How to Keep a Conversation Going?

By Jack Hsieh:

Everyone hates an awkward silence, especially on a first date. People may get nervous trying too hard to sound interesting. The key to success for keeping a conversation alive is to be dynamic. What do I mean by that?

  1. don’t give dead end answers
  2. always ask questions about them
  3. fill awkward silence with inviting body language

For example, if the girl asks you about, “How was your trip?” Instead of answering by saying how good it was or how awesome it was, you can go into detail. What I mean by going into details is that, you can talk about a certain event that after there, or a location you liked.

So, in conclusion, treat her like one of you bros and speak like one. But be more sincere.
