Everybody stutters sometimes.If you are nervous around other people, particularly members of the opposite sex, stuttering out of nervousness is normal.It can be difficult to talk to your crush if you have a stutter like King George from The King’s Speech.
Step 1: Let her know that you like her.
If you are too stressed about stuttering, the girl you’re talking to might never know that you like her.Look in her eyes.Making eye contact with a girl lets you know you want to know her better, or just straight up tell her you like her.When she is talking, lean in closer to her.She will be reassured that you are interested in what she has to say.You should tilt your head towards her.You can look up at her face if you look down every now and then.Don’t look around the room or over her head, as this will make it seem you’re more interested in finding someone better to talk to.
Step 2: Say hello, or introduce yourself.
You won’t have to introduce yourself like you would someone you’ve never met if you already know each other.Use words that don’t cause stutters and be confident in your language.Don’t worry if you stutter when saying your name or greeting her.Move slowly, taking all the time you need.Use your body language to do most of the communication.Say something like, “Hello, I’m Joe.”When she tells you her name, smile and repeat it.If her name starts with a letter that is difficult for you to say, you can use it to your advantage.This is a good way to introduce your stutter.
Step 3: Don’t be afraid of certain words.
Some sounds and words are more likely to be blocked by a stutter.If you want to talk to a girl, talk at your normal speed.Slow down when you stutter on a word.Allow yourself to stutter if the word doesn’t come.Maintaining a sense of relaxation in your brain will require you to keep your lips, tongue and jaw moving gently.All the time is needed to get the word out.Not to panic is the most important thing.She won’t mind if you stutter.
Step 4: Pause between words.
According to some speech therapists, a stutterer should stop stuttering after the first word of a sentence.The girl you are talking to isn’t likely to notice if you’re confident.Pausing occurs naturally during speech.If you want to finish the statement with a smile, you can use eye contact along with your pauses.
Step 5: Ask her questions.
You could ask about the situation.You can ask questions about her interests, such as, “What’s up with these snacks?”After an initial introduction, you can ask more open-ended questions, such as “What do you do for fun on the weekend?” or “Have you heard that band in concert?”
Step 6: Tell her about your stutter.
Tell the truth and be honest.You are more likely to get stuck in a stutter if you dread stuttering in front of her.You can talk about how it feels to stutter.One in 100 people worldwide have a stutter, and this fact remains the same regardless of culture, so you might want to tell her about the interesting aspects of stuttering.Many famous people, including Charles Darwin, had persistent stutters into adulthood.There is no cure for stuttering, but there are many entertaining treatments that have been devised over the years.People eating carrots while they talk is a famous cure.
Step 7: Make a statement about her.
You might have a conversation if you make an observation about her.You could compliment her or bring up a shared interest.Paying a compliment can cause a girl to become flustered and not know what to say.If this happens, be prepared with a follow-up question.If she doesn’t respond, follow it up with an open-ended question, such as, “What did you think of that last song?”
Step 8: You can build your self-confidence.
It is possible to bring a sense of self-confidence into a conversation with a girl if you remember that your stutter does not define who you are.Everyone has feelings of inadequacy at times, no matter how confident they are in public.If you want to identify with others, try not to compare yourself with them.You can only see what they look like on the outside, but you can’t see how they are feeling inside.You can’t engage confidently with a girl if you have feelings of self-consciousness.
Step 9: Stuttering can be voluntary.
It will be difficult for you to talk to girls if you react to your stuttering with fear and panic.One way to get over your fear is to practice stuttering with people you feel comfortable with, such as your parents or a close friend.This is called voluntary stuttering.It gives you the feeling that you are in control of your stuttering.Talk to a close friend or relative for about 5 minutes, and stutter on purpose at least 5 times.It’s a good idea to stuttering in the very first part of the conversation.If you want to ask a question or give a food order, go to a fast-food restaurant.These exercises are meant to help you feel confident through a stutter.It won’t eliminate your stutter, but it will make you feel better about stuttering when you’re talking to a girl you want to impress.
Step 10: Practice stutter modification.
Stuttering can cause you to feel confused, embarrassed, and unable to think when a stutter comes up.If you stretch out the initial sound of a word, you can pull through the stutter to the rest of the word.You can repeat this practice with your parents, or a trusted friend, if you linger on the s-sound and pull through to the o.Would you like to go out for dinner tonight?If you want to challenge yourself, try stuttering on words that are difficult to say without stuttering.
Step 11: You can improve your listening skills.
Chances are you will miss out on what a girl has to say if you are so intent on getting through your own speech without stuttering.She will assume that you are not interested in her, which might be far from the case.You will be a better partner if you pay attention to what she says.If you want to put aside your self-consciousness about speaking, you can stutter right away.When it might crop up, you won’t have to worry.You should notice her response when you stutter.Did her way of interacting with you change after you stuttered?She didn’t seem to mind.
Step 12: There is a support group.
The difficulties of talking to girls with a stutter can be understood by other stutterers.Support groups are a good way to learn and practice new skills.There are groups for children and adult stutterers offered by the National Stuttering Association.A stutterer may attend a support group for the first time.Groups are often open to parents, friends, and families of people who stutter, as well as professionals who want to learn more about stuttering.
