Talking to people - September 12th 2011, 07:59 PM

This is less to do with relationships but more to do with relations with people if that makes sense, but if this is in the wrong place move it until your hearts content.

Ok, so i feel like a really boring person when it comes to conversation of late and i'm not sure what it is, i have little things to talk about... its getting really annoying.

I'll try to explain, when i talk to someone or someone talk to me it feels like the conversation is dead or as boring as writing an essay on how paint dries. It makes me feel like the boring one even if they have nothing to say.

The reason why i've noticed this now is because it usually isn't like this for me, i usually can hold a good conversation for a while.

There are only so many times you can ask 'what subjects do you take' or 'do you like the subjects?' that sort of thing.

Is it right for me to feel this boring when i'm usually fairly exciting (i'm not trying to sound arrogant or anything haha). Do people on the other end of the conversation also feel the same. I'm not sure maybe it'll get better the more i get to know them.

Plus i think the root of this is that i think i like someone who is like soft spoken but friendly (i think you understand, she's not the loudest person)

Meh, i'm not sure i just feel boring

I think everyone at one time or another has felt like this. Especially, if your with friends you've known your entire life and can't figure out what to say. So, the best thing you could do would be to find other topics to talk about. Even if they don't interest your friends. Google some great topics for conversation, and use them the next time you find yourself not finding anything to talk about. Use jokes you've heard in the past, or anything that might interest you.

While you may think that you're boring, the other person may feel differently. If you feel that you talk about boring topics, then don't bring them up in conversation unless needed. Change it up a bit. I like the idea of researching exciting topics on google. Talk about things like current events, your interests, their interests, etc. Try to get to know the person. Really engage in the conversation. Because if you look as though you're engaged, they'll become engaged as well. Which will make them not bored, and make you feel less boring. Genuinely care about the topic you're talking about. Ask them questions about themselves. Some people enjoy questions, and like to talk about themselves (not in the bad way). Good conversation takes practice. Good luck! :]
