1. News and Current Affairs

Whenever you’re out of things to talk about with your boyfriend, you can always mention interesting news or hot political topics that you think he might be interested in as well. Even if he doesn’t usually watch the news, at least you’ll find out something about his likes and dislikes. Plus, even if current affairs might be a little difficult to digest at times, they can also lead to challenging and passionate conversations.

2. Comic Books

If you’re a fan of comic books, you can ask your boyfriend if he enjoys them too. If he doesn’t, it’s time for you to make a case for them and share your passion. But if he does, that’s even better! You can have a conversation about your favorite comics and what you like most about graphic novels. Even if you’ve never read a comic book, you can ask him if he has. Maybe he’ll be able to provide you with some great choices.


3. Family

Another great conversation topic that can help you get to know your boyfriend better is talking about your families. If this is among your first dates, try to stay away from sad stories and share the good ones instead. Think family trips or childhood pranks.

4. Weekend Plans

This is a perfect way to also let your boyfriend know that you would like to spend the weekend together doing something fun. Plus, trying to decide where you’re going to go and what you’re going to do is bound to start a lovely conversation.

5. Your/His Day

When everything else fails, you can always ask your boyfriend about his day and share yours with him. This works perfectly if you’re at the beginning of your relationship because this is how you get to learn his schedule and find out what he does on a daily basis.

6. Sports

This might sound like a cliché, but the truth is that one of you is probably interested in at least one sport, or watches games once in a while. Think beyond soccer or baseball. Consider skiing, mountain climbing, swimming, or anything else that you can think of related to sports. Chances are you’ll find something you both enjoy doing and could do together from now on.

7. Dreams

Dreams can be quite an exciting topic to talk about since you never know what kind of interesting things your boyfriend dreams about. However, it can also be a touchy subject if the other person is dealing with recurring nightmares or other types of bad dreams. So make sure you read the room and see whether your boyfriend is comfortable talking about this or not.


8. Friends

Another conversation topic we’d like to suggest is talking about friends, be it yours or his (or both). If you have mutual friends, talking about them (not gossiping!) can be a great way to loosen up. If you don’t, get him to tell you about his best friends and their memories together. Then, do the same for him.

9. TV Shows/Movies


A lot of couples enjoy watching tv series together or going to the movies to see the newest releases. You could talk about movies you want to see together or movies you’ve recently watched with your family, friends, or that you’ve binged on Netflix by yourself.


10. Religion/Beliefs

It may be good for you to discuss your values and beliefs with your boyfriend to make sure that you’re on the same page. If you have a better understanding of what each other believes, it’ll be easier to understand and respect each other and your values.

Maybe you just want to ask each other questions to get to know each other. Here are some good texts to send your boyfriend to start a conversation:

  • What do I do that makes you happy?
  • How did you feel when you first met me?
  • What was your first kiss like?
  • Where do you see us 5 years from now?
  • How many kids do you hope we have?
  • What is your favorite date that we’ve been on together?


We hope these 14 things to talk about with your boyfriend will help you the next time you find yourself on a date and are stressing out about finding new and interesting conversation topics.
