I’m kind of shy and awkward around guys. How can I start a conversation with them?
Watch Chick-E's video answer:
1. Find Common Ground
If you go to school together or have classes together, start a conversation about that. For example, “I heard it was a great win against Central last week!” Or, “Is that biology assignment breaking your back too?”
2. Look for Clues to Give You an Idea of His Interests
If you don’t know him and want to start a conversation, take a close look at what he is wearing and see if you can pick up any clues from that. Such as, is he wearing a baseball cap with a logo of a football team. You can say, “How ‘bout them Bears?”
3. Wing It!
If you can’t pick up any clues whatsoever, then just go up to him and say “Hi”. Or, ask for directions. For example, if you are at the mall, say “Excuse me, but do you know where the Food Court is?”(just make sure you aren’t standing right in front of it when you ask).
