Without doubt, one of the most challenging parts of modern life is talking to other people. Being able to talk with others is tough; most of us find it quite hard to come across well when talking to someone for the first time. Even people with good, natural social skills can find it hard to put themselves across in the right manner.
Does this sound like you? Then these simple tips and tricks might help you to start improving your conversational skills to get a partner.
- Lose the Chatter. One of the main mistakes people make when trying to talk to a new potential partner is in their tone. If you come across as needlessly strong or as if you have some kind of routine that you are trying out, you will likely struggle to find any kind of success. Instead, lose the chatter and you can spend more time thinking about how to come across as a normal person. Remember, the secret to getting with someone is to treat them like a human, not someone who should have some kind of pre-programmed comedic reaction to a joke you have practice a thousand times in the mirror.
- Stop Treating It Like an Exam. A common mistake most people make is that they go into any kind of talk with a new person with the intention of treating it like an exam. They come at the person with a kind of begging feel; and we all know how unappealing someone begging is. Don’t talk to her like you are trying to found if she is the ‘one’; talk to her like she is a human being you have just met. Lose the 20 questions and the judgements.
- It’s Not A Race. The worst thing is going into talk to someone new and trying to give them your greatest hits all at one. It’s not a race; there is no reason for you to try and rush into impressing them. Instead, take the time to work with this new person and talk to them organically; many people try and fit in a few funny stories or try and make them wet themselves with laughter on the first meet; you don’t’ need to be the funniest person ever to ‘win’ here, that isn’t how this works.
- Taking The Load. When talking to a new person, since you were interested, you feel like you need to do all the leg work. This sets a dangerous precedent, and the best way to get over that is to make it like a normal conversation. If she does not seem too interested in reciprocating conversation; move on. The more heavy lifting you need to do now, the more likely it will become commonplace later on down the line.
