It's not easy to get to know other people, because if you like someone, you may be particularly nervous and the flirting fails. Anmachsprüche also rarely help. So how do you get into conversation with other people?
In the beginning it is important that you break the ice once and attract attention to the person you are interested in. After that sometimes a nice and entertaining conversation can come about by itself, if only the first step is done.
Ask for help for something
It is often assumed that straight men like to help a helpless and slightly overworked woman and look forward to being able to be the hero who ends a predicament. But the pleasure of doing a little favor for someone, with little effort involved and thereby proving to oneself that you can do something, can be found in both sexes.
Of course, it should only be a small matter and you should not be overly needy act. Ideally, for example, is the question of how you can make a specific entry at the ticket vending machine or where you can find a specific stop. Let's explain a way, because this is usually connected with more than one sentence and with any questions.
This results in a certain interaction and you can then diverge with a nice smile or invite your counterpart for the friendly support and helpfulness on a short drink, because your appointment still has some time.
Smile and telephone
Directly inspiring someone is sometimes perceived as too direct and downright obtrusive. Some people feel pressured by it, which of course reduces the success of your endeavor. On the other hand, it is less direct if you give the impression that you only look at someone by the side or smile and do not immediately turn your entire attention to this person.
You can make this situation very well by making a phone call with your mobile phone, placing yourself near the person you are interested in or sitting and smiling at the other person during the apparent phone call.
You have the advantage that you can always withdraw a bit from the interaction with your counterpart by listening to the conversation on the phone again more intense and look away, but then to re-establish eye contact. Your smile may have already opened a door, so that after the phone call, there is a conversation.
Make sure that if you only fake the phone call, turn off the sound of your phone, because it would be very embarrassing if this rings, although you are already pretending that you already have someone at the other end.
