Connect on an emotional level  This is crucial in developing meaningful relationships. When you listen to someone emotionally, you show empathy. When you empathize, you recognize that someone else is as real as you. Empathy is one of the most endearing and resonating emotional connections you can have with someone else. A pinch of questioning does not hurt  Remember always, their story should take greater priority over your story. Questions prevent you from talking about yourself. It might sound simple and straightforward, but the next time you catch yourself worrying about a lull or making a good first impression, ask yourself questions so you prompt yourself to listen. Think about, and feel, what the other person said. Asking questions will prevent a common mistake, which is focusing on yourself instead of other people. It sets the stage for you to form an emotional connection with someone. Let humour do the right job The hard truth is,  humour doesn’t make you memorable. Humour is just seasoning. It shouldn’t be the main ingredient in the recipe of your conversation. A lot of people try too hard to be funny. They force humour when it’s not there. Yet humour breaks the emotional tension that’s building. Although you might find tension awkward and uncomfortable, it can be equally powerful if you use it correctly.]]>
