Ask These Questions The Next Time You Want To Ditch Small Talk

Are you tired of conversations about the weather, your last meal or your plans for the weekend? Do you want to dive deeper into conversations with loved ones and really get to know them - what makes them tick, their desires and dreams, and how they're really coping day-to-day?

That warm feeling of deep, human connection is so important in maintaining our overall emotional and physical health. In fact, studies have shown that people who have satisfying relationships are happier, have fewer health problems, and live longer. Once you begin to connect with your loved ones on a deeper level, you’ll be amazed at the doors that open for you and your relationships. 

Remember, everyone you will ever meet knows something you don’t and has their own story to share. 

We’ve rounded up 15 questions from our Conversations That Matter cards to help you turn small talk into real talk. It’s time to get deep and dive into thought-provoking conversations that will deepen your relationship with your significant other, friends, and loved ones. 


  1. What do you love the most about yourself?
  2. What is something you would like to work on?
  3. When was the last time you did something for the first time?
  4. What is your favourite memory growing up?
  5. Do you have any reoccurring dreams?
  6. What does a perfect day look like for you?
  7. What has been your biggest achievement this year?
  8. How do you think your energy projects to others?
  9. What is one problem you wish you could solve?
  10. When was the last time you broke a promise to yourself?
