You might be surprised to know that the couple pictured above are having their very first conversation. They have just met for the first time and used their own conversation starter questions developed from years of experience. I relished the moment to learn from them.

It’s true that ladies enjoy telling their wedding story almost as much as sharing their birth stories. We have a superpower called ’emotion’. We are able to make a deep connection though words. We love asking the men in our lives thought provoking questions, don’t we?!

The goal is of course, to deepen your relationship with that close bond only the two of you share. One way of achieving that is through intimate personal conversations. Some conversation starter questions should be for daydreaming together, some should be just for fun and some will help with making future plans together.

Conversation starter questions are great for taking along on long distance road trips too. I always stash the list with me when we head out on vacation. Those are the most fun conversations my husband and I enjoy.

  1. These are great! It’s funny, I was so afraid that as we entered the “empty nest” phase, that we would have nothing to talk about together. It’s been fine, but I admit to spending time in advance thinking about what new things we can talk about over dinner. Lately there has been a whole lot going on at work, so our conversations have been a little work-focused, so I think I’m going to use some of these – thank you! Definitely pinning this one!

    1. Wendy, we have been empty nesting for years now. At first, I was concerned too but now we are loving our life together as empty nester’s, as I’m sure you are too. We still frequently find our discussions reverting to the children and grandchildren. I hope you have fun with some of the questions on the list. We sure have. Thank you so much for stopping by and thank you for the Pin. My hubby and I always talk about work at the dinner table too. LoL

  2. What a great idea. Sometimes I feel like when we are on a date with out the kids we just talk about the kids! lol I think I will use some of these on our next date.

  3. I was actually just thinking about this recently! I need to ask my husband more than “how was work?” lol These are wonderful and I can’t wait to use them! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I love this Shirley! Pinned and tweeted. Thanks for sharing with us this week at Brag About It! Can’t wait to pop some of these questions ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Laurie, I actually keep a list on the desktop of my laptop and spring one every now and then. He thinks I’m surfing the net or working on my blog. He has no idea I’m really just thinking about him. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. It is so important to get to know someone well and we tend to get busy with life and take them for granted. My husband just found a different article with similar questions and suggested we take some time with it this weekend. I’ll be printing these out too!

  6. Every time my husband and I teach a marriage seminar at our church we give the couples an assignment. They have to go out on date and they can’t talk about the kids, finances or work. I bet some of them have a hard time trying to think of something to say that doesn’t involve work, kids or finances. These are all great conversation starters and would be perfect for date night or any night.

  7. These are some great ideas. I remember going on a road trip with the hubs (we had no kids yet) and we did stuff like these. It was so much fun. We have not had a list like this for a while. Pinning.

  8. I love these questions – a little bit off centre and that would make for great conversations! thanks for sharing at our #OTM link up ~ Leanne

    1. Thanks Leanne. I’d love to hear the laughter and see the smiles with reactions to some of these questions. I hope couples will feel closer to one another after having these kinds of fun conversations while taking a break from talking about the kids and finances.

We enjoying hearing from you!
