  • i am currently trying to work on and practice my social and communication skills. been watching those self help youtube videos and re-inflamed a certain joy and need to talk to people after isolating myself for a long ass time.

    i think i can be charming and interesting but my biggest issue currently is finding ways to start and open up conversation. questions are sort of my go to, the other day i texted somebody asking how they discipline children without being a d*** under the pretense that i had an impression of them being good with children. but when they replied i kinda missed the opportunity to get deeper in the conversation lol but im aware of that and would do better next time

    other than that i be strugglin really hard to find something to start off with. how do yall do it?

    i hear u but im a real life dumbass bro idk if i can trust myself like that lol having no thinking time is inevitable during the conversation but before i start it i always kinda feel the need to think of something way in advance and map it out

    like last opening text i sent i wrote and re-wrote hours prior i even thought about which lines to text separately and which to send in one lmao

    completely dependent situationally

    are you in school, do you work, do you have friends, what kind of contact are you referring to, etc

    you type normal anonymously on here, im sure you do fine texting

    I say it with energy and use it to just flow into talking about my surroundings or what brought us into this contact that logically means something is in common between the two, and if they just no sell you then it is what it is
    I鈥檓 23 also bro, about a year and a half ago I was in your spot, and still freeze up sometime, idk if I matured or all the X**** I took just taught me to freely shoot the s*** about whatever鈥檚 on my mind without thinking these days lol

    It is all about delivery and body language though if you鈥檙e trying to make a friend/non platonic friend
    Also whats up slime or slimey is a bonafide hit with any woman that you know isn鈥檛 into rap culture or deep enough to get that term, automatically starts a convo

    bro just say whats on your mind, thats the true you

    and the truer you are to yourself the more engaged people will be just naturally, idk how it works

    its like when you tell the truth everyone believes you easy
    but when you try to lie people sub conciously pick up on that and are more skeptical

    just be genuine and if that person doesn鈥檛 like what you鈥檙e saying or doesnt engage with you, then its just a clear answer that this person isn鈥檛 for youu

    you鈥檒l find like minded people that are just as silly and just as in their heads as you, just communicate so they know you鈥檙e out there

  • Maybe it鈥檚 because of my career choice or love of stand up comedy and me being a sponge but I can jump start a convo if you know what I mean energy wise, kind of like an act which sounds sociopathic but moving on, I don鈥檛 buy into all this s*** but I鈥檝e been told I give alpha energy for some reason so something that I do does that, I think I found enthusiastic at times but also just kinda having a 鈥渢o cool for anything鈥 vibe consciously increases people approaching you.

    How do you initiate contact? Actually make the move to talk. How to get better at it? Keep doing it, and don鈥檛 hold any expectations or ideas of how the conversation should go. Just do it, the more you do it the more wittier and charismatic you鈥檒l become.

    i hear you and all i can ever do is be myself but my problem is that sometimes ill just genuinely not have anyhing in mind to start off a conversation with

    and truth be told i am sure there simply are a few ways to initiate an exchange that will be more likely to be successful than others and i need pointers on those 馃摑
