Questions about your intimate relationships

If you have a significant intimate relationship, some questions you may ask yourself are:

  • What do I want from this person and this intimate relationship?
  • What do I bring to this person and this intimate relationship?

When you think group-wise or system-wise about the people in an intimate relationship you are part of, it can help to reflect especially on the following:

  • The role(s) the people play
  • The identity or identities the people bring into the intimate relationship
  • The selves of the people involved: “who am I in this intimate relationship?”

Simple and short. Just a few ideas. Powerful, in my opinion.
