To keep a conversation with a boy, try to remember what he tells you and expand on it in the future.
In other words, if you notice that he tends to talk about a particular topic, try to learn more about that topic on your free time.
The next time you talk to him, bring up that topic and show that you have learned some about it.
Further the questioning by asking him more about it.
In this scenario, you are taking what he has already told you about in a past conversation and expanding on it.
This really enables the boy to feel like you were really paying attention to what he had to say.
This in turn makes him feel more comfortable elaborating about the particular topic.
This also makes him feel compelled to learn more about something that you may like as well and may be passionate about.
In essence, he feels the need to return the favor.
This really helps in keeping a conversation going with this guy and expanding on it.
Another great way to keep a conversation going with a boy is to infuse humor into your conversations.
Don’t be afraid to tell a joke, be goofy or just say something funny when you are talking to him.
It could be something that is related to what you have been talking about or it could just be a funny story about something you witnessed or experienced.
The more humor you can introduce and infuse into the conversation, the more likely this boy would want to keep the conversation going because he knows that it will be fun and thrilling.
You can also find ways to compliment him from time to time as you converse.
Be careful about this.
You don’t want to compliment him too much.
This may come over as you simply trying too hard or even being a little bit desperate at times.
So you do need to moderate it.
However, giving him compliments from time to time can be a very effective way to make him feel more open and receptive to you. It would make him feel good to hear that.
People like knowing that there is something about them that is appealing or desirable.
This allows you to break through to them and appeal to one of their most basic instincts.
The desire to be appreciated or loved for something. It is human nature.
The more you make him feel good about himself without overdoing it, the more he will want to keep the conversation going because you are making him feel special.
Also, to keep a conversation going with a boy, you do need to ensure that he knows to some extent that you do have at least some interest in him.

Guys tend to like this because it gives them a reason to continue the conversation and keep pursuing.
When there is a sense that there is mutual attraction, a guy would feel the need to continue putting out effort in conversation with you because he knows that he isn’t wasting his time.
