How else would you meet people if you never talked to strangers?

Indeed, but the people you meet are normally first spoken to due the fact you're both attending a mutual event/occassion or at a place for socialising such a pub or sports group. People in shopping centres are generally there to shop, and thus will probably be less than appreciative of a somewhat awkward teen walking up to them and engaging in banal conversation. Change shopping centre to pub/college/uni/club etc and it might work, but if you start talking to random people who are trying to shop with their car parked on a meter is just going to annoy them and thus make you feel less socially competent.

Where I live we don't have meters lol but it can be like a guitar shop where you can talk about guitar or any specific shop where the interests will be mutual

Not quite. But I have had that response when, for example, just asking the time. Or if a bus that's just gone past happened to be the number <whatever one I was after>.
The ratio would be even higher if I included those who I've talked to who immediately bring the conversation round to their boyfriend.

The best thing you can do is stop giving a fuck about how often you're being "social." Seriously there is nothing at all wrong with being an introvert, it usually means you're smarter and have a fuller understanding of things.

Sign me up. I won't be hitting on any of le ladies because I have a girlfriend, but I could stand to be more social and less awkward with people that I'm not already close with

But I like my cynical sociophobic self.

Y U hatin'?

Also, a quote from a documentary we watched in school, where foreign immigrants talked about Slovenes and their habits, traditions, etc.

Quote:
I think it's very shocking always how brutal Slovenes are to eachother. Even in a place like New York which is famous for being rude, people will hold doors open for you, they'll stop and let you go and if you fall someone might come and say 'Hey, can I help you up?'. I've been here [in Slovenia] for a few years and I don't really remember anyone holding a door open for me.


It's apparently my nature to be like this.

Just sharing, I'm done with the first mission. A cheat, but still done. Might do it again though, this doesn't really feel like a win.

While I was in line at the cashier a man and his son before me were already paying. The cashier was busy packing their goods, the man and his son suddenly walked away without taking their stuff and just left. The cashier then chased them to give their stuff. When she came back, I said something along the lines of "They must have severe ADHD" (With a light face). And she chuckled a bit.

So I do, and they tell me they're on a scavenger hunt and one of them (fortunately the hot one) needs a kiss from a hot guy.

So...






Yea, sign me up now.

EDIT: I'm not bad at socializing but I could still use some work, so I can be more relaxed and smooth.
