So you think talking on the phone is a waste of time? Guess what? Your woman definitely doesn’t! There are some things that men and women can never agree on, like the pleasures of shopping, the joy of watching rom coms together, the love of blueberry cheesecake, and of course, talking on the phone for hours! Talking on the phone daily and for a prolonged time is definitely a relationship must-have for women. So it’s about time you leave your reluctance aside and be a great boyfriend on the other side of the phone:
1. Talk About Daily Individual Lives
So you think talking about your day is lame and boring? Think again! Talking about each other’s daily lives can help both of you understand more about each other. So remember, talking about what time you woke up today, what you ate for lunch, how many cigarettes you smoked, and all the like, should be met with an earnest response, not boring monosyllables!
2. Discuss Movies And TV Shows
Thanks to pop culture, we have tonnes of movies and television shows to talk about with our babes (without getting bored!); making for hours of interesting conversations with a refreshing perspective to add to the conversation.
3. Ask Open-Ended Questions
Ask her questions that need an answer beyond a simple "yes" or "no". Have a list of "safe" questions at your disposal, so that after you hit the arrow in her direction, she keeps gabbing away. For example, questions about the kind of clothes she likes, her opinion of the present political scene, etc. will keep her well engaged and entertained.
4. Multitask A Little
Don’t think of talking on phone as a waste of time. Instead, multitask and get low priority things done as you speak to her. But yeah, sometimes, you may want to focus solely on the conversation itself. Get genuinely interested in what she has to say. So sit down, concentrate lovingly into her voice on the other side of the phone receiver and just listen.
5. Don’t Reveal Too Much!
Always leave her wanting more! Why do you think James Bond is sexy to women? Because he is mysterious and unpredictable. So weave a web of mystery around your conversational style. Don't reveal every teeny, insignificant detail about your life. Maybe you have diarrhea, but save that one from being part of the talk!
6. Hang Up Gracefully
Start saying your goodbyes at least five minutes before the stop. Saying goodbye to a woman on the phone is a tricky business, as she takes offence if you simply hang up abruptly saying, "Gotta go, game's on,"! Let her ease into the finale. Try signing off using sincere statements about how you enjoyed the conversation and telling her you want to talk to her soon. If you really are in a big rush, tell her your laptop is missing, and your cupboard’s lock is broken!
