20 {MORE} Long Distance Relationship Conversation Starters

One of my most popular posts here at 1200 Miles Away is my 20 Long Distance Relationship Conversation Starters post.  What I have found is that so many people are in long distance relationships, and keeping the conversation going after so many weeks can be daunting.  Beyond simply checking in on someone’s day, or saying, “I love you,” things can get rather stale, rather quickly.

So here are 20 {MORE} Long Distance Relationship Starters for you and your significant other to share – over the phone, over Skype, or even together over a candlelight dinner before watching Netflix.


  1. If you weren’t doing what you are now (job, career, college wise), what would you want to do instead?
  2. Are you a hunter or a gatherer?
  3. What was one piece of constructive feedback someone gave you that inspired you the most?  This could be job related, relationship related, or just life in general.
  4. If you could tell your life story in 6 words, what would they be?
  5. Would you rather be a famous actor, singer, or comedian?  What would you want to be known most for?
