  1. […] thought-provoking questions, or, if you need some ideas, you can borrow from the list of conversation starters that I shared in my blog […]

  2. Are Jaye says:

    Little problem with these questions… so many of them are closed-ended. If you’re really trying to get a conversation going, it will be a lot easier if you ask questions (open-ended) that cannot be answered with a simple yes-no.

    • Haley Gray says:

      Many of them are specifically designed to be a quick yes-no, because they will start a conversation on their own. I’ve tried hundreds of different combinations, and these are the ones people actually respond to.

  3. Thanks for the conversation starters Haley 😀
