Things To Talk About With Your Boyfriend

Dear BeingGirl Experts,

Do you have any good ideas for a conversation with your boyfriend? We've been going out for two months, but I'm still shy, and when we talk on the phone there is a lot of silence! Please help. Thank you.




Dear Georgia,

When you start a new relationship conversation can be difficult. Ask him about things in his life you know are important to him—family, sports, etc. Get him to share his likes and dislikes. When he talks, pay attention to what he is saying. When he mentions something he is doing, you can ask him about it later. Share with him what is happening in your life. Tell him about your daily activities, hobbies, sports, etc.


Try not to spend too much time together and too much time on the phone. This way you won’t have those pauses in your conversation. The more things you do as individuals, the more you will have to discuss when you do talk or get together. Also, when you get together, try to choose activities that will get you talking—try a new activity together. Rather than going to a movie all the time, you could go bowling or go to a ballgame. If conversation continues to be a struggle, you may need to consider whether the two of you have enough in common to have a relationship.


Good luck,

Your BeingGirl Experts

Well, talking to boyfriends can be hard. Start off by asking him if he has homework. That will start off a short conversation. Then ask him if his favorite sports team has a game coming up. That will start sparks!!! Another great thing to do is kiss!
