"Emma and I use them often"
For Something New - Playful - Funny - Interesting
Emma and I frequently use conversation starters. They're a great way of covering new topics to chat about or asking questions you'd never dare bring up out of the blue.
Over the years we've bought a decent amount of conversation starters.... the biggest problem I've found with them is that they're a use once only deal. Unless you're dating new people regularly you won't be asking the same questions twice – so spending money on fancy store bought conversation starters that come in a pretty box is pointless to me.
Our favourites - 62 of them
Emma and I have collected a bunch of conversation topics and questions (62 of them) that we found entertaining and intriguing and we've put these into a simple format that you can download right now, print off and take with you on your date. You'll take it in turns asking each other questions and answering them too.
"Not on the first date!"
Now, introducing conversation starters to the date doesn't mean that you've become boring. Think of it as doing something daring – as you wouldn't normally be asking your date some of these questions. I don't recommend them on the first date – but there's nothing wrong with bringing them into the relationship early on.
I highly recommend downloading our conversation starters if you find yourself chatting about the kids, finances or work on date night.

Don't make the mistake of powering through all 62 conversation starters all at once just to get through them! If a great conversation is sparked, then the job is done, just let it roll naturally. You might want to refer to a couple of starters in one session, but if you only go for a couple you'll have some left for next time!
Conversations starters are meant to be playful and fun - although some questions may push boundaries. It's important that boundaries are met and you and your partner agree that questions need not be answered if you or your date feel uncomfortable.
Just a few examples of the conversations waiting to happen:
"When we met, I thought...."
"If I could time travel, I'd go...."
"One thing we should do more of is..."

The Best Valentine's Ever!
My most memorable Valentine's Day wasn't in a fancy restuarant or amongst a romantic setting. It was simple, so simple that absolutely EVERYONE can make it happen!
My favourite Valentine's Day was a picnic in a park with Champagne, cheese, anitpasto and a set of conversation starters! It opened up topics of conversations that you wouldn't normally ask your partner but would still love to know.
