36道愛情練習題 - 拉近我們的距離


36道愛情練習題 - 拉近我們的距離
紐約時報刊登一篇報導,描述一位女作家親身實驗社會心理學家 Arthur Aron 於 1997年發表研究報告,提出36道可以讓彼此關係更加緊密的題目,親自體驗後,真的能敞開心胸,拉進對方的心,而且問完最後還要含情脈脈對看四分鐘。

這36道題目分三個階段,由淺入深,彼此交叉提問回答,時間約 45 分到一個小時,提問對象有可能是你的朋友、家人或是心儀的對象。


36道題目穿插對人生幾個歷程的提問,對家庭、成長、友誼、愛情幾個關鍵時間點的看法,能互相熟悉對方的人生觀與價值想法,的確能進一步提升親密度,尤其是坦誠內心脆弱的一面,因為如哭泣、出糗這些情形你不說,任誰也難以挖出來的「秘密」,獲得交換彼此信任的鑰匙,一打開像是認真在心頭劃十字,暗指自己視對方為親密夥伴,「我會保密,不會對別人說溜嘴」一樣的關係。


36道題目你可以試著先自問自答,選擇愛上別人之前,先學會愛自己是非常重要的一件事。交往的關係前提不該是偽裝與委曲求全,而是即使未來不確定,你會相信這個人不離不棄,跟你一起面對。不見得國外的月亮比較圓,而是 36 Questions 在親密度量測的基準上有普遍共識,一問就知道對方認真還是虛偽,值得交往還是當普通朋友就好,不失為一種認識彼此的好方法。
