I Am Not Good At Conversations

    It's hard for me to start a conversation

    and I find it difficult to make small talk however 1 word responses are my best. If I'm asked a decent question I can give a decent response but after that it just gets quiet.

    There is only one person I can actually keep a

    conversation with and that is actually interested on this website and I am glad I have conversation with her. But I am really bad at keeping conversations going in other cases and it always just stops when I'm not interesting to the other person xD

    So I am a fuckk awesome listener, but after a while people tend to get all grrr like because I'm not contributing very much. In my defense it's not my fault. I'm an introvert; not an extrovert. But anywho, instead of writing a six paragraph rant type thing explaining it all I...

    I'm a great listener,

    but when it comes to keeping a conversation going I'm clueless. I have no idea what to talk about so I just.. Don't talk. It's really annoying, and I just started a new school and still don't have friends (lol, I don't mind tho. Have lots of friends outside of school). But...

    I don't think so any way.

    I'm awkward in person....like really awkward. It's not that I don't want to talk it's just that I have no clue what to say and I'd very much like to avoid sounding stupid.

    Fast And Not So Furious.

    As a listener i'm awesome. As a speaker, I suck. I've been told by way too many people that I talk too fast. I've even been told by someone that I should try using punctuation in my speaking ''comma, full stop, exclamation mark'' (LOL). Also, I can't seem to look people in the...

    I can't start one, I can't hold one.

    ..I think this is why it's hard for me to make friends and I don't know how to overcome it. I'm just not much of a talker

    I try so hard to have conversations

    but I suck at them. I'm a listener, just that. I barely talk. Most people get frustrated with my lack of words and just stop talking to me all together. :/ Which makes me rather sad because I love it when people talk to me. I hate being boring. v.v
