Conversation Starters


Having got to this age, we look back and realise how many of the same questions we have asked others, and they have asked us! Where are you from? Do you have children? What do you do? etc etc. I came across these questions which I found so interesting and even if you don’t ask anyone else, check them out, as they are interesting to ponder!

Use them to get a conversation going or as a fun way to pass the time with friends or loved ones. Print them and put them in hour handbag, there is nothing better than meeting up with someone who is interesting to speak with. With 350 questions to choose from, I’m confident that everyone can find plenty of good questions to ask!

Try to be creative as you can and have fun with the questions. And don’t forget to ask follow up questions!
