When I talk to boys, should I just encourage him to talk about himself more; encouraging him to elaborate, ask him questions, let him carry/dominate the conversation, etc.
Or should I try to talk more about myself and let him ask me questions?
What do guys prefer?
I'm a girl actually. Just didn't want to say it because it felt sort of redundant and attention seeking.
Personally, the former.
There is nothing more annoying than constantly having to ask her questions in order to get her to say anything, and having the whole burden of the conversation fall on you.
Men only do this because they're afraid of her getting bored and moving on, not because they enjoy it necessarily.
>should I try to talk more about myself and let him ask me questions
i enjoy when people talk for me, as in they know they want to talk and know what they want to talk about.
if they do that instead of me steering the conversation its great
as long as you can talk and actually bring up your opinions and just contribute fucking anything you'll be immensely appreciated
although 'anything' should be something relatively prone to you. I dont want to fucking hear about dumb news, people problems (unless they are in conflict with your personality), or anything for that matter that is not directly related to you who are or something that isn't something I already know about
frankly the best conversations are either silence or just the small things
at a certain point, if it is unnatural, then it isnt meant to be
I like a bit of both. Just try to follow the flow of conversation and balance talking about yourself vs getting him to elaborate on things. It's rare that someone only prefers one or the other.
half and half really, when he's talking you should shut up a bit, but when you're talking he should also shut up
almost like how an average conversation would go, except he has a benis and you have a bagina
You will get many different responses, but for the love of god, ACT INTERESTED IN THE CONVERSATION.
Don't just passively sit there and expect him to entertain you.
Show that you are interested in his life, and that you want him to know something about your life as well.
Talking to people is so hard. Why can't you make it simple?
It is simple.
Because you are female, you will be desired regardless of how many social queues you miss, or how awkward you are.
All you have to do is show interest. You don't even have to be constantly entertaining like men.
I have some bad news though OP, boys really do mostly care about physical attractiveness. We usually won't admit it because it makes us look bad.
Girls tend to care about social skills to the point where ugly boys can compensate, but that's much harder for ugly girls.
In other words, if you want to attract male attention, improving your appearance will probably go much further than anything you can learn about how to talk to us.
If you drive all the real girls away traps and faggots will just keep on pretending to be them anyway. Might as well have some actual girls around here so we don't all turn prison gay.
I'd prefer for a girl to tell me "anon cut the crap, I like you so let's move on from the talking shit". I talk to her because I want to attract her, not because I want her to attract me. She already attracted me with her looks if we're talking.
