    I am going to have a few ladies round for tea with my chums. I feel ever so silly however, any tips for making my evening a success? My chums aren't used to speaking to ladies.

    tv shows can be good common ground to start off on. We're not completely obsessed with fluffy kittens* and clothes and pink y'know. So start up a conversation on the last episode of The Apprentice for example. Most young people watch it.



    *yeah, okay I have a thing for kittens but that's the exception rather than the rule.

    I know how you feel.
    I can't really get around it very well either.

    Just try and think of them as people not as 'girls', and just try to relax when talking to them, always have something to talk about because if you stand there in an awkward silence then that's bound to make you feel even more awkward xx

    Don't overthink it. For example, don't try and approach the situation with a list of tips you accrued from a internet forum on how to talk to girls. They're just people, chill your beans and talk like you would to anyone else.

    I always feel really awkward when talking to girls. I think it's a confidence thing. Help?
    Shyness and modesty around the opposite gender is a good and rare trait. Don't change that!

    lol that reminds me of rajesh from the big bang theory ! :P

    na seriosly.. i know what your problem is I had that aswell... You just need to stop thinking about what you say.. because its not that important... the only important thing is that you say something !

    Its only the first 10 seconds and after that you should feel alright... try not to face the total silence.. thats the point thinks get akward.. And ofcourse don't forget to smile !

    And how was conversation when you started speaking with that girl for the first few times?
