When you run out of things to say, what comes after is silence.

And an expression of feeling lost and a sense of nervousness and uncertainty. You stutter and say filler words as she stares at you trying to understand what you’re saying.

Until she can’t take it anymore and says goodbye politely, leaving you disappointed but at the same time relieved that you get to live another day. And try again with another girl, and hopefully this time, you never run out of things to say.

Back up a bit, instead of losing hope when you run out of things to say… you could ask her a question — an open ended one — and let her speak. That takes the pressure off of you and you get to relax a little, maybe for a while if she’s got a lot to say.

Sometimes, you can just wait and say nothing.

Ride the silence and don’t feel uncomfortable about it. More often than not, she’ll start talking and move the conversation along.

She’ll take the floor while you think of things you can say to contribute to the conversation. You don’t have to force things to happen, it’ll naturally take its due course and you’ll be amazed at how well it goes.

That should be enough time to stir the conversation to where you want to take it. Maybe something that happened to you during the day or a funny story you just remembered. If you’ve polished your conversation skills, you’ll always have some interesting story to tell.

You’ll be able to pull out topics you know by heart while minding what to talk about with her. You’ll have it all in your head, and when or if ever the time comes that your brain comes up with nothing but air, you’ll have something handy to talk about.

But probably the best thing you can do when you run out of things to say is to not hold back. Whatever comes to your mind, don’t filter it and just let it come oozing out. Speak your mind no matter how bold you may think it is.

It’s worth talking about since your subconscious mind may have picked something up from your conversation with her that’s itching to get scratched.

So, when your run out of things to say, remember these tips well and continue the conversation as if nothing happened. Sooner or later, it won’t be a problem for you and you’ll wonder why it ever occurred in the first place.
