Stop talking & just listen to me?

 

When talking to strangers it can be a bit hard knowing what to say, when and how at times. 

 

But let me give you a tip my friend; If you don’t know what to say in a conversation, try simply reflecting back what you hear from the other person. 

 

If a new friend at work is upset about a project going wrong, say something like “It sounds like you are really upset about your feedback on that project, paraphrase what they said about their thoughts & feelings about the project.”   If needed then suggest “what things can I help you with?”

 

Often people simply want to know that their feelings are acknowledged rather than be offered solutions to their problems. 

 

Doing so also relieves you of the pressure of trying to think of what to say next.

Do you find it easy to talk to strangers? Shoe In Technique

The best advice for starting a conversation is actually quite simple—focus on the other person or say something light-hearted. People love talking about themselves.

Comment on Something Personal

Often, the person with whom you are trying to start a conversation will have some unique aspect of themselves. Perhaps it is an item of jewellery, an unusual shirt, or maybe even a tattoo; something distinctive that tells a story about the person. Items like this give you a starting point for conversation.

 

Say something like:

  • Love your hair… is it from Ali Express?

 

  • Girl where did you get them shoes from?

 

Be sure to avoid anything too intimate as a starting point or you’re likely to offend the other person. 

After you receive a response, have something else to say that will give you a common platform on which to build a conversation and a relationship.

Remember, the goal is not to say the perfect thing or come across a certain way, but to open the door for more conversation.
