Finding the right person to date is an adventure in itself! Whether you meet your next romantic partner through online dating or through more traditional means, you will need to invest time in getting to know the person who you hope to build a loving connection with. What you don’t want during dates is to have awkward pauses in conversation as you both struggle to think about what to talk about. Here are some fabulous conversation topic questions to initiate during dates:
What Has Been Your Greatest Accomplishment? Each person’s life is a work in progress, and sharing your goals with each other early on in the relationship is very important to do. Some of the most disappointing relationship moments occur when a couple realizes that they do not share similar visions for their lives. Sharing your greatest accomplishments with each other will help you to determine whether or not you and your mate are compatible. For instance, letting your mate know that your greatest accomplishment was going on a vacation to tour your ancestral homeland will let your mate know how important your family history means to you.
What Word Describes You Best?This is a super question to ask on either a first or second date. If a person cannot describe themselves in one word, it is a sign that person is not very introspective. I have learned from my own experience that it is very difficult to build a relationship with someone who is still trying to find themselves. Conversations and goals setting will be very limited when you are trying to connect with someone who is lost in their own emotional problems. By asking the person who you are dating to describe himself in one word, you are showing your genuine interest in getting to know him.
What Do You Need to Feel Fulfilled in Life?Each person’s purpose is unique, and knowing what would make your mate feel fulfilled will help you to know how you can contribute to his or her life goals. Asking your mate to describe her needs early on in the relationship will help you to feel more prepared about being the man that she needs by her side. Don’t waste any time in finding out what your partner needs to feel fulfilled in life and in love! Knowing this information early on in the relationship will help you to affirm compatibility.
What One Thing Would You Change About Your Life?This question is very deep, but it is one that you need to know the answer to from the person you are involved with. Being aware of your mate’s regrets in life will help you to understand where he or she is coming from. We are all shaped by our experiences, and we make many of our current decisions based on the experiences we have had. Someone whose previous relationship ended due to abuse would be approaching future relationships differently than someone who had never experienced an abusive relationship. Finding out what your current love interest would change about his or her life will give you much needed insight about their past as well as their hopes for the future.
The information that you learn from your love interest will help you to feel comfortable about moving forward together. Some topics might be difficult for yourself or your mate to talk about if neither of you have healed from specific past experiences. Show each other respect by letting each other know that you are very willing and ready to listen without judgment when it is time to talk.
