Especially if you’re at the beginning of your relationship, finding conversation topics to approach with your boyfriend can be an intimidating task. Because relationship beginnings are all about knowing each other better and establishing a connection, we’ve devised a short yet comprehensive guide to 10 things to talk about with your boyfriend when you feel you’re out of conversation ideas. Let’s have a look!
10 Things to Talk about with Your Boyfriend
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.
Now, who doesn’t love talking about food? From your favorite meals, to your favorite places to eat out, what better way to allow your boyfriend to get to know you than by sharing your culinary preferences? Not to mention the fact that you can try new restaurants together. Maybe you’ll even make a habit out of going somewhere to eat once a week.
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.
5. 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.
6. 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.
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.
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.
Most people love giving advice and helping others. Which is why this is one conversation topic that might encourage your boyfriend to open up and share more. If you need advice with something, either in your career or in your personal life, why not ask him for his opinion? This will show him that you trust his judgement and that you want him to be more involved in your life.
Finally, the last 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.
We hope these 10 things to talk about with your boyfriend are going to help you the next time you find yourself on a date and are stressing out about finding new and interesting conversation topics.
