Some people are born with a talent for communication and dating. They’re lucky because most people have to learn those skills. This article will help you to develop your communication and dating skills, so read it carefully.
Get out of the House – Literally and Figuratively
You can’t become good at communicating with other people if you never communicate with anybody. Being an introvert is maybe stopping you from speaking to more people. Maybe you’re just shy, or your confidence is too low. In any case, the first step toward having great communication skills is to start communicating.
Start chatting with people on social media and start having small talks with people you meet in person. It’ll be hard at first, but soon you’ll be relaxed and more confident around people.
Try Speaking in Public
Public speaking is not a joke even to people who have good communication skills. It takes a lot of courage to stand in front of a crowd and state your opinion. That makes speaking in public one of the best ways to increase communication skills. You don’t have to speak in front of 1000 people at some event, just speaking more in front of your friends will be enough for the beginning. While speaking, watch the listener's body language, and try to grab their attention. There are online courses about this topic you might consider taking.
Pay Attention to People Around You
This might sound stupid, but you have to be a great listener to become good at communicating or dating. Also, you have to analyze other people and their interactions. Why? Because if you listen carefully, you’ll have a lot of things to build the conversation on. And if you analyze how other people interact with each other, you’ll notice what works.
Developing the following skills will make you much better at communication and dating:
Active Listening and Hear
Listening is a skill. You have to pay attention to what your partner says, or that doesn’t count as a conversation. To show them you’re truly listening (hearing) ask a question about something they're just said. Ask them to explain something or anything that will show you’re paying attention.
Understand Gestures and Body Language
This is an amazingly valuable skill that will help you in every aspect of your life. After you learn how to read gestures and body language, you’ll become better at work (regardless of what you do), you’ll become more respected among friends, and you’ll become great at dating. You can learn this online by reading and watching tutorials, but you have to test them in real life to make sure your skill really works. How to do that?, read the first paragraph again.
Read Emotions on the Face
This skill will develop alongside the reading of gestures and body language. Every emotion looks the same on every person, so nobody can hide anything (if you know where to look). No, this isn’t mind reading; you won’t know the cause of their emotions. You’ll be able to tell how people feel by looking them in the face.
Capture the Mood by Tone and Behavior
You can tell a lot about somebody's mood by listening to them. Remember how many times you knew mum is angry with you just because you spoke on the phone. You can learn to capture anybody’s mood like that.
Take Control of Your Own Emotions (Emotional Intelligence)
Controlling your emotions is one of the greatest skills you can have. When you have high emotional intelligence, your life becomes easy because you know how to respond to every situation. There are a lot of books on this topic; check them out.
Appreciate the Important People in Your Life
Don’t take anybody for granted because nobody is bound to you forever. Show the important people in your life that you care. They’ll return the favor, and you’ll feel much better.
Respect Cultural Differences
The foundation of all civilized types of communication is respect. You can’t expect somebody to respect you if you don’t respect them. Cultures around the world are different, which makes the world beautiful. Respecting those differences, communication, even dating, with people from different cultures will be much easier.
Upgrade Your Acting Skills
Acting skills will help you understand how to express your thoughts and emotions. You’ll learn a lot about body language too. We advise you to take some acting classes or courses if you want to become better at communicating. Of course, you won’t act “in normal life,” but you’ll learn a lot of stuff that’ll help you become more confident and easy to talk to.
