How to talk to strangers
Whether you’re looking to make a new friend,
getting a date or recruit someone into that cool new cult you just joined,
It probably means that you’re going to have to talk to a stranger.
Here is how to start and maintain a conversation with someone you don’t know.
Step One: Break the ice
One simple way to accomplish this is by giving a compliment.
Hey cool shirt!
Oh! Thanks!
But don’t be weird about it.
Step Two: Keep the conversation going by adding information to what was just said.
Hey cool shirt!
Oh! Thanks!
I stole it from a hobo.
By adding new information,
you’ve given the other person something new to respond to.
Step Three: Continue adding information until you find a common interest.
I love stealing stuff from hobo.
Yeah! The other day I just stole this whole shopping cart from this guy.
At this point you should be off to the races and the conversation should start flowing naturally.
Step Four: If you ever find yourself at a loss for what to say next,
try asking a question
So where do you work?
Have you always hated hobos?
What’s your least favourite thing about Hobos?
Have you ever killed a Hobo?
Hey what’s your social security number?
Who let the dogs out?
Did you ever feel like a unicorn trapped in a human body?
Do my nipples feel hard?
Questions help to rekick start a conversation and take it to new places.
Step Five: To solidify the success of your interaction,
make sure to let the other person know that you’re having a good time.
Easy ways to do this include smiling and leaning in when the other person speaks.
But again, don’t be weird about it.
Congratulations! You’re doing it!
You’re having a conversation!
Doesn’t it feel exhilarating?
I mean not as exhilarating as stealing a pair of shoes of a sleeping Hobo
but still pretty great!
Hurray! You did it!
