Default Re: Do you hate small talk?

I hate small talk, because, I dont know how to small talk...?
I meet someone and inside I am having a complete conversation telling myself, now you say this, now you have to say that, in order to look normal on the outside..Most of new encounters are very awkward, because I literally have no idea what so say/how to act.

GreenAlien2 I can definitely relate although it seems I might have an easier go at it. I normally relate to people based on some piece of observational evidence and then let them talk about themselves and ask questions.

Yes yes and yes. Hate it so much I often skip reading many of the post here bc let's face it, many are made up of small talk 😴😴😴. Its been said small talk is essential to day to day communication however that is untrue, every conversation has an opening for some depth however 9/10 people have a shallow sense of mind.

I'll take that opening, stretch it out wide, peer inside, and see how deep the rabbit hole slides. You didn't leave me too much to work with there, other than Borderline69, which smells like meat in the jungle. In any regard, what do like to talk about instead? What sparks your depth in discourse?
