Conversation Starters

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

I am totally a person who can't stand awkward silences. I end up saying some really weird stuff just to fill the gaps in conversations. This is something that I am constantly working on. One thing that has helped me become a better conversationalist is learning to ask questions! It is brilliantly simple. People love to talk about themselves, and it is a topic we can all relate to. A single question can lead to an entire conversation. Plus it helps you get to know someone!

Here are a few of my go-to conversation starters. These are great to pull out when a conversation hits a low, or you are just on a long road trip and need something to talk about. 

 -Where is your most favorite place on earth?

-Star Wars or Star Trek?

-What super power would you choose? 

-What is your first memory?

- What is your coolest scar?

-Who is your best friend? 

-Who do you want to know better?

-What is in your wallet (or purse)? 

-What is your biggest pet peeve?

-What was the last movie you watched?

-What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

-Are you a spender or a saver?

-What books are on your bedside table?

-If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

-Front of the bus, or the back?
