One of the things that keep a date alive, and one of its essential elements, apart from the venue and the clothes that you would be wearing would be the conversations that you would be having. If you want to personally meet someone whom you encountered on an online site after a good, long chat, finally meeting them in the flesh, it can be quite awkward at first, but if you manage to keep the conversation going, then chances are, the date would turn out to be a great one, and that there would be even more dates to come. The following are some good tips for a dating conversation to be the best.

Keep it Fun

Don’t be too heavy and intense, especially if it’s the first time that you’d be meeting. Be humorous, but don’t try too hard. It really takes a series of trials and errors before you finally get to a topic that both of you could be able to relate to. It’s not a good idea to have problems or troubles you are currently having at the moment as some sort of conversational starter, really. Also, you don’t really have to think hard. Just “go with the flow”, as they say.

Avoid Talking About Your Ex

Talking about your ex isn’t really a great way to start a conversation, however. It can feel awkward trying to bring it up, especially if the previous breakup has been bitter or just very recently. Keep the answers as shortly as you could should the topic really be inevitably brought up. Past is past and sometimes, it’s just not worth reminiscing. Keep things in the now in order for it to be as happy of a conversation as possible for you and the one you’re dating.
