How to Keep Your Crush Glued to You with Interesting Topics

Interesting Topics

Having some interesting topics to debate about with your crush will make both of you come closer to each other. It also gives them something to remember you for when you are not around. However, most people freeze and clam up when they are around their crush. They can’t find something interesting to talk about.

The truth is that this is completely normal. It happens even to the most talkative and poised people. But you can change that by learning about the funniest and most controversial topics that will keep the conversation with your crush going. Here are some tips on how to keep the conversation with your crush going.

1. Conquer That Fear

This is the most important thing you have to keep at the back of your mind when talking to your crush. Although it is normal to feel nervous around your crush, do not let that fear ruin your chance to impress them. The best way to conquer that fear is not to, continually, mull over what they think of you or if they like you.

Also, keep in mind the fact that having a conversation with your crush is not just about impressing them and getting them to like you, but making sure that you like them too. Remember that a crush doesn’t start with deep love and connection. It usually kicks off as a physical attraction and flirtation.

So instead of being too concerned about how they feel about you, just focus on getting to know them better. Paying too much attention to what you say only makes you come off as stiff and insecure.

2. Be Confident

The last thing you want when talking to your crush is to come off as unsure of yourself. This can easily turn someone off, especially if they are interested in having an open and honest conversation with you. So, try as much as possible to show confidence.

But this doesn’t mean that you fake your confidence, because it will take just a few seconds for your crush to notice that you are not being real. Also, listen to what they are saying and ask the right follow-up questions. You should also take time to answer their questions honestly and allow them to answer yours.

Also, try as much as possible to stay calm and collected throughout the conversation. That way, you will be able to talk about anything that matters. Just remember to keep the conversation as open and honest as possible, and do not be afraid to differ with their opinions, albeit politely.

3. Manage Your Expectations

When you are talking to your crush, bear in mind the fact that anything can happen. They will either like you and look forward to having another conversation with you, or they will be reluctant to talk to you again. So, do not expect them to develop an intimate connection with you straight away.

Also, don’t be too concerned about how they feel about you during and after the conversation. Just remember that this is just the start of the two of you getting to know each other. This will keep you relaxed and focused on the conversation.
