Date Night Conversation Starters

Date nights are a must for strong relationships.  Sometimes, however, at the end of the day, you struggle with something to talk about.  It's not that you have nothing in common but after long days of work and dealing with kids you may feel mentally exhausted.  That's why we have some amazing Date Night Conversation Starters that you'll love!

Date Night Conversation Starters 

  1. Where would you like to retire? This is a great place to begin a conversation with your spouse about the future.  This can include thoughts on if you will buy or build a different home at some point.  It could also help you learn more about financial needs for the future.
  2. Do you have a hobby you want to pursue?  Sometimes we put our own desires away to focus on our children or spouse.  Learning what hobbies your spouse is interested in will you a chance to also express your own. 
  3. What would you like to see as family goals for the coming year? Sometimes we flounder around just doing the same thing day in and day out.  This is a great time to explore what you and your family can do and why it hasn't happened yet. 
  4. What part of our relationship needs the most work, in your opinion? This can be tough to open up about, but sometimes it is a must.  Taking time to work out your struggles is a good thing in any relationship. 
  5. Do you feel my work/job is good for me? If you get caught up in your own work or daily life, you may not realize or see things about it that are negative.  Open yourself up to understanding how your spouse feels about what you are doing each day.  Sometimes you won't need to leave the job, but change how you react and act around your family. 
  6. What ways can I encourage you more every day? This is always a great way to learn more about your spouse and their love languages. 
  7. What super power would you most like to have? This is one of those fun things that can also give you an insight into your spouse and their fears or desires. 
  8. What is the one thing you regret doing the most? Sharing our fears includes the things you regret.  This is a great way to open up to your spouse to become more vulnerable. 
  9. Where is your favorite place to be? Sometimes you think you know, but in reality, you don't.  For many, this is a time to share about their need for more quiet time or "me time". 
  10. Sunset or sunrise, and why? Another somewhat silly question that can help you understand more about how your spouse views things. 
  11. What is your favorite memory of us? You may be surprised at this and what it is for your spouse.  
  12. At what moment did you know I was the one? These memories are some of the most special between couples.  It's a great way to spend a date night. 
  13. What is something you wish you had learned to do?  This is a great time to share more about something you may want to work on as a couple.  It is also a great time to share more about things you have an interest in learning. 
  14. How can I make your work day better? Little things make a difference.  Making coffee, packing a lunch, a text message, or even an email can all make a difference. 
  15. How can we work together to impact our community? Doing something as a family to volunteer is a great bonding experience.  Spend some time learning about what your spouse would like to do to help others. 
These tips are ideal for your date night conversations and are a great way to learn more about your spouse.  Add these to your list for those nights out without kids, or even for the times you are alone and have a chance to talk.
