How to stop mind going blank when talking to someone?

I do this around a lot of people if I don't know them well. They could be talking to me and I'll just go "yeah..." but I can't think of any proper response, my mind just seems to go completely blank! It really is frustrating though.

I might be meeting up with a guy sometime and I worry my mind will go blank when we talk in person (I talk fine online most of the time). I don't think it will be as much of an issue if I know him better but just at first I don't necessary feel nervous... just clueless on what to say.

Any tips/advice?
