I want him to like me and I want to be interesting and keep him happy. I don't want to bore him to death.

I have found that many seniors enjoy talking about the way they used to do things. It's fascinating to hear about how people managed long ago with so few modern conveniences. They also seem to love talking about their families, pets, schools and accomplishments. Being a good listener and nice usually causes people to be drawn to you.

People love to talk about themselves. At 88 y/o, I'm sure he has seen and done a lot. Ask about his life, family, military background and career. I love to ask for stories about growing up and relationships, where they met their spouse and how life was when they were young adults. Have fun building a new relationship!
