🔥 2019 Relationship Questionnaire — Public
Burning Man is notorious for destroying relationships. Any cracks in a relationship often get exacerbated to extreme degrees due to the combination of dehydration, environmental stress, close living conditions, exciting things happening all around, and differing expectations. 

This questionnaire is meant to help couples have the important conversations about what experiences they desire (alone and shared) while on the Playa. And to easily discuss what boundaries are important not to cross.

This was inspired by my desire to have better and more open communication with my partner before heading to the Playa. I read a lot of articles and also listened to a number of Podcasts to create this list.

💫 Vision for your time on the Playa:

Imagine you’re in the car, departing BRC at the end of the burn, describe in vivid detail (using past tense) what your experience was like, how you felt, and what made it incredible for you.

To rediscover who I am inside… be naked more often… to spend time with friends
