Communication is the foundation to express yourself. Interactive and effective communication skills might help you to talk to strangers in a more effective way. Conversations are also responsible either for making war or peace. While establishing a new connection, or keeping up with an old one, you are required to have communication skills.

We often meet a lot of people every day who are complete strangers to us. The guy you met in the cab, a receptionist, a grocery man, or even a random friend request. All these people are referred to as strangers since you have never met them before. You can learn a lot of things from them, or even can be friends only if you know to strike a conversation with them.

Today we will learn some cool tricks on How to talk to strangers effectively

You may have an awkward feeling when you want to start talking to a stranger but are not able to decide where to start from. If the person is not taking an initiative, you can do so. Moreover, if you are not sure about what you should talk about, or how to start talking to a stranger, this article will serve as a rescue. 

#1 When you are not on a topic, ask them their hobbies

Questions related to​ hobbies are one of the best conversation starters. You will get a chance to know more about a person when you ask them about their hobbies. You will get a lot of things to discuss on a few additional topics, and also if one of their hobbies matches yours. Without incorporating this question in your talks, you may end up having a boring and dull conversation. 

#2 Approach them with positivity

Say hello, or hi with a big smile on your face. A positive gesture will help you to interact more effectively.  A​ smile can cure anything and it will create positive vibes around you. You have so many words in your mind right at the moment. So instead of saying anything else, you can just say hello with a big smile. You can try talking to a person in this way when it seems like you are falling short of words. 

#3 Be generous and confident

You should try to be generous and confident. Don’t​ feel shy, they are just human beings and not aliens. It is just that they are strangers at the moment, but you will get to know them as you start talking. By talking to strangers, you can get ideas and solutions for a few things that you have been looking for so long. Their talks will unlock several doors in life. 

#4 Skip short chats

Short Chats are conversation killers. How are you? I am fine. What​ are you doing?Ummm, nothing. All such kinds of chats will not take your conversation further. Start talking and consider asking them some interesting questions, like Where are they from? Does their family live here, etc.? The point is that you want them to continue talking. Look for topics that will make them speak.

Final Thoughts on Talking to strangers

Once you are in a conversation with a person, you will no longer be a stranger. You can also choose to hang out with them for food and drinks. They serve as conversation openers and you get a lot of time to discuss a few topics. Sit at a bar and get to know a person more. Striking up a conversation with a person you have never met takes a bit of courage. When you get to know the person better, you will no longer feel awkward.
