Being an individual, you have this need to communicate to other people and socialize. However, there are people who find it difficult to make such communications. Based on statistics, US has around 15 million people who suffer from social anxiety. Even though you do not believe that you have the same condition, this article is still worth a read if you experience problems when invited into a party and not knowing anyone there. Below are some recommended ways for you, so you can successfully begin a conversation.

How to Kindle the Fire of Conversation

1. CONNECT WITH THE EYE

If you have not been good in making communications with other people, you are likely to feel queer when you are being communicated to by someone whom you do not know. So the secret there is to make an eye contact with that person. Eye contact is actually a means of asking permission from another person to say something. If that person also maintains eye contact, then show a smile. If you are given a smile in return, then that’s really awesome. There are instances where you can determine by this means if the person that you are trying to speak to has something else to do. One instance where you can figure out that the person is not ready to converse with you is when he is scrolling through an app on the phone. The same thing goes with those persons who have headphones on or are reading books.

2. BE A JOKER

In between persons who do not feel too comfortable talking with each other, cracking a joke is often an effective way to break the silence. If you know of some sensible joke in there, you can crack it down with someone with whom you want to begin a conversation.

3. HOW ABOUT COMPLIMENTS

Compliments are not the kind that you can belittle. If you want to start a conversation with a person, then you should not make it appear that you are a boring kind. By saying some compliments, you can break the pressure. More often than not, sincere compliments fulfill the work.

Conversation for some people is hard to start. But when you are backed with some cues and strategies, a conversation may no longer be that hard for you. Be mindful that compliments, jokes and eye contact can help you much if you are the kind who does not seem to begin conversations that easily.
