Conversation Topics to Spark a Relationship

We meet people everyday. Even by sitting in one of the bench in the park, queing for payment, waiting for the bus or even in applying for a job. We end up talking to the person beside, infront or back of us.

Why?

There are few reasons why we talk to strangers unexpectedly. A small talk sometimes ease our boredom or we wanted to begin a relationship with the person.

Whatever the reasons, here are some conversation topic that can start a relationship.

Relationship doesn't all mean having a romantic relationship. Relationship can also be a friend, classmate, colleague or workmate. A relationship is a connection between you and a person.

Depending on what kind of relationship you are forming, your questions should be appropriate to ask and should be appealing to answer. I know its awkward to start a conversation to a stranger, but setting aside that awkwardness, you must take the courage to start a convertation. Remember, how can we gain friends if we don't talk to strangers?

Although we cannot asked question that is too personal, cause we believed that people value their privacy, there are some topics that can be both safe and satisfying. The beauty of asking a questions to someone is about something that they enjoy talking about. Establishing a shared reality requires more than exchanging information.

The Story Telling Value of History

Although some people are often awkward sharing some personal information to a strangers, they are not shy to tell about where they're grew up. Hometown highlights often presented a positive light with a healthy dose of nostalgia, is both interesting to hear and enjoyable to tell. This topics allows you to know the common ground area, and given a possibility that you are both on the same area.

Admit it or not, when you meet someone here in readcash that the hometown or province is the same as you, you feel this unexplainable connection. You wanted to talked more to that person about the place or your province, until you didn't noticed that you are having a smooth conversation. After having a conversation you felt that you are getting closer to that person.

My Children, Myself

When it comes to getting to know a new friend or an acquitance, the topic of offspring is never an off-limits. Most people light up a Christmas tree if you asked them about their family. In fact, if you asked one questions, they answered it with long answer with a follow up, meaning a single questions has a multiple answers.

I am sure those momshie's here in readcash can relate to this like @Yen and @Eybyoung . I noticed that some of their articles are about to their children in which both of them can relate to each other.

For that reason, you find yourself getting closer to that person. You find yourself telling more and asking for some advice.

Travel: Adventure is meant to be shared

Most people loved to travel and they love to tell you about that. Where they have been and what places they've seen. Adventure of travel appeals to extroverts and introverts, you can build rapport without the boudary probing concerns you might have with other topics. Even with person who have reserved personalities will become animated when sharing that they enjoyed most.

Some users here in readcash like @tired_momma shared more of her travel experienced which some can relate and some find an inspiration and admiration and wanted to travel too.

In conclusion, building a relationship involves intentional effort to get close to someone. Topic selection and genuine interest can make you step closer to someone and you must be ready to reciprocate, because authentic curiosity about others makes them authentically interested in you too.

Thanks for reading!

I used to want to talk less to strangers and I don't know how these people are and what their thoughts are. But it's great to know people here. People who have good ideas and like to talk to each other. I liked https://read.cash/@tired_momma attitude and it looks like she has an old friendship. It's nice to know everyone and see their good ideas.

Making friends is easy but building a deep connection is somehow not so easy since some people are off-limits. As you have said if a person shares the same interests they can get along with each other well and easier..

I agree, some people are setting their boundaries when it comes to making friends. But with a simple conversation it can start a deep connection, it applies only to persons sharing the same interests or maybe knowing each other for a long time.

It's more fun to have a conversation with others like how we do in Facebook or other social media site. Since this is our platform making this a great place for every user and author must keep this alive. And love to exchange experiences with amazing people here, too many go mention. I guess don't talk to strangers not applicable in here lol

It is better to talked and burst your emotions and feeling here in readcash rather to your friends. I mean some people are shy or afraid to talked about problems or feeling to friends and family, and here in readcash we are free to let it all go.

I am speaking based on experienced. 😁

Sabi kc "don't talk to strangers" 😅😅 But you are right.. How can we gain friends if we don't talk? To be honest, sometimes I find it comfortable to talk with strangers than to those people I know (like neighbors ) However, it is easy to build a relationship, but not trust..

Para sa mga bata lang daw kasi yung don't talk to strangers 🤣 Pag malaki na it's okay to talk to strangers haha

Same I also find it more comfortable to talk to strangers about some things that I can't discuss with people who knows me and vice versa. Sometimes I find it easier to open a problem with a stranger I met online than to talk to a friend knowing that even of that stranger judge me, they don't know me personally so it's okay.
