Are you uncomfortable when trying to talk to men? Does your mind go completely blank when a cute guy comes over to talk to you? Do you find it impossible to make any words actually come out of your mouth? Don't worry, you're not alone.
Here are a few suggestions to help you get over your fear of talking to men.
Convince yourself that he is an old acquaintance.
Pretend that you have known him for a while and just throw out some familiar questions like, "How have you been?" or ask how his job is going.
He might be a little confused but at least you have given him the opportunity to reply.
Anyone can have an answer to questions like these.
Sometimes you have to play a little trick on yourself to make it easier when talking to men.
Try to uncover those things that interest him.
Ask him some general questions and see where it leads.
He might seem to enjoy talking about sports, or travel, or new movies.
Join in little by little as you feel more comfortable, but you can use questions in the meantime.
As you listen to him, plan a question to ask on something he has just said.
Then you can let him carry the dialogue for a while longer because he has something he can relate to.
Not only will this give you time to ease into the conversation, but your guy will be so flattered that you have taken such an interest in him.
He will be happy to continue on with such an avid audience.
Remember, he is probably nervous also because he wants to make a good impression on you.
He doesn't want to say anything that will lose your interest or offend you, so your efforts to make things easy on him will work wonders for you.
Talking to men can be daunting and uncomfortable at first, but you can get through it.
These ideas can help you make the entire situation much more comfortable.
