Trying to make conversation with someone can be quite hard, and even more strenuous if it’s someone you’re meeting for the first time in your life. It’s very awkward, and you might not know what to talk about. We have some topics which will bring an end to all those awkward silences and make you an interesting person.
Asking for a helping hand
You can always ask the other person questions which can benefit you and can even make the conversation flowing. When a person asks you an informative question, you can help them with your knowledge, and this can bring in other topics as well. This will create a natural bond between the two of you, and you will feel your defenses lowered.
For example, if you’re buying a mobile phone, you can always ask someone sitting near you about their views on that specific model; this can be an exciting conversation, and they might advise you some genuine material that can prevent you from wasting your money on a product which is not worth it.
Compliment someone other than their looks
Instead of being basic and complimenting someone’s eyes or any other physical feature, you should consider praising something which portrays their personality; it can even be a book or a pen! This is a natural, and classy way of keeping the conversation running since the other person would get the hint that you don’t want the chat to end. Some people use this tactic to get something they want, either for business or social reasons. This can even help calm down social anxiety.
If someone is at the same place as you, it’s probably because they have interests similar to yours. You shouldn’t ever hesitate to ask the other person questions this way you will be able to find out your mutual interest. For example, if you’re at a restaurant you can always ask the other customers opinion on certain dishes, and why they chose to come to that particular restaurant. This will increase your knowledge about that particular area and will help you make new contacts.
Simplicity and Boldness
In the world we live in, everyone is busy on their phones which is a big turn off, to be honest. Simplicity is always the key to everything, a simple hello with a bright smile can be a very bold move. This gives the other person a hint that you’re interested to talk to them or to get to know them better. This hello can make someone’s day and guess what? You will always get a hello back; but if you don’t, don’t think about it because you don’t want to date an impolite person anyway. Start simple, and then take things to higher levels.
