How to Reduce the Fear of Deep Conversation

First things first: make it enjoyable! There are several cues available to spark meaningful discourse, from flashcard games to popular internet guides.

Beginning with questions that have already been thought of by someone else, according to Boykin, "makes [the encounter] feel like a game and minimizes the possibility that we start to connect significance to why our partner is asking a question."

It's also quite OK to use pop culture as a starting point. Boykin continues, "Books, films, and television shows you've seen together are a simple, low-stress approach to talk about values. "You're talking about a fictitious character and the decisions you see them making, so [problems] don't become hyper-personal."

Every couple could use some fresh conversation starters for date-night dinner, whether it has been a few weeks or several years.

Any conversation that helps you learn more about your partner's goals in life, regardless of how unimportant it may appear (favourite TV shows, ideal holiday destinations), is beneficial. The more you converse, the more comfortable you'll feel around one another, which is essential when it comes to disclosing sensitive information.

Relationship therapist Esther Boykin asserts that "communication skills are much like any other skill." "You get better at it the more you practice, especially in discussions where you feel vulnerable."
