We all have the potential to be more interesting. It isn’t about becoming the CEO of a massive global company in order to have some interesting life experiences to share. You can simply be you. What you need to do is be able to look at the traits and life experiences that you have, that make you different to other people. If you are looking for some ways to make yourself more interesting, whether it is for your online dating profile, career, or just general life, here are some of the ways that you can do just that.
Learn something new
The more that you know, the more places that you’ll go, according to the most quoted person ever, Dr. Seuss. So if you want to go more places and be more interesting, then you need to learn more. This can be a variety of things, from formal education to doing a course in something like sign language. You could learn about things like Forex Trading or other topics that interest you. Learning how things work, and having more experiences to add to your life list, all help you to be more interesting and help you with more than just having something else to talk about.
If someone is set in their ways and their opinions, then they can be the least interesting people around. Although having opinions and thoughts on things is really important, it is important to listen to others as well, to help you to form new thoughts and opinions. If someone thinks something different to you, then never speaking to them again isn’t going to help anyone. Instead, take some time to listen to them and their point of view. Even if you will never agree with them (and you don’t have to), it is good to be curious as to why other people think differently from you. It makes you more interesting and definitely makes you less ignorant.
Have stories ready to share
In social situations, especially with new people, there can be some silent moments and awkwardness. This can be anxiety-inducing, to say the least. So for times like this, have something ready to say. It could be a story about a trip you took or about a funny time at work. It could be something more serious or a story that you remember from high school that taught you something. But having a couple of examples ready to go in your mind, can get the conversation going, and overall, make you a more interesting person for someone to be with.
Similar to being curious, asking questions is a great way to be more interesting. When you ask questions about other people, but not in a way to pry, it can give you a real insight into someone else, their life, and seeing things from a different perspective. Being a good listener is part and parcel of being an interesting person too, so another element of this to bear in mind.
