Spicing things up in a relationship

Chat Forum Talk about topics not related to MapleStory

So I'm in this relationship with this girl. We've talked for 2 hours or more per say via Skype for the past 4-5 weeks. I'm actually going to meet her this Saturday for the first time, but recently we've just had NOTHING to talk about. Like everything has been talk about. So how do I exactly have things be somewhat interesting?

You can never really run out of things to talk about..you have as many things to talk about as there are things in the visible universe. But, I feel like you're really asking how to avoid small talk..so the answer is IDK HOMIE GL PULL OUT D

I met my wife online a decade or two ago. Whenever we'd meet or chat I'd do the ultra-lame thing of having a set of 10-15 topics memorized that I could talk about and crack jokes about.

I'm not saying you need to script your small talk, but having a set of go-to stories and topics that you can wittily chat about in a casual manner will help you keep the conversation going.

After awhile it'll become second nature and you won't need to literally have e mental (or physical!) list of topics to chat about. In fact, I'd highly advise treating life as a set of opportunities to gather funny anecdotes. When you have that perspective you'll always be able to be a great person to hang out with for a date, business lunch, flight, whatever.

Interesting (to me anyways) sidenote- My career got off on a huge head-start due to my ability to tell a funny anecdote. It got me my first job (in a very competitive field) by making me stand out from the rest of the equally as intelligent and skilled crowd. Out of 12 geniuses I was the one that could tell a story and hang out with the hiring manager.

Think of questions to ask her and start a convo from there

If you freak out and forget the things you prepared beforehand, just look around you. You'll find something that you can talk about. The other day, the same thing happened to me, so I looked around and saw a bus. We then had a 20 minute discussion about public transportation.

Keep it natural. Be yourself. Women, at least most of the ones who are worth while, like an honest man. Be kind gentle, but not too much. Don't fake it, always be happy to her.

Hm ok thanks. Problem is, is that she's homeschooled and really restricted. So sometimes it's hard talking about stuff she has little knowledge of

You should move on, or else it'll just be awkward and forced.
