All small talk starts with conversation starters. In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro presents five awesome conversation starters. Alpha is presently the 'Chuck Norris' of small talk. He discusses about how small talk and conversation starting became a defense mechanism for him when switching schools as a kid. He said that this skill paid off for his profession as a personal trainer, which he had to hold boring and monotonous conversations with all types of people. Small talk increases your confidence level by being able to engage people and make them feel like they've known you for years. Bottom line, the better you practice small talk, the better you get. Conversation Starters to Get the Party Poppin'! 1. The casual open - clear and friendly 2. The non what-do-you-do-for-a-living opening - gets people talking about their hobbies and passions 3. Event specific opening - every gathering is hosted which using this open, you can learn a bit about the people. 4. The highlight reel - simple and easy 5. So, what's your story? - it's fun, quirky, random, and playful for a casual environment

Girl comes to me today on a iatrical beaurocracy office and says "hey do we get any numbers for standing in line?" her body straight on my right and I look her briefly and just reply politely "no, there's none of that, you're next after me." What I shoulda said was "no but if you really want any numbers on paper you should have my phone number" another fail 😱

I’m a female and watch your videos. They’ve really helped me. Men always say they find me intimidating/unapproachable. I’m really shy and insecure, it’s keeps me from so many guys bc I look like what I’m not lol... anyway Thanks

Really appreciate the advice man, had a great first date after watching some of your videos. We had an awesome time and are going back out tonight. It takes more bravery to admit you need advise and to seek self help rather than think you got it all figured out. You the man.

There’s only 1 opener you’ll ever need to remember and use... thank me later “hey! how’s your day going?” simple, straight forward, about them, to the point, good conversation starter, and most people follow up with how about yours. then, you respond about your day and elaborate on yourself. the end. good luck. alpha E

Love your work. You are very likeable and inspirational and know what you are talking about but please don't use the word "awesome". I've even seen on children's clothing in Moscow. I'm your age and it makes me cringe. Keep it for the feminised millennials who think they know it all

How to exit a conversation especially during small talks without being awkward? I usually say, "Ohh okay." Then smile a bit then turn away. Or "Ok I'll be going now." Then waves. But I still think that's awkward lol.

great work Alpha appreciate it. I am from southern part of India TBH where most of your tips wont work. Can't even think of starting conversation to some random person on the street or the cute girl in the room as people find it abnormal and the person finds it too creepy and annoying. I wish you can help me on the case. thankyou

Ramzi Bekki (10 months ago)
"Kinda strange isn't it (Now the other person is curious to know what's strange)" Then follow it up with an observation. I was doing the question observation directly but this one seems more effective! Try it out and tell what do you think!

Heeey, Alpha M (and whoever else reading this comment section too)... 😃 How about (If a girl/woman's wearing a Cladda Ring)- "Hey, I noticed your ring you've got, ☺ Nice ring. 🤔😃 Is that a Clauda ring? I heard about those before, their pretty neat. Is that the one where it's reversible? Where if you point it in one direction it means you're single, & pointing it the other direction means you're taken & already got somebody?". 🙂 Then she'll reply back with what she heard about those. & ☺ If she's wearing it in the Open Heart (or single/available) direction... 😏Then ya may have the chance to invite her (somewhere) to go out on a date with ya, & ask if she's interested in ya.

When I want to start a conversation, I usually ask people's opinion about what I'm dressing, like " what do you think about my shoe? Does it looks good with this outfit?" Or the classic " hi, saw you and thought wow that girl is cute, I want to come to her and say hi, so hi", and both works fine.

I've gotten comfortable starting conversations and be able to keep it going but then I have problems when the person isn't talkative and then we come to an awkward hault and don't know where to go.

"If you knew that both Democrats and Republicans were working together in a very bipartisan manner to bankrupt America with titanic debt and you had to pick a number between zero and ten, with zero being like Village Idiot Level and ten being Einstein Genius Level, as to how smart it is to waste your vote on either wing of the bankruptcy party what number would you say?" That works with a wide variety of people from all walks of life.

1) the causal open: So what are you up to today? 2) What do you like to do for fun when you’re not working? 3) How do you know the host ? 4) You having a good week? What’s been the highlight? 5) So, what’s your story ? My own: 6) Hey I’ve not met you yet, what’s your name ? I wanna ask: If anyone came up and asked you one of these would you find it weird ?
