this way you can do the activity, and talk about whatever comes along..
So my boyfriend and I met about 5 years ago when we used to work together & have been dating exclusively for about 2 months now.
Everything is great, hes really good to me..only problem is that we are both really shy/quiet people so sometimes when we're together its like pulling teeth to actually have a conversation.
And in time, you'll get more comfortable with each other. Even if you have known each other for a while, the transition from friends to more than friends can be awkward or whatever.
So just give it some time to become natural Thanks for all the replies.
He agreed and we both kinda came to the conclusion that this might take awhile for us to shake off, which is fine cuz this is a learning process for both of us.
I have learned this about shyness and struggling with conversation: Even the most apparently mundane topic can lead and link you to more and more conversation.
The suggestions of board games and things like that are great and I think that would really help us connect more.
I told him last night that we need to have more one on one bonding nights (doing art together, going on mini vacations, etc).
well unfortunately i can't help, because this is issue i often have...
