i have never been the one to start or keep convos going, most of the friends I've made have all been them making the effort I've realised. I do come across as quite an intriguing character in which people seem to be interested in but I never realised that until recently.
now it's come to a time where I need to make friends myself and make the effort with people. BUT I just don't know how to keep a conversation going if the other person isn't asking the questions. I show an interest and ask multiple questions but I seem so boring and the conversation just always seems to die.
Recently came out of a long term relationship. Not so used to conversing with new people, went on 4 diff dates of complete diff characters but I just couldn't get engaged in convo with any of them.
I REALLY need some tips, I have been starting and trying to keep convos going with random people so I can get better at spontaneous conversation but it's HARD
How do you keep a conversation going??? watch

Ahh, you seek the Gift of the Gab.
Repeated exposure to social situations will boost ones confidence, and in turn, bestow thy tongue with the ability to banter.
Would you be willing to join a local club? Conversing is easier when done over a common interest. For example, you could check if there is a Knitters Club in your area? A bit of patter about your favourite embroideries & various yarns you own, and soon you'll be spinning words faster than Eminem. All the lads will want to be your friend. Trust me.
