Being a shy person doesn’t help when you want to start a conversation in person, and it surely doesn’t help online, either. However, you don’t have to worry about it. Starting a conversation may be hard at first, but eventually you get better at it. Till you improve your skills, we’re going to show you some easy ways that will help you start a conversation in a web chat.
- Forget the Standard Messages
Chats are very crowded places, believe it or not, so if you think you’re the only person trying to talk to someone, you’re probably wrong. That being said, you must step up your game in order to grab the attention of the girl/boy you want to talk to. Forget all the standard messages. If you’re a girl, try some pickup lines with the boy. Usually it’s the boys who use the pickup lines so that will definitely grab his attention. On the other hand, if you’re a guy try to personalize the messages as much as possible.
- Ask Personal Questions
Now that you have made the first move it’s time to keep the conversations going. People love talking about themselves, so try to ask him/her as many questions as possible. Avoid questions that have single word replies and try to ask questions that lead to other ones. Think of some fun questions and you both might end up having some great time!
- Use Information Wisely
Most people have some short descriptions on their profiles. That can help you a lot, so use that information wisely. While most guys will compliment a girl about her looks, with the information you have you can start a conversation about something that actually is on her interest and she will definitely reply. Same advice goes to all the girls out there!
- Be Funny
Everyone loves a funny person. If you can make someone laugh, he/she will definitely be interested and keep the conversation going. Try to start the first message with a joke about something you notice you both have in common. But be careful and avoid being too cheesy. You know what they say: “If you can make her laugh, you can make her do anything”, so use this “weapon” wisely.
- Compliment the Other Person
Everyone loves compliments so if you manage to start the conversation with one, it would be great. Don’t try to overdo it though, keep it simple and natural, otherwise the other person will think you’re lying.
