It wouldn't hurt to think of emergency conversation topics. While, I'd rather avoid the news or anything too serious, it wouldn't hurt to keep yourself updated about what's going on. You never know what piece of news might save your date. Common interests are a great save as well. So do your research to avoid those all awkward silent moments. This will also make you seem selfconfident, interesting and aware which are always good qualities!
