Date Night Sentence Starters for Married Parents

Have you been married for years and been on countless dates? Do you and your partner keep up on the daily happenings at home and work and so are left with little fresh to talk about after ordering appetizers?

We’ve got the perfect thing to breathe new life into date night conversation for married parents. They’re called sentence starters, and they can quickly lead into deeper, and more authentic and connecting conversations.

On your next date night, ask your partner if they’re willing to play a game where each of you says a sentence starter out loud and completes it however the speaker wishes. You can choose an amount of time and set a timer on your phone, or you can allow for as much time as each person wants. The only rule is that the listener can’t interrupt but must listen silently until the speaker is finished.

Here are our favorite sentence starters for date night. Pick your favorites and tell us how it goes!

  • I feel really nourished when we . . .
  • I love the way you . . .
  • One thing I’ve learned about myself in this relationship is . . .
  • One thing I’ve learned from you is . . .
  • One thing I would have done differently in our relationship is . . . One way I hope to grow closer to you is . . .
  • I feel your support most when . . .
