Conversation Starters

Each month, we will briefly feature various topics that can serve as conversation starters for your e-mails with your e-Buddy. Our hope is that these suggestions will help to either start your conversation or add some new thoughts into an ongoing conversation.

WEEKEND UPDATES!

Sending your e-Buddy a quick e-mail is a great way to start off the week! Donít have anything to say? Why not ask your e-Buddy for a quick recap of their weekend?

Remember also that February has a couple of special days. Valentineís Day is Friday, February 14th, and, for all of you Americans out there, Presidentís Day is Monday, February 18th. And donít forget, 2008 is a leap year, and February 29th is a Friday.

You could say:

  • Did you do anything special this weekend?
  • Did you have any plans for Valentineís Day? Did you have a romantic date with your special someone?
  • How will you spend the Presidentís Day holiday? Do you have to go to work/school?
  • Itís a leap year! How do you plan to spend that extra day in February? Do you have anything special planned?

Have you had a great conversation with your e-Buddy about something?
Have some ideas for questions that get the conversation started?
Send your ideas for Conversation Starters to ebuddiescomments@bestbuddies.org.
