    i'd like some advice on how to start conversations, and also how to keep them going.
    any advice will be appreciated. :)

    peace

    Well man, all you really need to do is get over the fear of being yourself. I hope that that's not your problem, but it is a major reason most people don't talk. Just be yourself. Also ask the person about themselves, because most people prefer to talk about themselves. Also make sure to respond to what they say, that will keep the converstion going and may lead to them asking questions about you...that's how you find out you have things in common with other people. Hope this helped.

    Peace and I wish you only luck,

    Al

    just be confident.
    don't say anything major when ur talkin to someone for the first time (ie. embarassing nicknames, etc.)
    reallly listen to what they're saying and make a good impression

    To start an open-ended friendly conversation...ask about school, work, their weekend, or like me and be totally random and ask things like "Can you polka?"...

    haha, thanks man :)

    i sort of agree. too bad we can't communicate telepathically.
    if we could talk the way we think, oh man..that would be so much easier.

    i normally do ask about school, work, weekend, etc. which seems to get kind of repetitive and uninteresting after a while.
    what are some questions i could ask after all the basic questions have been answered?

    Well because you are a little younger, maybe ask what said person plans on doing after high school...

    If theother person is good at conversing, they should be able to throw out little "gifts" if you will in their answers. And yu as someone who is equally as interested in talking to them should be able to pick up on these "gifts"...

    For example, if you ask how their weekend went, and they reply that they went out to Such and Such resturant you may:
    1)Say that you've never been there and ask what it is like
    2)Say that you have been there and aybe carry on a short discussion of it (never be like "ewww, that place is totally disgusting, how can you EAT there" though)
