Meeting a new person and unsure what to say? When in doubt, ask questions!
Almost anyone secretly loves to talk about themselves, and giving them some questions about their lives in earnest interest is bar none the best way to indulge them.
But don’t just ask the question and phase out. You have to listen too. Warm, sincere interest helps a new person immediately feel comfortable around you. Asking and listening is a one-two punch for building a meaningful connection with a person.
