Everyone, both sender and replier, was happier with the interaction.

Maybe set the rules of discussion upfront and get your partner to agree that tonight you will only ask questions and talk about things you are truly interested in. Because no one does that anymore.

We could not talk or talk forever and still find things to not talk about.
