Ok, so, too many times i've found myself on the phone to a girl thinking "ohh god, i cant think of anything to talk about!". So, i figured that this must happen to everyone once in a while and so i decided to make this thread as a lifeline to everyone!

Everyone just post something good to talk about, or perhaps an observation of some kind, anything that will spark a good conversation so you won't be sitting there feeling like an idiot when nobody is saying anything.

ps. god i hope this thread doesnt die after like 7 posts like all my other threads do...

i dont hardly ever talk on the phone. i talk to people in person, on aim, or through texting most of the time.

I've never had one of those moments. Whenever there isn't anything to talk about, the conversation is over and I say goodbye?

Yeah, that has occured to me as well.
I just start a conversation about a new movie or something about the girls hobbies and habits and she starts yapping again and everybody is happy.

exactly why texting is creating a much more anti social nation......and other means such as IM....not to say that i dont use them, but they take away the need for healthy conflict.

what you do is you tell a random story of something that happened to you recently. if you don't tell about yourself she won't tell about herself, and it'll be silent. i know it feels like she doesn't' care/wanna know about those things, but she's feeling the exact same way.

It can't be any worse than awkward moments when you're actually talking to her in person, if its on the phone, you can just go "so anyways, I'll talk to you later" or w/e, its very easy to escape that kind of awkwardness.
#19
If you have nothing to talk about on the phone with someone then you probably shouldnt be talking to them. Why not ask them if they have any friends that are less boring and who share your interests?

I know I get the same thing and then it feels like I will have a panic attack. I usually say "I am F**kin wrecked" a hundred or so times.

The same thing happens when instant messenging(sp?) I would be talking to a girl I like and I run out of things to say. Luckily I can always turn the conversation to Music here because all my friends like music.
#22
I usually make fun of the girl in the awkward silence. They love it for some reason...
#24
i find that asking "what are you thinking about" will generally kill a few mins as long as she doesnt say "nothing".

also, secrets are good. start to tell her something and then say "oh never mind" and then she'll take the bait and you can run with a fun game of 'i know something you dont know' for a while.

Yes, I hate that, but usually the girl I'm talking to starts singing random songs or making random noises so it's all good.

I like akward silences. Sometimes when I'm in a group where someone is talking a lot, I'll wait for them to leave or not pay attention for a second, and then I'll tell everyone not to say anything the next time the aforementioned person talks. It's quite interesting to watch someone say something and see it greeted with akward silence and stares.

I usually just ask how life is, or if anything's news. Or brag about my many amazing qualitites......

I have had a few of those, what I usually do is tell them I had something to tell them but I forgot what it was, complain the entire time about you forgetting while in your head you think of something to talk about. Usually buys you like a minute of time.

It's why I hate talking on the phone.
Yet people insist on calling me. Assholes.

On the subject of awkward silences, I just had about a 40 minute one.
I think me and my girl are going through some rough waters.

it happens to me sometimes when i talk to my girlfriend.

then she gets mad when i have nothing to talk about.

its like, ffs, i see her like 5 times a week, and talk to her like 2 times a day on the phone, and yet she expects that im always going to have something to tell her or talk to her about.

i mean, we've been together like 1 year and 4 months, we've talked about pretty much everything.

If you're comfortable enough to be quiet around each other it might be going quiet well.

or she could be cheating on you....

i just thought that random, funny stories would also be a useful idea. interesting things you've heard, and you can replace your friend with you.

for example, i just read this in another thread, and i think it would probably make a conversation of some kind:

'after asking "whats the grossest thing a friend has ever told you" and listened to her answer'
my friend told me that one time he stuck a mirror in th bottom of his toilet to see ho big his asshole got when he took a shit. i still dont know why he'd tell me that....

The only 'awkward' silence I had was the silence after she broke up with me...

The other silence was because we were bored and had nothing to do and she was grounded and we were literally on the phone all day for a week and really had nothing to talk about.

talk about something that they practicly live for ( music, enemys, bands, books ect.) theres plenty of things to talk about its just most of us clam up and our mind goes blank so it becomes even more wierd and more pressure rears its ugly head making it harder to talk about something, or just let them do the talking and occasionaly give them a yeah, cool, thats B ullshit, i know what your talkin bout, how are they doin? Ask some questions to get to them and when you know what they like talk about that (alot of girls like to talk about what they like) leaving the other person feeling like they have had a good conversation and they had someone listen to what there sayin for once with no interuptions or contridictions.


yeah i learned from a long trail of trial and error. Not a fun trail.
