So we go to the mall..and you see thousands of people..but some people may think:
"there is no one to talk to..."
while others may think: "Where should i start talking"
From experience, maintaining a conversation is easy(as long as the person is open for conversation), and getting a "strangers" # is easy as well, but the hardest part is the initiation, or starting, of a conversation. The initiation of a conversation is extremely important because it gives first impressions.
So I ask totse, what are your creative "tactics" to initiating a conversation with a stranger? The reason I am asking Totse is because I have a long history of being anti-social, and I want to start doing the uncomfortable...to be comfortable talking with others =].
A method that I use, for example, I feel like I have to give them a reason to talk to someone, for example..
"hey that looks really good! what is it called? where did you get it?" and then i start.
I am sure there are other ways though, if anyone can provide some input
