Get To Know Your Mate!!

Sometimes, we assume that we know our mates better than we really do. Do you know their long-term dreams, pet peeves, favorite color, dessert, etc?  Now, don't get me wrong, just like you, I too think that I know my boyfriend in and out.  However, I'm sure there's always going to be something to learn.

If you are an avid reader of A Book of 40, you know by now that 40 is very significant in my life. If you're  a new reader, well you're about to get tuned in to this. Ever so often I go through what I call Cycles of 40, where I commit to doing something for 40 days, 40 weeks, 40 times, etc. It makes me strengthen my COMMITMENT (Love Biggie #3) skills, while also challenging myself in life.

It's time for a new Cycle of 40, "Get To Know Your Mate". I challenge you and myself to find out 40 things that you didn't know about your mate and also give them the opportunity to do the same to you. You'll be surprised at the interesting things you'll find out. Not only does this cycle get you more in tune with them, but it will also strengthen your COMMUNICATION (Love Biggie #4) skills with your partner.

Here are some ways to ask and find these 40 interesting facts:
  • Email the questions to your mate
  • Ask the questions on IM while Skyping
  • Ask the questions while on Google Talk
  • Ask the questions face-to-face
By now, you probably think this is a crazy request, but try it out and let me know if you still feel that way when you're done. I'm going to take this challenge as well.

Until our next Cycle of 40,


  1. Now this is going to be good. I'm going to do my 40 today...now the challenge is going to be getting my husband to come up with 40 questions of his own. What do you recommend? Should I come up with 40 questions and we both answer them or should we both come up with 20 questions each?

  2. If he is a little hesitant at first, then I suggest giving him your questions to ask you, but if he is all for this challenge right away, then I suggest he come up with his own exciting questions for you :) Let us know how it goes!!
