Frequently Asked Questions

How do you keep a conversation going?

To keep a conversation going, you must take a genuine interest in the other person and actively listen to what they say. This creates a natural flow of conversation and keeps the conversation going.

Ask open-ended questions: These are questions that cannot be answered with a simple “yes” or “no” They encourage the other person to share more about themselves and their thoughts.

Show interest in the other person: Ask about their life, experiences, and opinions. Pay attention to what the person says and ask more questions.

Share your experiences and thoughts: This helps build rapport and flow of the conversation.

Avoid awkward silences: If the conversation gets stalled, try to steer it back on track by bringing up a new topic or asking a question.

Use body language and nonverbal cues: Smile, make eye contact and nod your head to show you are engaged in the conversation.

What are deep talks?

Deep talks are conversations in which people explore their thoughts and feelings more deeply than is common in everyday conversation. Deep conversations can take many forms but generally involve asking meaningful questions about life, emotions, ideas, perceptions, and experiences.

Deep talks aim to create a safe space where both parties can express themselves without judgment or fear of consequences. Instead, they should be viewed as an exploration where each person can share their thoughts without expecting what will happen next.

Moreover, serious conversations are often used as a means of self-reflection to gain insight into one’s feelings and beliefs. They also allow people to learn more about each other and develop strong relationships based on mutual understanding and trust. 

How do you talk without being awkward?

It can be challenging to talk without seeming awkward, especially if you are in a new situation or among strangers. Fortunately, some tips and tricks can make speaking easier and more natural.

The key to a smooth conversation is to focus on the other person. Ask questions about the person and their interests rather than being preoccupied with yourself. This creates a genuine connection between the two of you that feels more like a conversation and less like an interrogation.

Moreover, you should also try to listen actively rather than just wait for your turn to speak. If you show interest in the other person’s story or opinion, the conversation will take on a positive flow.

Another tip is to relax your body language. Ensure you maintain an open stance with your arms uncrossed to avoid appearing closed off or defensive. Also, avoid fidgeting, which can come across as nervousness or boredom. A smile is another good way to give off positive charisma and make people feel comfortable around you.

Finally, try not to use too many filler words—like “um” and “like”—when speaking. This will make you seem more confident and articulate, making it easier for your conversation partners to engage without feeling uncomfortable. 

Why do I feel like I have nothing to say?

One of the main reasons is that we feel overwhelmed or stressed by the idea of speaking in front of others. This can cause us to shut down our ability to think and form words and feel like we have nothing to say.

Another reason for this could be self-doubt. This becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy if you constantly tell yourself that you have nothing exciting or important to say. Eventually, you will believe that you have nothing to say.

In addition, you may have been conditioned from an early age not to speak up or speak out. It may take time and effort to break out of this habit and find your “voice” again if this is the case. 

Finally, another possible cause could be low self-esteem. When we lack confidence in ourselves and our abilities, speaking in front of others feels scary and overwhelming. This leads us to believe that we do not have anything worthwhile or valuable to share with those around us.


There are endless things to talk about in life. Whether it’s current events, personal interests, or deep philosophical discussions, there is always something to spark a conversation. The important thing is to keep an open mind and be willing to listen to the views and opinions of others.

By engaging in meaningful conversations, we can learn from each other and expand our understanding of the world around us. So the next time you are engaged in a conversation, be bold, dig deep, and explore new topics—you never know what you might learn.
