It's a fact of life and long-term relationships that, despite your best intentions, you sometimes run out of things to talk about.
Between your finances, the kids, the house and the miserable winter weather, your conversations may feel more like a checklist than anything in the realm of thought-provoking.
According to research published in the Journal of Divorce & Remarriage, 53 per cent of couples polled cited a lack of communication as one of the most common reasons to break up. A lack of communication can make you feel disconnected from your partner and have a negative impact on your overall well-being.
And while it's not a guaranteed remedy for all, thousands of shoppers have cited the Love Lingual card game as a way to encourage "deep discussion between couples."
To learn why Amazon Canada reviewers say the conversation game is "perfect for couples who struggle with communicating," check out the details below.
Love Lingual: Card Game - Better Language for Better Love
Whether you've been coupled up for decades or just started dating, The Love Lingual card game is designed to bring you and your significant other closer than ever.
The game is comprised of 150 question cards divided into five categories: family, intimacy, couple, individual, and past & future. Each card comes with a question inspired by relationship psychologists and is designed to provoke meaningful and fun conversations.
Examples of questions include, "what is the one rule you have for yourself that you will never break?" And "how have you changed since we were first together?"
A thoughtful gift for Valentine's Day, anniversaries, and engagements, the card game comes backed by more than 5,300 five-star reviews on Amazon.
What people are saying
With more than 5,300 five-star reviews singing its praises, Amazon shoppers laud the Love Lingual card game as a "great conversation starter."
It's "great for honest conversations," writes one user. The five categories make sure you leave "no part of your [partner's] life unturned."
It's "perfect" for couples who "struggle with communication," says another shopper. It's a "fun, laid back way" to encourage "deep discussion between couples." The game allowed for us to dive into the more "intimate aspects of our personalities" and really get to know each other "beneath the surface."
When I saw this game, "I was skeptical," writes a third reviewer. How can a game "really help you communicate better?" However, my husband and I do a few cards at the end of every week, and it's "really nice." It's helped us to "open the door on new topics" and discuss things "we normally wouldn't talk about."
Despite thousands of five-star reviews, some reviewers caution Love Lingual is "definitely not for every couple" as "some questions are very frank."
It's "great" if you want to learn about a person in-depth, but not if you're trying to have a "light, fun evening," writes one shopper.
"To my dismay," many of the questions "are kind of depressing," according to another reviewer. "I mean, they are deep," but they also bring up "regrets and sad stuff."
Hailed by reviewers as a "great conversation starter," this relationship card game is a wonderful buy to have on hand before Valentine's Day. However, a handful of shoppers caution some of the questions can be rather heavy, something to keep in mind if you want a casual date night.
