I believe cultivating a gentle, loving acceptance of one's self takes tremendous courage because the path is often painful. It's not for the faint of heart.

I don't have a boyfriend but I do have a husband who is very caring and understanding. I feel as if I can talk to him about EVERYTHING. He don't always give feed back but he's an excellent listener. I am glad that I am able to go to him with ANYTHING. Even if the conversation is out of his comfort zone, for instance menstrual problems, he still listen and even try to give advice.

That would depend on your relationship, However try and get to know each other more and learn his favorite things and what his goals in life are etc. 😀

Watch a movie together and look for plot holes or really fun parts that have some interesting motivations. Afterward you can discuss these and see what he thinks was happening.

Anything that you're comfortable with, is the short answer. However, it's important to note that guys aren't always open to talking about heavy, emotional stuff. That doesn't mean that you shouldn't try, but just be prepared for him to not engage in the conversation as much, perhaps, as you would like.

I think that it is important to really evaluate you and your boyfriends bond. Talk about what you feel comfortable talking about! I am sure he will do the same!

Comunication is vital in a relationship. it keeps it together. always be honest and open with your feelings. keeping things to yourself can be harmful if it is affecting your relationship. talk to him on a daily or weekly basis about your feelings. its the bond that keeps you together. you should be able to talk to him about anything that's on your mind. hes the one person you trust your life with.

Your boyfriend is suppose to be your best friend 1st before a lover, therefore you should be able to discuss anything and everything with him. And both parties should be open for discussion and advise.

You should always feel free and confortable to discuss and issue that you want. If you feel uncomfortable you should talk it over with someone you trust

I think if you and your boyfriend have a steady relationship you should be able to talk about anything with each other. If you are both new to the relationship then sometimes it is hard to think of things to talk about, but mutual interests are always a good topic. As you get to know each other I am sure that more conversations and inside jokes will grow and you will be able to talk about anything

Possible topics may incude your hobbies, likes and dislikes, favourite things (movies, books, foods, etc.), future goals, dream jobs, pets, family, travelling, future dates.... The possibilities are endless!

I talk about anything that comes to mind that would not offend or hurt him. I try not to bombard him with my future tripping thoughts and anxieties. I pick and choose which are most important to the success of our relationship. Open communication makes for the best relationships.

Try to find common interests that will allow you to both to get involved in the conversation. However, remember that if you don't share common interests, it can be a brilliant opportunity to learn more about your boyfriend's hobbies, skills or interests!

You can talk to him about anything and everything. Be honest and share your thoughts to him. Talk to him about your joy, your pain, your struggle and even something to laugh about. A man that listens to you and understands what you are going through is a man that really loves you and cares about you and your well-being. He is happy when you are happy. He is sad when you are sad. He will be your strength when you are weak. Just remember that when he does all that for you, reciprocate the love that he shows for you.

Try to start things out light-hearted and then start talking about shared interests. After you break the ice it gets easier to talk about almost anything.

You can always talk about your goals for the future; where you want to travel, what career you'd love, where you would want to live, etc. This could open the door to knowing each other more and understanding what you both want out of life. It can lead to being closer and more in tune with each other's thinking.

I'm newly single. So currently, I'd prefer to talk about nothing with my ex, maybe focus more on myself.

Its always good to share what has happened during yoir day. Things that you have in common ....for example if you are at school or work together that is a shared interest that you can talk about. Ask him one or two questions to show you want to know more about him...but most of all try to feel relaxed....you will naturally find conversation ...or enjoy the quiet moments if you feel relaxed in each others company.

Talking with a boyfriend in the young age is really difficult, because you are not sure if you want to tell him more personal stuff about yourself. In the age of 18 or more you can step by step tell him more about yourself, but sometimes you have to wait. You can ask him if you are good looking, or ask him about your style - does he like it or is there something that you can change. Let him give his oppinion. You can talk about sports if you are both interested in some. You can go and visit different cities or villages together, take pictures, and talk about what you like about this new city/village. You can allways talk about what your favourite hobbies are! Be sure to help your partner in need! You can train, run together in the park, and keep a fit figure. Training with a partner is always fun! I hope that this helped you! And don't forget that talking with a boyfriend, who really loves you, is like talking with a really best friend!

You should be able to talk about anything with him. You should trust him enough to be open and honest

Try to bring up things that he likes to talk about, then the conversation may lead to things that you want to talk about.

Just talk about everything you did during the day! If something happens to me, even the stupidest or silliest situation, I try to remember it so that I can let him know! You have no idea of how many topics of conversation you can find starting from this :)

He is your boyfriend. You should be able to talk to him about anything and everything. If you run out of things to talk about, try looking up random questions to ask him. That is what I do and I always find out more about him.

A good relationship is based on trust and communication. With person you love and care about you should be free to talk about anything, from small things to serious ones. If you are sure that this is the right person, person you feel comfortable with, then talk with him about everything that is on your mind like work, family.. Just share with him good and bad moments of your life.

Talk about the things that both of you can relate to such as; asking his favorite sports, color, food, hobbies, and his dreams. Sharing dreams with each other will help the both of you to become open to each other. You can also talk about his experiences, about the happiest event that ever happened to his life. In this case, you can also open up to him, and get to know his other more.

Now, I have no right to answer this but I still will. What can't you talk about with your boyfriend? He's your boyfriend for a reason!

You can talk with him about anything you want, i think you should be confidant to just talk about anything; dreams, aliens, what you did today, your favourite foods, where you would like to travel, your problems, your highlights, your family, life, what you like about him etc etc hope this helped! :D
