Maintain chemistry with each other (in addition to attraction)
Only intrinsic beauty lasts forever. Physical attraction is only temporary, only soul connection can bind you in the long run. How to start fun topics to keep you fluent and your boyfriend doesn’t think you’re starting to get bored? Do you want to make a good impression on your new boyfriend so that he thinks you are smart and intelligent?
Girls are often in such a dilemma. You want to sound smart and funny, but you would seem rude if you don’t know how to express your sentences correctly or you just sound like a nerd. Don’t worry, all the girls have been through it. It’s normal to be anxious about your new boyfriend because you want to go out of your way to impress him.
We have dozens of ideas for you. There are tons of things you can talk about, from TV shows to astrophysics, you will never run out of cool topics! Check out these fun topics to keep the conversation going!
20 cool things to talk about
1. Talk about a television show as you watch it together
Let’s say you’re watching your favorite show finale separately at home. Play it at the same time so you can sync up and discuss the plot as you go. Time to dismiss how stupid or amazing the ending was with a smile on your face, despite the heated discussion, perhaps.
2. Listen to music together and share your thoughts
Music is really a great way to keep people together. It transcends any language barrier and allows you to fully immerse yourself in the world of melody. If you are a metalhead or a lover of soft jazz, you can always share your taste in music with your lover so that he can better understand your inner world.
Send him a playlist and sync it so the two of you listen to the same piece at the same time. It’s a great way to unwind after a long day at work if you can’t physically relax with your boyfriend. His musical preference is part of him.
3. Review a recipe you want to try next time
Prep for your next home cooking session! Submit a few recipes and see which ones might be fun to try. Texting makes it fun because you’re on your phone anyway, so you can instantly research and share it with your boyfriend. It’s a good idea to talk about something that involves using your phone. Two birds with one stone!
4. Creepy murder cases on the Internet
Admit it, we all have that curious heart about murder mystery cases. Our guilty pleasure from all the nightly Youtube horror videos, we want to solve the case and avenge the victim. Talk about those cases with your boyfriend and try to play detective to guess what really happened. It’s a great way to bond because we all want to be the hero and help the poor. You never know, maybe you’re onto something with your guesswork.
5. What superpower would you like to have?
Imagine, would you want to be Thor or Spiderman? Talk about the different superpowers you want to have and why. This is likely to spark a love of superheroes in all of you. Have a gentle (respectful) debate about whether you like DC or Marvel better. Don’t make this into a heated discussion, we can all love different things.
Choosing your superpower is like choosing which movie you want to see for your next night date!
6. Tag him in travel publications
Like the snowy and magical Alps of Switzerland, or the enchanting historical heritage of Macchu Picchu, or the glamorous nightlife of Tokyo? Tag your boyfriend in travel posts so he has a clue that you would like to go there with him! Ask him if he thinks those places are cool. Time to save for your next adventure!
7. Tag him on the boyfriend memes
Snoring loudly? Steal all of your boyfriend’s oversized shirts? Tag him on all the funny memes you two resonate with and have a good laugh about it. Try those hilarious memes about different reasons to piss off your girls too to see if he agrees that you’re so picky!
8. Send your favorite accounts to follow
Get him to develop tastes and a sense of humor similar to yours. Give him some accounts to follow or that you love and see his reactions. Think about those accounts and tell him why you think those accounts are worth following. We live in the 21st century, linking through social media accounts is essential.
Politics is a sensitive subject, but it is very real and it happens around us every day. You can’t avoid politics, so you could also talk about it with the person close to you.
10. About upcoming events
Did you come across a techno party on Facebook? Or a new pop-up store downtown? Social media is a great place to search for upcoming events for you and your boyfriend to bond over. Give him a few options to choose from and go to a fun socializing event with random people on the internet.
11. Silly things about you
Talk about some stupid thing you did when you were in high school or when you were a kid. Laugh at all the nonsense you did while getting to know each other better. We all did stupid things when we were young. No shame, no regret, just fun talking about it!
12. Favorite hiking experience
The best hiking trip? Talk about the time you spent 6 hours hiking in southern Colorado and saw the Milky Way when you were pitching the tents. It is so humble to see all the stars in the galaxy and to think that you are just a tiny speck in the entire universe. Life is always wonderful.
13. Weekend plans
What is your plan for the weekend? Many couples do not meet during the weekdays due to work. Making the perfect weekend plan over the phone seems like the best option. Think of some ideas and make them come true!
Believe me, guys like gossip as much as girls, they just won’t admit it. Any juicy gossip at work? Share it with your boyfriend and you will be surprised how much guys enjoy good drama too.
15. Let go of your steam
You are here for each other, for better and for worse. There are times when you just have a bad day and need to vent. Ranting with your boyfriend is also another way to bond. Remember, you are not ranting about him. You’re ranting about something else. He doesn’t want to turn this into a fight, so don’t file a complaint against him.
16. Do you remember much about the place where you grew up?
International couples would love this theme. You grew up around a bunch of fast-food chains, while your boyfriend might be from exotic Samoa. He might be jealous of your glitzy city girl lifestyle, while you are jealous of his connection to nature. It will be fun to hear how other people grow up on the other side of the world.
17. Your core values
Our core values are what hold us together. We may have different opinions about certain things, but never the ones that matter most to us. What if freedom and equality are something you stand for, but your boyfriend tells you that he believes that boys should definitely be paid more than girls? That is more than just an opinion. That is a fundamental clash of values.
You should definitely make sure you have the same core values and it would be a good opportunity to see what he stands for on a date.
18. Your favorite Fast & Furious movie
You must have seen at least one of them. This franchise is a legend. It’s more science fiction than actual science fiction movies. Seeing Vin Diesel cross a bridge is the fruit of the Bollywood climax. If your date starts to get boring, bring up this topic and I’m sure you’ll be laughing for the next hour.
19. Classify your relative
We all have preferences, it is a lie if we say that we love our parents and all siblings equally. There is always a ranking. Ask your date to rank your relative to see who they think is the closest. This is just an evil question to make him smile and think you’re a sneaky girl but in a good way.
20. The most unforgettable experience
Close your eyes and think of a picture right now. What comes to mind? Was it a picture of the day you got a promotion at work? The day you took your first solo trip or the day you finally paid off your student loan?
There will be many unforgettable memories in our life. It is good to remember them sometimes and feel nostalgic.
Didn’t you know that there can be so many things to talk about with your date? Many of these are common every day topics that you will come across, but you rarely think about when you are trying to carry on a conversation. Try these themes with your new boyfriend and blow him away with how fun you are!
