What to Talk About with Your Boyfriend
Dear BeingGirl Experts,
My boyfriend and I just started going out, and we have nothing
to talk about. NOTHING! Help, we need to get to know each other, but since we don't
talk it's really awkward. HELP.
When you start a new relationship, keeping up a conversation
can be difficult. Sometimes you need a little help on how to talk to your guy.
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.
When dating, 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.
