Instead of trying too hard, charm your way to her heart…through the art. Ask her why she chose this exhibit. Why did she choose this specific gallery? Does she have a favorite artist showing? What’s her favorite part of the painting? If you're afraid or nervous when it comes to initiating conversation, asking about the artwork, rather than telling her about it, is the perfect ice-breaker. It’ll lead to further conversation and make you sound less pretentious and more interesting.
