Although the Pit does feature a small-but-vocal group of Alpha++ males, it's safe to say that a significant percentage of The Pit has difficulty engaging in social interactions.

I challenge you (yes, You&trade to start a conversation with a stranger during the course of the next week, beginning Monday November 19th. Post results in this thread.

Q. But what if they think I'm weird?

You post on an internet forum for people who don't play guitar any more. You are weirder than anyone you talk to could ever imagine. Embrace it.

Q. What if I get raped?
Don't flatter yourself.

I don't suffer from anxiety, but I do find it difficult to start conversations. I feel like I have nothing to say, or at least to begin with that will get the ball rolling. We'll see how it goes.

Feel free to explain why this is a bad idea.

Do this anyway each week

Talked to a random girl today while waiting to cross the street, got her number.
I have a huge fear if rays.

Might go to the pub with my flatmate tomorrow, will try then. But egh, talking to strangers.
#10
You could make it more interesting. Like, you have to approach 10 strangers in a day, and maintain conversation for a certain time limit. And they have to be girls, unless you're gay or a girl yourself in which case they have to be hot young studs.

And you have to wear a fedora.

Are they strangers if we see them all the time and kinda know eachother but never actually talk to them? Cause I'm cool with that, but someone I've never seen before? I never even have a chance do do that even if I wanted to.
#14
I talk to strangers almost every single day. It's in my job description.

I sort of just did a few hours ago, though I guess he started it. I was at Rite-Aid applying for job and this guy saw me and said "you know the place I work is hiring" and I said thanks and asks where he works and one thing led to another and apparently we both have a few mutual friends.

Stab them first with your razor-sharp wit.

I'm flattered that you think I have razor-sharp wit, but I'd probably just scare them away with my spaghetti. But you know what fuck it, i'll try.

I talk to strangers pretty regularly. It's much easier to do on a campus than out in a normal city.

I almost never meet a stranger because I am stuck in a rut currently.
In my heart I'm with you

every night

i'd talk to strangers if i had a legit excuse to. but i don't so it feels weird if i do.
That which does not kill us makes us cookies.
#23
I do every time I work. Although, I'm really trying to be more social to people I have already met, like my coworkers. I think some of them think I'm anti social when I really just have nothing to say to them.
For your sake I hope heaven & hell are really there, but I wouldn't hold my breath.




Guitar & skateboarding. Do what you want.

I made conversation (5min< with everyone at a party last week, which is unusual for me, I'm putting it down to being on Tramadol that night though.

Irritating that I need to be on drugs to enjoy talking to people, I can do it without, but that I find hideously mundane.

Been talking to randoms a lot more often very recently though.
#25
people who are vocal about being Alpha++ males are actually sad lonely douches.

I talk to strangers everyday. I find most of them to be incredibly boring, but I talked to this cool old jew yesterday.

But I don't get a lot of strangers in my basement! I'm already friends with the spider here, how will I find strangers to talk to?

A pretty hot girl sits in front of me in astronomy, seems nice. I accept

Sometimes I talk to myself too...but never on the internet.

because i could die

Who would kill you? They'd probably run away screaming.

Statistically speaking, if you interact with anyone, then you will die at some point in your life. You may as well just stop talking to people. That won't save you from death, but at least no-one will know (or care) when you die.
