Top 3 Dinner Conversation Tips

Learn the top three ways to improve your dinner conversation from manners expert Faye de Muyshondt in this Howcast video.


Hi, I'm Faye de Muyshondt with social sklz, here to chat with you about the top tips for dinner conversation. Before you head out for dinner, make sure that you have in mind a few things to talk about. You might want to scan the news before you head out to a dinner party.

This way, you are on top of what's happening in the world today. And that's going to give you a few things to talk about over dinner. Also, think about a few things that you are up to personally. People want to know about you, they don't just want to know about news and the weather, they want to know about you. So what are three things that you have going on right now, that you can talk about. Whether it be school, whether it be a personal relationship, whether it be a hobby that you're involved with. Have some information to share on you and your personal life. Also, before you go to dinner, before you meet up with people, if these are people that you know, jog your memory and think about questions you can ask them that pertain to their lives specifically.

And in a dinner setting, when you're meeting people saying is that you're going to want to steer away from our politics, are religion are taboo subjects that are sticky for anyone. As you're conversing during the meal, make sure that you're going the extra mile to share information too. There's nothing worse than sitting next to someone, who offers up one word responses to your questions. And I always say, during dinner conversations keep it positive, keep it light, keep it fun, even if you have difficult things to share. Make sure that you go back to the positive too. Those are just a few tips for dinner conversations.
