Sometimes it can be difficult to have meaningful conversations with people, especially if they are someone you enjoy.
These are some tips from relationship experts that will help you have a meaningful conversation with your crush.
To avoid awkward first conversations with your crush, you should start by discussing something that interests you. Because there’s a topic to discuss, it will make the conversation flow easier for both you and your crush.
You must be knowledgeable about the subject.
Demonstrate genuine interest
Talking to someone we like can cause us to be nervous, mumble, or come across as distant. You might be dismissed by the other party as boring or uninterested.
Being interested in your topic is the best way to make yourself seem interesting. Do not ask “Where are your parents from?”. Ask questions that spark more conversation, such as “What’s it about this place that you love?” This will allow your crush to answer questions that lead to non-superficial conversations. It is important to start the conversation immediately.
Ask “how” and question “why”.
This will encourage your crushes to talk to you. It is best to avoid asking questions that are only answered by yes or no. This will make it difficult to continue the conversation. You would feel awkward if your crush had nothing to say after the conversation.
Sometimes it can be difficult to talk to someone when we are crushing on them. Sometimes our nerves take over. We stumble. We don’t know what to say, or how to respond. Although it can be difficult to approach your crush and begin a conversation, with the right guide you can.
These are three tips to help you start a conversation.
Use the right conversation starters
Without the right conversation starters, you won’t be able to start a conversation without your crush. Sometimes, you just ask questions and get a no or yes answer. Do not do this. Begin conversations with topics you are familiar with.
Do not overthink
Overthinking the exchange can cause anxiety. We get ahead ourselves. If you want to succeed, don’t get ahead of yourself. Do not overthink things and just follow the flow.
Find common ground
Finding common interests is the best way to make friends. If you share your passions, you will have plenty to talk about. Even if it’s a trivial thing like your favorite ice cream flavor, find common ground with your crush. It’s a good place to start.
Don’t let your nerves take over. It takes courage. It’s okay to be rejected. It’s important to remember to have fun and be you.
It all boils down to practice when we talk about getting in the right mindset to accomplish anything. You can learn from different experiences.
You’ve decided to go after what you want. But how do you practice talking to your crushes? How do you talk to your crush if talking to them is something you are afraid of? Instead of talking about your crush, you should be talking to other girls and guys who are less intimidating.
Create stories that you can easily relate to
Talking to your crush will be easier once you have broken the ice, made friends, and spoken to people you trust. You might think, “Okay, cool!” You might be thinking, “Okay, cool! I can approach them and speak to them but I don’t know what to tell them.”
It is important to have at least three stories that you are comfortable sharing with others. These stories should be topics you feel confident talking about and can be discussed in depth without being afraid or nervous.
You might find it helpful to treat your crush in the same manner you treat family members and close friends. It’s fine to talk to your grandmother and it’s okay to come up with something to say to her grandmother. Try pretending your crush is your grandmother.
Allow them to be accessed for a maximum 5 second period
Give yourself five seconds to approach your crush and say something. You’ll freeze up if you think about what you’re going to say.
One good trick is to count backward from 5 and then take no thought when you reach 1. There will be a million reasons why it is impossible. But if you focus on the countdown and just get ready to propel yourself forward, then you are already doing it.
It’s not about having the perfect conversation or knowing exactly what to say. It’s about getting comfortable approaching your crush.
Even if you only say “Hello, how’s it going?” or “hi,” that’s enough to be a success. You’ll feel more comfortable speaking to your crush if you have to go to stories you can trust and you try to keep it short. This is especially true when you’re nervous and don’t know what you should say.
This is possible if you have the right mindset. Don’t be afraid to take risks and do what you want.
Smile and make eye contact
When you are trying to get to know someone for the first time, a smile can go a long way. This makes you more approachable and helps to make the other person feel at ease. It is possible for your crush to start the conversation by smiling and making eye contact.
Begin with a question
Do not just say hello and let the other person handle it. You can start by asking a simple question that’s easy to answer. This will get the conversation started. Even the silliest question, such as “What is your favorite NYC pizza place?” can get the other person thinking. This conversation can quickly become a conversation about food, restaurants, and cooking.
Send or show a funny meme
Start a conversation with a humorous note to set the tone for your first conversation. It would be great if you could find a funny meme about your crush that is relatable.
Respond to an IG Story
This is a safe and easy way to show your interest without making it difficult for them. Let’s wait to see if they take the bait.
First, you need to be in close proximity. It’s difficult to talk with your crush from across the room. It’s awkward to chat with your crush online.
Crushes can sometimes be reciprocal and you may find your crush! Sometimes this part is easy. You’ll need to find an excuse to try again if this doesn’t work.
