The idea of conversation with a blind date may seem daunting, but in reality, it's one of the best opportunities for true conversation! Think about it -- in front of you sits a person who you have never met before AND who you know very little about. You can start the conversation with the most basic questions -- Where are you from? What do you do for work? Do you have siblings? Do you have pets? What sports do you like to watch or play? The topics are endless. And once you have a topic 'in play,' the best way to keep the conversation going is to listen to the other person and probe further or playback the information you are hearing. Once you get started, it will become less like work and more like fun!
