Dismissg small talk as unportt is easy, but we 't forget that deep relationships wou't ev exist if it wer't for casual conversation.

"ost every great love story d each big busess deal s with small talk," he exps. "The key to successful small talk is learng how to connect with others, not just counicate with t."
a 2014 study, Elizabeth Dunn, associate professor of psychology at UBC, vited people on their way to a coffee shop. One group was asked to seek out teraction(互动) with its waiter; the other, to speak only necessary. The results showed that those who chatted with their server reported stly higher positive gs d a better coffee shop experce."It's not that tg to the waiter is better t tg to your husd," says Dunn."But teractions with peripheral(边缘的) bers of our social network matter for our g also."
Dunn believes that people who reach out to strgers feel a stly greater sse of belong, a bond with others. Carducci believes developg such a sse of belong starts with small talk."Small talk is the basis of good ners," he says.
