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

Find a dice and assign a number to each girl. Throw the dice.


The number you hope for at the moment you throw the dice, is the one you'll want to keep.

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 sure how the maths of this works...you've been turned down by 3 times as many women as you have even thought about asking out? Do women just walk up to you in the street and say "I'm sorry, I'd rather just be friends"?

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.

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.


Gozd in gora poj,
silen ženimo hrup,
uboga gmajna, le vpup, le vkup,
le vkup, le vkup z menoj,
staro pravdo v mrak tulimo,
da se pretulimo skozi to zimo

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...





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.

Indeed I was.


How is everyone going with the first challenge?

Do any of you need advice on how to go about it? Anyone do it but think it could have been done better?

A very awesome AngryGoldfish.

If everyone is going alright with this challenge we might start a new one in a couple of days.

hmm, I'll think about it.


I never start conversations with random people. I hate when people start them with me so I've always assumed everyone else hated it too.

People start random conversations with you and you assume that they dislike it?

hmm i probably should do this im usually not comfortable meeting people unless im with a group



Being in a group actually makes it worse for me. When I'm around a group of people I tend to be even more quiet. I normally end up finding the nearest corner and standing there while chain smoking.

thats why i prefer a group im really quiet around people i dont konw very well so i can let the group do most the talking. once ive beena roudn someone for a while then i open up. im not one of those people who can talk to anyone i have to have a mutual interest to strike up a conversation if you know what i mean
#77
in. Im terrible at talking to new people. When im with my friends I'm good and I actually talk but when im alone with a stranger I can't think of something to talk about to save my life.

I don't know how I'm going to go about this but whatev's #yolo

I don't really mind talking to people if I'm in a group or if I alone really. I just have to get comfortable. I guess I'm naturally quiet or shy or whatever. Once I get comfortable though I never shut up.

Like when I start new classes at school I'm usually very quiet the first one or two weeks then I'm fine after that.


What I meant earlier is I just don't like when complete strangers try to start irrelevant conversations out of the blue. It just catches me by surprised and gets me all flustered and I usually say something stupid.

Today while working at Tim Hortons I made a few girls laugh, but I don't know if that should technically count because I have to talk the customers anyway!
