Re: Need advice on what to say on dates
From what you wrote it to me it sounds like you automatically go autopilot cause you feel like you ran out of things to say/talk about...
One thing I used to do was pick up a newspaper or read online articles that were interesting and pick out 5 different topics and include them into a conversation i've done it so much that I don't run into what you're running into anymore
A way to include it would be " Oh the other day I was read/seen a thing about (topic here) that I found (Online/newspaper) it was about...... "
Another one could be about a viral video for example the guy with his go pro when he jumped in there was a shark a few inches away from him to include that you could say "Did you see that video of the guy who jumped into the sea and the shark was really close to him? "
Of course you'll need to calibrate and know when to say it
