Nothing to Say

Sometimes, I just don't like to speak. I don't believe I'm much for small talk, and I'd rather listen to another person than the sound of my own voice, besides I'm not that interesting.

I don't understand people who feel the need for mindless chatter. I'm perfectly comfortable with silence in the company of other people.

It's the sams as being on E.P! <br />

People can see our light on and wonder why we are not speaking to them!<br />
Do they realise how many stories there are out there to catch up on?

I suppose so. My family and friends have the idea that if I'm not talking, I'm angry or something must be wrong. It's quite annoying :)<br />
I don't dislike my voice, its more of my preference just to listen to other people. When people ask me personal questions during a conversation, its my nature to "blank out". Once a coworker asked me what I liked to do in my free time, and it took me a good 3 minutes to come up with anything to say:)

As long as the silence is not filled with the expectation that someone will raise a new subject, I like silence sometimes as well. If I don't feel like talking, I usually don't. Why try to force something out? Especially excruciating small talk. No one's very interesting when small talk is involved :)<br />
My family is used to me being that way, but with other people, it's not so easy to just relax that way.<br />
Why would you rather not listen to your voice? Do you dislike your voice? Just remember that other people won't feel the same way about it. They know you as you are and most likely don't see anything wrong with your voice. I think lots of us forget that, which is why we perceive faults that the people that know us can't see. Don't worry :)
