Awkward Silence Happens: Re-break The Ice With These Five Questions When it comes to conversation, everything is going great…until it’s not. Awkward silences strike on their own terms and there’s just no telling when. Say you’re at dinner. Maybe things were going great over the appetizer course, and it was smooth sailing through the entrée, then mid-bite…crickets….and you’ve got nothing else to talk about. It’d be great if the date could just end there, but you’ve got dessert and the bill blocking the exit. You have to ride it out.
At this point, the odds of you getting or wanting a second date with your table partner are slim to say the least, but that doesn’t mean your night has to be a loss. We’ve put together 5 sure things to get your date to talk, or at least participate in conversation to make those final moments together bearable. Who knows, you might actually re-ignite the spark and if not, at least they’ll save you the trouble of whipping out your awkward turtle.
1) Favorite woodland creature…. Ready….Go.
2) Say you’re stuck in an elevator…for 9 hours: Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson or Snooki?
3) Weapon of choice for the zombie apocalypse? We’ve got dibs on the samurai sword.
4) So about that global warming thing? You think it’s a myth?
5) Favorite dead president? Go.
If all else fails, order yourself another drink and start talking about your pets. If that fails too, order yourself another drink, call a cab and pass your tongue-tied date the bill. They’re too paralyzed to protest anyway. Better luck next time but the best of luck to you this time.
