How do you start a conversion with someone you don't really know?
Whatever a situation is, relate an initial conversation with something you take from what's happening.
Mention the weather. Everyone likes to talk about it.
I first introduce myself and ask questions about them. People always enjoy talking about themselves.
Hi there, so what do you think about abortion, gay marriage, politics, religion, gun control, the economy, and nuclear weapons?
I usually just talk about something random, usually bring up something I'd think they'd have an interest in.
Just say hi and follow the conversation where it goes. If it goes to favorite colors, let's talk about colors, if it's about chemistry let's talk about chemistry, basically whatever.
"Hey! How are you? Where are you from? Are you single? (If she answers yes) What's your name, number and address?"
Don't worry guys I don't actually do this. :)
I usually don't.
"Wanna try a cool free app?"
This is why I don't have friends.
You say hello. Unless your at a urinal, in which case you stay quiet and keep your eyes on your own junk.
Haha I love this answer
You say hello.
Other than that I'd need more context. Like what's the situation? Are you at a party? Are you at a bar? Are you just walking down the street?
See Tlaney comment train below :)
"Hi. How are you?"
I came up with it all by myself.
Usually I end up complimenting them on something they are wearing..
Or consistently insult them...
I actually do do that in real life too if I get the vibe that they would get that I was just messing with them lol
But that's for acquaintances, not total strangers lol
Depends on the context and whether we're talking about somebody you're attracted to or just somebody you want to socialize witb.
So for now, I'll just pick one. A guy is sitting under a tree. You want to be friendly. Walk up and ask, "What's up?"
He mumbles not much. Staying energetic and positive, you try again: "So, you propping the tree up so it doesn't fall over?" He looks a bit puzzled and says I guess. You say, "Can I help?" He says knock yourself out, and you sit. Take it from there.
Now you give me a scenario.
Say in a classroom, with people just hanging around.
Then kick off with a question about the day's lesson or the homework assignment. Even if you know the answer, letting somebody help you is a great ice-breaker!
High school or college class? If college asking where they went to high school is always a good convo starter. If high school, tlaney's got you covered! :)
There's no formula. You open your mouth and start speaking.
You mean we can't use mathematics? Boo... :P
The same way you start a conversation a formal conversation with someone you do know.
It varies from person to person. Any specific example?
