What is a conversation starter?

A conversation starter is a type of question that prompts deeper discussion. Use the question to start a conversation with another person. For example, opening a conversation with "What is the meaning of life?" This question can spark a great conversation with any person. And often leads to more discussion outside of the initial prompt. The answer to the question often leads to somewhere deeper, more intellectual, and greater than where the initial prompt started.

When should I ask a conversation starter question? Any time. It's a great way to have fun with family, friends, love interests, and more. A car ride. A weekend sleepover. Whenever the time presents itself with another person. Have a little bit of fun and ask away!
