Ice breakers? Conversation starters?

When you hang out with someone you like, what do you say to them? What's something that makes you immersed in conversation? Probably not comments about the weather, lol. I try to find something so spontaneous and funny when I want to talk to someone- sometimes it works sometimes they start tp think I'm a total freak. But there's also a lot of times when I can't think of anything good to start a conversation.

This happens to everyone. Ice breakers does have to be from us, our partners or friends need to learn about it too. So if I could not find anything to talk about, I would expect the other will take hold of the conversations.

When I hang out with someone, especially a girl, I'm more likely to be an ice-breaker. In order to avoid silence, I usually start our conversation by talking about my experience. She may show her interest in some part of my experience. Then we could communicate further in these parts. In the process of communication, she may also talk about her experience. In such circumstance, you may feel that time is passing so fast.

I like to talk about current events such as new movies, music and sports. That will also open doors for you to see what that persons interests are. Sometimes starting a converstaion isnt that hard if there is chemistry then you can talk about random stuff but trying to hard will make the situation a little akward because the other person can usually tell.
