Talking to people you like can be tricky—one moment, you’re not even thinking about it, and the next, you’re agonizing over saying the right thing. We’re here to help you get the ball rolling and start a juicy conversation with a guy.
Avoid Mentioning Your Intention
Initially, it can be fun and exciting to keep your intentions to yourself. Speaking casually and focusing on having a good, engaging conversation is often the best start.

It Takes Two to Tango
You can’t have a juicy conversation if you’re the only one talking. You need to find a way to engage your crush by asking open-ended questions or by asking his opinions on subjects he’s passionate about.
Avoid Unnecessary Interruptions
Allow your crush time to express his opinions without interrupting. No one wants to talk to someone who’s just waiting for their turn to speak. Wait for him to complete his statements before giving your input, and make sure he does the same for you.
Give Room for Awkwardness
One reason to have a juicy conversation with your crush is to understand him on a deeper level. Sometimes, it gets awkward when there is silence between topics, especially when you don’t know each other well. Remember that awkwardness is inevitable—you’re both human!
There are a number of techniques you can use when you’re learning how to make a conversation not dry. Be careful, though, because compliments can come across as patronizing. However, if you sincerely mean what you are saying, they can show your interest and understanding of someone. An earnest compliment shows that you recognize a skill in the person you’re talking to. Compliments can also put someone at ease and provide a segway into deeper conversation.
Reminisce About Childhood Memories
Everyone has childhood memories that can be effective icebreakers. Start by sharing your own stories and pass the ball by asking about what he remembers from his childhood.
Find Alternative Ways of Communication
The conversation shouldn’t end once you meet in person—you can continue talking through texts or video calls. You can weave the idea into the conversation by saying something like, “I’ve missed you. Do you have time for a video chat?”
Having a juicy conversation with your crush can help strengthen your bond and take the relationship to the next level. It’s crucial to note that it takes a deliberate effort from both of you for the conversation to flow seamlessly. Remember, you can always tell him how you truly feel if you don’t like the way you’re currently communicating.
