How to be confident? I have no idea. For better conversation, it helps to listen. There's a chance they might not even notice you haven't said much while they were having fun talking.

I am probably not the right person to ask as I feel uncomfortable talking much of the time. But in my humble opinion you should talk about things you know alot about or are passionate about. Confidence doesn't come from inaction. I think you have to take action by speaking up on topics you know alot about or are passionate about.

Personally, what I do is I pretend in my head that I'm someone else, well rather another version of myself which is confident, and I just talk to people in a way I'd imagine the confident version of myself talking to them, or how a confident person would talk to me. I don't know If I'm explaining it well, but if you try and get in a mindset where you pretend to be confident, you'll start to feel confident, at least this works for me most of the time
