That scenario is awful, so in this video you're going to learn 5 easy ways to start a conversation in any situation.

0:16 - #1: "Hey, I don't think I've met you yet, I'm..."
0:43 - #2: "Hey, I know this is totally random, but..."
1:25 - #3: The "Tourist" Technique.
2:12 - #4: The "Ben Franklin".

  • 1) Hey I don't think I've met you yet. I'm ______ 2) Hey I know this is totally random but _____ (whatever you notice about the person or situation) 3) Tourist Technique (Allow yourself to be the lost tourist and ask locals for recommendations) "Hey I'm new to the area do you ___" 4) Ben Franklin Method (Ask for a small favor and then start the conversation; indirect method) 5) Spontaneous Compliment follows by a Cold Read "Wow you've got great style are you a fashion designer?"; Has to be genuine and avoid complimenting body Thanks for everything Charlie!!

  • I have a problem. I’m too scared to say anything to my friends because I’m not confident enough and I’m scared that they might make fun of me like they always do. What shall I do? I need to start speaking a lot more and become more confident.

" ... all my close Friends tell me that i thought you r one of those pepole that just want to stay alone when i'm completely the opposite that's why all the pepole that started by saying hi are my close friends now .... but me saying hello to a stranger aaaaa no thanks ..... idk maybe i'm scared of someone seeing me as weird or trying too hard to make friends this is what i thinck will happen if i say hi to a stranger me : hi ..... how are you him : ( i never talked to him befor why is he talking to me now ) aa.. good hh wby ? me : ( i kniw it ) good and then just scilence me : i can't belive were almost 2021 him : hhhh yes weird right ... okay i need to go now my friends are there me : 👁👄👁 Ummm i'm probably traumatized by somthing but that's what i thinck will happen if i say hi to somone i dont know

  • Love these tips! Definitely true bout the body comment making people uncomfortable! Someone did the "cold read" technique with me one day, complimenting my dress asking if I'm into fashion, and then proceeded to say "I couldn't help but notice you have a beautiful body shape, sorry but I had to look" something like that 😬 All I wanted to do was leave that convo asap!!!

  • well the 4th question wont work because when u ask someone do u have any recommendation they can just say no. also that question is too long to not become awkward while saying it. according to me one shouldnt ever ask one word replies questions especially if its a yes or no questions just ask what would u recoomend instead do u know xyz? also thats not a good conversation starter u can use question one and i the person seems to be from the town and seems to know well than u can ask the question.

  • I think your videos are very interesting and I learn a lot with them. The only thing is that you speak too fast and sometimes it’s hard to absorb the content. I end up distracted and having to rewind to watch a part that I missed again. There were a few times that I gave up watching a video because of that. I hope you don’t get me wrong. It’s just my opinion and probably most people don’t think that way. Great video btw. Thank you!!!

  • I have an odd topic recommendation. You should look at the Paul Bernardo interview. Despite the dark subject matter, you can see how a psychopath uses so many psychological tricks and how he manages to keep people who are in positions of power on their toes in the discussion. He displays some methods I have seen in your videos, and the way he seems disinterested and often above the whole event is quite fascinating. I think he provides an excellent example of charismatic and manipulative tools, even if he does it for terrible reasons.

  • Those are cool but when I translate them back to my language [Polish] they sound ridiculous. There's a cultural difference, I think people in European countries [maybe excluding southern ones where it's hot and sunny all the time] are more reserved and less open in such random situations. Even the line "I know it's totally random (...)" is hard to translate, as in Polish the word "random" is more connected to maths, meaning more or less "stochastic". Can you imagine saying to someone "hey, I know it's totally stochastic..."? Me neither.
