I Think..

It's a responsibility thing.  I don't want to be the one responsible for keeping the conversation going, so I don't start it.

Plus, I'm shy.

Give me a topic and I'll talk your ear off about it, but I'll rarely to never actually start any conversation.

I totally agree with you. It's hard to be the one "leading" the conversation, especially when it's just meaningless small talk. I am the same way in that if it is something I am interested in I can talk forever. However, if I am left to talk about non-important things like the weather, I drown.
