?!
*feel free to let out a whoop whoop now...
This month we are going to focus on what we call discovery. You'll just have to keep scrolling to see what that means!
WEEK ONE: DISCOVERING YOUR PARTNER
You may have seen us talk about this before, but throughout September, we will be focusing on what we call discovery. Very simply put, discovery occurs when you learn something new about your partner or your relationship.
Think about the first time you hung out with your partner. You got to know them, learned about their favorite foods or types of music.
Think about the first few conversations with your partner. You got to know their personalities, their hobbies, and interests, maybe even their fears.
That is all discovery. The fantastic thing about discovery is not only the fact that you are learning more about each other, but you are also growing closer together. You are building trust, sharing laughs, and opening up to one another. You are building intimacy and creating experiences that will help shape your relationship in the future.
Here's the tricky part, though. The longer you are together, the less discovery there tends to be. By the time we are ten years into our relationship, we think we know everything about each other. There SEEMS to be no more discovery left. Sometimes this can lead to monotony and boredom.
Well...what if we told you that there is always something new to learn about your partner.
Seem crazy? Well, we are going to spend the next month proving it to you!
Each week, we are going to take a little different approach to discovery. But we do have one overarching challenge for you. Every day this month, we want you to learn one new thing about your partner. That's it! Just one new thing. And don't worry, we are going to be here to help!
WHEN I WAS JUST A KID
WHAT TO DO:
This week, we are going all the way back to when you both were just little ones! You may have to do a little detective work, but see if you can find out one new fact about your partner from when they were kids that you didn't know before. Every night before bed, ask a few questions to your partner to see if you can find out something new! Here are a few examples you can use:
What was your favorite candy as a child?
What is the first memory you have as a kid, and how old were you?
Did you have a favorite toy, blanket, or stuffed animal that you carried around everywhere?
What foods did you absolutely hate as a kid?
What was your favorite cartoon show?
Who was your best friend in elementary school? What was their name and how did you meet?
Date Night Ideas
What was your favorite toy as a kid?
This month, we are focusing on discovery or continuously learning something new about your partner. Even after decades together, there is always something to learn about your significant other. With every one of our date night ideas this month, we will be challenging you to find out something new about your partner! So grab your Indiana Jones hat… it's time for discovery!
This week's ideas are all about learning something about your partner's past. Even something as simple as their favorite toy growing up or their favorite food as a kid can help bring you both closer together. So, let's get ready for some nostalgia with this week's date night ideas!
