How to strike a conversation on a date

Posted: Updated:

The Engagement Coach Adrienne Laursen, LMFT, tells you the best way to start a conversation – starting with a complete stranger and onto a dating prospect!


1. Practice makes perfect. Find something you have in common with a stranger at a store and strike up a conversation, whether it be an item on a shelf or where they got their bag.

2. Online? Dating online often starts with an email. Mention someone's profile to show you've taken the time to read about his or her interests.

3. Say things went well and you got a date. Don't be too pushy too fast. Talk about what happened on the date and stick to things you talked about already.
