Just be familiar with what you want to know and what you want to share.If there is a connection, things will fall together on their own.For example, even if I didn’t have a good story to share I could still counter one of their horror date stories with one that a previous date had shared with me.“That’s nothing”, I would say, “one girl I met recently had been called by a guy she had just met three times before she even got home! No one ever took offense that I was sharing others’ stories: the truth is, everyone, myself included, just loves to hear that they’re not the only ones struggling.It is important to be able to have light-hearted conversations to prevent your date from becoming too impersonal.You should have fun talking with your date…even if that means intentionally planning on talking about some of these areas.A final good small-talk topic I found was telling self-deprecating, but funny, stories.These types of conversations managed to turn a few uncomfortable dates into comfortable, or at least bearable, ones.
However, the more I dated, the more qualities I identified as something I desired.
This refers to parts of your conversation where you are discovering if who you have just met has what you are looking for.
This is important to mention because you are looking for particular qualities whether you’ve admitted it or not.
I found this made for excellent small-talk and I also found that once I started, my dates had stories that they were excited to share.
There were frequently “My dates have been worse than yours” competitions that were both friendly and fun.
