8 ways to impress your dates with your polished communication skills
Dating someone from a different cultural background is very exciting, but at the same time is reportedly the greatest challenge when it comes to making it work. And what’s behind that?
Are you concern about stumbling, or being thought foolish, or not being a ‘great orator’? But the truth is that very few people are born great communicators… they learn the ropes, they learn the strategies, and they develop better skills. They all started somewhere, and no matter what situation your speaking skill is now at, you can further develop and polish it, with a few smart strategies.
1. Speak about your passion
This is the best piece of advice when it comes to dating. Often the nerves kick in when you aren’t confident enough in what you are talking about. Therefore make sure you talk about what you are passionate about. Rule of thumb, if you had to get up and speak at a crowed of strangers what would the topic(s) be?
2. Be a good listener before being a speaker
You have to be a good listener to be able to understand your component. To learn about their cultural background, custom, tradition and their special culture attributes, then you will have a good understanding of who are you talking to and how to lead an interesting conversation.
You also need to practice when you are alone. Write down an introduction about yourself or a topic you would like to talk about, record yourself so you can see your strengths and weaknesses. Deliver practice speeches to family and friends, and ask them for constructive feedback.
4. Dress to impress
If you want to make a good impression, look the part. This will build your confidence and also set the scene for your component that you are GOOD before you even open your mouth. Make sure the outfit you are wearing is one that you feel comfortable and confident in.
5. Keep your every topic short and sweet
Choose topics that interesting; suggest you stay away from politics, sensitive issuers. Not to look around when you are talking, keep eyes contact otherwise will give the impression you are not confident in what you are speaking about. So keep their attention on you.
6. Stop saying um and er….
This is purely a result of nerves. Instead of saying um, er or another ‘tic’, be silent and think. Silence is a good thing and a great way to break up your talk.
7. Embrace the adrenaline
Men or women, we all get it. That feeling you get when you see someone is really attractive or handsome … your mouth gets dry, your heart races … this is normal. Everyone gets it. It is adrenaline. Use it to your advantage. You want to start your conversation with excitement. Just take one deep breath and smile, you are in and go for gold.
