With the winter season upon us, folks here in Michigan are getting cabin fever and have the "bunker mentality" going on right about now. With so much snow and bad weather, people have been cooped up inside waiting for the weather to break.
Today is a different day though. It's Valentine's Day.
It's where many couples decide to "go out" and "have a date night". We happen to be one of the couples that will go out tonight and enjoy time with each other.
Have you ever considered how you can make a date "great", not just good?
I know I am constantly thinking about how to take my relationship with my wife to the next level.
Then it hit me. The time we spend with our significant other is not always based on something we are "doing", but regardless of what we are doing, we are always talking.
So the question becomes, how can I make our conversation better?
The Answer: Ask better questions!
So, to help you guys out there who need a plan ahead of time or simply want a reference sheet to grab a few ideas from, here is a list of great questions to ask your spouse tonight while on your Valentine's Day date.
