Talking to People / Creating Conversations

Most Important Rule: Be Interested In THEM
  • Find out their interests. All it takes is a little charm and a few good questions. Start off by finding their interests and ASK about them. If you know something about their interests you can add to the conversation, if you don't - it's not a big deal, you can learn from what they have to say. I have found that many people love talking about either themselves or their interests. Your job is to get them to start talking and hopefully the conversation goes well from there.
    • Good starter questions:
      • Hi, I'm xxxx, what is your name?
      • What are you studying in school?
      • What do you do for work?
      • What do you like to do in your free time?
      • Have you seen any good movies / listened to any good music lately?
It is difficult to talk to some people, it may be that they are shy. A majority of people are interested in meeting new people - keep this in mind. You just have to find a way to get information out of them, everyone is different but it comes easier with practice.
