Fun Questions to Ask Your Partner
You don’t have to ask profound philosophical questions to strengthen your bond with your partner.
Sometimes asking some quirky questions can be as effective as intimate questions.
They show you a side of your partner that you were never privy to before.

Here is our list of some of the most amusing questions to ask your partner.
1. What is one movie you wish was real life, in which you were the protagonist?
