Things to talk about with your Crush
Discuss the following interesting topics with your Crush.
1. Talk about their day:
The first way to start a conversation with your Crush is to ask him/her about their day. Whether it ended happily or it was boring.
It is not only a great thing to talk about but it also shows how caring you are.
2. Talk about their Work:
After asking your crush how his/her day went, what do you do next?
Talk about their work or studies if he/she is still a Student.
You may decide to ask them how comfortable they are with their job and the reason behind their answer.
Incase your Crush is still a student, ask him/her about today’s lecture. By starting this way, you are not only ushering him/her into the conversation but you are also trying to know their present situation.

3. Talk about their family:
Don’t think that asking your crush about their day and how their work went is the only way to tell him/her that you care.
Why not ask of his/her family. It simply means that you don’t care for him/her only, but only for their family.
Get to know the present condition of their family. Ask of their Parents and Siblings. It may even be an opportunity for you to know more about their background.
4. Talk about their hobbies:
Another interesting topic to talk about is their hobbies.
Remember, you are not just asking about their hobbies just to keep him/her talking, but you are also trying to know what they are passionate about.
One thing you shouldn’t do is to be the only one asking. Allow him/her to participate fully in the conversation. If he/she did not ask of yours also ( I mean your hobbies), you may decide to ask them something like – don’t you want to know mine also?. It is a great way to keep your conversation going.
5. Ask He/She about their background:
Another thing to talk about with your crush is their background. Try to know more about him/her and don’t forget to talk about yours also.
You may decide to know the particular country or state he/she is from (assuming you are from different countries or regions).
Another thing you can talk about when it comes to their background is ‘their family’. You may decide to ask questions like ‘what is your position in your family? (You are trying to know whether he/she is the firstborn, 2nd or lastborn). Where did you grow up? etc.
Topics to discuss with your Girlfriend
Below are some nice topics to discuss with your girlfriend. These topics will help you not to run out of things to say while having conversations with her.
1. Talk about their interests:
Girls like sharing things they are passionate about with a friend they trust and like. Ask her about her favorite movies, music, Actors/Actresses, Authors/Books, etc.
Introducing this type of conversation will make her develop an interest in the conversation. And also, according to Research, ” The best conversations begin with showing an interest in the other person, their world, and what they might be interested in”
2. Talk about your Relationship:
You can take this opportunity to discuss any issues affecting your relationship. If your relationship is healthy (no problems or challenges in it), then, talk about how you can improve it the more.
Also, you may decide to know the things you have been doing she frowns at without your notice. Ask her questions like – are they some habits I need to stop? what are the things you like about me ever since we started this relationship? etc.

If they are things she does you don’t like, then discuss them. Don’t do it in a rude manner, but be kind. Try to let her know the reasons why you frown at those behaviors and also, don’t forget to talk about her good side. Also, appreciate her love and tell her things you like about her and why she should keep doing them.
4. Talk about her embarrassing moment:
To make your conversation with your girlfriend funny and interesting, discuss her embarrassing moment. They may be something that happened in the past she would like you to know about. Not only that but, it has become a very nice topic for both of you to discuss.

Things to discuss with a Girl on Phone
Phone conversation is quite different from one on one conversation. They are certain things you may not like to say over the phone but you can comfortably say it when you are together or on a date.
Below are some interesting things to talk about with a girl on the phone:

If you normally run out of things to discuss over the phone, then talk about the weather.
Ask her about the weather over there and also share yours with her. You may also ask her whether she likes the season/atmosphere or not.
2. Talk about where she is present:
Having talked about the weather, what do you say next? Talk about where she resides. How life has been to her. Whether she enjoys the environment or not. If she doesn’t, then how is she coping with the situation?
