Five Journal Writing Prompts for New Love
One of the best feelings in the world is when you’ve met someone new and the sparks fly. Everything feels possible. It’s exciting and electric. But it can also be scary. Can we maintain our love? What can we do for long-term relationship success? And how best to do that? The best relationship happens when you can find a way to nurture that spark into a warmth that will endure. One of the best ways to do that is through journaling as a couple.
Everyone I know wants a great relationship. Most people recognize that there is always room to improve your relationship and make your connection deeper. But how to improve your relationship, even when things are great? Great questions are a key part of building a healthy relationship.
Below are five great journal prompts for couples that work great if you’re in a new relationship. If you’ve been in a relationship for a long time, you may find these journal questions will work well for you, too. Don’t be shy - give it a try.
Journaling together as a couple in a relationship is something not many couples do. That’s a huge missed opportunity. Journaling together will help you learn more about yourself and clarify what’s important to you. It will help you reflect on what’s important to your partner. Besides, journaling together will help you to process differences before they become a burden.
Journal for Couples
With a great journal for couples and great journal prompts, you can actually guide your new love to the future you want. That’s not to say there won’t be challenges along the way. Let’s be honest, there are always challenges. But relationship issues are only a problem when you don’t have the tools to deal with those relationship problems.
Many people journal as a private experience, as a way to reflect and get insight into their own lives. I started keeping my own journal when I lived in Mexico as a kid. It was a way for me to process the major events happening in my life. Two years later, I spent seven months living and traveling in Europe. Again, I journaled. Since then, keeping a journal has been a part of my life. I still have a box of all my journals. In fact, they’re so important to me that I’ve scanned them all through, too.

#1 List the top 7 things that made you fall in love with your lover.
Why 7? Well, usually the first 3 or 4 are obvious. So, this gets you past the obvious. Remember, it’s often the little things that carry us through the long haul.
#2 What is one special thing you want to do with your significant other in the next six months?
If you’ve ever heard of SMART Goals, you’ll know that setting an attainable goal needs to have a timeframe. You can chose three months or as much as a year. If you’re love is new, 3-6 months is good.
#3 Complete this sentence: I feel understood and seen by my partner when…
If you are clear about what makes you feel seen and understood by your lover, then you can share it in a way that helps them know. We all want to support our loved ones, so it’s good to know what that looks like for us so that they can do more of that.
#4. What is the most recent event with your lover that you want to cherish and remember forever?
This is a fun journal prompt. It’s one of those that makes you realize that when you’re in a relationship, you’re already building memories. And if you’ve been together for a long time, you’re still building memories!
#5. Last time you had a misunderstanding or disagreement, write about it from their point of view.
