I prefer to listen, I generally don't try to start a conversation unless it is necessary to get something done.
I'm shy. I let others start conversations.
I'm the starter . I think people want to talk they just don't know what to say I have started conversations while standing in line and other people will join in . sometimes we let someone go ahead of us just keep talking
My friends know now but they would ask how long have you known that guy and I'll say I don't know him never seen him before in my life
I like to start with a Kansas City icebreaker: How 'bout them Royals? Drives the smart ones away right away.
