What do you usually talk about when you meet people for the first time?

I usually talk about something like my favourite dishes, news, lastest movie. Honestly, It is difficult to talk with strangers because I don't know what subject they would like to discuss. I am going to be comfortable to talk just in case that is my friends.

Hello, when i meet someone for the first time i usually ask him/her to present himself/herself. I want to know, for example, his/her name, his age, where he/she lives, something about his/her study and why he/she is here. But i also like to ask him/her something about his/her strenghts and weaknesses and something about his hobbies and his/her free times.

When I meet someone for the first time, I asked him or her about general information such as: name, nationality, workplace and etc.

Me too ....

I usually ask their name and job, I ask where they are from if they are not local Swedish or local, and I sometimes ask where they live but not always people here are too shy and it is not too easy to make contact.

When I meet someone for the first time I usualy ask about basics informations like: name, where he or she lives, work, hobbys. Only convenient questions not awkward.

When I meet people for the first time, I usually ask about of your profession, where this person born and live, what do you like to do and I offer my help.

when I meet people for the first time, I'Il start getting to know them, then offer them my help, and finally say goodbye.

When I meet person for the first time I usually talk about the name, work place, family and nation. Asking privet information should be limited.

Thanks wow piece of listening
