For some, starting a conversation with someone else is easy, for others, not so much. If you find yourself on the shy side more often than not, don't feel bad. There are many, other people who feel the same way and were nevertheless able to ascend to great heights. For example, A-list celebrities Johnny Depp, Salma Hayek, and Blake Lively have all been outspoken about their shyness in social situations.
The trick to overcoming shyness isn't so much about changing your personality. For most people, once a conversation gets started, it just sort of flows naturally onward. If starting conversations with people has been something you've struggled with in the past, here are a few icebreakers that may help you out.
Make a Comment About Something Pleasant
Commenting about something pleasant, such as a song that's being played nearby that you and the other person can hear, a popular movie on a visible billboard, or even your surroundings can all be ways to open the door for conversation. Just do your best to avoid commenting about the weather; it's more than a little cliché.
Ask What They Think About Something
People generally love to give their opinions. Asking a person about what they think about a topic will almost always elicit a response.
Compliment Their Appearance
Telling someone they’re beautiful or handsome is a lot like talking about the weather - it doesn't really convey that you’ve put much thought into what you have to say. Instead, compliment your new friend’s necktie or a piece of jewelry. People like compliments and if they happen to be wearing something truly noteworthy, you can easily start a conversation about it.
