11. Common Ground
There are certain specific : cars, sports, action movies to name a few.
Find out what his likes and dislikes are and try to steer the conversation in that direction.
And like I said earlier, don’t pretend to be a fan of something just because you think it’ll get him to ask you out.
At the same time, don’t shoot down by saying something like “I HATE sports.” Seem genuinely interested and listen to what he has to say.
And if you really hate something he likes, try to playfully argue with him.
That will bring you closer.
Remember the keyword: playfully!
