  1. 1. Are you the type of person who would rather start up a conversation or are you more along the shy quiet type who would not initiate a conversation?

I almost always start the conversation because I have quite a bit of experience with starting conversations. I have an extrovert in me.

I've always had trouble with coming up with what to talk about. It's harder than you think. I usually end up making it feel weird and forced, so I just let the other person start up the conversation.

Doesn't matter to me as long as we have something to talk about.

I'm somewhat of a mixed type. In truth, I would prefer not to talk to people. At all. In fact, human interaction is something i actively hate.

 

However, when thrown into the situation, i could do so easily. I have the tendency to emulate a social butterfly around people who i prefer not to know the true me. Not only that but i do so quite well.

 

This usually happens at my workplace or at my college, but it doesn't really matter where. If i feel the need to maintain a certain image, i can achieve this almost effortlessly.

I can actually be pretty talkative if someone else starts, but in terms of starting the conversation, I'm about as effective as a frozen chunk of rock on Pluto.

I am not really the best at starting conversations.

But if it is a topic that I am interested in I can talk quite a lot.

My ability to start up a conversation with someone comes and goes. Sometimes I can talk to people with no issue, sometimes I am very shy and can barely muster up small talk. I always end up saying the wrong things, some cases to look 'cool' and the like.

 

Pro tip, before you greet someone, always have a topic in mind.

Mostly I'm too shy to start a conversation and I hate it so much, because it's sometimes sad for me when I want to start talking with someone but something keeps me quiet :(

But I'm very talkative when someone start the conversation with me.

I'll admit I'm really bad at starting and upholding a conversation. Keeps me just to myself.

I always try to avoid conversations with strangers whenever I can. As Ihave no idea how I appear to other people, I am afraid of being awkward or falling into the cringe category. I love having conversations about things I love, so I try to force myself into it since I can't help myself to keep my mouth shut, terrible results usually ensue.

I find it easy to start conversations, though I don't like participating in them much. I'm shy and quiet with decent social skills despite my social anxiety

I still havent started a conversation on this side yet, despite me being on here for years and having over 1200 posts.

So yes, im shy and i dont start conversations normally.

And probably never will.

Not here nor in real life.

I tend to be a talker. I'm better at carrying on a conversation than starting one, but once I get going, you can't shut me up sometimes.  :please:

I'm never the one to start up a conversation. The other person always has to do it.

 

I never really learned how to keep up a conversation either, so they're usually short-lived and awkward.

Though I try and start a conversation I'm not really the best at it. I also become nervous when being in a conversation with someone because sometimes I feel as though I am boring them. However, after I get to talking and knowing the person better I become confident and very talkative.

I'm really shy and quiet so I'm not good at starting conversations. Absolutely not in real life, that is the most difficult task for me. Sometimes I tend to initiate conversations on the internet though, because that way the person I'm talking to doesn't notice my awkwardness and I have more time to think of what to say.

I can't talk. Like, at all. Every time I try to, the words come out all wrong. I hate myself so much for this. I'm always so awkward and nervous in in front of others.

I can tell you from my personal experience and past that it is a matter of training and being confronted by it.

It really just depends on my mood, but for the most part I have no trouble in starting up conversations. There could be a complete moment of silence and then I perk up with some completely random out of the blue question, a bit like Pinkie Pie, I can be a bit oddly random like that. :laugh:

I don't have any trouble with it. Although I think our culture makes it hard for some people with all the nuances that we're programmed with.

It kind of depends on where I am, but in general I'm quite able to start conversations. I usually don't care to, though.

I rather not and have someone to be the one to start up a conversation. Although depending how I feel, I don't like being bother.

I always feel like I annoy people when I talk to them, so unless someone talks to me, I stay quiet. I figure if someone actually wants to talk to me for some reason, they'd probably do so.

I've always struggled to start conversations. When I do, they usually end up getting really awkward really fast. On the other hand, if I don't start a conversation, no one usually comes to talk to me, so I don't really have a choice if I really want to socialize. It's only recently that I've been able to become more comfortable with online conversations.
