Why create Let's talk cards?
We've created the card game-based Conversation-Starters for couples because love between two people needs to be nourished by a deep and ongoing dialogue that prevents a couple's life from drying up while falling prey to the thousand difficulties of daily life. Two people in love are talking to each other. They have a universe to discover, of questions to ask each other. Marriage and family life have to keep the depth and richness of the dialogue going through conversations with those we love. Too often, taken by the myriad of things to do, we stop talking or we talk only superficially of the groceries, appointments, deadlines, and rumors.
Let's talk! have been created by Associazione La Forma del Cuore to provide new stimuli to dialogue as a couple.
Let's talk! Procedures
There are three types of cards addressing growing levels of depth and intimacy as indicated by the number of hourglass symbols on the lower right hand corner of each card.
Cards displaying a single hourglass indicate relatively simple questions that can be addressed in the context of an evening with friends. Those with three hourglasses display more intimate questions that require a greater commitment to grow the union together as a couple. Those with two hourglasses are an intermediate of the other two types.
Chosen a card, read the question written on your card to your partner inviting him or her to respond. If you wish you can give your own response to the same card. Alternatively you can take turn asking and answering questions on successive cards. The game goes on as long as desired. Some topics, those with three hourglasses in particular, will be more challenging to address, and attempting to do so could be the beginning of deeper reflections and understanding.
