Conversations can be saved if you can recognize it early enough, and you know how to save a dying conversation.
It’s good practice, too, if you want to improve your conversation skills and take it to new heights.
Sometimes, when a conversation goes stale and boring, it’s not worth saving. But, if you have your reasons and you want to give life once more to a dying conversation, there’s a few tips you can follow to bring a conversation back from the depths of the abyss.
Look, it can happen to anyone, so do think it’s unnatural that the conversation you’re having with a pretty girl turned into a staring contest. We can all run out of things to say, and, most of the time, you can just let it ride until one of you start again.
But… don’t take too long to get the conversation “restarted”, unless you want the girl to get bored. Why? Because when that happens, don’t expect anything from her.
No second date, no sex, nothing.
So what do you do when the conversation starts sinking like a boat full of holes?
First of all, don’t panic.
It will only cause you to doubt anything that you’re going to say next. And you’ll be thinking useless thoughts about how to save the situation from stinking.
So don’t push it downward faster than you need to, if what you want is to bring it back up and get her eyes to light up again.
Don’t blame yourself, too. It may have something to do with her.
So you better have something when or before that happens. You should already know what you want to happen, and there’s a road you’re following to get there. You’re already prepared for anything or most of what could go wrong — like the conversation dying.
That includes knowing what to say to a girl beforehand, and using those as a guide to prevent the conversation from fading to nothingness. And to recognize the situation when it starts to deteriorate.
If you can do that, you can quickly change topics.
Abruptly cut the thread of what you’re talking about that leads to nowhere land and immediate switch to something more exciting and interesting.
To do that, you can say anything out of nowhere, make an observation, make an excuse to talk about her, or just lead and take her somewhere new to stimulate both your brain waves.
If you can do this, you’ve just bought yourself some time to come up with something better to talk about so you can easily save a dying conversation no matter how dire you think the situation may be.
