I Dont Like Talking Much

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 241 People


    I'm only silent around people I'm not super familiar with, so I can talk normally to my closest friends. However, I never feel the necessity to both start and keep up a conversation with anyone else, even through texts. I can, however, get a little awkward with not-so close...

    Actions almost always speaks louder than words......and remember Mom's saying," Empty trucks rattle the loudest!".......having witness so many times times that people's words don't match up to their actions......guess that is one reason I like my actions speak for me......

    I can write all day. I can text you via the phone, but when it comes to actually talking, I clam up. I am not a very knowledgable person, so I have that fear that when I begin a conversation with another person I will appear dumb. I know I am not dumb, I just don't know random...

    It's not that I don't want to talk to people,

    it's just that my anxiety prevents me from enjoying most forms of social interaction. Talking usually makes me extremely nervous and after just a few minutes I'm emotionally exhausted. I do try though, every once in a while haha.

    Talk About What??

    They ask me why I don't talk much.  I always reply the same way. " What am I supposed to talk about??" I am really awkward if I don't think before I speak, so it is kind of nerve-wracking.  I really don't like long pauses before responses, so I can get very...

    I guess on the Internet is a completely

    different story. I'm extremely talkative actually but it takes a really unique person to be able to get me into open up. It takes a understanding that not many people have the time to give and until I see a person who can take the time to understand they're not worth my time to...

    Not Much To Say Here...

    I don't like to talk very much. I will write something on paper or in a blog all day long, but speaking out loud, not so much. I feel like I can never get the words right or maybe I will stumble over my words... I like to think I am smart, but I have dyslexia and so I do stumble...

    The reason I don't talk

    that much is because whenever I open my mouth to say something, all hell breaks loose. I say the opposite of what I want and get so frustrated! That's the reason I don't talk. Everyone also tells me to stop being so quiet, but that's how I am! I'm quiet because I can't say what...

    I'm No Conversationalist

    I'm not a conversationalist at all. I prefer to be on the quiet side, never saying much. I like to enjoy the sounds of nature and music as long as my hearing holds out. The most talking I ever do is through my stories. At least with them other people can get an idea as to what I...

    Im a naturally isolating

    and shy person, but I've recently changed into a new school and it's very disorienting because many people are in closely knit groups, but im all alone. Being all alone doesn't bother me, what bothers me is that these people have known eachother for maybe a week and already seem...
