Conversations are a daily part of everyday life, however, even if we do it on a daily basis, that doesn't make it any easier. Some conversations start off well and come to a screeching halt over reasons that may be unknown to the talkers.
Although natural conversations can be a tough egg to crack, here are some tips to keep those conversations going smoothly and naturally. Enjoy:
Always Introduce Yourself:
When you find yourself in the midst of a brand new group, always remember to make eye contact and introduce yourself. If you happen to stand in the corner or greet the other's with only a mere wave, it makes it awkward for everyone, including yourself. Get out there and introduce yourself with a handshake as you introduce yourself as well as get everyone else's names.
This applies to friends too; if you are bringing a friend into a new group, never leave them to fend for themselves; especially when you are first meeting them. Always take the time to introduce your friend right after introducing yourself, or before taking on any other conversations. This is not only courteous and puts you in a generous light; but it also makes things less awkward for everyone who is still curious, or even suspicious, to who your friend is.
