struggling to make friends try some icebreakers

So I know that its hard to make friends and starting the conversation is the hardest part. What do you even say to someone when you first start talking. Sometimes you can have that awkward silence that everyone hates. Well if you struggle with getting the conversation started try these ice breakers! Answer the ones I listed below, you don't have to do them all but whatever makes you happy. Then if you have your own ice breakers that you think are helpful then add them as well.  

 

- Tell me if you could pick three people in total from past and present to have dinner who would it be?

- As a child what did you wanna be when you grow up?

- If you were a dog which breed would you be?

- What is the weirdest food combination that you like?

- What is the weirdest fact that you know?

Re: struggling to make friends try some icebreakers

Gotta love icebreakers!

This question always does my head in but I think Leonardo Da Vinci would be cool, Nelson Mandela is a classic... no idea about a third one. Maybe Marie Antoinette or someone like that.

@clarii3105 Ok but sitting there with Sigmund Freud would be SUCH a trip Smiley LOL

A vet for a while there! Still wouldn't mind it but I'm happy with my career path Smiley Happy

@Maybel9595 Are you thinking Cocker Spaniel??

I think I'd be a poodle because I have wavy/curly hair. Tragic backstory but when I was in high school I had to write a thing about what I didn't like about myself and I wrote I have hair like a poodle and my teacher came back and said but poodles are also very smart!!! Dark and interesting times Smiley LOL

I've literally been eating biscoff spread out of the jar recently. Crepes with cheese and maple syrup is good too!

My favourite icebreakers:

- if you had to invent a new Shapes flavour, what would you choose?

- what's the most boring fact you can think of about yourself?
