Talking to people

Meldiseus's picture

Well like the title said "talking to people" is what I want to talk about right now.
I've never had good talking skills. If some people are talking nearbye and I have something I want to add or ask them about ... I just feel like I'll be butting in, being rude, or just get in the way and when some one talks to me or I talk to some one else it all just seems to slowly come to a stop.
I think I know the steps to having an actual conversation with some one but my mouth just doesn't want to work.
People who know me know that I don't talk a whole lot and that I tend to be silent but with people who don't know me ...I'm afraid that they think I'm dissing them and even if they don't think that what about first impressions.

Hey thanks for any help you can give.

I've got the opposite problem...

I'll just randomly interrupt a conversation with whatever I wanted to say, and realize 1/3 second later how annoying that is... with the result being that people I talk to a lot generally end up either really liking me or hating my guts. Oops.
Then sometimes I get in random moods like what you described, and absolutely can't talk to people no matter what. Whether I want to or not.
I have bad social skills...
