    This is something I've been wondering for a while now. Possibly because its early in the sixth form holidays and I haven't been around friends for a few days. Now by no means am I boring/shy, I'm known to be talkative, funny and I've had a lot of interesting experiences.

    But in a relationship that is long term like marriage how the heck do you sustain a conversation for decades. Including a lot of a one on one time like going abroad evenings and things. Surely you tell them everything you know at some point.

    you just end up talking about your day at work, people you know, gossiping etc.

    its not all about the past. its about the present and future aswel.

    yh thats why you have to look at the character of your bf/gf before dating them instead of just appearance as well.
    I mean they become like a friend after while..
    the excitement decreases but you still want them around you.

    Surely that all gets boring after a while.

    Also bumping the thread because it took time to get approved.

    Sounds like your relationship is based upon conversation. You need to meet up more, and do things.

    Those things, too :sexface:

    There will always be conversation. I presume you and your family don't just sit there and stare awkwardly at each other? I know some do, though most find conversation.

    Current affairs, what you did today, what our friends and family are up to...there's always stuff to talk about. And if you don't want to talk, watch something on tv or go see a movie or a gig, and then talk about that after.

    See? Conversation is endless.

    Yep, after a while conversation does dry up in a relationship, so you just bonk instead :sexface:

    If they're not your best friend the relationship will die.

    so people should go out with their best friends?
    Thats a whole new topic..
    Then i guess all couples who've been married for so many years are best friends?

    If they’re not best friends I would think it must be a pretty miserable existence.

    Conversation in our family is usually quite dire. I seem to spend most of my time by myself when I'm in the house because of this :teehee:

    What you say is true though, though I've always wondered what happens after "everything's been said and done" too.
