I need help please!

I have met a guy on Facebook through a mutual friend and we have been chatting on there. How do I move from talking about the weather and things like that into talking about other things? I've never met or talked to someone like this online, so it feels a little strange. We seem to have good conversation (no dull moments) but I'm ready to take it to the next level without getting "too" personal if you know what I mean. Thanks for the help!!

  • What are your common interests? what area does he live in, has he attended any functions locally? Do not have fear, part of being behind a computer screen means they can't "see" your reactions! They can't see you scrunch up your faces, eyes bug out in shock, or dropping jaw, or whatever... What are his hobbies? What does he do in his free time? What shows does he watch? Latest movie he's seen?

  • Just be you, let it go natural. If you plan it, it will go odd. Talk about family, work, where you went to school jobs hobbies etc. Thats alot of conversation without going anywhere near sex. If I got you right.

  • Honestly, it's just a matter of bringing up a subject. If you're interested in what he aspires to be, then ask him what he aspires to be. If you're interested in if he wants kids one day, then ask him if he wants kids. Nothing should be off limits in natural conversation. Either he answers the questions or not, but it's important that you at least try to get the information you're curious about.

  • This is a little funny to me, not in a bad way but this is how my husband and I met. A friends we shared in common that we both knew. We both just kinda started talking about if we wanted childern and to be married some day, just little thing to start knowing each other a little better and what the other one wanted out of life.

  • I think Lyndsey250, said it pretty good, what you both want out of life. Where your life is headed rgt now, and kids etc? If he's interested he'll go w/the flow and shd maybe start asking you questions too. Hope all work out.

  • Ask in general questions that add up to what you are needing information for.

    Answer by grismelda at 5:47 PM on Jan. 25, 2011

  • I'm just wanting to get to know him better...I don't necessarily need specific "information". I want to move beyond talking about silly stuff, but I'm not ready to take it to a REALLY personal level...kwim?

  • do you talk outside of FB if not exchange numbers maybe send some pics to each other cell phones, talk about meeting for lunch or a drink or something!
