We’ve all been there. You’re happily chatting away to someone, whether on a date or at a party, when the conversation stops. There’s an awkward silence, and most people want the ground to swallow them up.
This video shows how you can get yourself out of that situation. It helps you start new threads of conversation and keep things flowing without the awkward silences.
The tips are pretty simple. The one about asking follow-up questions such as “Why?” and “How?” can be especially effective, but only if you actually want to know the answer.
It could be argued that these tips mean you’ll be overthinking things. And that can be just as off-putting as not knowing what to say next. So my advice is to relax at all costs.
