Most of the time when i'm talking to a girl, a friend or someone i'm trying to flirt with, i go blank and there's awkward silence. I have asked all the questions i could think of such as "how are you?" "what have you been up to?" those basic stuff, but after all those questions, i can't think of any more topics to talk about.
Are there any "opinion questions" or more interesting questions i can keep at the back of my mind when i go blank?
eg. "hey, i need to get your opinion on something. what do you think about long distance relationships cause my friend's girl is leaving the country"
- those things. it gets the flow of conversation going and more ideas come out. it makes the girl want to speak her mind
