Singles Nights Cork: How To Avoid Awkward Silences

Singles nights Cork based, such events can be prone to awkward silences. It isn’t that you don’t have anything to say, it’s just that your mind is working so hard to sound interesting that you can’t think of anything at all! And it can be embarrassing for both parties.

Thankfully, there are ways to get over these awkward silences and either make sure they don’t happen at all, or reduce them drastically.

If you have rehearsed some questions and potential answers you are less likely to get flustered when the time comes. Try to avoid using hackneyed phrases and clichés when speaking to your date. They will sound rehearsed, and may come across as you being insincere. If this happens your date is likely to stop talking, and worse still may stop listening to you. This is a recipe for an awkward silence. A sincere compliment is an effective way of getting the conversation started during singles nights UK based. But, it must be meant, if not your date will pick up on this. Try not to keep apologising if you can’t think of anything to say, that is just as bad, if not worse than silence. Instead make an honest, but positive observation about the venue. This will give your date something to respond to, and may get the conversation going again. Finally, if there is a silence don’t panic. This just makes it harder to think of anything!
