You also place a great deal of emphasis on honesty, and you’re able to express your true feelings to your partner, even when it comes to difficult issues.
Importantly, by being straightforward with your partner, you can work together to come up with compromises, and by doing so, the your connection will be that much stronger.
Arthur Aron, Rich Slatcher and Keith Welker, were designed for existing couples to help reignite the flame of a longstanding relationship.
"We wanted to develop a procedure that would let us, in 45 minutes, in a lab setting, take any two people and get them close," Aron told TODAY of his list, which includes questions like "Would you like to be famous? " and "When did you last cry in front of another person?
" "At the end of 45 minutes, you feel as close to this person, almost as the closest person in your life," Aron says.
But what about all those couples who are looking to add a little spark to a relationship they're already in?

In the future, you and your partner should make a commitment to be more honest and present in the moment.
Even if it feels unnatural to be so open and vulnerable with someone else, it’s the only way to truly get to know someone and build a real connection."When you do things that are novel and challenging, or anything that's a lot of sharing with your partner, that can create passionate love," he says. We should not skip any and all four of us should answer each question before we go on to the next. We should not rush through the questions, but each of us answer each question at a normal, conversational pace.And we should take turns in who answers each question first. We probably won’t get even close to doing all 12 questions in each set, and that's perfectly OK.While it’s evident that you understand the importance of honesty, you sometimes feel compelled to hold back the full truth.However, you shouldn’t be afraid to tell your partner how you’re actually feeling.Aron developed yet another set of questions designed to possibly reignite the flame.
