For this special edition of our Skip the Small Talk BYOPicnic series, we met at the Boston Common and invited folks to bring someone they wanted to get to know better, whether it was someone they'd just met or someone they'd known their whole lives (other attendees also came by themselves and met people there). We developed special "bonding questions" designed to spark interesting conversations between people who already knew each other. We also had our usual get-to-know-you questions and activities. Psychology research on co-experience, decision-making, and more informed the questions and the event design.
