Conversation Starters for Couples

Posted by on

We know it's tough - working all day at home or out - and you finally get time for yourself. How do you have the time and energy for your relationship after a long day? But days turn into weeks turn into months. 
Start today by asking 1 or 2 Conversation starter questions. Take 5 minutes to sit with your partner and learn more about who they are.

Conversation Starters

  1. When do you last remember laughing with me the most?
  2. Some people talk to figure out what they’re thinking, and some people don’t talk until they know what they’re thinking. Which do you think you are? Which do you think I am?

  4. What’s one time lately that I’ve made you feel great about yourself? How can I do that more often?

  17. What was your favorite toy as a kid that kids don’t really play with now? (If we have kids, should we try to find it for them?)
