Conversation Tips: Things to Talk About this Weekend

It's been a crazy and sometimes volatile week in the worlds of politics and pop culture.  And yet, still, it can be hard to know what to talk about on a date.  Which topics are safe and which ones are best to stay away from?

Here are a few things that might make for interesting conversation on your date this weekend.

  • The protests in Egypt are a huge story. Have you been following the situation?  
  • The Superbowl is just a week away. Do you like football? Who are you routing for?  
  • The Oscars nominations were just announced. Have you seen any/all of the nominated films? 
  • What's this scary/almost funny story about Taco Bell?  Is it beef?  Should we care? 

Remember, as always, to listen to your date's answers and ask follow up questions.

It might be a good idea to stay away from more highly charged topics like the President's State of the Union speech. If you do find yourself in a spirited discussion, remember that there is a fine line between a debate and an argument.
