It takes a lot of hard work to maintain a healthy relationship. Some say keeping love alive is a lot harder than finding love. While this is probably true it doesn’t mean that finding love is easy. It can be incredibly hard to find a girl to date or even be friends with when your normal circle of friends is all married or older. It is also tough to find the perfect match when your job is taking up a lot of your time. When you do actually find someone to meet up with the nerve, tension, and stress levels are high and you always end up feeling extremely self-conscious. One of the hardest parts of finding love is figuring out how to make that first approach. It’s hard to talk to strangers and even tougher to talk to strangers to whom you are attracted. Here are a few tips to help you start a conversation with the opposite sex that might just lead to a long term relationship.
Use a pickup line
A pickup line is the ultimate classic way to strike up a conversation with someone if you are interested in them. Pickup lines are a great way to break the ice when you have absolutely no idea of what to say. There are plenty of funny, sexy, romantic and even cute pickup lines out there that you can memorize and use whenever the perfect moment arises. Using a pickup line is as easy as walking up to someone and saying your perfectly memorized line. All you then have to wait for is the effect. A smile or laugh is a definite green light because it means that she is flattered, sweet and might just be single as well.
Compliment and ask a question
A good way to strike up a conversation is by giving the girl in your scope a genuine compliment. Your complement should also be followed by a question to lure out a conversation. Comment on her shoes, her jewelry or her hair and ask her about that particular item.
Make a pleasant comment about something
You are both out there in the same spot for a reason, whether it is to shop, watch a movie, and attend a concert or more. This is already a good clue as to what she likes to do. A good way to strike up a conversation is by making a positive comment on the movie, concert or anything else, followed by a related question.
If there is any way she needs help then offering assistance is a great conversation starter and a good way to lure her into a chat.
Set up a collision
If you have absolutely no idea on how to approach someone but are really interested then some tactic might be a good idea. Accidently bump into her or try to create some scenario where she will have to interact with you.
With a bit of luck, a lot of nerve and a bit of practice you will soon be able to start a conversation with just about any stranger and who knows where your quick introduction might lead. A conversation starter is a good way to meet new people and to start just about any conversation.