You may not even need one. Ever notice how your crush ‘appears’ right next to you? You can do it too. You can either take a seat near you or set up in a nearby spot. As if you were looking for a spot and it just happened, pretend that you are.
Relevance to the situation
Once you are there, you will need to have a reason for starting a conversation.
Comment on the environment. If you are in class, ask her how she did on the last test. Ask him what he will order if you are in line at the coffee shop. If you are waiting for the train or bus, ask her if she is going somewhere exciting.
This can be used to open or you can add it after your opener. It’s often helpful to offer genuine compliments. What is a genuine compliment? It is a compliment that you give to someone about something that you really like.
Is he truly a fashionista? He’ll be proud to tell you that he has the shortest hair you have ever seen. Did you just take one look at the girl and think “Wow!”? Tell her that you love her fashion sense and choose a piece you truly enjoy.
Instead of choosing items that your crush chooses, opt for things that your crush was born with. Do not comment on your facial features or hair type. However, you can comment on clothing choices, hairstyles, and neat accessories.
If all else fails, commenting on your crush’s “really lovely smile” is always a good idea. It is also my backup option for situations where nothing else comes to mind.
It is usually enough to have a great conversation with someone by opening up and then complimenting them.
Ask for help
Ask your crush for their help if you’re looking to start a conversation.
It’s a great way to get to know someone by asking them for their WIFI password in a café. If they are interested in you, they will gladly answer your questions. Another example is asking for a lighter and then following up with another question.
You can ask for a small favor such as help with your work problem. This gives you an excuse not to talk to them.
This eliminates the awkwardness of not introducing yourself. This can lead to a more natural conversation if you ask another question, such as “How long have your been working here?”
Start a conversation that is sincere and real with confidence
If you are insecure about someone you love, it is possible to be nervous or tongue-tied. Remember that there are many insecure people out in the world.
Confidence is a state of mind that can be achieved by being confident. Use humor to spark a conversation if you have a sense of humor. Joke about the present. You should be careful about using sarcasm, as it can put you in a bad light and create a poor first impression.
Sarcasm can make someone seem negative. Start a genuine and sincere conversation to attract the attention of those you are crushing on.
How can you do this? It’s easy enough.
Focusing on something you love is the best way to strike up a conversation. Find something that you like about your crush, and give it a compliment. A genuine compliment is a gift that everyone loves. This will make you stand out from the rest. You can make it casual or formal.
Say yes if you like her hair. Your hair looks great. This is your signature style. You should. “That jacket is very nice on you. “You have great taste.” Then smile for five seconds, and then make eye contact.
If they are interested in you, they will continue to talk. Ask questions during the conversation. Everybody loves to talk about their own lives!
Stay “at the moment.”
It is best to just be present at the moment when you start a conversation with your crush. This means that you don’t need to think too much about a conversation, but you can use what is available as a conversation starter.
Pay attention to what is happening right now
These two items are essential because they are all you need to have a conversation, no matter what your situation is. Here’s how they work together.
First, it is important to understand the surrounding environment. Your current location can be used as a topic for conversation. You don’t have to think up an icebreaker. Your location is your icebreaker.
Next, be aware of everything around you. This will help you to determine the topic.
Let’s take an example to show you how they can be combined. Let’s say we have a boring and generic location. It’s harder to strike up a conversation in boring places and everyone can easily see/find themselves in boring locations. Let’s take a grocery store as an example.
Imagine that you meet your crush at the grocery shop. There are two options for getting your crush’s attention when this happens. You have two options: you can say “hi” to your crush followed by a simple observation about your situation. Or, you can shout loudly to get their attention. If they look at you, it is a good opportunity to start a conversation.
Take, for example:
You can block an aisle with your trolley and yourself if you run into a crush. When they pass you, apologize and talk about how pathetic you are when you see things that catch your eye.
You can also comment loudly on the poor people who shop at so many grocery stores, especially if the crush is guilty. This will be a fun way to get to know each other and start a conversation.
If the crush has on you a store item that you strongly opinion about (preferably a positive, unique opinion), you can openly discuss what you think of them and why.
All the scenarios above have one thing in common: they all rely on what is currently happening in front of them. This is why the mantra “in the moment” applies to all three. It’s that simple and doesn’t require overthinking.
If you are nervous, you can give it a try on random strangers before you go out. These moments will help you to get comfortable so that you can be ready for your next encounter with your crush.
All of this being said, it can make a meeting with a crush a lot easier and less stressful if you know where your crush is most likely to be found. You don’t have to think about where you are going to be able to start a conversation.
