    I Never Do.

    People wonder why I never talk. Some people think I'm scared to. Some people think I'm stuck up. None of this is true. The truth is that I simply don't know what to talk about. I'll talk if someone talks to me. I'll answer anyone's question. But never leave it up to me to...

    I Don't Know What To Talk About

    Sometimes, I don't know what to say. When I am starting a conversation, I have to think. It is usually difficult if I don't know the other person well. Also, when entering a conversation, the topic may not be interesting. Therefore, I can't relate to it. However, I am trying to...

    Don't Want To Talk

    The truth is I feel very angry about having to talk.  I grew up with a mother who despised my shyness and would regularly rage at me to talk more, go out and make friends.  I didn't have the backbone to stand up for myself so I would desperately try to think of things to say...

    *Awkward Silence*

    Yeah....I never do. There has to be something in the conversation that sparks a memory or something...otherwise I look on the msn homepage or something to find out what to talk about..Usually I'm with the right people so I don't have to use resources to talk to my friends. I have...

    I Have Nothing To Say...

    I moved to a new state a few years ago and realized that I am quite lonely, which is weird for me because I have always been such a loner. I am having great difficulty making new friends and the reason is because I am so quiet. How am I suppose to connect with people if I...

    It Happens At the Best of Times

    I don't know what it is..or why it happens, but i always feel like i have absolutely nothing to talk about. Which isn't really cool when you're trying to get to know someone. It drives me crazy.

    Never Do

    And now is no exception! Kidding. Honestly though, I never know what to say, so I just fill the silence with random **** that sounds stupid and usually offends someone; even though I wasn't trying to offend anyone, just trying to fill the silence and not seem like an idiot...

    Wretched Silence

    Silence is an all too familiar state for me. But yet I see this all around me: people having normal, flowing conversations. I see this happening and I can't help but to think that my mind is conversationally unimaginative. I'm not afraid to talk in a social situation, it's just...

    Um..erm...

    It's true. I really don't know what to talk about. I just have nothing to say. A normal conversation on this or that topic, I can handle. But anything else? What do people talk about when they're "opening up" or whatever? I feel like a very boring person, because my insides are...
