Thumbs up Stop the Stalling! *Easy Ways to Have a Good Conversation*

We all have those conversations on Profile Messages or PM's that end with a blah, as in not knowing what to say next. For example.

1: I love my new Converse!
2: Cool! (: I'm happy you got them.
1: Yeah. (10 letter)
2: So.....................

If that ever happens to me, I use these tips:

1. Talk about something you did today that's exciting.
2. Ask a random question about them. You'll get an 'LOL' and a conversation!
3. Compliment them! It's a good thing to do.
4. Talk about Webkinz- we all have something in common: a love of Webkinz!
_________________

For New Friends:

Ask them about themselves! What's their favorite cereal? Do they like yogurt? People will think of you as a fun friend as well.

Use their username. For example:

Cats4evr

Member78: I see you like cats; do you have any?

This can be the start of a long conversation.

Ask them about their WI experience.



_________________

For 'Older' Friends:

Ask them for advice. You should trust them, and they can help you because they know you.

Be random. I say, "What's your favorite state?" Soon, facts about all the states can pop up in a conversation.

Remember some of your old memories- what was the first thing you said to eachother? Do you remember your funniest messages?

Talk about your WI threads- can you believe so-and-so's (your friend's thread) got 3,000 posts?!

Oh, that's very helpful, Pugs! Sometimes I get short messages like- "Cool !" or "Nicee. xD" It makes me feel as if they don't care about the VM. ): Yes-- random questions could be good, or you can say what happening in your life. I mean, there's a lot you can say! Maybe you can say "Sup _____ ?" too!

Default Re: Stop the Stalling! *Easy Ways to Have a Good Conversation*

This is amazing!

Another question to add to the list use would be, What do you think came first: The chicken, or the egg?

Anyways, I agree that those converstions that end awkwardly are, well, very awkward! And that sometimes funny questions like those are your only choice, unless you want the conversation to actually end like that

I will be adding this to my subscribed threads to use--Thank you so much!

Very good guide, although I think you might want to make a note that you shouldn't say the year you were born; it violates rules!

great thread pugs!
I also think that sometimes if you are down a longtime WI friend is a good person to talk to about problems or disapointments and happy things to! But I always found it easy to tell my friends on WI about things and when it's a problem I tell them ,they always help me. Yeah that's a good convo starter
