Hi!
Small talks don’t take you further if you are planning on that.
But to suggest- If it’s on Instagram then
1. Hey!
2. React to their story in order to start a conversation/reply by β€œasking something” on their story/write your opinion on the story
3. If they are someone slightly familiar then Hey! I wanted to ask/needed help.

If the other person replies and the talk feels like easy one then you have a chance to drag the conversation by continuing with something else. Else let it be a clear short to the point thing.

If it’s on Whatsapp, same by asking help or wanted to know something. Maybe give a call and cut it. Message by saying Sorry, by mistake. Then see the type of reponse they give and ask, How are you and what’s going on etc.

What about in person? You smile and then it gets awkward

In perso is the worst thing I tell you. Since you aren’t known to each other so it becomes short to talk to.
The best way to continue is again if the conversation is going smoothly. Ask about his/her things and see if they ask yours. Tell them something about what you did. Talk about this pandemic. When they say something listen carefully and ask/tell about that thing again so that it stretches the conversation. Now, you can’t just drag and drag, you both aren’t friends so it has to come to a full stop. After a good small talk say bye! Talk to you later or see you soon. See if they respond in the same way and exchange numbers or anything.

Thank you. This is what I usually do. And I say things out openly, but it often gets misconstrued and misunderstood. So, there’s always this fear that holds me back.

One should be always straightforward but then you should also know what are your intentions with that person. For example, if you are trying to hit on him/her then the nature should be that it get’s understood and not feel judgy. Because you want them to like you.
On the other hand if you lending your hand for friendship, then they either go ahead or step back by seeing your attitude as a person. If they also want the same then over a period of time both will understand each other.
