How to Hack Small Talk

Get to know people quickly.

Don't ask "What do you do?"

Boringgggg. Think of something more clever. Be curious about who the other person actually is.

"What is your story?"

This is a better question because you get to dive into WHO the person is.

"Are you from here?"

You usually get their background and work as well as a more detailed understanding of the person's past

Be Vulnerable

It's okay to show weakness. In fact, it makes people trust you faster. Don't go spilling all your problems, but know when to drop in a little vulnerability

Be Genuine

Be genuinely curious about the other person. Dive deeply into the things you have in common

Have fun!

The best relationships happen when you're having fun!

@satanpriya aww that's not always true. in the end, you probably can't trust everybody 100%. but for every few that you can't trust, there is that 1 that will make everything better. and maybe one day down the line it'll end, but it'll be worth it. all the amazing times you can share. all the things you will learn. and for me, it's worth the risk of being hurt sometimes. or even betrayed sometimes

The truth is that I have lost faith in people. The one thing I learnt so far is that at the end it is you who is your freind and no one else. You know yourself better and can only expect things from yourself. That is why I don't like much interacting with people around me.

@satanpriya because people are what make things happen :) odds are, the person who is best to be your friend, business partner, sole mate, etc. aren't in the 100 people you work with or go to school with through your life. but in the 10,000 people you see around you. and you never know until you try!
