Greetings, salutations, or hello. An introduction, an opener, a pickup line, whatever you want to call it. it is the beginning of a conversation. Some of us are decent conversationalists making it easy to strike of a conversation with almost anyone not everyone.
So you swiped in the appropriate direction and you got a match or someone gave you a friends number to set you up and you want to strike up a conversation with someone. What do you say? How do you start a conversation with someone especially a stranger?
First of all, you are not alone. In this post and in future posts I am going to give some ideas that you can use to get that communication flowing.
Have you ever had an ear worm? An ear work is a tune or a melody that gets caught in your brain and you keep playing it over and over in your head. That is where this next introduction came from. I was online on one of the apps and someone messaged me around the Christmas season. They simply asked “What do you want for Christmas?” Which is a great opener on its own but it gave me an idea.
I waited for the next person to say Hello and Merry Christmas and I started feeding them the lines for the song “All I want for Christmas” one at a time. Admittedly a few people got mad and would not accept my apology, if you fell victim to this I apologize again. I never intended to upset anyone it was intended to bring humor and lighten the mood. I was only able to utilize this a few times. since I waited for someone to say Merry Christmas.
Have you used song Lyrics? Have an interesting ice breaker? I’d love to hear about it.
