What is a 'meaningful' conversation?

Naturally there are those heart-to-heart conversations where a couple exchanges their perspective on certain things both inside and outside of their relationship. I.E they explain how something makes them feel. (True men never run away from these.)
But seriously give me your definition an a topic that would make a 'meaningful' conversation?

It's any conversation that makes you feel closer to your partner/friend. You can talk about the silliest thing and grow closer. Emotions speak louder than words...meaning, even if you're talking about something frivolous your feelings are often conveyed. Does that make sense at all?

To me, a meaningful conversation is a conversation where in the middle of it, I feel as though we are having a "heart to heart" where I feel in my heart that I understand what the other person feels, how they thinks and vice versa. A meaningful Conversation, at the end leaves me thinking, but it also leaves me with a sense of understanding. Like I just found the answer to THE Age Old Question. I can't really explain it, but I know a meaningful conversation when I have it, it's like a weight has been lifted off my shoulder, one that I haven't even known I've been carrying.

Yeah I get it and to make things more simpler:

 
meaningful conversation = satisfaction (of some form) = In the heart (emotional) OR In the head (intellectual)
Moreover Meaning is produced:
when something is fulfilled
when something is satisfied
when something leads to other things being fulfilled
when one thing leads to the change from a bad state to a better state ( aka change in circumstances)
