I lack social skills. Just talking to someone is extremely difficult. I envy to those who could carry conversations for hours. How is that possible ? I can barely have a 10 minute conversation. Whenever Im in a two person conversation, there’s are always awkward silences, and the other person always does the talking like if we were talking about parties, if he/she said “I had a good time at the party”. I would have no clue as to what to say next, I tend to say something like “that’s cool” or “ oh I see”. I hate to sound like a boring person. I try to think of something interesting to say but it’s hard. When I’m by myself, I think about the questions people asked me and I could think of answers right away but not in front of people, why is that ? My sense of humor isn’t the greatest. I never had the chance to make friends after high school because all of my friends lived in different areas and some students who lived an hour away or so had to stay at residence. I don’t have a car. I talk to them online but only 2 friends I talk on regular basis. I could talk to them about anything because I grew up with them but not with new people, its hard. It’s always been like that. Some of you probably will say “Just try your best to make friends and once you meet the right people, you wont have any trouble talking. That’s not true. I have met some people who would be perfect friends and I can never say anything to them. Sometimes, I would say boring or wrong things. They just slip away. I have confidence but I am also aware that I don’t know how to be social. I don’t want to live that way. I always dream being able to converse with any people, laughing and more. I wish I always know what to say. I just don’t know how I can ever be that person Anyone feels the same way? I want to learn some social skills. This seems like a lot to say but I have been thinking about this for a long time. Any advice would be appreciated.
