Learning how to navigate a conversation is a lot like learning how to ride a bike. You're going to mess up, a lot. Hell, you might even fall, bleed and cry. That said, as soon as you've got a knack for it, you'll never forget. Trouble is, how do you get to that point? Well, using certain conversation tips can be a huge help. There's no shame in admitting you need assistance, no matter how basic you think the skill set may be. You'd be surprised to know that tons of seemingly confident people have had to practice their conversations skills every now and again.
Having come across this reddit thread posed by user, scoobymenace, we decided to hand-select the tips and tricks that we've applied to our own lives, "Conversationalists, how did you become so good at conversation and what pointers would you give to those who aren't?" These can be applied to any situation where conversation is paramount ranging from a first date to a job interview.
Remember: not every person offering advice on how to have a conversation actually knows how to have a conversation. Thankfully, we weeded out the nonsense!
