When having a conversation it should flow as if you are reading a story. the best way to keep a convo going is to ask questions, answer questions with longer answers and that should spark interests. the good thing about an interest is it is something we would know much about. this makes the conversation go on longer anyway. try to be more of a proactive conversationalist. i hope i helped
Practice. That's the best thing to help you in conversation, talk to a lot of people and say what's on your mind. Dont be afraid that what you'll say may offend or hurt someone, because eventually it will. You will learn how to be sensitive. Be random but have sense. Listen and focus on who youre talking to. Ask questions. Share experiences and stories. Don't mind too much of where the convo is going, or the dead ends or the awkward silences. Just let the conversation flow. Hope that help! :) ♥
You could write down a bunch of things that you are interested in and then use those as conversation topics. Listen to Celery, that one knows what they're talking about. But also, it's not a bad thing to be a naturally quiet person, it just means you listen better.
The most interesting thing for other people it's often their voice, ask something to the other person. It's also useful to know when it's time to leave a conversation. And read, read books, read articles, read the newspaper and use current events to share what you think about them and ask what the other person thinks.
