“That’s nothing”, I would say, “one girl I met recently had been called by a guy she had just met three times before she even got home! No one ever took offense that I was sharing others’ stories: the truth is, everyone, myself included, just loves to hear that they’re not the only ones struggling.Also, I would ask general questions like how long she had been online dating, if she had any success, if she gets a lot of contacts, and other non-intrusive conversations.It isn’t that I gained confidence, I just planned ahead.First, as mentioned previously, I intentionally kept first dates short and only extended the “good” ones..action_button.action_button:active.action_button:hover.action_button:focus.action_button:hover.action_button:focus .count.action_button:hover .count.action_button:focus .count:before.action_button:hover .count:before.u-margin-left--sm.u-flex.u-flex-auto.u-flex-none.bullet.

Aside from making excellent small-talk, these conversations also humanize you.You’re no longer some (potentially weird) person they have just met.
Aside from the fun of discussing online dating, using their profile to fuel other small-talk is a great idea.
It’s up to you what you want to talk about but I would recommend being open to discussing your online dating experiences.
I found this made for excellent small-talk and I also found that once I started, my dates had stories that they were excited to share.
Favorite television shows, hobbies, professions and most other specifics provided in the profile are excellent topics because, chances are, she will want to talk about these things.
I would also recommend keeping up on current events (even though I found most of my dates weren’t doing the same) and finding some other light-hearted conversation fodder. I live in Pittsburgh and at the time my city had been voted the worst city for singles.
