Getting a Conversation Going
Have you ever wondered how to make more friends online?
(1) Have you ever wondered how to make more friends online?

Well, here's the secret:

Leave positive comments on other people's posts. Saying nice things to people is a great way to get their attention and make yourself stand out from the crowd online. If you're involved with a special interest forum or group, make nice comments on other people's posts. Compliment them or ask them questions about their post.

For example, if someone you follow on Instagram posts a picture of a new book they've just started reading, you might comment something like, "I've been wanting to read that! How do you like it so far?"

Or, if someone you're following posts an image of their new haircut, compliment them on it by saying, "Omg! You look amazing!"

(2) We know that you love to chat with your friends while playing video games.

But how can you continue these conversations outside of the game?

In this article, we'll cover three ways to keep up with your gaming buddies after the game is over:

1. Ask if they'd like to talk outside of the game sometime. If so, exchange contact information with them to talk more offline. You could also try exchanging information with them on an app that you can use to chat via text or voice, such as Discord or Facebook Messenger.

2. Continue your video game chats outside of the game. If you find yourself chatting with certain people regularly in game, ask if they’d like to talk outside of the game sometime. If so, exchange contact information with them to talk more offline, such as by sharing your phone number, social media username, or email address.

3. Try playing video games together instead of solo! Playing with others can be a great way to meet new people and make friends.

(3) Did you know that asking someone questions is a great way to keep the conversation going?

It's true! When talking with a new person, it can be tempting to ask all the usual getting-to-know-you questions right away. But once you've exhausted the basics, you might want to start asking more in-depth questions about your shared interest.

For example, if you and your friend are both big fans of [fictional game], don't just ask them who their favorite character is or what their favorite weapon is—ask them what their first reaction to the game was when it came out, or what they think about the latest expansion.

(4) If you’re thinking about asking someone out, you might be hesitant because you don’t know if they feel the same way. It can be scary to put yourself out there and risk getting rejected, but it’s also exciting to think that someone might like you back!

If you live near each other, try finding out if they want to meet up in-person. After talking with the person a few times, you might decide that you'd like to spend time with them in-person. This is important for deepening your friendship with them, but it can take some people longer than others to want to meet up. Ask when you feel ready, but be respectful if they say "no."

Try saying something like: "I'd love to meet for coffee sometime and talk more about movies with you. Are your free this Saturday?"
