How do you keep a romantic conversation going?
Now, this may be in person or on phone and usually, it’s during the late hours of the night. The biggest no-no in the romantic conversations is saying “I am sleepy” in the middle of something. You can start conversations from playing a truth or dare question. Then ask them their deepest dirtiest secrets. To keep the mood on, tell them some of the things that you love. To keep the conversation going on, you must carry the mood forward and avoid breaking the flow.

How do I start a serious conversation with my boyfriend?
We often seem memes stating that the serious conversations start with “we need to talk”. However, this sentence alarms the other person’s mind and they may get into a defensive or attacking phase in their mind. This conversation then will lead to a fight and oh, boy you would not want that. As adults, you must talk and sort things out, so start by asking them about their day and if they mention something bad has happened, don’t start a serious topic there. You can always start by saying, “babe, I need to tell you something”. This will help your partner receptive but not defensive (or attacking). Start by telling them how you feel, then slowly slip in what is bothering you. Keeping your voice in a softer tone will make them feel that you are not blaming but trying to discuss things that are bothering you.
BRAINSTORMING CONVERSATION STARTERS
- What about our relationship makes you really happy?
- If you had a friend who spoke to you the same way you speak to yourself, would you keep them as a friend?
- What do you understand today about your life that you did not understand a year ago?
- When you look into the past, what do you miss the most?
- What kind of goals do you have for the next year?
Can a relationship survive without intimacy?
As we said earlier, conversations and intimacy are the two strongest pillars that hold a relationship. If you lose the conversation, it ultimately leads to lesser intimacy. You know that intimacy and having plain sex are two different things. The former involves body, mind, and soul, while the latter is just for the physical body’s need. Once both the pillars collapse, your relationship cannot survive longer. While you can regain intimacy with conversation and conversation with intimacy, you need to be willing to put in the effort and so does your partner. Remember a relationship is a ship that you both sail in together. There is no point rowing and adjusting the sails if your mate is lazing around.
