These deck of cards can be the perfect tool for this time & to deepen your relationship.

Each person takes turns in asking the questions. Once the question is read, both of you have to answer! Feel free to discuss, follow up and ask your own questions in between. There is no right way to play, take as much time as you want and work at the pace you like. Remember, curiosity and empathy goes a long way. In this game and in love!
Do you remember the first few weeks of being together? The sparks, getting to know each other, uninterrupted long hours of conversation and all the butterflies? We want you to experience it again!At Baely, we love love! And we know you love being seen, understood and celebrated with your close ones. Whether you have been together for 6 months or 15 years - there is always more to discover and share together. In daily hassles of logistics and planning, romance and curiosity can take a backseat. Baely Baatein was created to help you bring back the curiosity, learning and romance of it all. Okay but seriously, why? The answer is simple. You can’t have love without connection. Research shows that the building blocks of connection - curiosity & empathy can be built through quality time and meaningful conversations. With Baatein, you can do exactly that - learn about each other through discovery, laughter and romance!
There is no clock running. Feel free to go through the deck at your own pace. You could do 5 questions or the whole 50 at a time, it’s up to you! If you need time to think about your answer, that's perfectly fine. The goal here is not to respond quickly, but to have deeper conversations with your partner. We have seen couples take even 30 mins on just one question and some can take just 5 minutes, all comes down to what works best for you.
Well, yes and no. Yes, to make sure you both have enough time and space. So probably not to try when you’re half asleep after a long day at work or in the middle of running errands. Otherwise, just be prepared for meaningful conversations, laughter and a whole lot of love!
We have created these decks based on research, our time spent with couples and drawn from our experiences of what we love talking about with our loved ones. They are designed to spark curiosity, build intimacy and bring in that team spirit of you and your partner together against everything else. These are open ended questions meant to guide the conversation beyond Yes, No & Maybe; we want you to open your hearts and minds to explore much more together. You will learn some fun new details of what makes your partner who they are and be able to share your cherished moments with them. Our hope is that the time you spend together with Baatein will be a conversation to remember! Happily, if we may add.
We love your thoughtfulness! Here’s what we recommend - Be mindful! Focus on your partner, this means no texting, scrolling or daydreaming. Be empathetic! Both of you will be sharing parts of your life that you cherish and value, so remember to bring in the same warmth, attention and kindness you have into this time together. It’s important to make space for each other’s experiences and know everyone has their own point of view! Communicate! Feeling nervous, want a break or want to ask your own questions? Tell your partner! Just like you found your match, we want you to find your own way of playing Baatein that works the best for you.
That’s fair! When we don’t know what is coming, it is natural to feel scared. Go through ‘Our Decks’, we’ve given a sneak peak into what you can expect from each set. You can discuss with your partner and make the decision together in picking the right deck to dive into. If you’re still feeling hesitant, talk to your partner! Maybe you guys can take it slow, one question at a time or even plan to talk about a few questions when you’re ready. Remember, this is all about connecting with your partner. Do what feels right for you!
