relationship journal promptsI love to ask questions. What can I say, I’m a questioner. When it comes to asking questions, the deeper the better. Our answers are always interesting, thought-provoking, or fun to look back on. In this post, I want to propose 70 relationship journal prompts to get you thinking about your romantic relationships, past, present, and future.

The way to get the most out of these relationship journal quotes, is to write your answers down in a journal. If that doesn’t work for you, you could think about them in your head, or perhaps talk to a trusted friend about them. If you do use a journal, make sure that it’s private for your eyes only, that way you will be a lot more honest with yourself. To get the most out of these relationship journal prompts, it’s important to be totally honest.

For some of the questions, I’ll add my thoughts to give you some inspiration. As you will see some questions are designed for everyone, while others are aimed at singles or couples.
