Experiment after the lockdown

Am a lover of love, romantic fondness is what am specifically meaning, it’s bold for a man to say that openly because frankly it make me an open book and if someone can read you then in most cases you are not safe.

Am a lover of science even if I didn’t take it up in school, by science I mean things like telepathy and time travel. I recently discovered all humans time travel almost every day when we look at the sun we are actually seeing things in the past no one on earth can see the sun in real time, the light takes time to reach us so time travel is possible.

Anyway I discovered through a podcast called modern love about a way science and falling in love can be worked out by anyone so long as you can read. We can fall in love with our lovers, friends or strangers in this experiment I want you to try out after this bloody lockdown.
It was done started by Mandy Len Catron. Who is a writer living and working in Vancouver, BC. She teaches English and Creative Writing at the University of British Columbia. She tweets @LenMandy. She came up with these phenomenal 36 questions that I want to share with you.

Since we all very eager to meet our, friends, siblings, lovers, parents and even strangers. After all we long for human connection we could try the questions out.

Set I
1. Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest?

2. Would you like to be famous? In what way?

3. Before making a telephone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say? Why?

4. What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?

5. When did you last sing to yourself? To someone else?

6. If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year-old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want?

7. Do you have a secret hunch about how you will die?

8. Name three things you and your partner appear to have in common.

9. For what in your life do you feel most grateful?

10. If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be?

11. Take four minutes and tell your partner your life story in as much detail as possible.

12. If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be?

Set II
13. If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about yourself, your life, the future or anything else, what would you want to know?

14. Is there something that you’ve dreamed of doing for a long time? Why haven’t you done it?

15. What is the greatest accomplishment of your life?

16. What do you value most in a friendship?

17. What is your most treasured memory?

18. What is your most terrible memory?

19. If you knew that in one year you would die suddenly, would you change anything about the way you are now living? Why?

20. What does friendship mean to you?

21. What roles do love and affection play in your life?

22. Alternate sharing something you consider a positive characteristic of your partner. Share a total of five items.

23. How close and warm is your family? Do you feel your childhood was happier than most other people’s?

24. How do you feel about your relationship with your mother?


25. Make three true “we” statements each. For instance, “We are both in this room feeling … “

26. Complete this sentence: “I wish I had someone with whom I could share … “

27. If you were going to become a close friend with your partner, please share what would be important for him or her to know.

28. Tell your partner what you like about them; be very honest this time, saying things that you might not say to someone you’ve just met.

29. Share with your partner an embarrassing moment in your life.

30. When did you last cry in front of another person? By yourself?

31. Tell your partner something that you like about them already.

32. What, if anything, is too serious to be joked about?

33. If you were to die this evening with no opportunity to communicate with anyone, what would you most regret not having told someone? Why haven’t you told them yet?

34. Your house, containing everything you own, catches fire. After saving your loved ones and pets, you have time to safely make a final dash to save any one item. What would it be? Why?

35. Of all the people in your family, whose death would you find most disturbing? Why?

36. Share a personal problem and ask your partner’s advice on how he or she might handle it. Also, ask your partner to reflect back to you how you seem to be feeling about the problem you have chosen.

So let’s experiment and see where this ends, after all, who doesn’t deserve to be loved. I want to read in the future the results of the experiment. Soon am doing a blog about my own experiment.

  1. I like the questions and the Modern love podcast is fire always pushing boundaries on ideas of love, your post reminded me of another conversation I heard on another podcast, people were discussing whether love and intimacy can be manufactured? Some of the questions were similar. Thanks for sharing.
