Having a one-on-one conversation with a guy can be difficult for women who are shy, unlike texting. A woman may have no idea what to talk about and how to keep the conversation going. The first thing you need to learn to talk to a guy is how to show confidence. You need to practice it until you get better. Make a guy like you not try to impress just one guy; you need to learn how to make the first impression last on all guys. Talking to a guy for the first time is easy, and once you learn how to do it, you’ll never be shy again. If you want to know how to talk to a guy, here are some tips you can use.
1. Ask about the time
If you want to talk to a guy but have no idea what to say, you can break the ice by asking the time. Guys are very proud of their watches and they won’t mind showing it off. Asking the boy about the time can lead the conversation to go anywhere. You must learn to make small talk to keep the conversation going. If the boy likes you, he will also try to have a conversation with you. All you have to do is play along with him and not try to impress him.
2. Touch him gently
Touching a guy’s arm or shoulder while you’re chatting can make the guy more interested in you. He will pay attention to what you say and might flirt with you. Men are attracted to women who occasionally touch them while chatting. They begin to show their interest involuntarily. However, be sure to touch the guy casually and appropriately so he doesn’t confuse your intention.
3. Seek the protection
It is natural for a man to protect a woman. To seek the protection of a boy, you must rekindle this primordial sense. You can reach out and hold yours when you see a big scary dog approaching you, or you can smile shyly at him and ask if you can help him carry a load. This will make the guy feel necessary and therefore protect you. He will appreciate it and will do his best not to disappoint you. Such an encounter will make a guy start talking to you.
4. Make him talk about himself
People like to talk about themselves; This is a known fact. If you have no idea how to talk to a guy you like, you can start by asking open-ended questions about him. He will answer you automatically. He will start to give you more details about himself without knowing it. You can ask more questions than the boy just told you to get him to talk more. However, avoid asking questions that give you a no and a yes. This will make the conversation boring and will end quickly. Your goal is to keep the boy talking. Therefore, you can practice more if you don’t know how to ask open-ended questions.
5. Avoid foul language while talking to a guy
As a woman, you must learn to speak clean and decent. Using foul language to strike up a conversation with a guy can be a complete snub. People who use foul language to talk about others are pessimistic and have low self-esteem. Therefore, people avoid being around them. Men are attracted to women who speak cleanly and use decent language over everything.
6. Be courteous
Men tend to talk more to educated women. Being an educated woman means that you are a kind and loving woman who cares about other people. If you try to pretend to be polite when you are in their presence, they will eventually get you. Practice being a genuinely good person and you will earn their attention.
8. Ask him a question
Asking questions is the best way to start a conversation with a guy. People tend to open up and talk while being consulted. They do it to defend themselves, to explain something, or for mere interest. Don’t freak out when you meet a guy you like, nor should you feel pressure to try to impress him. Reverse the roles and keep you on your toes. Assess your guy by asking him questions and see if he impresses you. Ask the fun, flirty, but evaluative questions. However, don’t do everything about the guy by asking him questions throughout the conversation. You have to give something back. If the guy answers your questions genuinely, you can also say something small about yourself. Avoid giving too much detail; This will put you off. Don’t play trivia games with the boy if he appeals to you. Remember, it should make your first impression last. People who ask nasty questions, like which car you drive, are you rich or not, where do you live, etc., are people with low self-esteem and have no good intentions.
9. Make an informal statement to your guy
If you are feeling shy and really want to talk to a guy you like, you can comment on something without waiting for a response. You’re trying to be friendly with the boy. So, don’t be upset if things don’t go the way you expected. The statement does not have to be in something specific. You can make general comments about the weather, coffee, politics, etc. If the guy is really interested in talking to you, he’ll keep the conversation going. On the other hand, don’t be disappointed if the guy isn’t interested in you. If he doesn’t answer you, you will have nothing to lose.
10. Avoid lying when talking to him
Women who are shy make big mistakes when they want to impress a guy. As a woman, you feel the need to lie to a guy about things that matter to him, in hopes of connecting. If you lie, you will be trapped in another circumstance and will lose your trust in yourself. Talk to your guy and tell him about your perspective. Avoid the brutal truth if you don’t like her taste in music, movies, and fashion, to name just a few. Just make sure you don’t lie to him.
11. Try to flirt
In case you have no idea what to say to a guy you like, you can try being flirtatious. You can stare at it for several minutes to get its attention. If the guy notices you, you can smile and look away for several minutes again. If you are lucky, the boy will come up to you and start talking to you. In these circumstances, you don’t have to worry about what to say to the guy. Play along with their conversation. If the guy is attracted to you, he will ask for your number to keep in touch through calls or text messages. He might be eager to talk to you too. Therefore, the chances of him saying something stupid are high. Don’t make fun of the boy; instead, make him feel comfortable with you. Nevertheless, If the guy avoids you even after you’ve tried for various reasons to flirt with him, don’t be discouraged. You should know that he is not the one for you.
12. Make him feel useful
It is common to see a boy help a woman wholeheartedly. They like to feel useful and appreciated and this makes their ego skyrocket. When you’re nervous about talking to a guy, you can try to make him feel useful by borrowing his pen or paper. This will create a great opportunity to talk to him. If you are lucky, the guy will start a conversation with you. They will probably ask you what you are doing; therefore, you should find an answer. Such a conversation ends up talking about your job and his.
13. Laugh with him
Laughing with a guy is a smart move for people who don’t know how to strike up a conversation. However, only a woman who can decipher a joke should use this method. You can make up a joke that will make you genuinely laugh, or you can turn an embarrassing situation into something funny. This will really make you laugh. We all know that laughter is contagious. Therefore, your laugh will make the boy laugh. This connection will make the guy start talking to you. Keep the conversation flowing and try to impress him. If things work out for you in the end, the boy might ask for your number. However, this does not mean that I start texting you right away. Let me get to you first.
14. Have diverse knowledge
A woman who knows her way through any conversation is a woman worth having. Having a diverse understanding of everything is a great way to start talking to a guy you like. Use this knowledge to show off a bit. Avoid being too strong, otherwise, you will intimidate him. If the guy is attracted to you, he might ask you to text him your number. This is a great way to connect with any guy you want. Your knowledge is your best asset. Talking to a guy is easy once you know how to do it. You don’t have to go out of your way to impress any guy; rather make them earn your affection. With these tips, you will master how to be a strong, confident woman and appear efficient.
