STEP 2: AVOID THE LULL
This is where most guys hit a wall. "Never leave a conversation because you've run out of things to talk about," Savoy says. At the very least, use something like, "that's just like when . . ." to keep things moving.

Her reaction will open up a new avenue in the conversation.
