Happy conversations are the difference between a happy relationship and a boring one. Conversations can help both of you understand each other better, and help both of you bond better.
Topics to talk about in a relationship:
When youâ€™re in a relationship, itâ€™s easy for the right topics to talk about to slip right past your fingers. If youâ€™re in a new relationship, both of you may have so many questions to ask each other. But the fear of sounding rude or getting too personal may leave a lot of empty space in a conversation.
Almost all of these conversation ideas can be repeated in your together time, and the best part about these topics is that your partner will always have a new answer each time you ask most of these questions.
Plans for the weekend. Talk about your weekend plans together even if itâ€™s still Monday evening. Itâ€™s exciting and fun, and itâ€™ll give both of you something to look forward to after a long week of work.
Compliments. Talk about the things you like or admire about your partner. Let them know just how much you appreciate them, be it about their personality or about something they did the earlier week.
Daily worries. â€˜So whatâ€™s been worrying you lately?â€™ sounds so simple, but yet, itâ€™s something that can make your partner feel grateful and cared for. Even if they have no worries, just knowing that you care would make them feel good about being in the relationship.
Work. Thereâ€™s always something to talk about work, be it a new project or a bad boss. By talking about each otherâ€™s work life, itâ€™ll help both of you understand each otherâ€™s professional sides and ethics better.
The little secrets. Secrets are always fun to talk about. You can talk about secrets as a game where each of you have to take turns to reveal one new secret. Itâ€™ll be a lot of fun, and both of you can get to know each other more intimately.
Movies and TV shows. Thereâ€™s always something new and fun every week when it comes to movies and shows. Talk about each otherâ€™s favorite shows or the movies both of you are excited to watch.
Food and restaurants. Even if your lover isnâ€™t passionate about cooking, theyâ€™d at least appreciate good food. Talk about new restaurants or places both of you should visit over the weekend or on a special day. Itâ€™ll give both of you a chance to explore cuisines together and also make dinner plans for the weeks to come.
Personal dreams. Talk about your dreams with your partner. Tell them what you intend to do or what your visions and dreams are. Itâ€™ll make for great conversations, and help your partner get to know your personal side better.
Vacations. Plan your vacations or weekend getaways weeks or even months earlier. Vacations are almost always the highlight of an entire calendar year, so even dreamily planning it ahead of time can get both of you excited.
Hobbies and personal interests. What do you enjoy doing in your own private time? Share your thoughts with your lover. Chances are, your partner too may have a few hobbies that you like.
Offer help. Ask your partner if you could help them with something, even if itâ€™s as silly as a chore. Working together on tasks always brings two people closer. And itâ€™ll always make your partner feel grateful for having you around.
Self improvement. When you talk about your own flaws and where youâ€™d like to improve, it helps your partner feel more relaxed and comfortable, and theyâ€™d break down their own high walls and talk about their vulnerabilities too.
Families. Talking about each otherâ€™s families gives hours of interesting details and gossip. And it also helps make first introductions and spending time with family more fun.
Advice. Communication isnâ€™t always about getting to know more about each other. Every now and then, offer advice and share your suggestions on what your lover could do to improve their life or their work.
The future. This topic can make for intellectual conversations that can help you get to know your partnerâ€™s view about life and the pursuits that matter to them.
Shared goals. Plan shared goals together. It could be about painting a wall, running a marathon the next year or just about anything else. When you plan things or try something new together, it brings both of you closer.
Personal opinions. If you truly love each other, donâ€™t hold your thoughts back if you want to share whatâ€™s on your mind with your lover. It doesnâ€™t matter if itâ€™s a suggestion or a warning, if you feel it, say it. Your partner will feel good to know that youâ€™re always looking out for them no matter what.
