Most Helpful Guy
I know how you feel, I have had social anxiety and had a specific fear of silence in conversations. What I've learnt is that the best conversations come from nothing. If you plan certain topics to talk about, the conversation is going to go stale quickly (because in my mind they tend to be overused topics like what sport does he like, what does he study).
Try talking about slightly obscure things that you have observed during your day. A question usially has one or two answers, but a statement opens up the other persons imagination or past experiences. Maybe the mailman posted your neighbours mail in your letterbox again, or some idiot tripped over crossing the road.
