Foodie friends and relatives are often the ones who give you the most valuable advice.
For those of us who are used to giving advice in the same way we give advice to our family members, the Irish paper is no exception.
Here’s what we think is the key to getting a great conversation.
Give the person the time.
If the person is not interested in the topic, ask them a few questions and let them have their say.
This is a great opportunity to engage with them and to get to know them better.
A conversation usually starts with someone asking for advice on something or other, and the person will usually say something along the lines of: “How do you feel about this?” or “I think that might be a problem”.
If you get the question right, the person can then move on to more personal and deeper discussion.2.
Ask a lot of questions.
If you’re asking for a lot more than you think you can get, then you’re probably asking too much.
You’re not just asking the person for advice, you’re also asking them to answer some questions about themselves.
If they can’t give you an answer on the topic you’re talking about, then perhaps you should give them a bit more information.
For example, do they smoke?
Do they have allergies?
Do their friends drink alcohol?
If you ask this question, you’ll probably get a different response from the person.3.
If possible, get a photo.
If there’s no photo available, you can still get a good idea of how the person feels about something.
If it’s something they’re passionate about, they might give you a bit of insight into why they are passionate about that thing, or they might ask you some general questions about their day to day life.
If someone is a hoarder, for example, you might get a better idea of what they would be willing to do to help you get rid of your possessions if you asked.4.
Ask them if they can take a photo of their hands.
If this isn’t an option, then ask them if it would be OK to take a picture of their fingers and thumb.
If no one can provide the answers you need, ask again.5.
Ask if the person has any concerns about the topic.
If your friend or relative doesn’t know what’s going on, it can be helpful to ask them to describe the topic in a bit detail, or to give you some specific information.
This can be useful if you want to be sure you’re getting all the right information.6.
Be willing to learn from them.
It’s OK to ask questions about the subject and listen to them.
You might have some interesting and relevant information to share, and you might also learn something new.
It might even be that your friend can help you make some adjustments to your diet or to how you live.
But if you have any doubts about the person’s views, then don’t assume that you know everything they’re going through.
You can also ask them questions that will shed some light on the issue, or ask a question that will make the issue clearer for them.
This could include: “Do you eat gluten?”
“How long does it take for you to get sick?”
“What is the average length of a week of eating?”7.
Be prepared for a difficult conversation.
If an issue comes up that you are not ready to discuss, it might be best to wait until someone is willing to share their thoughts about the issue.
This way, you won’t be feeling the need to ask any more questions.
It can also be helpful if you ask about something they have never discussed, such as eating a vegetarian diet.8.
Don’t be shy.
The most important thing you can do is be honest.
If a person doesn’t have any objections, then it’s OK for you and your partner to talk about the matter in private.
If, however, you have some reservations about sharing the information about the situation, you should discuss it with your partner and/or with a member of the group.
They will then be able to offer a more constructive way of thinking about the idea.9.
Try not to push the issue too hard.
Don.t try to push a topic too hard, even if it’s an issue you’re not completely comfortable with.
In some situations, it’s better to say nothing and wait for other people to make up their minds.
If that’s not possible, then just say that you don’t feel comfortable sharing the issue in the first place.
You may even be able for your friend to take part in the discussion, and perhaps help you figure out how you can be more productive.10.
Do not try to force the issue down their throat.
You don’t need to force an issue down someone’s throat, but you might want to think about what they might think of it.
Sometimes people who feel strongly about something will say something like “I don’t know why people
