Conversation Starters

Milspouse Conversations™ hosted our first in-person event, Saturday, September 14 at Fort Belvoir in Metro D.C. Our main focus was to start conversations.  The turn out was lovely, and we are already planning our next event in October. Trust us. You do NOT want to miss it!

One important step in building new relationships, connecting and growing is to start conversations with others.

A delicious breakfast kicked the event off

Find A Simple Common Denominator - Ice Breaker

Our first event was about introductions. Introductions are important in building relationships, and getting any conversation started. We started simple.  

  • Your name
  • Favorite color

Something as simple as someone's favorite color can get a conversation going. And it did.  

With tummies full and the introductions behind us, it was time for some fun and connections.  

More fun and chatting by attendees.  Starting conversations and building new relationships
