Running out of things to talk about? (8)

1 Name: Secret Admirer : 2006-05-28 11:54 ID:qd+ehAnb

Often times I find myself in a friendly relationship with girls and they come up to me and talk quite often but then a lot of the times I run out of things to say and the conversation just sort of drops. This happens to me quite often. Is it possible I am just forever doomed?

Yep :(

Before you get to the point where you have no more conversation, end the talk. You have to go, you have to (insert random BS here), just always better than "So...".

As for having something to talk about, pay attention to everything she says, and try and read between the lines. Yeah, tall order I know, but it has to be done if you hope to talk to them on a regular basis.

I have the same problem. It really suxx. But at least girls do come to me sometimes :) I found that often, if you have nothing left to talk about, you ask them question and let them do the talking. If you listen closely, you may find cues to ask more questions, or cues to talk yourself. I find it real hard to do. Also, there's the problem of turning the conversation in the wrong lane *_*

Depending on how 'serious' a person she is, you can always ask a big, important question like 'What do you think about <topic x>' or some general thing about her opinion on an aspect of human nature, relationships, etc (if they aren't philosophically-inclined, this could scare them away!). Or ask them about their day, weekend, plans for future holidays, etc -- people like to talk about themselves, and like >>4 said, this can give you a wealth of possible conversation topics.

i find the problem only exists if I am too worked up on making it work with a girl.

I've found the less I am thinking of "keeping the conversation" with the girl, the more I find myself talking and keeping the conversation relevant with the comments we make...

Don't just react, add a little something extra. Examples:

I got a bad grade in xyz.
