What does a good conversation starter look like?

Here’s the secret to starting a great conversation.

Evoke emotions.

That’s the difference between a 10/10 conversation versus a convo that tastes like stale bread. If your icebreaker can hit multiple of their emotional tastebuds at the same time, it’s almost impossible for them not to reply. Your message is just too entertaining!

How do you accomplish all that emotional goodness? By writing a message that’s:

  • Personal. It’s tailor-made and one-of-a-kind.
  • Relevant. It ideally ties into your conversation partner’s interests.
  • Creative. It’s something the other person has never seen before.

This gives you the freedom to give it any kind of emotional flavor that you want. Even pumpkin spice.

You can make it funny, flirty, or challenging. It all depends on your mood and what you think they’ll like.

5 Expert tips to start and continue a conversation

Here are some pro tips that you can use to craft your own messages to get her hooked.

1. Keep it short and emotional

Emotionally stimulating sentences make her want to reply. Fun open-ended questions, excitement about a shared interest, or a delightfully playful tease are all good starting points.

2. Get creative

We like novelty because it stimulates the mind. And that gives us a little boost. So ideally, come up with a message that she’s never seen before or that is personal to her.

HINT: If she has a pet, I can guarantee that she’ll love a fun and complimentary line about her fluffy friend.

If you do it right, your online conversation starter will energize her like a shot of espresso.

3. Don’t obsess

Many guys will get a little too creative when coming up with a unique icebreaker. 9/10 times that makes them look a little desperate. And desperation or neediness isn’t exactly attractive.

So keep it chill and don’t try too hard. Your goal is to get a reply, not write the greatest opener of all time.

4. Pick a topic you’re curious about

This isn’t a hard requirement but if you mention something you’re genuinely curious about, the convo will naturally lead down that road. And since you’re interested, your convo will be off to a smooth and fun start.

5. Remember that it’s about emotions

It’s unavoidable to share facts with each other. But ultimately that’s not what’s going to win her over. She’s going to like you if you can make her feel all kinds of stuff. Topics are just an excuse to have fun banter.

So don’t fixate on the best topic. Focus on having FUN.
