5. Being a Good Listener
One of the best ways to make your conversation meaningful and interesting is to ask your date open-ended questions. This kind of questions lets the person give detailed answers about life, hobbies, interests and preferences. This is how you learn about your date’s character and attitude. Demonstrate your sincere interest in what your date tells you and be a good listener. Your body language plays an important role. Your posture should be open. Nod if you agree and understand your date. Brief paraphrasing of answers encourages people to continue talking. Develop your listening skills as well as patience.
