Free Printable Conversation Starters For Your Next Date Night!

Free printable conversation starters for your next date night

We have a rule that when we go on dates that we try to stick with as much as possible. Austin and I make sure that we do not talk about kids, work, and other obligations. That is why we are huge fans of conversation starters.

Over the years, we have used books and decks of cards to help us come up with things to talk about out of the ordinary. I think it is so important to escape from the things that are going on in your life and retreat into your spouse.

Austin and I have teamed up together to create a set of free printable conversations starters for your next date night. All you will need to do is sign up and you will receive the free printable in your inbox.

I always have a stack of topics in my purse to whip at any  moment!

Why Conversation Starters Are Important In Marriage

Our souls crave deep conversation and intimate connection. Remember back to your dating life? When you were getting to know the other person, it seemed as though there wasn’t a shortage of meaningful things to talk about.

When you’ve been married for a few years, you might find that your conversations have digressed to to-do lists, work and kids. Sure, those conversations do need to take place, but it is important to take a break from it.

Retreat Into Your Spouse

I’m a huge believer that you should retreat from the world and lose yourself in your spouse. How can you do that if you talk about things that require action, planning, and concentration?

When you take time away from the world to stare deeply in one another’s eyes, hold hands, flirt, smile, and have intentional conversations, you will connect on a deeper level.

It is so important to take the time to run away with your spouse, even it if is just to the kitchen table.

Don’t Assume You Know Everything About Them

One mistake that I see, is that people who have been married for a long time tend to think they have the other person all figured out. The truth is, no one stays the same. Over time, you will grow and change in the way you think.

You need to have conversations that allow you to dream and discover new things about your spouse. I think you can even learn new things about yourself when you are asked questions you have never had to think through.

Be a student of your spouse! They can be the most fascinating subject you’ve ever learned!

How do you and your spouse re-connect?

  1. Hello, thank you for the conversation starters, there are some really great questions. Not to long ago, my wife and I wanted to put more effort into having more date nites, and found we would wind up talking about kids, scheduling, family “stuff”… our date nights wound up being no different than any random dinner at home, except the occasional difference in setting. Our genius idea on date nights lost steam. So we tried setting rules..”no kid talk”, no “scheduling talk”, no “work” talk…..( we are in the same field, so work talk is as common as kid talk)….Needless to say, that did not work…unless you consider complete silence a bonding moment (as we attempted to think of subjects to talk about). So after reading different relationship sites (including yours, and others you have recommended) and wanting employ a new strategy to really make date nite work, I googled “questions for you spouse”, “date night subjects” and other similar searches. I found a bunch of fun, thoughtful, and sexy questions. I printed and cut them out so each question is on a small slip of paper, and placed these in a box. Now when we have date nite we will either grab a couple of questions (hard to bring a box into a dining establishment), or if the setting works (outdoor picnic, hanging by the firepit) we will bring the box with us (it is not huge, it’s a medium sized cigar box) shake it up, and randomly pick out the question. The deal is if the question is not a subject we want to tackle (might not be in mood for a deep thought question), we throw it back in the box for another day. I found it takes the pressure off of coming up with a subject/topic… and encourages you to talk about things that you usually don’t discuss.
    Your questions will be a fun addition to the box. Thank you. (sorry so long)…

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your story! I am so thankful that I am not the only one that thinks conversation starters can be a game changer for date night. It is so important to find ways of connecting with your spouse outside of the normal every day things.

      I love your thoughts! I hope that you enjoy these questions and it is my plan to come up with more later on.
