Re: I don't kow how to talk to people >.< - June 27th 2010, 12:21 PM

Hmmmmmm well thats a hard one :P
But i used to be socially retarded too and i somehow cured myself by talking to random people down the street
Like just today i talked to a cab driver for half an hour
practice makes perfect :3

and if they don't ask questions back... leave a lot of "loose ends" lol ^_^ like say something about your dog and allude to something else like "OH! MY BEAUTIFUL DOG OF BEAUTY IS IN BEAUTY SHOP OF HEALING (hospital for you non-beautiful people :P) AND I AMZ MUCHO SORROW-FILLED!!! DO YOU HAZ A DOG???" and they'll ask "Why yes, I do. Thank you for asking, my dear friend. But, why, may I ask, is your dog in the hospital?" Just say things like that (all that flair is just for fun :P) and it should <hopefully> make the conversation flow more? lol

And just bring up something the person is passionate about and listen for a bit (but don't fake listen most of the time you can tell the difference between real listening and fake :P) and just move the convo from there like asking questions about it and etc etc ^_^ idk i just made that up as i typed and i'm not well known for giving the best advice lol but it works for me and everyone seems to <somehow> love me

PM me and hopefully i'll come up with something less retarded :P

I think the fact that you worry alot makes you believe you're socially awkward
I think everyone is like that sometimes
People love to talk about themselves, ask them questions about themselves! also I heard this quote awhile back, i cant remember who said it-- 'the sweetest sound a man can hear is his own name'
and i find that kind of true

find common interests you have with other people, show interest in them

I'm quiet too. But just be yourself and topics to talk about will come about when they present themselves.


I came here to help out, so if you wanna talk or just need someone to bounce ideas or issues off of or something else then send me a message and I will reply as soon as I can.
