If he or she starts engaging in the conversation, you’ll know it’s a good sign.
It’s a great way to introduce yourself and at least get someone’s name and have him or her learn yours.
“Asking for help is a great way to start a conversation,” De Alto says.
“Part of it is starting to recognize that you’re not hitting on a person or chasing them,” De Alto says.
If you don’t get the response you’re hoping for, keep in mind that if you don’t connect with someone, it’s not the end of the world.
If that cute guy or girl is responsive, then it opens up the possibility of getting to know someone better.
Having confidence is also vital, since other people won’t know the best sides of you unless you show them.
If you’re a bit shy, you’ll probably want to be as casual and subtle as possible, and the best way to practice is by having ordinary conversations with people every day.
It’ll make you a more outgoing person overall and also help you react to different situations so you’re not caught off-guard with someone you’re really looking to connect with!
It’s also a great way to start an ongoing relationship, since you have an excuse to help someone back as a thank-you.
