How can I improve in conversation?

   Don't talk too much about yourself. Nobody cares.

   Don't talk about it, if it's something clearly personal.

   Compliments are generally acceptable, but use your brain. "Nice shoes" is good, but "I like your eyes" is a bit weird. "I like your shirt or your pants" can make a woman uncomfortable, because you're supposed to flatter what's underneath in some cases.

   If it's politics, test the waters, because it can be a very divisive issue, especially in a group of people, and especially in America.

   Religion even more.

   Current events are generally correct.

   Hypothetical events are even better.

   Talking about people is fine, but don't gossip.

   Do not complain or complain, especially about your life.

   A conversation should go both ways and should be pretty much the same.

   Do not stand directly in front of them, it is better to stand to the side but slightly in front of them. This creates a good relationship and is less adversarial.

   Don't look directly at them all the time.

   Don't forget to blink.

   The best opportunities to practice are in places where there are natural excuses to leave or cuts. In the buses or waiting for them is fine. The airports are excellent.

You both know that at some point the conversation will end and there's no pressure to come up with an excuse to leave.

   Learn to read how a conversation is going and adopt a polite exit strategy.

   Ask good questions about the stories they tell; it shows you're following them and gives them the opportunity to tell the story in a different way.

   Keep it as stylish as the other person wants it to be.

   Most people don't like to talk about their work. "What do you do?" it's going to be boring or hated, but sometimes great.

   Sex is rarely a good topic, but with the right people it's probably the best.

   Educate yourself on a variety of topics, at least enough to be able to go on and give your opinion if someone asks you.

   It is better to ask more specific questions than general questions. With the exception of a greeting, "How are you?" as bland as possible.

   Be honest. If you don't know something, say you don't know. If you don't have an opinion, say you don't.

   Being able to say the above without making it awkward; this usually involved a transition or moving away from the subject.

   Something is only awkward if you mean it; if you don't care, they probably won't be uncomfortable.

   Practice the real skill.

   In general, people who talk the most say the least; don't be that person
