Conversation is crucial to a good relationship (of any kind).
It doesn’t have to be sparkling, witty or intelligent (though this helps).
However it does have to be honest, communicative and equal!
I’ve never heard a girl say to me,
“I had this great conversation with a guy, he talked all about himself, then he was silent and didn’t talk to me, and what he did say, he lied about! That was fantastic!”
What I have heard on occasion is:
“I had this great conversation with a guy, he really listened to me, and opened up about himself. I felt we really got to know each other.”
This works in any situation, a guy, a girl, a friend, a colleague or even a stranger.
What are you really trying to say?
