So, you finally got the conversation going and you’ve made an acquaintance. Great job! But, how do you keep the conversation going?
Don’t stress! It’s actually easy to find things to talk about. If you focus the conversation on getting to know them, then it’s usually very inviting and the person you’re talking to will be willing to engage. But don’t let it be one-sided. Open up the floor for them to ask you questions or perhaps answer the same questions once they’ve given you an answer.
Sometimes, the answers to questions can spark a whole new conversation after. For example, if you ask someone what their favourite sport is, and it just so happens to be the same as yours, then you found something you can both talk about.
Over the next few days, I’ll be posting a question a day that are great conversation starters, along with my answer, to get you started.
