Opening Lines and Conversation Starters

Aaron Marino of alpha m. says that small talk is the key to managing the act of conversing with new people and a critical component of interaction. We need small talk. It's like boxing- you start by feeling him / her out. It's a dance, not knocking someone out. Small talk is peppering them with punches.

Four Favorite Conversation Starters

  1. "When you're not working, what do you like doing?" - hobbies (passion) are something that people can talk about all day long and they get excited doing it. Conversation will get rolling, and eventually they reciprocate the question.
  2. "How's your day going?" - hopefully they elaborate more than 'fine'. If not, go to #3.
  3. "You have any plans this weekend?" - if they haven't engaged at this point, this person 'sucks' and find someone else.
  4. Lead with a compliment; however, the only appropriate aspect to compliment is something that they're wearing otherwise it could be taken the wrong way!
