Interesting things to talk about when dating
If you’re struggling to come up with things to say, relationship coach, Jenna Ponaman, CPC, tells Bustle to try getting together with a group of friends."Not only does it take the pressure off of the two of you to start a conversation with each other, but having people around you will give you something to talk about afterwards," she says.
If you've been wanting to go on a trip together, talk about how excited you are to make it happen."I think people put too much pressure on their partners to deliver every single ounce of support and entertainment," Noelle Cordeaux, relationship coach and CEO of JRNI, tells Bustle."Humans are [social] creatures and only in recent years has such a hefty social burden gone to the primary relationship. Sometimes that means that there just isn't anything to talk about." In other words, it's not as big of a relationship problem as you probably think.So just be sure to keep your questions light, fun, and playful.If you want to keep things fresh, keep talking about your dreams for the future together.Sometimes (okay, most of the time), though, first dates aren't smooth sailing.
That doesn't always mean you're incompatible — just that we are humans, and dating can be awkward.
But according to relationship experts, running out of things to talk about with your long-term partner is totally common.
The best part is, there are effective ways to keep things fresh when you do eventually run out of things to say.
If your partner is the only person you really have meaningful conversations with everyday, shake it up.
That way you can have something to bring up whenever you don't have anything to else to say.
It only ever becomes a problem if running out of things to say to each other stems from boredom.
