I’m not good with small talk and being funny and random. When I’m home, I can do anything, but when I am around guys, I get quiet and feel like the odd one out.
Dear Small Talk,
Most girls feel more comfortable one-on-one than in a group,
but speaking up gets easier and easier. Since small talk can lead to bigger
discussions, try easy compliments, no-risk remarks and conversation-starters
about music, sports, TV or headline news. Your goal isn’t to entertain a crowd or to be chatty and
cheerful 24/7, it’s to connect with a guy or two. Thoughtfulness counts, too.
Be the one who asks, “How was the movie?” or “How was your weekend?” And keep
making plans one guy at a time.
