Conversation Starters Can Save Your First Date
Conversation starters can literally save your life on a first date.
Well, as you know, going on a first date can be very scary and intimidating.Our minds are overcome with fear and insecurities and we cave in to those emotions.
We're scared of being rejected, we're afraid of failure, we're nervous about saying the wrong thing at the wrong time and we're anxious about what our date will think of us.
All these anxieties are totally human and completely understandable - but they produce devastating results: they paralyze us and greatly inhibit our ability to behave normally and confidently like we do with our family and with our closest friends.
Our personal fears lead us to the most uncomfortable situation where we feel a terrible lack of confidence, all stressed out, angry and frustrated.
The bottom line is that we're doomed to end up in the most annoying, embarrassing and even humiliating situation, which we all know as that "awkward silence".
Believe it or not, most of us do have the capacity to carry on a fluid, easy-going and enjoyable conversation with people we have known for years - so, with the right approach, it shouldn't be any different with the woman we're on a first date with.
And the right approach is? conversation starters!
Preparing a list of topics and questions that you can use on the first date can do wonders for your dating skills.
When you have an arsenal of conversation starters - it's very easy to keep the conversation going.
You always have something to say, you develop a lively conversation like there's nothing to it, you're not nervous, "stuck" or "blocked" and you can avoid the awkward silence disaster pretty easily.
