List of Conversation Topics

One of the most frustrating things I have ever experienced around a girl, is if I and her run out of things to talk about. Since you found this post I assume you know what I’m talking about, and maybe you are interested in learning how to avoid awkward silence.

I’m thinking about the teeth pooling moments where the awkward silence just takes over the situation, you are just sitting their smiling while desperately in your mind scrambling for something just mildly interesting say, but you just can think of anything, you mind is a total black out, you can’t even remember your own name at this point.

Finally you hear yourself saying something completely uninteresting, like: “sooo.. do you come here often”, she says “no its my first time!” And then the conversation dries up once again, the awkward silence start to eat you both up from the inside until one of you can’t stand the social pressure and thus make up some excuse to leave.

It’s a horrible horrible situation to be in, I have thus decided to make this cheat sheet of interesting conversation topics to ensure, that you will never run out of things to say again.

You are not alone; many guys have asked me about “which conversation topics are the best to talk about on a first date with girl” all us secretly fear moment of awkwardness.

My personal list of Conversation Topics:

Talk about Past Experiences:

  1. Mayor events: Current events or event that has made a huge impression on you: 9/11 is something that everyone can relate to, but it’s not going to evoke positive feelings in her, strive to keep it light, trading concert experiences and other mayor events can be a great source of conversation.
  2. Past dates: I would not recommend that you talk about you last girlfriend or some girl you never got over, but I my experience I can be fun to talk about her and yours past worst date experience, blind dates gone wrong, embarrassing moments of awkward silence and good stuff like that. Those are things most girls can relate to and a good topic. You can also talk about the whole dating scene, discuss funny pickup lines which ones she has received and which one that worked.
  3. Past funny experiences: Tell her about the last time that something out of the ordinary happen to you.
  4. Vacations: Find out how she is adventurous. Find out if she like metropolitans or wilderness traveling.
  5. Future Plans: Ask her what she want to be when she grows up (even if she an adult), ask her about her dreams and ambitions. Ask her what she likes about her current job, ask her how she would like that job to evolve, would she like to be a manager on day.
  6. Hobbies: Ask her what kind of art she does. Talk about yours and her passions, what are you learning right now, what activities make you the most excited.

Talk about Current Experience:

  1. Talk about “the big blue elephant in the room” – If you run out of things to say, and you feel there an awkward silence, just call it out by saying: “Isn’t it awkward when you feel like you have nothing to say?”

Talk about Personal Preferences:

  1. Tell her about your passions, what do you love doing? Find out what she loves doing.
  2. Tell her what you like in a woman and ask her about what she is looking for in a man.
  3. What she does for fun, her favorite café,
  4. Personal taste
  5. What does she like/not like about her self

  40. Which movie/book are you ashamed to admit you love?
  41. What is the one book you think everyone should be required to read?
  42. What books have you read more than once?

But Be careful – Don’t ask too many questions! 

Never turn a conversation into a interview, don’t just ask one question after another, instead start sharing what you find interesting, what you have been wondering about lately. When you are sharing you own perspective on things the “principle of reciprocity” will inspire her to give her point of view on whatever you just told her. Try to offer your own perspective on the subject of a question/topic before you ask her about that question, she will often feel inspired to return her opinion and yhus you don’t have to ask the question. Finally, remember that natural conversations include pauses, so don’t freak out if you are not talking constantly, remember that conversation should be a two way street, so It´s not all up to you.

Oh and btw – another great source conversation is to reuse old conversation topics! I mean strings of conversation that you have had success with before, You don’t have invent the wheel every time you open your mouth, it’s okay to reuse a conversation topics that you have used before, especially if it has lead to interesting conversation before, chances are it’s likely to do it again. Have a small note book and write down at couple of keywords every time you have an interesting conversation.
