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.

November is here! The sun is setting earlier and with the cooler weather comes sweater season and all other sorts of fun, fall festivities. From pumpkins to pilgrims, there are plenty of great topics to inspire your weekly e-mails to your e-Buddy. In addition to the autumn holidays, baseball season just came to a close, and football teams have been running and passing their way into the end zone for months. Whether you are a sports fanatic or just want to support your e-Buddy's love of the game, there are many sports topics to discuss over the next few months.

Here are some questions you could ask your e-Buddy:

  • Has it been cool where you live? Do you have a favorite fall sweater?
  • Did you do anything special for Halloween? Did you wear a costume?
  • Have you done any fall gardening? Did you plant any fall veggies?
  • Where are you having Thanksgiving dinner? Are you traveling far to get there?
  • Do you like to cook? Is there a special dish that you make for Thanksgiving dinner?
  • I'm thankful for __________. What are you thankful for?
  • Did you watch the World Series? Who did you want to win?
  • My favorite NFL and college football teams are __________. Do you have any favorite teams?

Have you had a great conversation with your e-Buddy about something?
Have any ideas you'd like to share?
