In the day to day of our relationships, a lot of stuff can get swept under the rug. Combine that with the fact that a lot of partners don’t really get to know each other on a deep level at the beginning of their relationships (or at any point) and you could be highly prone to emotionally stepping on your partner’s toes without knowing it.
I recommend asking some of the following questions once every few months, and others on a weekly basis.
For best results, clear all distractions from your environment. Turn off your phones, close the laptops, and switch off the TV.
