Hence, it's important to keep your romantic relationship with your girlfriend alive by engaging her in conversations where she feels heard, seen, and understood. You need to be a good listener who poses the right questions and is understanding and compassionate enough to deal with honest responses.

So, if you’re wondering how to keep things fun or see whether your future goals align, it might be wise to ask your girlfriend some relevant questions. Here is a list of questions to ask your girlfriend based on the mood and conversation objective.
