These Are Basically Conversation Starters In The Form of Accessories
For all my single ladies, for all those awkward first date convo pauses and for all those times you went uncontrollably went on about the appetisers.| February 12, 2018
Not everyone has the guts to strike up a conversation out of nowhere, much less the charisma to carry on with one without ending in an awkward silence. There are some who can literally pick a conversation out of the air – just get me started on Netflix and I will not shut up – while there are others who need a little push. A wing-woman, perhaps. Three people being awkward is still better than two.
But, what if you were flying solo? So, you’re single and ready to mingle, but you suddenly find yourself out of things to say, whether you’re taking sippies at the bar or halfway through that first date. You’re done talking about the food. You need a topic to grab on to fast – anything, just anything!
Grab on to your conversation starting piece! Mentally, not physically, because that might be a little weird. Maybe it is a pair of earrings with faces on it. Maybe it is the unconventional shoe you’re wearing that is starting to gnaw away at your ankle. That’s a whole fifteen-minute conversation in the making! Maybe it is a clutch purse that literally has a comic book cove embroidered on it.
And, if your date is just as anxious to quell the conversation, he’ll play along and who knows where that conversation might go? For all my single ladies out there flying solo or a little anxious about that first date, pick your inanimate wing-woman from our round-up of statement conversation-starting pieces below.
