Have you ever been desperate to fall in love with somebody? Is that how you feel right now?
It can change how you chat to anyone in your relationship demographic. Many don't handle it wisely if they are going through a dry spell.
Rather than interacting with people to get to know them, you quickly start fishing or clumsily flirting. You are trying to jump the gun to see if the person is an opportunity rather than getting to know them and discovering that they are a possibility.
Stop. Recognise this behaviour and stop it. This is not you at your best.
Wanting to hook-up with someone merely because they have a boob or whatever is not the best way to get into a rewarding relationship. Sure, you may be thinking that you are so hungry for love that you're happy to kiss anyone, but this is both an unhealthy & unrealistic approach to happiness.
It's also superficial & objective. You only care about what the person is, not who they are.
And this is where real conversation is important.
Conversation helps you connect with the person and see who they really are.
The more you chat to them, the more chance that genuine attraction will ignite. Proximity breeds attraction. (Smothering does the opposite.)
Attraction based on personality is personal & real. Attraction based on appearance alone is imaginary & objective.
What do you want from a relationship, what are you missing out on? Connection? Talk to someone and you are on your way.
The ability to talk to your partner is for the life of your relationship. Good looks won't last that long.
Get lost in conversation. If you are talking with no agenda but to hook-up, you aren't allowing natural chemistry & connection to take place.
Complaining people are boring. If you need to get things off your chest, apply some strategy to it.
It’s no secret that people hate confrontation. But it’s odd how people even avoid good confrontations. When is social media actually the anti-social method?
There are few things more dreaded than a mother-in-law. For the sake of you & your partner, how can you get along?
Why is it important to talk to your pets when they can't answer back?
Deep conversations are extremely rewarding but people are reluctant to ask the big questions to get there. Why?
Your opinion matters, but how badly do you need to argue for it? Awkward Silence are encouraging you to be self-aware next time a discussion gets heated.
A few seconds of silence is not a disaster. If you keep your head, it’s not even a cause for concern. It might even be considered an opportunity.
There is a conversation faux-pas that seems obvious to most, oblivious to others. And as we at Awkward Silence chat to people about conversation, we hear many people complain about it again & again.
