Here’s a fun game. It’s good for breaking the ice.
List your three favorite animals, in order. List three words that you feel describe each animal.
Send it to me by email here at POF and I’ll explain the meaning of the game in an email back to you. Then you can try it on your friends, your family, at parties, etc. Have fun!
As an example, here’s mine:
1. Pandas. Cute, mischievous, interesting.
2. Dogs. Energetic, friendly, fun.
3. Dolphins. Intelligent, playful, mysterious.

Here's what I wrote when I first signed up:
"You know what my favorite date really is? A day at the zoo. Watching the animals together and sharing all the aww moments is the way to my heart."
And you know what? It worked!
