How to Avoid Awkward Silences

Picture the scene. So you’ve met the girl of your dreams, you’ve plucked up the courage to go speak to her, and things are going well. In fact, she seems to be enjoying herself. I mean, she’s laughing, sounds interesting, and giving you plenty of eye contact…

But wait – then something happens.

Your mind goes blank. You get sweaty palms. Your mouth goes dry. And guess what? The entire conversation grinds to a halt, leaving you lost for words and confused as to what will happen next.

But it gets worse!

The awkward silence deepens, and before you know it, she’s made an excuse to go somewhere else. You’re left alone, wondering what went wrong.

So what can you do to make sure that this unfortunate event NEVER happens again? Well, here are some conversation-saving strategies that you can use next time you run out of things to say…

The main one is a game called Kiss Marry Avoid, which can be used in situations like the above to save face and get things back on track. In fact, the Kiss Marry Avoid game is so successful, the entire conversation could be turned round in an instant. Sounds good? Well, here’s how you play it…

When you run out of things to say to your partner, you can ask her if she wants to play a quick game. She should be curious at this point. After all, it’s probably not a question she’s been asked during a date before. It might even taker her by surprise. She might even ask you what you mean, to which you can ask her again if she wants to play a quick game.

Choose a random guy in the room and ask her whether she would ‘kiss’, ‘marry’, or ‘avoid’ the guy. Try and choose guys that look like they have different behaviors and personality types to make things interesting. You know, like business men, jock-type guys, rockers… It doesn’t matter who you pick but just make sure you choose from a large pool of people. This game is best played in a busy bar or restaurant.

The game is just a bit of fun so don’t be too worried about her answers. However, as well as being a great conversation starter, it can tell you a lot about the qualities that your partner finds attractive in a man. It can also create a closer bond and make YOU appear much more confident.

For example, if she says that she wants to kiss the rocker guy, and avoid the businessman, it could suggest that she has a wild side but doesn’t like too much structure. Alternatively, if she chooses an intelligent-looking guy, it might say other things about her personality.

It’s important here to point out a few things about the date in general. When with a girl you like, just relax and play it cool. Although you don’t want to get into a situation where you run out of things to say, keep things casual and light, and remember to let your date do plenty of talking.

Games like Kiss, Marry, Avoid can be played to lighten the mood and let you both get to know each other a little bit more. You knows – if the date goes well, she’ll probably want to see you again. Which is a major plus!

You can always make fun predictions about who you think she would kiss, marry or avoid in the room based on her previous responses. You might find some of her responses funny or not what you expected however.

This game also will prove how confident you are in your own self and sexuality. Remember – confidence can be a turn-on for many women, so it’s a good quality to have. You are able to discuss her kissing or marrying other men (even though it’s just for fun and a game!) and show that you are not threatened. After all, many men would be too scared to even suggest to the girl they were dating to look at someone else!

Playing this game for a few minutes can help to break the ice, and you will be able build on the rapport that you had during the game when your conversation continues to flourish during the rest of the date. Try next time you are on a date and see what happens.

Figuring this stuff out on your own could take years… or you can take the advice of these social masters and go use them tonight to connect with more women.
