Help to communicate

I’ll start by saying, I grew up in a family where communicating was not commonplace (especially feelings). I’ve been married for almost 12 years after marrying young. Needless to say we had our share of arguments. I like these cards. They help find ways to communicate, especially in moments when you don’t really know how. There are a lot of great random ways to bring you closer to your significant other. I especially like the open ended questions. I wish there were more conversation starters, similar to writing prompts. The topics really are relevant.

In a time where electronics have taken over our lives, I would like to see a patch allowing me to share a card rather than taking a screenshot. This is minor and not necessary. Great app for relationships!!

Helpful practical tool to build relationship

Sometimes you just need a cue card to move you in a direction to help deepen the connection you both want. Gottman is regarded as one of (if not the most) well-researched marriage expert(s). The decks are simple in concept (sex questions, building love maps, expressing needs, communicating emotions, etc.), which can make it seem simplistic on the surface, but this is how connection is built, in the small moments of turning towards one another. I highly recommend you uses these with your partner for enriching your communication and connectedness. You won’t regret it.

Big fan of Gottman

Love this app. My fiancé calls this the talking game and it’s one of our favorite conversations starters. I’m embarking on my second marriage and I will be forever grateful to Gottman for helping me put words to what went wrong in my former 23 years long relationship/marriage. I realized I didn’t trust him. This card deck will help build a love map and trust with your partner. I’ve already suggested it to probably 10 friends. Thank you for your ongoing and inspirational work on behalf of couples!
