Imagine this, you’re at the party and you’re new here. So many new faces, chattering voices, laughing loudly and then you look over at the table nearby and you think, “Oh My God. I know her from my biology class. Oh no she’s looking at me. What do I do? WHAT DO I DO?!” Social anxiety has officially taken you over.
It’s a very common situation that most of us often fall into. It can be you in your new office, new class or a new friend group. It’s natural for some of us to be at a loss of words and not know what to talk about even when we try so hard. Human life is more or less, constantly being defined by the social network a person maintains. Studies also show that people often look for friends with good social skills which makes friendship development much easier for both parties.

So, what if, we can provide you with some very exciting questions to maintain the sizzling conversation that you wish to have with your friends or best friends. Want to know what they are? We suggest you keep reading!
