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.

Summer is coming to an end and school is back in session. Some of you may not currently be in school, but this time of the year always takes me back to the smell of new crayons and freshly sharpened pencils. I remember the unbearable anticipation that kept me awake the night before school began. I was so very excited I could hardly stand it. With that in mind take this opportunity to ask your e-Buddy a few school related questions. Here are just a few to help you in your conversations:

  • Are you currently in school?
  • What was your favorite grade in school and why?
  • Who is/was your favorite teacher? What did he/she do to make them your favorite?
  • Are you or were you involved in school related activities such as sports or choir?
  • What is/was your schools mascot?

Have you had a great conversation with your e-Buddy about something?
Have any ideas you'd like to share?
Send your ideas for Conversation Starters to ebuddiescomments@bestbuddies.org.
