I Enjoy a Good Conversation

    Good conversation, lubricated with a sense of

    humor and touched with a sincere desire to listen first before being heard, is an essential element of personal chemistry. Quality talk is interactive. It is dynamic. It is fun and satisfying. It flows smoothly and has range -- like a powerful symphony, or the best sex. Fluid...

    Stop and Say Hello

    Nothing lifts the spritis like a happy conversation. It does have to be witty or prolonged. Running into a friend you haven't seen for a while as you wait in line at the grocery store can be the high light in the day. I grew up in the South were people always stopped to...

    I do enjoy a good conversation

    but I hate when people are either really slow at replying or just really dull in the conversation.

    Non Small Talk Is the Best

    I don't really mind small talk as much as some people I have met who detest it and will talk about nothing but philosophy and anarchy.. as that too becomes tiring.. but I would so much rather discuss something stimulating than chat to my neighbour about her dog's haircut...

    I love talking about really deep

    and cheesy things like the meaning of life and if true evil exists and such. I'm cheesy, but I think that stuff's meaningful, you know?

    It is a dying art in today's society.

    . most people are so guarded or afraid to interact. I love conversation.. and love people.. we are an interesting species... once you pull us away from reality TV and worthless rhetoric.

    I Get Tired of Talking About Parenting

     Being a stay at home mom I tend to meet other women with children and it can be a great ice breaker, but there comes a point where I dread hearing another sentence that begins with the words, "Oh, (kids name) said the funniest thing today..." Don't get me wrong I...

    it's very hard to keep my attention in a convo. I get bored easily, I enjoy a little excitement lol. It takes a really smooth person to keep my attention, so far a lot of people have failed XD but hey I've probably failed many times as well. I like smooth convos. In depth...

    Look Who’s Talking

    Sitting at the Algonquin Round Table with the “Poison Squad,” Dorothy Parker replied to a fellow member’s request to use the word horticulture in a sentence with the following, “You can lead a horticulture, but you can’t make her think.” Now, that is my idea of a good...

    Before I never really knew how to have a good

    conversation, so I push myself to have conversation with people. Because I feel like the people we meet in life have messages for us in the stories they tell. One of my close friends, I had met at work, was a drug addict, came right out of jail into a halfway house. We had...

    It's Hard

    It’s beautiful when you find someone

    that is in love with your mind. Someone that wants to undress your conscience and make love to your thoughts. Someone that wants to watch you slowly take down all the walls you’ve built up around your mind and let them inside.

    The Artlessness Of Conversation

    People often talk about the Art of Conversation, and how it has been lost.  I can understand, in part, what they mean.  There is certainly a required skill necessary for polite conversation-- one must be able to read people, and must know, when such measures become...
