When it comes to conversation, 5-minutes of human is a good way to begin.
How’s your family?
How’s your sisters?
How’s your project?
What are your ambitions?
What are your problems?
How did that thing you were working on last month turn out?
Is there anything I can help with?
What did you get up to last night?
What are your interests?
Who’s someone you look up to? Why?
What do you see when you look in the mirror?
The human touch is what we’re all looking for. Every other desire is this one hidden in disguise.
