Creating Stimulating Conversation

December 8, 2017


I hate small talk, but I am constantly meeting new people.  I’m also meeting people whose backgrounds and lives are very foreign to me.  So how do I avoid surface conversation?  I take it upon myself to set the tone. I usually do a combination of these two things.

1)  I share something that’s on my mind, which is personal but not intimate. 

Example: “It’s been hard being away from my husband for 6 weeks.” Although it isn’t exactly positive conversation it’s what’s on my mind and it’s relatable.

2)  I ask people questions about what makes them tick. 

Example: “I saw you look over there and smile.  What are you thinking about?”

I love learning about how different people process information.  It’s pretty much my favorite thing in the world.  So I take it upon myself to start those kinds of conversations.  These types of conversation tend to get pretty deep fast.  Because I’ve let go of the idea that there is a “right” or “wrong” way to think or be I believe I am invited into more intimate and interesting conversations.  You do you and you are fascinating.  I do me and I’m entitled as well.  Let’s learn about each other!
