How to Avoid Awkward Silences

Have you ever started talking to a woman (or group of women) and run out of things to say after only a few seconds or minutes? Or, have you ever gone on a date started panicking half-way through because your lack of conversation keeps creating awkward silences between you and the woman?

Don’t worry, most guys have that problem and it is EASILY fixed. When a guy has the problem of ‘running out of things to say’, it’s usually because he:

  1. Is too worried about saying the wrong things.
  2. Is trying too hard to impress the woman.
  3. Doesn’t listen well-enough to what the woman is saying (and not saying).
  4. Doesn’t use enough humor to open the woman up and get rid of any awkward tension between them.
  5. Doesn’t use enough (or any) flirting to take himself out of the ‘friend zone’ and cause the woman to feel sexual attraction.
  6. Is unclear what topics of conversation women find interesting.
  7. Is putting on a persona, instead of just being himself and saying whatever he feels like saying.
  8. Doesn’t have much experience talking to women, so he is unsure what he needs to do differently when talking to a woman.
  9. Is too neutral or unemotional in his expressions and energy.
  10. Is being too uptight, instead of just chatting to the woman in a relaxed, fun and light-hearted way.
  11. Is unsure how to tell stories and share information about himself in an interesting way.
  12. Is not asking the right questions to get the woman to open up and talk freely.

The good news is that all of these mistakes (and more) can be prevented quickly and easily by learning and then using the right conversation techniques. Let’s look at one of the problems from the list above and give you an example of how to fix it:

12. Is not asking the right questions to get the woman to open up and talk freely.

This one is interesting. Guys who are great at conversation can make even the most COLD, distant and ‘stuck up’ woman open up to them and start talking freely. In fact, with the right techniques you can make a woman not want to stop talking to you for HOURS. There are many things that a great conversationalist does to make this happen. One of those is to ask the RIGHT questions, in the RIGHT order. Some guys make the mistake of asking simple, standard questions that tend to lead to a DEAD END in the conversation. After the woman has finished answering the ‘simple’ or ‘standard’ question, there’s really nothing more to talk about on the subject so it dies…and all that’s left is an awkward silence.

I must point out: While asking the right questions is very important, it doesn’t solve everything on its own. You need to know how to make women feel emotional and excited about talking to you, by using a number of other techniques revealed in The Ultimate Guide to Conversation. One great question that I like to ask during a conversation with a woman I’ve just met is, “So, what’s the best thing that has happened to you in the last few months?” You’ll find that women tend to smile and think hard about the last few months of their life. When she comes back with an answer, you will have just discovered the BEST THING to be talking to her about!

If you’d like to learn how to be a master conversationalist, by using our proven techniques – then I recommend that you download and listen to The Ultimate Guide to Conversation. You’ll discover how to talk your way into sex, dates, love and relationships with the women of your choosing.

About Me

Dan Bacon

My name is Dan Bacon and I used to be hopeless with women. I lacked confidence in myself and couldn't get women to like me. Despite being a good guy, women just weren't interested. I couldn't work it out!

When I discovered the controversial secrets about women that I now teach here at The Modern Man, women began flooding into my life and I've been having an AMAZING time ever since.

I've already helped 1,000s of guys to achieve instant success with women (view success stories) and I would love to help YOU too. If you are sick and tired of not getting results with women and would like to try something that is absolutely guaranteed to work for you, then get started here.

I now have a great girlfriend and my parents have finally stopped pestering me, except now they want grandchildren...!" Wei

"My ex girlfriend loves me more than ever now that she can relax into her feminine mode. Even though I don’t want an exclusive relationship anymore, she still wants to date and have sex with me and hopes that I will change my mind. Your ex back system is priceless and has given me an insight into women that was missing in my life until now." Cameron


"Getting your book The Flow has been the best investment I've ever made in myself as a man. It has not only taught me how to be confident, but has given me the type of skills with women that make my friends super jealous. I am currently seeing four different girls at once. Don't hate the playa! Hahaaa..." Tyrone


"After my wife and I separated I didn’t know where to turn for help. I tried a bunch of things that I’d found online, but it was just pushing her further away from me. Another guy was in the picture so I knew that I needed to act fast. A friend suggested The Modern Man, I got the Ex Back program and her and I are back together in a better relationship than we had before. I've become a better . . .

"Approaching women was a nerve-wracking experience for me until I decided to learn from Dan and his team. The Flow helped me overcome my fears, become confident and get results fast.
