Some Conversation Ideas When You’re Running Out

When we’re single, we tend to crave being in a relationship. This craving then sometimes turns into desperation. However, one must know that being in a relationship requires a lot of work. Most especially if you’re going to start from an online position.

The reason being is because you don’t have as much opportunity as you would in a live dating setup. Everything that you and the other person will participate in requires communication. And this communication will deal with a lot of conversations; which sometimes, can dry up like a well in a seasonal drought.

If you find yourself in this situation and you want to invest more effort into making the connection grow, keep reading.

Things To Talk About

This section will give you many ideas on what to talk about. Please take out your notepad and jot all of these down.

Things To Talk About

Something You’ve Recently Read, Watched, or Seen

Sharing something interesting, and sometimes outrageous, can break the ice in a good way. If you’re tired of being asked if you’ve already eaten or tired of asking how the other person’s day went, you MUST always share this type of information.

Doing so will not only save you from dead air, but it will also make the conversations more exciting. For example, sharing a really funny meme or an amazing documentary that you just watched about sea turtles.

Work Stories

The other person may not be totally interested in what you do for a living. But there are certain scenarios that you can share with them. However, don’t confuse this with gossip. Things like certain launches, parties, or events that your company is planning are all good ideas.

You may also share a shift of your company’s policy or how inclusive the chair is towards transgender people.

Animals, Pets, Travel

If you share the same amount of passion for animals, why not talk about organizations supporting them? You may also share the latest news and updates about a cause that you’re both following. You may even encourage the other person to sign certain petitions or support certain causes.

By the way, you don’t always have to get too deep into this kind of talk. Why not share how great your pets are or their new cool haircut? You may even exchange pet care tips with each other.

Lastly, if you both love to travel, you can talk about meeting up in a destination that you’ve both never been to before. Conversations like these will less likely bore them because they’re already interested in the same thing. They will be more likely willing to share their thoughts with you.

Current Events

These are also good ideas to converse about. But you have to be very selective on what you will share. The things you should avoid will be discussed a little later but some good stuff to talk about will be an opening of a new store. You may also talk about what’s latest in technology.

Anything that opens up for a positive and inciteful conversation is good to share.

Business and Career

Are both of you entrepreneurs or aspiring to be? Do you share the same love for seeing the highs and lows of the stock market? Perhaps you’re both fiddling with investing in cryptocurrency?

The list is neverending when it comes to the talks of business. Also, if you’re in the same industry, why not share your career milestones and goals?

Esoteric topics like Paranormal, Extra-Terrestrial, Conspiracy Theories, and more

Many people have esoteric interests. You have to be open-minded for the other person to be encouraged to share theirs. What’s good about talking about these topics is that you are both in the open-ear position wherein no idea is too ridiculous.

Conversations like these will connect the both of you on a deeper level.


If you’re reading this in 2021 and you’re in your 30s or 40s, you probably grew up in the gaming console revolution. If the other person is also into video games as you are, talk about it! You can even participate in online games together!

Because the COVID-19 doesn’t allow many people to travel and date, it’s the perfect catalyst to explore new worlds!


No matter which gender, sports are something that anyone, in general, could talk about. The rules and scores are rarely open to interpretation and will provide both of you with a common thing to support. However, if you’re not rooting for the same team, choose another sport!

Things To Avoid

Now that you have an idea of what to talk about, it’s time for the things that you should avoid. If you don’t want to risk the compatibility that you have, keep reading.

Things To Avoid


Unless both of you are atheists, don’t talk about religion. However, in some instances, both people will share the same religion. However, even members of one church argue about how they interpret their books so the safest way to deal with this is to not deal with it all.


Many friendships, even familial relationships, have ended because of opposing political beliefs. What makes you think that the person who you’re still trying to get to know won’t leave you the moment you spout something badly about the side that they support?


Technically, show business is not something as harmful as politics and religion. However, avoid this if you don’t want the other person to think that you lack culture. It can be offputting if you talk too much about the Kardashians or Justin Bieber in your conversations.

This will give you a bit of an image that you’re superficial or worse, dumb. Light talks about your favorite actor or favorite movie are cool. But making your daily conversations about celebrities is a bit oppressive.


A person will have the interest in spending the rest of their lives with you if you provide them with a positive outlook in life. If you always sulk or you are always down, they’re going to find you repulsive. It’s okay to share some failures here and there but dragging them to toxicity and sadness all the time won’t benefit you in any way.

Family Problems

A saying that goes along the lines of “You will know a person’s true colors by how they talk about another person” is true. If you can’t stop yourself from revealing all the negativity about your family or worse, trash-talking the members of it, the other person will think that being with you will be a burden for them.

Remember, when it comes to conversations, always make them positive and light. Don’t forget to check your My Ladyboy Date inbox today! Someone with a great conversation starter may have just sent you a message!
