I will be the first to admit that I am kind of a nerd, and I have horrible social skills so I struggle talking about things that I percieve not important (like sports, emotions, etc). Its just stuff I literally know nothing about. I prefer to talk about things like business, stocks, investing, technology, and stuff like that, which works great with most men who are into that kind of stuff, but very few women I meet dont really seem interested in talking about the stock market, business practices, or anything remotely related to that, in fact most of them seem turned off by me that those are the only things I know how to talk about, and they usually dont go for a second date. My question is, what do you talk about on a date? I try to get her to do the talking but in my experience that doesn't work that well, because she does all this talking and I will know her whole life story, but she won't know anything about me, so its very awkward. There was this one woman I dated who I kept asking questions and getting to talk, and we went on like 4 dates before she found out that I had 3 brothers, meanwhile I could name her parents, grandparents, entire extended family, etc etc etc. I really just dont even know what to talk about. Before you ask yes I am this bad socially, in a business setting I perform very well, but I can't for the life of me talk to women.

Find a girl who is interested in that stuff. They do exist. Don't settle for the superficial ones who only worry about whether or not the rain will ruin their $500 handbag.
I'm actually quite interested in the topics that you mentioned. You just gotta find a girl who shares your interests.4

Don't talk about yourself - talk about her. Ask her open-ended questions, and listen to what she says - don't just nod your head. . . listen.
You'll find something in what she says that will correlate to something you like and you'll find something to talk about, but make sure the conversation goes back to her. Build rapport with her, show interest in the things she likes, and all will go well.
If you like business and 'market trends', then view this as a sales pitch. In order to sell something, you'll first want to build rapport by showing interest in the person you're selling to. And, obviously, you're the product you're selling.0
