What would you do if a tornado came toward you while you were driving? What would you do if someone broke into your home while you were there? What would we want to happen to our kids if we both died in a car accident? What would you do (with job, home, kids, etc.) if I died? If, after an accident, you were kept alive by machines, would you want me to sign a DNR? They can be a good checkpoint for our personal faith walk, or for our faith walk as a couple/family.
Sometimes spiritual questions seem like they're meant to be left to Bible studies, but they easily have place in our daily conversations.
Favorites can also change regularly, so they're easy to cycle through (especially things like current favorite song).
What follows are some ideas, but certainly not as creative as this could go!
Start with a question and let them expound with the answer.
What would you do if you had to live on a mountain without warning?
Pictures’ comedy “CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE.” a Warner Bros. " data-medium-file="https://scstylecaster.files.wordpress.com/2015/03/crazy-stupid-love-movie-image-ryan-gosling-emma-stone-02.jpg? That’s why figuring out what to talk about ahead of time with a list of good first date questions and conversation starters is so important. Are you more of a TV person, or do you prefer movies? Depending on the above answer, ask what they’re watching, or what they’ve seen lately.
Some great conversations have resulted from watching a movie, then talking about how we would deal in those situations. What would you do if there was a world-wide power outage? What would you do if someone stole your identity and you couldn't get it back? What would you do if a couple close to you passed away and you were left to raise their child(ren)? If you had to restart your life (relationships, education, etc.), where would you start? What would your life be like if you said yes to everything? If you were to be on a reality TV show, which one would you be on?
It's also good to align our goals with each other's and with God's direction. If you could be paid to do anything, what would you do? What would you most regret not having/doing/being in life? If you had to teach something, what would you teach? If money did not exist, how would you spend your days? Best case scenario, where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?
Talking about past memories is definitely bonding--seeing how past events have influenced them into the people they are today.
What is a habit you could start today that would help you reach your goals? How would your life be better if you could reach your top two goals? If you obtained/accomplished one major thing throughout your life, what would it be? Who was your best friend, and what was he/she like? What were some of your favorite things ten years ago? When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
trip and fall in front of 10 people you don't know, or say something embarrassing in front of 1 celebrity?
