If the thought of dating again gives you one thought (what will I say!), it's time to brush up on your small talk skills. Learning how to chat comfortably with someone is a key part of connecting while on a date. Here are some conversation tips for those new to the dating scene.
You and your date may talk constantly from the minute you sit down, or, more than likely, there will be a lull or two during the conversation. This doesn't mean that the two of you are incompatible, so don't panic when and if it happens.
Instead, use that time to take a sip of your coffee, make eye contact, and smile. If you're calm, another subject will pop into your head after a lull. If not, you can always look around the coffee shop (or wherever you decided to meet) and comment on something that is going on around you.
