Some sample questions to build your love map of your partner include:

- How are you feeling about your life at the moment?

- What has been the best thing that has happened to you this year?

- If you could have three wishes, what would they be?

- What is one goal or dream you have for the future?

During your love map time, ask your partner as many questions as you can about their life.
