I’ll give you an example of what I mean. Suppose you’re on a date and he tells you that he just finished up an important project at work. If you’re genuinely curious about this project, you can say something like,
“Oh wow, that’s great. Tell me more about your project.”
He’ll be flattered that you’re interested in what he does at his job.
Or if he says: “Last weekend was great. My younger brother came in from out of town and we had an awesome time hanging out in the city.”
You can respond by saying, “Cool! Tell me more about what you guys did.” It's a great way to continue the conversation and learn more about his relationship with his brother.
But, like anything else, it’s important not to overdo it or go to extremes. If you say “Tell me more” after every statement he makes, he’ll probably think you’re a bit weird or that your vocabulary is extremely limited!
Your best bet is to say it only when you’re genuinely interested in finding out more about something he just told you.
When used properly, “Tell me more” is a great way to show interest, build rapport and connection with the guy you’re dating. I’ve said it many times to the men I’ve dated and it’s always worked like charm!
The next time you’re on a date, give it a try and let me know how it works for you!
