8 Uncomfortable Questions To Ask Your Partner To Take Your Relationship To The Next Level

Do you and your partner want to deepen your connection in your relationship?

Asking the right questions is extremely crucial as it invites you both to be open and vulnerable with each other, which strengthens the emotional intimacy of your relationship.

Before you have this conversation with your partner though, I want to encourage you to remember two things:
