How to Get a Conversation Started

10. May 2010 by Christy 0 Comments

One of the difficult things about online dating is starting a conversation with a beautiful stranger. What do you talk about? Here are a few ideas.


Common Interests

One excellent way to start a conversation with a lady is to mention things the two of you have in common. Do you both like to travel? Ask about her favorite vacation. Are you both into skiing or tennis? Mention the shared interest or send a photo of you enjoying the sport. If you and a lady have a lot in common, the conversation possibilities are endless. Not only that, but by bringing up shared interests you show that you took the time to read her profile and that you are genuinely interested in finding a soul mate and not just another pretty face.



A lady’s profile photos can make for a good topic of conversation. If she is pictured at a beautiful park or a beach, ask where it is and if she goes there often. If she’s wearing a unique costume ask what inspired her to wear it. Many of the lady’s also pose with motorcycles, animals, food, or some other noteworthy prop. Ask open-questions about her photos and you’ll likely get some interesting responses. As an added bonus, you’ll once again stand out from the crowd as most men only talk about a lady’s beautiful face or hot body. 


Her Favorite Things

Another easy way to get a conversation rolling is to ask a lady about her favorite things. Favorite foods, colors, animals, music are all good starting points. However, take it one step further and ask why something is her favorite. This will get you more than one or two word responses and will provide more insight into what makes her tick.


Common interests, favorite things, and the story behind a photo are just three conversation starters. The more practice you get starting a conversation, the easier it will be to approach Russian women online. Good luck!
