CoupleDumb started out with a simple goal; we believed that people could have healthy, loving relationships if they just stopped doing certain ‘dumb’ things. We continue to believe this and apparently, we are not the only ones. Twoofus.org is also committed to this proposal. They are providing their readers a library of videos and articles, all related to relating, so that we can change the conversation of relationships. This is something more that just tips on keeping your relationship fresh.
One of the series features ‘Conversation Parties’. The idea, which is discussed in Hill Harper’s ‘The Conversation: How Black Men and Women Can Build Loving, Trusting Relationships’, is creating events where people can discuss important issues. When we say important, we mean issues that further humanity and not politics, the economy or the weather. Hill Harper, who plays Hawkes on CSI New York, is encouraging people to start discussing things that matter to all of us. He invites his guests to anonymously write down questions that they have about the opposite sex or relationships in general. During the party, the questions are pulled out of a hat and read aloud. The conversation begins in a neutral environment where everyone can participate and learn. The concept is brilliant in its simplicity.
So, we were wondering, if we invited you over, what questions would you place in the hat? For example, ‘What do men really think of women who will sleep with them on the first date?’ Or perhaps, ‘What is the worst thing your partner can do to you?’ CoupleDumb encourages everyone to go out and start having Conversation Parties. The more conversations we have the more we can break down the barriers between fear and intimacy. Let’s start talking! Go ahead and like them on Facebook.
