How to Kindle the Fire of Conversation

1. MAKE EYE CONTACT

As a person who is not used to a lot of speaking and socializing, it can really feel strange on your part when somebody suddenly talks to you in the middle of the crowd. Sometimes, making an eye contact with that person can help you ease the uncomfortable feeling that you have inside. Eye contact is actually a means of asking permission from another person to say something. If that person also maintains eye contact, then show a smile. If you can see that the other person also tries to smile again, then that will be really great. There are instances where you can determine by this means if the person that you are trying to speak to has something else to do. One instance where you can figure out that the person is not ready to converse with you is when he is scrolling through an app on the phone. The same thing with persons who are reading books or wearing a headset.

2. CRACK SOME JOKES

Conversation for some people is hard to start. But with some cues and hints, you an potentially fight the pressure. Always remember, eye contact, jokes and compliments do work with conversations.
