Sometimes in conversation, you’ll run out of things to say. This is
especially true if you’re kind of shy or you’re not a very good
conversationalist. At certain points, you just won’t know what to say
next. But you can overcome this situation quickly enough.
There are a few effective techniques that you can employ in a
conversation when you run out of things to say, in order to handle the
situation effectively. Here they are.
1. Think about your day.
There has to be something that happened to you during the day that
you can talk about. If it’s early in the morning, then during the day
before, or the one before that. And you can talk about it, even if it’s
So when you run out of things to say, think about your day a bit and
see if you find something to share: a short story, something you heard
on the news, something you enjoyed doing, almost anything goes.
2. Know and use your strong topics.
As an exercise, take at some point a few minutes to think about some
stuff that constitutes good conversation topics in general and you can
talk about. It could be books, movies, travelling, career, music, sports, politics; there is a wide range of potentially good topics.
Pick the ones that fit you best and create your own short list of
conversation topics. Then when you’re chatting with someone and don’t
know what to say next, think about this shortlist, pick a topic from it
and continue the conversation on that topic.
3. Let the other person speak.
You don’t have to necessarily continue a conversation when it comes
to a stop. Very often, if you just wait a bit and say nothing, you’ll
notice that the other person will say something and thus move the
So sometimes when you run out of things to say, it’s a good idea to
not try to say something else yourself. Instead, let the other person
have the floor and continue the conversation. And usually they’ll do it.
4. Dare to speak.
Many times if seems that you ran out of things to say, but you
haven’t. You have things to say, but you won’t allow yourself to say
them because you think they’re not good enough. So you keep searching
for something better to say.
In my experience as a coach helping others improve their social
skills, this perception is typically wrong. What you have to say is
worth saying. So the best thing you can do is to speak your mind. Be
bold and say what you have to say.
Apply the advice I gave you and your conversations will visibly
improve. There is a long way that your discussions can go and plenty of
opportunities to learn how to take them there.
