We all crave being closer to the ones we love.

Research shows that intimacy is much more than a psychological need but is based in our biology. From studies that recognize the need for infants to be held and touched, the need for connection never goes away.

Sometimes you don’t have the words to step into courageous conversations.

With that said, here are a few questions that can help you start intimate and authentic conversations:

  1. How are you, really?
  2. What would you do if you knew you were guaranteed success?
  3. Who thinks you’re beautiful when you wake up in the morning?
  4. What would your life be like if were the best in the world at what you do?
  5. Are you finding your dream job or business, or are you creating it?
  6. If there was a solution to one problem, what would you be doing right now?
  7. When was the last time you did something for the first time?
  8. What is your favorite memory and why?
  9. What if there was ____ that could ____?
  10. What simple thing brings you the most joy?
  11. What is your favorite cause in the world, and why?
  12. What was the hardest thing you ever had to forgive?

Have fun, explore and add your own deep questions. Here’s to supporting you in becoming more vulnerable and loving in your relationships.

Our approach is unique. Our mission is to impact children’s access to grow, learn and play. Rather than focus on the children directly, we impact their environment through those who touch their lives on a daily basis: such as probation officers, teachers, parents, and community leaders. We do this through free educational resources, leadership training such as our progressive and popular tool “Accepting the Apology You’ll Never Receive,” and through our social reach of millions across the globe.
