Are you and your partner stuck on the same ole’, same ole’ “How was your day?” conversation? The worst part is that it usually leads to an answer that’s about as tired as the question itself. If you thought you were along – you’re not! I just found the perfect, simple solution from The Dating Divas. They created these stacks and stacks of thought-provoking questions to draw out some much more stimulating and meaningful conversations.
These printable conversation starters have 250 prompts about intimacy, finances, quality time, romance, and family – so if you make it through all of them, you’ll have hit all of the biggest ideas in marriage!
It’s simple – keep them near the dinner table or on a night stand. Take turns choosing a category and pulling the top card from the deck. Read aloud from the card and then chat about it. SOmetimes it’s an “easy” question and you can share your thoughts for a few minutes, while other times you may have to stop and force yourselves to move onto something else!
To keep everything organized and to make sure the cards aren’t spread throughout the nightstand (or even the entire house), it’s nice that they fit so perfectly in an Altoids tin. BONUS: You can get crafty decorating the tin! Keep all the cards in their little boxes, even the ones you may have already discussed because you never know when your thoughts might change or something new might come to you.
We’re pretty satisfied with our question a day routine but I do think it would be fun to use these conversation starters on a long road trip too. Having thoughtful conversation makes the drive seem a lot more purposeful and feel a lot less like a waste of time. We’re also lucky enough to see each other pretty much every night but I really think these would be fun to add to a nightly phone conversation if you’re in a long distance relationship!
So if you’re ready to open up those lines of communication the easy way and stop discussing only the basics of your spouse’s day, try some conversation starters today!
