What the conversation when you call?

Talk about anything, just keep the conversation flowing or it will become boring. If you are in school, or working talk about either of these as an example. Talk about whatever comes to mind.

Another answer:

Talking comes easily for some people. For others, it's a struggle for every sentence. Practice, practice, practice, beginning with people who don't intimidate you. Eventually, it'll be easier to talk to people you're attracted to.

It's not at all uncommon for shy people to fall in love with people who love to talk. They're a natural fit. The talker smoothes the couple's social interactions, the quieter person is a sounding board for the talker.

Because you asked this question, you must be one of the quieter people. Embrace your role, and learn to "talk" by asking the kind of questions people like to answer. For example:

* Tell me about your family.

* Who are you close to outside your family?

* What do you believe about God?

* Do you have any strong political beliefs?

* What do you love to study?

* What kinds of movies and television programs do you enjoy?

* What annoys you about people?

* Do you consider yourself an animal lover?

* How do you decide whether or not someone gets to be your friend?

* How much time do you spend online?

* What was your favorite childhood book?

* Where would you live if you couldn't live here?

* What's the most freaked out you've ever been?

* Who's the most over-rated celebrity?

* Have you ever been in an accident?

* How important is religion to you?

* Are you a morning person or a night owl?

* Would you rather watch sports, or play sports?

* Have you ever seen somebody die?

* What book would you take to a desert island?

* What did you struggle with in school?

Avoid yes/no questions. Don't ask "test" questions ("Have you ever read Proust?") that might cause the other person to feel stupid or belittled. Ask questions that cause the other person to imagine, or offer an opinion, and treat those answers with respect.
