So the lesson here is: WHAT you talk about doesn’t always have to be incredibly interesting.
You can make almost any conversation interesting if you are not afraid to openly share your unique perspective, personality and opinion.
For example, if the topic of some new music trend comes up, you can mention what type of music you were into as a kid. Back when I had a hard time carrying conversations, I’d often desperately try to think of new random topics to talk about out out of thin air. instead try looking around you and pointing something out in the environment.
This will often naturally lead to other things you two can discuss.
You’re not alone if you’ve been in this situation before. And I can understand that you want to prevent this from happening to you again, especially if you’re talking to a person who you like. I’ve put together this cheat sheet of 50 interesting conversation topics you can use at any time to rekindle the conversation, even if you feel it start to go downhill.
