    What Are People Doing?

    As new to EP as I am, I have read many things on this site; it is why I joined the site so I could read the content deemed only for those 18 and older. And seeing what people say here I can see it's value but I have to wonder in the light of things like my space and face...

    *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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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.

    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...

    It's overwhelming me, and I don't know what to do about it. I want to talk about it, but I'm terrified of opening up too. I don't want to have to write that word.
