Ah, that feeling when your text notification goes off and you see your crushes name! You start the conversation with gusto, but then silence strikes.
What’s worse than this? The awkward moment when it happens face to face.
If you can keep a conversation going, then maybe you can set up a date? There’s only one sure way to find out!
Hot Tips to Keep a Conversation Going
Okay, lovers, let’s turn you into savvy linguists! Read on to learn how to keep things alive while chatting with your crush.
Do not turn this into an interrogation. If you start questioning them without a natural flow of conversation, then things will feel uncomfortable fast.
Instead, ask followup quests after they tell you something interesting. You can also suggest a question game that will prompt fun conversations without feeling like a cross-examination.
Make a list of fun questions, like:
- If you could travel anywhere in the world right now, where would you go and why?
- What’s your favorite meal?
- What were you like as a kid?
Use followups with these as well. This will help you get to know the real them while texting or talking to your crush.
This does not mean naughty talk. Simply bring up something you are passionate about.
When people feel passionate about something, be it their job, animal activism, cooking, or anything else that lights their fire, they appear more interesting, driven, and attractive. It lights you up like fireworks, and you will not run out of things to say.
When texting your crush, keep yourself armed with a solid meme collection. This will say something when the quiet hits, without making you look clingy.
As you get to know them more, try to collect memes based on their interests. Even though you did not make the meme, you get to share some of the humor creds by sending it. Everybody loves people who make them laugh.
Do you know who holds the most interesting conversations? Interesting people.
This means that you should create conversations you can have with them by culturing yourself in the moments you are not talking or texting! How?
Aim to read one book a month. Then, you can make literary references when appropriate and suggest books they may like.
Attend events, like concerts, cultural festivals, expos, etc. These experiences will provide you with interesting things to say, and open it up for you to invite them if they show interest.
Watch documentaries. You will learn the most random and fantastically weird stuff to share with your crush and give you something to suggest if they bring up a certain topic.
