Sometimes, more often with strangers or unfamiliar people, it is difficult to find a common topic of conversation. To solve, and best of all, prevent this problem, you need to know the basic rules. Following them, you can easily find new topics of conversation and interest the interlocutor.
Make sure the conversation is supported by all participants. Monologues should be avoided when only one person speaks, most likely, he will tire the interlocutors.
Travel is a very interesting topic of conversation. Share your experiences and ask others where they've been. You can also ask about where the interlocutor plans or wants to go.
Play a game. Ask different questions in turn. They should be interesting and funny. But be careful and do not confuse the interlocutor with too frank questions, otherwise he may stop communicating with you.
Avoid trivial topics like the weather. It is interesting only to meteorologists.
Don't start talking about yourself unless asked. And if asked, do not mention too many names and surnames, this is unnecessary information that makes the story uninteresting. Also, according to the situation, analyze which facts from the biography can be told to this or that person, and which not.
Talk about your situation. For example, if you are sitting in a cafe, then you can discuss this institution, raise the topic of your favorite dishes and drinks, remember the places in which you and your interlocutor love to be.
Don't overwhelm with questions. Otherwise, your interlocutor will have the impression that he is being interrogated. Questions should imply a detailed answer. It is better if there is a declarative sentence in front of the question. For example: “I skated yesterday. Can you?".
If you come across a topic that you do not understand well, and your interlocutor is good, then ask him to tell a little about it. So you will learn something new, and the narrator will receive positive emotions from the fact that something is useful and listen to him attentively and with interest.
Topics in the course of the conversation will arise by themselves, the main thing is that people are interested in each other and there is a desire to continue communication.
