What to talk about ...
Hi, i'm writing you because
I'm having a little trouble with
something. There's this boy at my school
that I like and who likes me. But the thing is I'm not allowed for boys to call
We actually started talking to each other last week. Since I
can't have phone calls he told me to call him. Since I'm so shy which he knows
I know that if I call him I wouldn't know what to say.
He gave me his number
and I called but we really didn't have much to talk about because we didn't know
what to talk about.
We were silent for a while until I came up with a question.
Since I haven't done this before I was hoping you could give me something to talk
about on the phone to him.
Shyness can seem
like the end of the world, but all it really means is that you have to take things
a little more slowly than some folk.
Just talk about things that you know you
have in common - things that happened at school, latest movies, books .. remember
you don't have to agree on everything!
I'd avoid talking about your relationship
too much; concentrate on getting an easy friendship first.
A friend of mine
used to cheat ... she'd write three words on a piece of paper, two things they
had in common, or had discussed before .. and one new one.
Don't forget he
probably feels much as you do, so don't feel you must do it all yourself!
